Welcome to the trading thread for Los Angeles.

If you are located within or close to this city, you can utilize this thread to coordinate trading with other users. Please see below for more information about how to trade.

During Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto, trading distance is raised from 100m to 40km, so you will not need to meet physically.

SAFETY NOTE: If meeting, please follow COVID-19 guidelines in your area. Remain socially distanced, and stay safe! We recommend meeting at a populated, public place for your safety.

Trading Information: 


As long as you've been friends with someone for a day, and have exchanged one gift, you can trade Pokemon with them. Every trade you do will cost you Stardust, although the exact cost depends on a number of factors - but more on that in a minute. 

When you know what you want to trade and who you want to trade with, make sure you're physically next to each other (within 100m). Then head to the Friends tab within Pokemon Go, and select the player you want to trade with. Hit the trade button in the right-hand corner, and get your friend to do the same. When you've connected, pull up the Pokemon you want to trade and you'll be informed of the trade cost in Stardust, but also the CP range the Pokemon will hit when it is traded. When the trade is over, the Pokemon's CP level will sit somewhere within this range. The range is affected by your Trainer Level, the level of the receiving trainer and also your friendship level. 

You also get candies for every trade, which is a great added bonus. How many you'll receive depends on where the Pokemon was caught too. The further away you are from its source, the more candies you'll receive. According to Reddit, you get one candy for distances below 30km, two candies from between 30 - 100km, and three candies for anything above 100km. 

Not all Pokemon are regarded the same in Pokemon Go trading though, as there are two types of trades you can do with a friend: Standard Pokemon Go trades, and Special Pokemon Go trades. 

Standard trades include regional Pokemon, different forms of Pokemon already in your Pokedex (such as Unowns, Alolan or Castform varients), and any Pokemon you don't have in your Pokedex that aren't Legendaries or shinies. 

Special Trades are reserved for Legendary Pokemon like Articuno or Zapdos, and Shiny Pokemon. You can't trade Mythical Pokemon - aka Mewtwo and Mew - at all in Pokemon Go. They have to be earned I'm afraid. 

The actual cost of Pokemon Go trading is quite a complex thing. Every trade will cost you Stardust, and that price will depend on a number of factors: whether you've already caught the Pokemon yourself, your friendship level with the player you're about to trade with, and the Pokemon you're actually trading - Standard vs Special trades. 

It seems like the Stardust Pokemon Go trading cost is about as follows (thanks to AshmedaiHel from Reddit  for the info):

Standard Trades
Good Friend: 100
Great Friend: 80
Ultra Friend: 8
Best Friend: 4

Shiny or Legendary (caught)
Good Friend: 20,000
Great Friend: 16,000
Ultra Friend: 1,600
Best Friend: 800

Shiny or Legendary (uncaught)
Good Friend: 1,000,000
Great Friend: 800,000
Ultra Friend: 80,000
Best Friend: 40,000

Basically, you need to plan ahead if you want to trade Legendaries you don't already own to increase your friendship level with the trainer you want to trade with.

Looking to trade my shiny Raikou for shiny Suicune. I'm not having any luck finding one so i would appreciate anyone trading off any extra shiny Suicunes for my shiny Raikou. The IV's on my Raikou aren't great and I'm not expecting any good IV's as well. 

I will also have Red version for the Kanto event so if you're looking to trade hmu.

DM me on discord at Zren#2240 or here. (I'll respond faster on discord) Thank you!
