People were doomposting about not being able to trade at all and now that that’s been debunked the goalpost moves again.

Thats a lie. People were complaining about not having GTS (upload a poke, requesting what exactly you want, and what gender, level etc). The Y-Comm trades are NOT that. Y-Comm is old style trading or wonder trades. Nowhere as good as the GTS.

Has anyone figured out how Ball Inheritance works in SwSh? Really hoping I can get the starters in anything other than a PokeBall. Also how early can we access the IV Checker?
Assuming not much changed from Gen 7 (bar the new Egg Move mechanic), it likely works the same as Gen 7 that breeding two of the same Pokémon gives a 50% chance of the offspring inheriting the father's Poke Ball. Sadly if this is the case Galar starters in anything other than a Poke Ball would be illegal (assuming they cannot appear in a Max Raid Battle or the wild).

I have legitimately not seen anyone saying you could not trade period, only people being upset about the removal of the GTS. Which was an incredibly convenient service that I'd say it's fairly reasonable to be upset about the removal of.

Fairly sure people werent claiming there was no trading at all. The discussion has always been about the part of GTS where you drop of a pokemon asking for a specific one and where you can look for specific pokemon. No goalposts were moved.

We’ve known normal trades/Link Trades were in the game since the very first trailer. No one was ever worried about that.

GTS being scrapped is what people are upset about. Link and GTS trading are two different things.

This is why I've been treating all pessimism about the game, with a grain of salt.

I think he/she means implied. As some of the posts (buried now, so not looking for them) started to get carried away and pharsed things as if you needed Home and NintendoOnline subscriptions to use GTS and the like features.

That being said, the few unique features GTS provided might still become available somehow.

I do suspect the GTS feature everyone is complaining about is probably going to be available for home, since they're making an Mobile App for it that allows for trading.

10 pages back is page 803. There is literally nobody claiming it there. Also, if you bring up anecdotes, the burden is on you to point readers to the right direction so we get context. Otherwise it just looks like you're running out of things to blame people dissatisfied with the game on and are just making up stuff to spread "haters are making up false stuff on this game" narrative. And sure, some people do, but why give a select few so much attention and portray it as if it is representative?

That's why it's handy to quote the people you're talking about.

Besides, a comment 10 pages ago by different people is not the same as moving the goalpost. Most people were very aware trading was still a thing and were talking about that specific gts feature. Some people way back theorized that part may become part of home, which i doubt, but we have no info on home so who knows.

"Boo hoo, i dont get the poke i want in exchange for one i have tons of"
So trades are nerfed because of the deeper competetive aspect would make it too easy to buff that pokemon. You can already change natures, iv, evs, breed out abilities and shiny chain. The only thing you cant control ingame is your pokemons gender. What is the need for gts when theres only a dex of 400? You really need that litwick from spain?

Doesn't that run both ways since you didn't provide evidence?
Besides it's not about explicit claims, but all the implications people were portraying. As stated before, I'm not giving evidence since I rather not waste my time searching thru dozens of pages of posts, but I do recall a few posts seemed to be strongly implying things that they had no evidence of.

How do you know?

It literally does the same thing.

From what i have understood, it's a specific person to person trade, aka both people need to be there to perform the trade and you need each others code to initiate the trade. (tell me if i'm wrong, coze i didn't trade in lgpe) Which is very different from GTS where you drop it off and anyone online is able to see what you're offering and send you what you need regardless of whether both are online or not.

Version exclusives for one. Maybe some people want to Wonder Trade hundreds of time trying to get that last one for the dex, but some others actually want to play a game.

There's forums that we're on right now that trade friendcodes hourly. Anyone on these forums saying they cant get a pokemon they want without the GTS is simply being irresponsible with their resources.
