Blau's Sale/Trade Beginners Guide
If you ever wondered, if a trade offer is good or not,
keep scrolling down
First things first.
There are several things you can do in the market, which is the building with the blue roof located in every town.
1. : this will bring you back to the map.
2. : this will let you buy Potions and HMs / TMs and Pokeballs for a set amount.
3. : this will let you purchase the items other players put up, the prices will vary because they are made by the players.The items will be around the same prices as the ones in the regular shop, yet you might find cheaper ones there.
4. : this will allow you to sell items for a set amount.
5. : this will allow you to put items up for an amount which you are able to decide.
6. : this is where you can purchase pokemon, other players put up, the prices will vary depending on factors below.
7. : this is where you can put your pokemon, to enable other player to make offers on them, consisting of pokemon and money.Or you can also use this to put them up for sale, the same like the menu above.
Enter the sum you want for it and click on the button to put it up for sale.
you can set or change the price by entering an amount to the field and click put on sale to well, put it up for sale
or update price to set the new amount you want.
Or remove it from sale if you decide you want to keep it.
You can also put it up for trade or remove it from trade by clicking the buttons listed above.
8. : here you are able to search and offer on pokemon, other player put up for trade.
If you find one to your liking, you can make an offer by clickning on -> or you can check the offers other players made by clicking on so you can measure how much you have to offer, by judging the worth of the other offers.
9. : here you can check on the offers other players made to your pokemon by clicking on -> and accept
By click on Accept Offer
or Decline by clicking on Decline offer
10. : here you can see the pokemon you offered on. You can check on the details, and other offers made to the pokemon you offered on aswell.
In every menu you got the following option -> that will bring you back to the menu.
Remember that you can only put a pokemon up for one thing.
For example, if you offer a pokemon to something, which you had up for sale or trade, it will get removed from there.
So make sure to get an overview on what you do with your pokemon.
And always bear in mind, that there are taxes.
from 100g - 9.999.999 g they are 5%
from 10.000.000-100m they are 10%
Additionally there are taxes if you put a pokemon up, which will be 10% , so for an example you put a pokemon up for 1000g you will pay 100g taxes, which will be returned if you take it off the sale or if it get's sold.
There are different things, that increase the value of Pokemon.
But let us get down to the "Roles" first.
There are several roles a pokemon can take :
1.Sweeper (Glass Canon) : A sweeper has high speed stats and either high sp.atk or attack.
2.Walls : A wall is focused on Defenses.Either both defenses like schuckle or Aegislash shield, or one of the defences like Bergmite.
3.Tank : A Tank is a mixture out of a Sweeper and a Wall, it will have attack power and the survivability, but not as much like the other roles.
To determine which role suits which pokemon best, click on the image of the pokemon you have in mind., to see the pokedex-entry. Or simple search for it in the pokedex which is available via the "Misc" menu in the topbar
or the pokedex looking icon-> in the bottom bar of the game screen.
In the pokedex entry, you will see their base stats, and judging from the highest stats, you will know which role to give it.
So now that we are aware of what roles there are, let's get down to natures and IVs
If you want a sweeper, high speed and fitting offensive IVs will increase it's value.
A nature which will boost either the offensive abilities or the speed will also increase it's worth
With a nature that would boost speed, but reducing the offensives, it wouldn't.
Also if the pokemon got higher levels, than the ones you can catch them on, the worth will be increased again, because they will be valuable for the ranking ect.
It's also important on how much a pokemon is liked, for example eevee will be one of the more expensive ultra rares, because it's quite famous 4
On the other hand, there is rotom, which won't come anywhere near the regular price, because there are too many of them around ect.
So i guess you know what to look for, then let's get down to the basic prices.
Common / Uncommon :
The worth of Common and Uncommon pokemon depends highly on the IVs and natures.
Fitting ones will make them a bit expensive, unfitting reducing the worth to almost nothing.
The price of Rare pokemon would be roughly around ~50k(50.000)
Depending on how much the pokemon is wanted and depending on the factor aboves.
Ultra-Rares are based around ~450k
Again increasing / decreasing with the factors listed above.
The price for legendaries is minimum 5m(5.000.000)
Because legendaries only have an encounter rate of 0.08% they have an increased value, additionally they are stronger than the ones listed before.
Increasing or decrasing as stated above.
Shinies are worth a lot, heavily depending on the extreme rare encounter rate which is 0.01% that equals a 1 to 10k chance each step.
so they are priced around ~100m
That price can increase and decrase, but it will mostly stay on 100m due to player only buy it for collecting purposes.
The value of starters is heavily influenced by the fact, that they are only available during events.
so their worth is somewhere around 20-25m
These are just basic prices, the ones you will find in the market may vary, and prices can change with the time.
This thread, is only here to ensure, you won't get ripped off, and give you a basic idea on how to estimate the value of your pokemon or those you're interested in.
