Welcome to the Trading Machine! This is the place to trade Pokémon with other Trainers.
  • A trade starts by one person posting that he/she wants to trade and the other person replies he/she will trade. Once both people agree, they trade.
  • You must have a Staff member or Approver to accept the trade before it becomes official.
  • If your Pokémon evolves by trading, you can use the item Cable Link (unlimited use, buy it at the PokeMart!). If an item is needed during Trade Evolution, you must buy it from the PokéMart. You can still trade evolve here for free, just be sure you buy the trading item needed and have your Pokemon hold it.
  • You can't trade your Starter Pokémon to anyone. It is yours to keep forever. You can only trade-and-trade-back to evolve it, like Machoke to Machamp.
  • You can trade for cash, items, Pokemon, or a mixture of any of these.
  • You can't trade any Pokémon that are participating in a current, active forum battle/contest. If you do trade, either your trade will be canceled or the battle declared over. This is done by Staff or an approver.
  • Both trainers MUST post themselves in the thread.
  • Both trainers must post the full stats for their Pokemon in their trade post. Linking to a post in your stats is not acceptable.
  • Where a mart purchase was made (eg TM Case), quote or copy the relevant purchase in your post, do not just link to it.

A Pokemon/item/etc.'s valid trade value is anywhere between (value - $2,000)/1.2 for minimum and (value * 1.2) + $2,000. The values on both side of the trade must fall within these ranges.

A Pokemon's value is the average Character Count of its most basic form (for example Magikarp is Easiest worth 3-5k so it counts as 4k under this system), Mart value, or 10k for any revived fossil other than Aerodactyl or Spiritomb, plus any TMs, SMs, MTs, or BMs it has been taught. Berry Store price has no bearing on trade value. EXP has no bearing on mon value BUT EVOLUTION ITEMS DO (i.e. Soothe Bell, Thunderstone, etc.). HMs have no bearing on trade value.

For example, Monbrey wants to trade a baby Charmander with the SM Acrobatics to a new player. Charmander's trading value is 15,000 (Mart Price + SM Price). The new player offers up a blank Mankey from a story he wrote. Mankey's value is 7.5k (Average Character count for Simple rank, between 5-10k).

Based on these mons, in order to be approved, Charmander has to be worth less than Mankey within the equation. However, when we do the math:

Mankey (7,500) x 1.2 + 2,000 = 11k

Charmander (15,000) < Mankey (11k)

In this case, Charmander is too high a value. Either a new Pokemon needs to be traded or Mankey needs EMs added to increase its value.

If Mankey's trainer added TM Taunt and TM Bulk up, that would increase Mankey's initial value to 12,500. If we plug that back into the equation: Mankey (12,500) x 1.2 + 2,000 = 17k. Now the trade would be approved, as Charmander's initial value (15,000) is lower than Mankey's inflated value (17,000).

Unrevived fossils (except for Odd Keystone and Old Amber) have a trade value of $5,000. Revived fossil (other than Aerodactyl and Spiritomb) have a trade value of $10,000. Odd Keystone has a value of $30,000, while Old Amber has a value of $42,500.

The trade value rules do not apply to trades where both sides were purchased from the Pokémart specifically to be traded.
