PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Suggestion for a Trading Center?

3 votes

First I would like to start off by saying that my favorite parts of the Pokemon games are collecting and trading with fellow trainers. I am not a fan of battling, partly because I am not that great at it. With this being said I would like to suggest a Trading Center for this amazing website.

There is already a battle subway, so why not add a trading center for those of us who prefer trading/collecting over battling? Not only will the Trading Center be an organized place for trainers to trade but it will also attract more people to the Pokemon-db, building up an even stronger community.

One problem with only being able to trade through the public chat is that not everyone can be on at the same time to see who is looking for a trade. This way a trainer will be able to post if he/she is looking for a specific Pokemon and will be easily seen by other trainers looking to trade. Another positive is that the public chat wont be interrupted by trainers constantly asking for trades. It can all be done within the Trading Center section!


Example

Thread Setup (Looking for or Offering)

L/O: Looking
Pokemon: Lugia
Level: 70
English/Japanese: English


*English/Japanese would be a way to tell if someone is Looking for or Offering a Pokemon who's name is in English or Japanese.


Just an idea to help add a new feature into this great site. I'd love to hear everyone's feedback.

Erick, anyone can answer meta questions. Just saying :3
Yeah but this question was for PM, and he wrote a comment, not an answer.
People besides pm can answer and you can't stop them dude.
I think this is a really nice idea, but about how this would work? That's something l'd like to know, and it would probably be very similar to the Chatroom.

I think as long as a lot of people actually want this (like the Battle Subway), Pokemaster might consider this.
Wow, when I ask this question, it gets shot down every time. But now that some other guy asks...

Wow. -_-

Definitely got my Upvote though, I've tried bringing this up twice.
Are people just hatin' on Gigs or wut?

Yeah it's something I've considered. If I ever do the forum idea, I would definitely add this.
