Anyone ever trade memory cards?

Archived from groups: alt.games.nintendo.pokemon (More info?)

I know you'd have to really trust someone to do this, but I was
wondering if anyone has ever traded memory cards in order to get
pokemon, now that we have Box at our disposal. I'm thinking you can
either put them on your cart for the entry, then put them back and send
the card back, or that person can breed an egg for you and you take the
egg off the card and send the card back. That'd be a great thing to do
if we trusted each other. It'd be a nice way to get the few pokemon on
the other colored cart, for example, plus the ones you have to choose
between, like the Hitmons.

    Never have, no, but it'd certainly work.

    Box makes bulk-swapping much easier, like in the case of trading between,
    say, LeafGreen and Sapphire, which both have over a hundred Pokémon that the
    other version doesn't. For anything lesser, surely it's much easier (and
    safer) to use a link cable or wireless adaptor.

    Actually, you don't need to trade AT ALL for all the Hitmons in FL - once
    you've unlocked the National Dex, keep breeding the Hitmon you chose with
    Ditto until you have enough Tyrogues to ensure you can get the other two.

    That's true. Ok, the fossils then! :)

    And as far as trading cards, I was thinking of people who aren't near
    each other, or people who don't know others who play the game to
    immediately trade with.

    We're all in Ditto-nial. We can't believe he's actually back. It is truly
    THE SECOND COMING OF DITTO. KNEEL BEFORE YOUR METAMORPHOSIZING GOD, FOO.

    Evolving Tyrouge (a play on Mike Tyson? Nah...) has to do with stats,
    correct? If Defense is higher than Attack, or what have you...

    Yes. If one or the other is favoured, you get 'Chan or 'Lee
    respectively[1]. If they're equal, you get Hitmontop. You can manipulate
    this to some degree with the careful use of drugs. Just like the potions in
    Alice In Wonderland.

    Well, in GSC, you could give a Tyrogue vitamins at lvl 19 to make sure that
    it evolved into the correct one. I'm *ass*u*ming you can do the same thing
    now, but I haven't actually tried it yet.

    This is why I said, two posts later, "You can manipulate this to some degree
    with the careful use of drugs."
