    Wonder Trade Recruiting
    May 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.


    - 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.


    - 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 Starter Pokémon!

    Those oh-so popular Pokémon that really make half of the marketing scheme of this delightful game possible, all boxes Wonder Traded that are filled entirely with Starter Pokémon gain 1.5x points for you at the end of the month! And just to make the bounty sweeter, let's include Eevee, Pikachu, Pichu, and all their direct family members in this list too!

    Next month's theme will be: Sinnoh Pokémon! There's plenty of time to stock up on Shinx, Riolu, Ponyta, and any other Pokémon who can be natively found on the geographical Lake Valor's home region, and make them into nice gifts for trainers around the world!

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

    Well, Absolute Zero, I just happened to be trying to breed a Piplup with 4 egg moves before seeing this. What a strange coincidence! But I am able to participate in this event! I am offering a Timid Piplup with one perfect IV (in Sp.Attack) and the the following egg moves: Agility, Mud Slap, Aqua Ring, and Icy Wind.
    While I consider myself a lousy breeder, I think I did a good job with breeding these Piplup! I feel more confident about breeding and I might do this again!

    I've bred three boxes so far. The first one contains a bunch of Chikorita with at least 4 perfect IV's (including one that has a full 6 perfect IVs); the second box has Squirtle that not only have 4-5 perfect IV's but also the egg moves Aura Sphere, Aqua Jet and Dragon Pulse; and finally a box of Torchic with 4~5 perfect IVs. Through this I have learned that breeding starter Pokémon can be extremely difficult if you don't already have a female with good IVs.
    I got a handful of Pokémon with 4 or 5 perfect IVs that I'm probably going to use for trading, plus a 6IV male Scyther that will be replacing the one I already use to breed bugs, and a (definitely hacked) shiny Reshiram with perfect IVs that's at least the second or third Pokémon that I've gotten from that trainer. I've also learned not to try trading more than one box at a time because it takes forever (hopefully they add the ability to wonder trade multiple Pokémon at once for Gen VIII).
