Hi! Welcome to the PokeMart! How may I help you?
This thread is designed to make Pokemon trades easier. Sifting through the GAME ON thread can be a little difficult. Answers to trades can be missed, etc.
So here is how this is going to work. Everyone who wishes to participate in perpetuating the Pokemon slave trade will make ONE, and ONLY ONE, post in this thread. This post will contain everything you would like to trade/give away, and everything that you would like traded/given to you. Edit your post when these lists change. DO NOT make a second post in this thread. The entire point is to make things less cluttered, and multiple posts by the same user defeats the purpose.
Assuming everyone does this right, you can easily scroll through this tiny li'l 1-3 page thread to see if there's anything that you would like, and either edit an offer to trade into your post, send a PM to the potential trader, discuss it in the normal pokethread, or meet the person on IRC or IM to work out the deal.
To make this thread nice and tidy, please format your post in the following way:
Here, list all of the Pokemon that you are handing out for free. These are pokemon that you don't expect anything better than a Bidoof for.
Here, list all of the Pokemon you are willing to trade away. These are pokemon that you would like something fairly specific in exchange for them. Next to each Pokemon you list here, write a hyphen and list what you want in exchange. Alternatively, you could be a bit more vague, by asking potential traders to "make an offer" or "give me a decent bulky water type."
Here, list all of the Pokemon that you want but do not have. If you'd like, you can also write what Pokemon you would be willing to trade away in exchange.
It should also be noted that you can give away/trade/request both items and Pokerus as well. For the sake of organization, try not to mix items and Pokemon on your lists. For instance, list all of the items you want to give away before listing any of the Pokemon you want to give away.
The PokeMart is now open for business. One last time, allow me to STRESS the fact that you ARE NOT to make more than one post in this thread.
