Hmmm. I don’t quite like this trading thingy.
I thought the fun in pogo is to challenge yourself and go out to look for rare pokemons and get a sense of satisfaction..
With trading, getting a Pokémon is made simpler... chay!!!!!

Trading a rare, shiny and legendary or pokemon that the other trainer needs for his dex will require a lot of star dust. There is an image with 1 million star dust requirement.

Not everyone has >10 million like our bro here. Even with 10 million star dust, he won't be able to keep up with happy happy just trade away his pokemons.

Actually this may cause tension between friends. Like your friends are dying to get one of your many MewTwo but you only have so so amount of Star dust. Do you wanna use up your star dust to trade the Mewtwo? For example, my real life brother has zero Mewtwo and I have 16. He may be willing to give up his 1 million star dust for trade but I am not willing to lose 1 million star dust for the trade.

Won't be surprised some trainers will meet up, become friends, increase their level and then sell their pokemons too. For $, people can do all kind of things.

+4 raid balls for the best friend tier.. this pretty much benefits multi device users, they win big big!!

stranger want to trade or even sell/buy etc, the tradeoff doesnt seems good, high cost, must within 100m and it seems like the stats of pokemon can change unless u are at the best level?

well... trading a shiny or legendary or open pokedex will cost 40k SD (assuming frenship lvl is max) n iv will re roll..

like that then no point liao..



how heng u must be to re roll n tio high iv..
n each time.. cost 40k SD..
(later trade liao.. still ^&%% iv.. n of cos.. it can happen.. easily)

cannot sia... how to tahan..

none shiny n legendary.. then can slowly trade n keep rolling.. until tio 100%.. since only 100 SD.. not 40k SD...

this +4 ball.. is very good for my private lobby kaki..

becos majority of us same color.. but afew always odd color.. this frenship thing can ensure him/her get additional +4 ball.. good good..

also.. frenship lvl raid = can do more damage..

power sia... private lobby ftw..

so.. i can get 18 white ball from a raid now?

I don't like this trading and friends thing as well. I prefer playing alone than with a group. In the end, again, those who have multiple accounts won.

Seems like PoGo is encouraging multiple accounts instead of one single account. All their features benefit multi account holder.

T He may be willing to give up his 1 million star dust for trade but I am not willing to lose 1 million star dust for the trade.

.
ya.. this 1 will be abit jialat..

lets say 1 hardcore player.. of cos he has everything liao..
then a not so hardcore player.. want something from him..

but doing a trade.. means both party will need to lose SD.. (which the hardcore player might not want...)

also iv will be re roll... imagine both pple trade.. 40k SD gone for both side. A roll tio 100%.. B roll tio 0%.. the latter face sure change 1.

single acc holder.. must really go make fren or have fren play tgt lor..

while multi acc.. either do the above or ownself fren ownself lor..

I single acc.. n i will always only play 1 acc.. Everytime i see those with multi acc.. like so busy only.. for what sia..

its like.. taking care of 1 kid.. is easier right.. than taking care of 3 or 4 kids or more.. buay tahan lei.. at least for me.

I think trading at its current incarnation will probably just be reduced to trading for the sake of trading, to get the Golden Trading badge at 1000 trades (just like the 1000 research tasks gold badge).

In terms of usefulness probably not that much, since IVs are rerolled.

Good idea for my 2 accounts to get more high IV pokemons
Especially worth it for those weather boosted lvl 35 meta relevant pokemons with low iv.
It's like paying 100SD to re-roll the IV.
I have a feeling this is too good liao, likely will get nerfed by Niantic or the SD requirement will be raised eventually.
