Most likely they cloned them using Power Saves or PKHeX, that's how people do it happy.gif However, GTS is totally unfair with the trades, you can see people asking for a Tapu for example and offering a simple (let's say) Spinarak with no special attributes or whatsoever.

I don't have a problem with cloning, I do it myself when I want to evolve a shiny I want to keep.

Well dang. I didn't even know something like that was possible. Which must mean that it is going to be impossible for me to acquire the Heatran I missed, huh? My duplicates are all from the extra code cards my GameStop gives to me. I just didn't realize that I couldn't trade the extras. *sad sigh* 3 regular Zygardes, 3 shiny Zygardes, and I can't get my stupid Heatran. Bugger. pissed.gif Thanks for the 4-1-1, Mikaku Onchi. It wasn't what I was hoping to hear, but I appreciate knowing.

hm are you able to go to comic- or anime conventions ?
If you've got any in your area then that might be cheaper depending on which merchants they decide to host.
Some merchants also have a "pickup at convention" option on their site.

Hey, mine is a PAL (European) one but I don't mind to give it to you and I mean the original grin.gif PM me your friend code if you're interested ok? I don't have much need for it anyway. Now that you mentioned, I think you can't trade the shiny zygarde via GTS, at least someone told me that. I think it's because of the ribbon but I might be wrong idk. Anyway, I'm usually online at evening/night Lisbon/London time.

Mikaku Ochi, I'm more than happy to trade, in game also, for a Heatran if you are willing. I can send a PM with my FC once my daughters help me in figuring out how to find that. LOL Since it is getting late (don't know what hour it is by you; here it's actually early evening) we can set something up for tomorrow perhaps? Let me get my FC and then I'll send you the pm. love.gif This would be super sweet of you!


*EDIT*
In GPX related news... I've arrived at that wonderful task once again. Here is hoping that there will be a multiplier in the coming days (two or three would be ideal LOL) to help. If not, I'm hoping that I can make serious headway before the end of the month or, at the very least, before the start of the next SWSH. Here's hoping, right?

The closest convention coming up that's even remotely near me is somewhere in Southern California, so about 6 hours away without traffic. Don't have a licence because I need other members of my family to physically be there when I get it for legal reasons and this year's been pretty hectic what with people going in and out of hospitals. It would take a while to walk.

Haven't seen anyone utilizing that option yet, didn't even know that sort of thing existed until today. Still, no one has it.

*happy dancin'*

I just wanted to give a great big thank you shout out to Mikaku Onchi.

Not only do I have my missed Heatran now... but a small handful of shiny in-game Pokemon as well. You were so super wonderful!! I wish I had better held items to give out as a thank you. I know you said it was, basically, no sweat for you to offer those shinies, but seeing as how I have over 100 hours playing Sun, and even a character in the game told me my chances of finding a shiny were 1 in, like, one million.... having these new 4 is AWESOME!!! And the Cleffa to boot! I haven't even run across a Cleffa yet so... sweetness!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You've made me a very happy Pokemon gamer this morning. love.gif

GPX related... I'm at that wonderful task where battling would be great... if one only could. I'm working my way towards having strong Pokemon to bring with me and attempt it... but that attempt is still a ways off. So my 2 - 4 week struggle begins... today.

Aww, there's no problem at all tongue.gif I'm glad we could find a good time to trade, sometimes it's difficult because of time zones. Please take good care of the little ones and sorry for not nicknaming them, I never know what names I should give to my pokémon and end up with something stupid or some portuguese meme names lol. That's why I rarely name my shinies.
If you (or anyone) need something pokemon related that I can help, shoot me a PM, anytime.
*HUGS*

I occasionally nickname my Pokemon in game. I tried to nickname them for the Ultra Sun game I've been playing, but my limited foreign language knowledge and wanting to name them something cool that relates to their "end evolution" proved to be quite tiresome and difficult. LOL

That's got me thinking... wondering... though. Anybody out here doll out nicknames to their in-game Pokemon as a standard practice? If so, what "formulas" do you use? Do you stick with your native tongue or find others more appealing? Or do you just use names from either real life, movies, or books?

Since the game takes place in the Alola region, I tried to use Hawaiian names. Some of the names were stretches [to be sure], but I tried to either find the Hawaiian name that best fit their final evolution or what their natures were. After a while, it just got to be a burden to try [not to mention I was doubting Wiki's online translations, LOL]. So when I found that the daycare had Popplio in the mix, and I wound up with 3 offspring recently, I named each boy in secession, Pops, Leo, and then Brion. I wonder traded the first two and I'm keeping Brion at his first evolution. But dang. Brion is getting strong. He might be a great wonder trade for someone some day. LOL

I generally just give my Pokemon human names, no matter the origin. In that respect, I am boring.

I don't normally name any of my personal pokemon. I have given Ditto nicknames when I'm planning to WonderTrade/GTS them however. I will name them either: Clone, Mimeograph, Mimic, or Xerox.

And the shinies that I catch, I attempt to get them in Premier Balls if possible.

It can be tiresome, but I tend to nickname every single pokemon I catch (excluding legendaries and like). I don't have a specific theme in mind, so it can be pretty random. Human names, "meaningful" names, foreign language names and etc. Whatever clicks at the moment.

Same goes for shinies on this site, albeit, i tend to give nicknames only if i got an idea.

6 hours that would be like going from the north east side of my country all the way to france or spain by thalys train or so
yikes

I don't have a car either

I also tend to nickname most of my Pokemon: if it's a new pokemon I haven't caught yet, then I tend to nickname it. If I'm breeding a whole bunch of stuff or breeding for a shiny or competitive mon, however, then I don't nickname extras. I tend to nickname based whatever is happening to me in that exact moment. So I have some weird names like Algebra the Ho-oh, Splat2n the Mamoswine, or Starboy the Clefable.

Also I got a PM that it's my 9 year anniversary. Woooooooooo! That's honestly ridiculous.

Well, at least the train is probably more entertaining than walking? In a way. But yes, not too fun in any case. I've got a car, but it's currently not running and I'm not quite sure what's wrong with it.
