Default Wonder Trades

Woah, this thing is wacky. You can do a completely random trade with someone else to get whatever they don't want. Of course, it's obvious what will happen: junk, junk, junk.

I can see a perfect use for this: getting rid of all your breeding fodder.

Mine:
Give own Litleo, get Scatterbug (JP)
Give own Scatterbug, get Azurill named BIG BUNS
Give own Bunnelby, get Kakuna
Give own Pikachu, get Scatterbug
Give that Scatterbug, get Ledyba
Give own Caterpie, get Croagunk named Ninjrog
Give own Weedle, get Scatterbug
Give that Scatterbug, get Pansage
Give own Fletchling, get Litleo
Give that Litleo, get Espurr (JP)

Then I ran out of Poké Balls.

Any interesting trades yet?

It's bad enough that it's a Bidoof, but its nickname "SURPRISE!!!!" just rubs salt in the wound. D:

I managed to get a few Pokémon from later in the game, such as this Gulpin (kind of a quality test too).

I received a Haunter this morning, which promptly evolved. Not everyone puts junk on there.

I've sent off Torchic, Goomy, Vulpix and Amaura into the Wonder Trade. I've recived some pretty nice starters which let me get a Ditto over GTS to breed like wild before the 3rd gym. Keep in mind, guys, if you keep the Pokémon you received through Wonder Trade, your OTs accumulate quickly, enabling you to be more successful in the lotto to win that Masterball! Be sure to pump WT full of your breeding defects!

Speaking of which, I managed to match two numbers today in my first time even trying it. Guess it's working.

I've gotten some pretty alright stuff. I got a Pupitar, Torchic, Mawhile, a couple Ralts[es..?], and a Gourdtergeist or whatever it's called. I've put some good stuff in, but have mostly gotten crap back. I think the good makes up for the bad, though.

I've done a few Wonder Trades as well; I've gotten a US Skiddo, a Japanese Pancham, a Zigzagoon (Though from where I can't remember), a Bunnelby from someone in Texas that has a Japanese name, and something else I can't remember. I've traded some similar Pokemon as well; mainly just ones that I've already caught and so I figured I'd catch another to trade.

I just put my extra captures and Chespin to WT. At least I can do something useful about them.

Some people would probably also enjoy getting a starter Pokémon.

I'm about to stick up three dozen Jolly Zigzagoon. (Anybody want one?) Wonder how many people will pass them on, thinking they're crap. (Well, their IVs aren't all that great.)

BEST IDEA EVER. Wouldn't this idea try to tie into the Friend Safari? I dunno. I think the key point here is to get Pokemon with several ID numbers.

Wonder Trade is great if you're trying to win the lottery or need to dump three boxes of breeding.

I finally had my first Wonder Trade. Gotta know what it is first before I do the challenge, right?

I gave up a Basculin (I think) and in return I got a Growlithe, which was pretty sweet. It was so instant and random... I want to catch a bunch of Pokemon so I can do this again. Or be a nice person and give out very good ones. I can see why this'd be an interesting new option for Nuzlocking.

Y'know, I've noticed almost none of the original fodder on there anymore, but I've still been getting plenty of the elemental monkeys. I received a Kangaskhan earlier today.

I have a lot of trade fodder that I've gotten via Wonder Trades. Sometimes, it feels like Wonder Trade is actually a junk dump ground, but...

I can't get enough of that wonderful feeling every single time I perform a Wonder Trade. You know, new foreign Pokémon entries in the Pokédex, lottery IDs, being easier to raise due to the experience gain boost... yeah. (I particularly appreciate the Ralts...)

I had to get rid of a bunch of Octillery that didn't have Suction Cups, since I was going to try the fishing chaining thing. What better way to rid of them than with a Wonder Trade?

In return I got a Craniados, a Bunnelby, a Haunter (which evolved to Gengar, of course), and best of all; a French Kakuna. It's called Coconfort~

Forgot to mention this before, but I highly suggest anyone interested in this thing and interested in playing legit to do all their Wonder Trading before the Pokémon Bank comes out. I'm positive at least some hacks (notably mass clones) are going to be allowed and make Mew common as dirt, not to mention shinies won't be as valuable, sadly.

Depends how good the hack detector is. Unfortunately, you are probably right.

Nope. But when I was looking up Ditto on the GTS the other day the only requests were for Xerneas, Yveltal, and Volcanion.

What the heck is a Volcanion? Oh, so you can filter the Pokemon you want in return? I haven't used this yet so I wouldn't know.

Sheesh, Wonder Trade is great now! I keep getting breeding fodder, which means often Pokémon with decent natures and/or decent stats.

Or teasing with a Brave Solosis...the Jolly one is a joke. >_>
Jolly Riolu isn't half-bad, though.

Some people use Wonder Trade to evolve, then try to trade with the person and get it back. When did you get it? Have any acquaintances that wanted to trade since?

Or maybe you were just super lucky.

Nope, the person hasn't even been online since the trade. I hope those people realize how absolutely dangerous that tactic is, or the gravity of putting anything on Wonder Trade in general. I've already heard stories of people receiving legendaries and shinies.

In my last 60 or so Wonder Trades, I haven't received a single Scatterbug (but plenty of Fletchling and Lv. 1 stuff). Guess people must've started collecting Vivillon. I remember those things being so abundant at the start.

I got a French Eevee(Evoli), I don't think it will keep the French if it evolves though. So, damn.

P.s. I'm not dead!

Sweet, I got a Chansey off Wonder Trade today. Don't know if I'll do anything with it.

Also, I think Ditto is banned from Wonder Trade or something.

I traded one of the two Ditto that I caught once, and it worked just fine. Maybe you're just getting unlucky?

Oh, it's working now. It wasn't working earlier. Hmm. Temporary bug?

I've won the lottery literally every single time I've played, a PP Up or PP Max every time. Thank you, Wonder Trade.

Let this be a reminder to always check your Pokémon before trading them away. I received a Ralts holding a Gardevoirite.
