Trade Rules:


  • 1. Use the appropriate subforum when trading and only use Trade Chat when looking for trades in-game.
  • 2. Each player may only have one active post in each sub-forum.
  • 3. Scamming, misleading or deceiving other players is prohibited and will be aggressively sanctioned.
  • 4. When a deal has been agreed upon, by both parties, you can not go back on it. A deal is done once both price and location of the trade are agreed upon., or an insta price is met
  • 5. Trades outside of PRO are prohibited and not to be discussed.
  • 6. Users can sell their Pokemon at whatever price they'd like, within reason. Do not harass users over their sales.
  • 7. Do not comment off-topic on other people's posts and do not comment on Trade Chat.
  • 8. In Trade Chat, do not spam unnecessary letters, numbers, symbols to get attention. Any form of spam in the channel will result in a mute.
  • 9. When advertising a sale, make it clear for what you are selling/ buying.
  • 10. You are allowed to bump your trade post once every 24 hours and, in-game, you can repost your trade once per minute. Any faster may result in a mute.
    • NOTE: Your forum trade posts will be automatically locked if they haven't been posted to for 14 days.
  • 11. Fake Offering/Selling/Bidding with no intention to buy/sell is prohibited.
  • 12. In auctions, the auctioneer should announce the rules of the auction and the item(s)/pokemon(s) being auctioned, call and acknowledging bids made, and announce the winner, said rules should be respected. (i.e. If you withdraw your auction due to 'low offers' without stating that beforehand in said auction's rules, you will be punished.)
  • 13. Regarding insta/fixed prices for Pokémon/Items on the trade forums, the user who bids the insta first will be the winner. Any bids made after this point for the same mon will be voided, and the seller must respect the sale to the first player who met the insta price.

  • Fake Selling - Agreeing to sell a Pokemon but going back on the deal.
  • Fake Buying - Agreeing to buy a Pokemon but going back on the deal.

Contacting a Moderator:


  • If you have completed the objective of your thread, or want a topic to be closed. Please edit the topic title to include something along the lines of "Can be closed," "Sold," "Please lock," etc. This will make it easier for Moderators to identify topics that can be locked.

  • If your topic was locked, and you want it re-opened, you can contact a Moderator via PM with a request to unlock the specified topic.

  • Please read the Important Information thread and know the risks of certain trades. If you end up needing to make a report, don't do it by spamming the user's thread or by writing it in Trade Chat. Instead, be patient and make a report in the Report Center. A Moderator will be able to look into it as soon as they're available.
