Default Wonder Trade

Do you like this new feature?

What are the worst and best pok?mon you've gotten through Wonder Trade?

Discuss.

Personally, I really like it. Instead of just releasing pokemon, I put them through wonder trade. I got a baby charmander today.

It's okay. Not a bad addition to the game, not a great one. I think where this feature eventually falls is going to depend completely one what most people start using it for once everyone is in to the postgame/metagame.

It would be an amazing feature if people would put up say pokemon that are X/Y exclusive or starters that didn't breed out like how they wanted, etc.

Hell if people started putting up the pokemon that aren't in X/Y at all that'd be fantastic!

For the time being though I don't expect much out of it. The best thing I've gotten out of the whole thing has been a ditto which I can use for breeding if I want. Other than that, it's all been pretty meh.

I think it's neat. I certainly prefer mass wonder trading all bred pokemon I won't use and see what I get instead of releasing them all.

Plus it's a pleasant surprise when you get something good. I got a heracross, which a Y exclusive while I own X.

I like it. It is the easiest way to get Poke Miles, and it can give good stuff. You never know if someone doesn't realize shiny Pokemon are rare, or if they give a Pokemon with Pokerus.

I like wondertrade. Its a good way to get rid of all of the leftover pokemon from breeding. I'm currently trading away 3 boxes worth and hoping to get pokemon i dont have in my dex yet.

Pretty cool actually, I like the concept of a random trade. Although some people are giving out crappy throw away pokes like a lax bidoof, others are nice, like alot of Japanese who dash out friend safari pokes such as Espurr or Snover (The best Pokemon I've gotten).
I also find it a convenient way to 1. Toss out failed breeds of my Klefkis with 3 perfect Ivs or less to people as a gift. 2. Complete my pokedex with little effort or annoyance. 3. Receive Pokemiles.
All in all, a good feature that connects Pokemon trainers.

I like wonder trade it's a great way to get dex entries and give away extra pokemon from breeding. Most of the time though, it's people giving away their crap that they're too lazy to release, I think this will change when people have access to all their pokemon in pokebank.

It's a great way to be a dick and send out Bidoofs called "LOL a Bidoof". But I'm gonna redeem myself by releasing all those flawed, bold, wish eevees as soon as I get my perfect one.

It is an interesting feature but I don't expect to use it much as people seem to just give me crap. Unless, like others have said, to unload friend's safari pokemon or unwanted bred pokemon.

Actually I take it back, wonder trade is pretty decent. I ended up getting a Haunter (that evolved into a Gengar; yesssssss!!!), two Froakies (one i traded for Fennekin) and a Chespin I also got a pokemon called "SMELLY F4RTZ" -_- People are so stupid...

It is awesome... I tricked someone when I traded a Mawile for a Caterpie. I also got a Rotom, Zorua, and Smeargle. They are so awesome

I don't think I've gotten anything amazing from Wonder Trade. I have gotten a few things that I thought were good when I first got 'em, but ended up being able to find those same Pok?mon on later routes. I was able to get a Ditto fairly early on, so that was sweet.

However, I do think Wonder Trade is a good feature. A lot of players seem to be at the point where they're training competitive teams now and trading away the leftovers after breeding, so I've been getting some more decent things. I think it'll get a lot better once the Pok?mon Bank app is released and we're finally able to transfer our other Pok?mon into XY.

I think it's a nice feature. Just saw that i have over 13,000 pokemiles just by wondertrading, wich is a pretty cool extra too.
The best Pokemon i got from a wonder trade would be the level 67 Talonflame, the starters (6th and 1th gen) and a Haunter that evolved into Gengar.
