Pokemon Fans Will Improve The Trashcan That Is Wonder Trade For Christmas

They say you never know what you’re going to get when you put up a monster for a blind trade within Wonder Trade, but let’s be real, nine times out of ten, you’ll be sent low-level garbage. For the holiday season, benevolent Pokemon fans want to make sure Wonder Trade ups its game, though.

All over the internet, people are starting to make plans to flood Wonder Trade with higher-quality Pokemon for December:

In response, many players are thinking about ways in which future Wonder Traded monsters can embody the holiday spirit. It’s not enough to trade good creatures for an event like this, there’s also a lot of room to be creative. In previous years, players have circulated Deliberd during the holidays. Not only does Deliberd come packed with a move called “Present,” within the lore, it is said that Santa Claus himself owns the ice/flying Pokemon. If you Wonder Trade on Christmas, be prepared to see a whole lotta this, and likely holding some good items to boot:

Other trainers are opting to give their creatures special themed names. “All my casual arse could come up with is adamant Crabominables named ‘Santa Claws,’ one Redditor wrote. Others are advising players to give out Pokemon with good movesets, strong stats, starters, creatures that have abnormal gender ratios, among other things.

For my part, I’m likely going to be emptying most of my storage box, with the exception of common monsters such as Yungoos, Rattata, and the like.

It’s easy to participate, and you have the entire month to start catching or breeding presents to give out on Wonder Trade — so let’s all pitch in however we can. Wonder Trade doesn’t have to be terrible!


  • Man I have been wonder trading wrong this whole time. I have like a box full of Haunters Machokes and Boldores that I send out to the abyss maybe I should start saving them for Chrissy time.

    • I usually do the same. Wonder trading Pokémon that only evolve after trading like Haunters and Machokes (obviously without everstones) struck me as a pretty easy way to put wonder trade to good use when I first tried it. I don’t ever trade expecting to get something good in return (maybe that’s the true spirit of wonder trade?), so I’m usually pleasantly surprised when I do.

  • I got 30+ each of Litten, Rowlet, and Popplio bred up ready to go out, along with boxes of Mimikyu, Pichu, Growlithe, Ditto, ect. Also been collecting and breeding the few version specific ‘mons as well (Drampa and Turtonator mainly), and a butt load of Lycanrocs (Both versions)

    Wonder Trade is already full of crap. I’ll often sit here doing WT for hours, fishing out all the damn Zubats and Yungoos out of the system – Just wish the whole process was faster
