Gem Collector's FriendForum-Index → Suggestions → Gem Collector's Friend
The idea is actually adding the opposite feature of buying pokémon from the gem collector. Meaning that you could sell//trade//give away pokémon you own for items or another pokémon maybe.
Perhaps the gem collector could ask for a specific pokemon. For example he could say something like "Hey there, I have a friend from the Kanto region who wants some Growlithes? If you have any spare I would happily give you some gems or items in exchange."
It's like the guy in Pokémon games who says you to bring him a pokemon with a specific something.
For an example, on PH it can be a specific held item, stats, mega-able or mega etc.
If you bring a pokemon that meets the requirements, you get an item, gems (half the price you can buy that pokémon) or another pokémon.
The pokemon he wants could change every few days, dragon pokemon could still give a dragon gem or 2, but they would only come up rarely.
There should also be a limit of pokémon you can sell in one day, depending on their rarity. For an example, max. 6-10 growlithes per day.
I like the idea of introducing someone like this, but would there be a limit to how many you can submit in a day?
I feel as though this would really mess with the gem stock & decrease their value, unless a limit was put in.
I think it'd be pretty bad for the economy, if you could hand in like.. 100+ growliths, just because you happened to be hoarding them & he asked for a growlith on that day. like.. with a click of a button, you just got 100 fire gems, y'know?
for the moment, no support, but I do like the idea, as long as there is a limit in place :)
Yeah, maybe you're right. Anyways, adding this to the original post ;)
So, if I'm shiny hunting Greninja, and I only trade 2 of them, I get 100 water gems.
EDIT:1. Maybe selling of Greninja, Xerneas, Yevtal, and the other Kalos starters would not be allowed?
2. Maybe we would get lesser gems then we took to buy them? Like 10-25 gems for a Greninja?
Yes, half the original price while selling pokémon. I think I forgot to add it, but we mentioned it while discussing...
This goes against the "profitable way of getting rid of an unwanted Pokemon" aspect, but I'd be all for a this if the Gem Collector only wanted to see or borrow my Pokemon for a short time. (Heck, maybe he borrows Pokemon for his breeder friend so he has Pokemon to sell for gems)
It would be kinda cool that in Gem collector if there was a way to trade an extra pokemon that you have for gems. just choose a pokemon that you don't need and trade it for gems. kinda like how you trade gems for pokemon eggs in the Gem collector.
For example: i'm going to do a Shiny Mega Sableye hunt here when i get enough gems. i have some extra ghost type pokemon. it'd be cool if i could exchange them for gems say i'd get maybe 10 gems from the pokemon.
dragon gems should be limited just because it would make it easier for people to get dragon gems and the price would go down.
like say you wanted to trade a Gible for ground and dragon gems. You'd get 10 ground gems and 2 dragon or so on.
i think it'd be a neat add to the game.
Honestly, I'm the kind of person that just doesn't care for selling a horde of pokemon I dont need anymore, especially from a hunt. Not everyone will take the time to do it. xD So I see this as a very useful option.
Maybe it's a berry/ a couple berries or something else along those lines that gets used up quicker and is moderately readily available anyway
(Slots/just buying them/rumble)
Or low amounts of PD like the sell item option in games like Flight Rising and Gaia where it won't be the Market Price but you can FOR SURE get rid of it without it just being "well you released it I guess?"
ps sorry for any excessive use of ASCII smileys/ellipses above :)
Maybe, instead of 4 corners, we could change it up to make it that 2 vs. 2 layout you get when you do double battles?
Something like that, because I feel like having a four corner thing would be a bit odd. (I've never played in the battle royal, I don't know what it looks like). But this would still require four people, and each person could still have 3 Pokemon, just maybe 2 people could be on the same team? And then after that the winners of the first round go on to face each other, like in a tournament, in a 1 on 1 battle.
