How come so many people put up lame Pokemon and request legendary Pokemon?
The number of people is high so I'm curious...

That's the tactic I use to trade between my two games since I only have one 3ds. I put up a bunnelby or a bidoof on the game I want to trade *to* asking for what I want, then I change games. Boot up GTS find my name in the list and trade away!

Alternatively, maybe they're just trying to get lucky. There are a lot of gullible people out there.

I like to imagine it's people hoping to get lucky. Though sometimes a request *might* be more reasonable, like a decently desirable shiny or whatnot.

I usually just put in Scatterbugs and ask for another Scatterbug. But yesterday I decided to put in a Fletchling and ask for a Xerneas and someone traded me their Xerneas for a Fletchling lol.

I like the creative people who post something and then ask for a ditto with levels between 1 and 10. Still impossible, but you have to think for a second.

I put up a Modest Eevee with 5 perfect IVs asking for an Articuno just to see if anyone would actually make the trade; mostly as an experiment.
I've yet to get one xD
Not changing this sig until I have at least one Shiny version of each Eeveelution.

Put up a random Safari Frogadier for a Xerneas, mainly just for dex data purposes, and lo and behold, a few hours later i got one.

Taking advantage of others stupidly on GTS is fun.
Sigs are for people with something to say.
