    Wonder Trade Weekly #17


    Wonder Trade Weekly is back again! Returned for another round, our recurring segment in which we work together throughout the week 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 Generation 7 Wonder Trade, whole boxes every week.

    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, Negative 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 week, 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.
    - To get prizes for getting someone to join through our WT, please edit your post here with a link to their profile.

    Prizes

    - For every full box you trade away, you'll earn a nice 12 PokéPoints for yourself.
    - For every member who joins Lake Valor during that week and mentions getting a tradepkm.net Pokémon leading them here, every weekly participant will get an additional 6 PokéPoints on top of those first 12.
    - If the Pokémon that brought a new member here has your OT, you'll get another-another 12 PokéPoints.
    - This means that if you send out just one box of 30 Pokémon and bring a member here, you'll get 30 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 week; so please pace yourself!

    Additional Information

    - The thread will close Sunday midnight and a new one will go up the following Monday morning (GMT).
    - 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.
    - Also, a favor to ask: due to my personal internet connection stuff, it is way easier for me if you upload your proof through the "upload a file" function using images that aren't high in resolution. I appreciate images that are less than 1 full MB in size if you can do that in still have a clear picture.

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

    This time I had a box full of Deino with the egg moves Fire Fang, Ice Fang and Thunder Fang. They also all have a Lonely nature. I'm not sure how good that is but it increases Attack growth, which should go well with the Fang moves.

    I somehow ended up with three Magikarp again. I'm not really sure how I got three Magikarp twice in a row. I also ended up with three Alolan Rattata. The Charmander I got actually has some interesting egg moves and the Froakie came in a Moon Ball, so I might be using those two for breeding later on (especially the Froakie).

    Honestly, anything that you would be happy to get in Wonder Trade is be nice, as long as it's not hacked (we don't want to seem like a whole team of rule-breakers to people opposed to hacked Pokémon).

    Most of what I do, for instance has 4 perfect IVs and one or two egg moves, or is otherwise seen as rather generous or uncommon, like Phione or maybe Feebas each with good traits to them. There might be some Pokémon that have 5 perfect IVs, or 4 and a hidden ability, or maybe no egg moves but I give it a super hard-to-acquire berry to hold; but the goal is for the recipient to say "Wow, what an amazing Pokémon! And it's nickname is tradepkm.net? Let me try that website, and get redirected to the awesome community that is Lake Valor, where I can meet the cool trainer who bred this Pokémon for me and meet more excellent friends there!"

    There are a lot of people here at LV who can help tutor you into streamlining your breeding to great Pokémon in bulk, including me and others who are even more knowledgeable. Anyone who wants some tips on breeding, seek me out in Discord or PM and we can talk!

    ~~~~~ ~~~~~~~ ~~~~~​

    I'm about to send out two boxes, as detailed below:
    - Box 26 has a 16 Snivy (12 of which are Contrary and all of which have 4+ perfect IVs), six Protean Froakie, and a several randos leftovers forgotten Pokémon that I held onto from previous WTWs: good Phione, good Mudkip with Counter, good Fennekin with Wish, good Cubone with Rock Head.
    - Box FroakieNotepad (I was experimenting with breeding to maintain pokeballs and abilities, taking notes like a scientist!) has 30 Froakie: The picture that has the left half highlighted all have Toxic Spikes and Bestow, the picture that has the top half are all Protean (some nice overlap there!), and all of these have 4+ perfect IVs.

    I'll send these out over today and tomorrow and will update with result pics. If you got a one of my Pokémon OT "Keeta", sign up and say hello! It's so fun to make connections from these!

    EDIT: over the course of three days, I've sent out two complete boxes now. Farewell, Froakie and Snivy with hidden abilities!
