How to avoid the "traded to another trainer" problem on the GTS?

2 votes

I am doing the "Coil Loop" on the GTS. (If you don't know, it's everyone trading Magnemites in order to get better stuff on Join Avenue.)

But when I go to "Seek Pokemon", every time I find one to trade it says "unfortunately, it was traded to another trainer". And it's not just that it got traded away in those few seconds, if you search again the same trainer with the same Pokemon shows up!

Anyone have any tips to avoid this? I have tried limiting the search to a country but no luck yet. I tried Japan, USA, UK, Italy and France. Keep getting the same message!

Now This has happened to me a few times but I don't know why either, but when I left the GTS and went back again, they had left.
So try leaving the GTS and going back in and searching again.
If it doesn't work then there might be a lag and could take a while to go away.
Other than that I don't really know.
Hope I helped!

There was a shiny ursaring I could trade my Abomasnow for. It has been there for at least 2 months,and I`ve tried more than once. It always says that.
That is probably caused by the person not playing pokemon and receiving the abomasnow trade.
