Halloween Wonder Trade Event!

  1. Ruko

    Ruko Bearded Trout Warrior

    [So, this is a community project that took off on the forums a few days ago to Wonder Trade Halloween-themed Pokémon - it's a great idea, so I'll let Ruko explain more... -Teapot]

    So, @DoggyEars had an idea to catch up as many Pumpkaboo as she can, give them rare candy and then Wonder-Trade them on Halloween. I've decided to follow suit and do the same thing and thought I'd post here to see if anyone else would like to join us, or perhaps just try to get a hold of one on halloween :)

    At the moment we're thinking about nicknaming them, but don't have any particularly good ideas - if you can come up with any, feel free to post suggestions or even take from the suggestion pool to nickname your own.

    Name suggestions I've liked:
    Jack
    Candy
    Boo
    Ichabod
    Grim
    Salem
    Sweets

    THREAD HIGHLIGHTS

    Misdreavus, Woobat and Noibat all sound great, for general rarity - but I don't think anyone will appreciate receiving a Zubat regardless of intent

    I'm not going to restrict folks who want to join in - attach whatever you'd like, or even nothing!

    Because of the difficulty of coordination, and exclusion of folks in certain timezones, no. I've also run the wonder trades dry before, running out of currently active people to wonder trade with.

    I'm going to have my message set to "Pokecharms.com"
    Anyone inclined enough to check it out will know why and potentially join us in our ghost flood.

      Boo is always a cute nickname ;D though kinda simple. Also Pepo, from the specie name of pumpkin~

      Also totally joining in on this. It seems fun and I'm willing to see if I somehow, randomly, get anyone's Pumpkaboo here XD Are there other potential 'mons to wonder trade? Like, I dunno, bats or something. Or witches. Misdreavus seems like a good witch/ghost thing :'D *shot*

      Ooo~
      I have some spare time to get into the halloween mood, so I'll join in on the fun.
      I just thought on some names. There will be more.
      - Cutie pie~
      - Dracula
      - Death
      But, instead of a rare candy, can I adjust the rules to put berries?

      Oh, by no means is it a rule - attach whatever you'd like to them, or even nothing at all. The idea is just to give a little something extra.

      This sounds fun. I'd like to join in on this. Does anyone think Banette and Shuppet would be good to add in on this, because I've got a box full of Shuppet.

      I'll probably wonder trade some ghosty things, but I won't have a lot, and they won't have items. Sorry guys!

      @UndeadRaptor13 Shuppet are cute enough for me to say yes ;D

      Also this came up in chat, but if you're breeding, it'll be a nice touch to add in egg moves you think would be helpful to your 'mons. I'm currently breeding a bunch of Stored Power Woobat, as an example. Hidden Abilities, if you can get them, are also nice~

      I will gladly join you guys, I was thinking of breeding some Duskulls soon, might as well set some up for this.

      I might breed some Sabeleyes just because its about time for OR AS and it has a mega 8)

      Are we going to be timing this at a specific time on Friday?

      That wouldn't be terribly easy to coordinate, and on top of that I've run out of people to wonder trade with before when dumping multiple boxes of babies in at once.. so I think it'll just be a whenever you feel like it unless someone proposes a good reason to do it together.

      For the record, I'll be Wonder Trading at the start of every hour from 1-4 PM CST, a box each hour (so 4 boxes of babbies). HA Swoobat for everyone! :'D

      I won't be home until 10pm eastern most likely but I will send out my duskulls around then unless I can get a connection to wifi before then. Oh and don't forget to list your OTs so people know when they got another charmsian pokemon :D

      This actually sounds like a lot of fun :) . I think I'll be able to Wonder Trade in the morning, though I'll have to check which pokémon I can be able to breed &/or trade. Also, I think Ghoulie could be another good Pumpkaboo nickname

      Sounds cool! Misdreavus was so hard for me to find T^T
      (I traded my xerneas for it D: )

      If you see any Pumpkaboos names Spookables... that's my insignia right there. :)
    17. Shiny Lyni
      Shiny Lyni
      I named all my Swoobat "Cooties" and my Joltik/Spinarak "Itsy-Bitsy". If you end up getting one of those, that's mine ;D

      If you see a Shuppet or MisDrevus with the OT name Skler then that's from me.

      Totally in on this :3

      Is there a specific time? Also, I think we should all have our message be the same. #Pumpkaboo maybe?
    24. Ruko

      I was going to set my message to "pokecharms.com"
      It'd be more likely to bring people on board to see the homepage, potentially fueling more wonder ghost explosion.

      Also, no there isn't a specific time for reasons outlined above :)

      I like the idea :p and since I wont be Trick-o-treating or doing something in specific in Halloween...;_; I might get pumpkaboo breeding and ghastly breeding for that time.

      I'm in going to start catching/breeding noibats and glameows (black cat) and houndooms (grim reaper) but one thing. What is the message thing you speak of?

      If anything the mightyena should be named Jacob.

      And whenever you connect online you can select a special message that you say to everyone automatically - you know how everyone floating by says a particular phrase of some sort?

      This an awesome idea! :D

      This sounds cool! I might breed some Zoruas, name them 'Howl' (werewolf themed) and I'll try and make sure that they have 4-5 perfect ivs. So if you get a a Zorua named Howl from WT and the OT is Virizion, That'll be from me :D

      Do you guys have enough Rare Candies? I have an infinite amount of them if anyone needs some.

      I still have to find my Y version though...

      That would be some painstaking trading right there @.@
      Nobody has to attach anything - it's just what those of us who are capable are doing.
