    Wonder Trade Recruiting
    June 2019

    Wonder Trade recruiting is back again! Our recurring segment in which we work together throughout the month to send out quality Pokémon nicknamed with a special URL out to the world through Wonder Trade, to lead those Pokémon's recipients to the lovely Lake Valor.
    This is how we do it:

    - Breed a bunch of impressive Pokémon.
    - Nickname them all "tradepkm.net", which is a redirect URL to Lake Valor's homepage.
    - Send them out en-masse on Wonder Trade, letting us know every time a full box makes it out.

    It's as easy as that! Now, when I say "impressive Pokémon", I'm talking about Pokémon with great IVs, or with egg moves, or with preferable natures; all that good stuff. If you're unsure what any of that means, just ask me, Absolute Zero, and I'll be glad to clarify. Now let's be generous to the Pokémon Trainers of the world: Wonder Trade sees enough unloved Pikipek as it is, so we should give away something nice.

    Rules

    - All Pokémon must be nicknamed "tradepkm.net" (so people are redirected back to LV when they try that url).
    - For this to count, you must post complete boxes. You may send these out anytime during the month, but only full boxes earn points.
    - Your must take pictures of your entire box as proof before and after Wonder Trading or you will not be eligible for prizes. Check just about any previous edition of this event for an example of what works.
    - To get prizes for getting someone to join through our WT, please post again here with a link to their profile page or their Intro Lobby thread.

    Prizes

    - For every full box you trade away, you'll earn a nice 20 PokéPoints for yourself.
    - If the Pokémon that brought a new member here has your OT, you'll get another-another 50 PokéPoints.
    - This means that if you send out just one box of 30 Pokémon and bring a member here, you'll get 70 PokéPoints and a new friend. Is that great or what!
    - Once you send out a total of 10 boxes, you become eligible for the Wonder Trade Operative medal on your profile page. This is 10 boxes total, not 10 boxes in one month; so please pace yourself!

    Additional Information

    - This thread will close at the end of the month and a new one will go up not long after.
    - If you're unsure of how to breed impressive Pokémon, or if you think it's too hard, send me a PM or find me in Discord. It may seem like a time consuming process but surprisingly, it is not. If you're a first timer, I'll even help you set up with a neat little breedable Pokémon for free. Or if you still feel like you're bothering me, and I assure you that you are not, then you can check out my fairly exhaustive how-to-breeding article here https://lakevalor.net/threads/negative-zeros-guide-to-breeding-excellent-pokemon.23112/.
    - Please try to make your photos clear. You don't need to go all-out with an enormous 4160x3120 pixel image, but it's important to be able to read things like your OT in these screenshots. Please refer back to just about any previous iteration of this event if you're looking for clarity on what makes a good picture for this purpose.


    Now for the bonus theme!

    As was stated in the previous event, this month's theme will be Sinnoh Pokémon!

    The land of Lake Valor! Such cute Pokémon as Mime Jr and Bonsly and Happiny, as well as Riolu and Munchlax and and Shinx who grow up into fierce fighters, and everyone who shares a landmass with these Pokémon, even from older generations! All boxes filled entirely with Pokémon who can be found in the full Sinnoh Pokedex will gain 1.5x points!

    Next month's theme will be: Dusk Mane and Dawn Wings! Pokémon who share their types with Solgaleo and Lunala (that is, Steel and Ghost and Psychic, or who gain those types upon evolving) gain bonus points. And how about other lions and bats too? Shinx, Zubat, Litleo, and Woobat also count towards full boxes of Sunsteel and Moongeist. Just be cognizant of being sure the bats look good at first sight with egg moves and maybe berries... we don't want people to think our community is giving away weak floodbats.

    All right, that should cover it. Now let's get busy and spread the word!

    I bred a shiny competitive Riolu a while back and have a bunch of others left over with some difficult to get egg moves and an ideal nature. Pretty much ready for competitive battling after some leveling, evolving, and a couple of bottle caps. I have so many boxes full, so I guess I'll try to get some trades in at some point.

    I've got two boxes of Piplups with at least four perfect IVs each. In addition, the Piplup in box two also all have their hidden ability, Defiant.

    I didn't get anything specifically worth pointing out, though a lot of the Pokémon that I got have good IVs.

    I’ve definitely stepped up from last time! This time I have a full box of Spiritomb.
    -Bold nature
    -Perfect (or near perfect) IVs in at least HP, Defense, and Sp.Defense. (Some had as many as 5 perfect IVs.)
    -Egg moves Pain Split and Grudge

    [​IMG] I laughed because as soon as they showed the trainer’s name, I knew they would give me a hacked Pokémon. Also I never realized that shiny Crabominable looks kinda sunburnt.
