    What experiences have you had with the GTS negotiations?

    Got lucky last year when I received a female Japanese dream world Vulpix! Only had to trade something common. Came in very handy when I later bred my shiny drought vulpix :D

    I have given away a few shinies to people who wanted them, more or less.
    Otherwise not much. I got a hacked Porygon-Z once, which wasn't very thrilling.

    I haven't had any luck with the GTS negotiations. I've tried it a few times, but each time ended with the other person disconnecting/quitting before we traded any Pokemon. It doesn't really matter to me though, since I can get pretty much any Pokemon I want by trading with myself.

    Yes. I don't have the means to transfer my Gen 4 Pokemon to Black White so I am surprised how well I have done with just the Pokemon I got from Black. Everything clicked once someone took pity on me and gave me a Zorua which I breeded the hell out of.

    Other notable Pokemon I have received through negotiated trades have been a couple of legends and "rare" pokemon like Milotic, Groudon, Rayquaza, Kyogre, shiny Vulpix (traded for->) shiny Lucario (traded for->) shiny Lugia, shiny Porygon Z (looks legit :)), shiny Mamoswine, shiny Clefairy (traded for Porygon Z shiny).

    I think I gave Unova legends for most of those which I promptly restocked by depositing a Zoroark I leveled up in the GTS. :)

    Most of these came before I got on this site and people showed me their legend for the dex entrees and for the ability to search them out in the GTS myself.

    I use it to get legendries from other gens. I get sick of people asking for "COLOUR CHANGE" Pokemon then show you a bunch of lvl 100 shinies. and here i am with a shiny Woobat...

    I got a zekrom, level 100 audino, level 80 eevee from there.

    I've done relatively well. I've been trying to get a female Eevee, but my day-care keeps cranking out males so I hatch them and just put them up on the GTS for little things i'm missing like starters, powerful Pokemon, etc.

    Though this was in HGSS, I put up a level 1 Eevee, spawned from the useless one Bill gives you, and got a level 100 Dragonite. Post-E4 Kanto was a total curbstomp.

    They usually DC, though I've given away a shiny Jellicent for a Kanghaskhan. And, sadly, a Charizard caught in a Master Ball from Johto for.. I can't remember.

    The best I've gotten was a Panpour.

    Nothing special, but it was good since my starter was Osha and I then wouldn't have to hunt tall grass as much ;3

    I got a couple of dex entries from there.
    Also when i started playing white i found all the other starters for a quite reasonable offer. :D

    I have horrible luck on the GTS negotiations. Everyone is always spamming unhappy faces no matter what I show them. It seems to me all they want is legendaries or to show off their hacked pokemon.
     
  14. oh yeah! a couple weeks ago, i found a guy who gave me a shiny landorus, but i traded it so i could get a raquaza. (im trying to get like 20)

    I've only gotten a Pikachu and a few Pre Gen Starters on the GTS negotiations. I don't bother with is much because I usually get jerks who show off their shinies and then take them back.

    I did get a Japanese Frillish for breeding. I forgot what I gave up for it but it wasn't anything major. Just something that I can get in-game.

    Never because of error code 86420...

    I've done okay with Negotiations. It's pretty good for obtaining pokemon you haven't seen and other normal poke trades.

    Look elsewhere for shinies, though. I've only had about a 15-30% success rate with shinies. There's a very high chance of at least something being wrong with it. In my experience, it's usually the PID. If you do look for shinies, make sure you offer only what you want to part with. DON'T go out of your way to get a shiny on there, no matter how legit it looks.

    negotiatans have been so-so. I would recieve some good trade(so far I've gotton all but one of the starters from all over) but other times people just show off-Like the other day I swear I never saw so many shiny porygon-Z's I ****ing hate looking at them now, damn AR abusers!

    I stopped using GTS negotiations ages ago. No matter what I did, I somehow always got a partner who wanted nothing less than level 100 legends >.< So I stick to the regular GTS now.
    What I really wish they had was a custom search that let you search for what people want. Like "hmm, I have 100 leftover bulbasaurs... let's see who needs one" Now THAT would be useful. think of all the people I could help every time I fail at MMing a shiny!! :p
