Borrow on the GTSForum-Index → Suggestions → Borrow on the GTS
There is always the chance that people wont return, will sell on or other stuff. to combat this, i propose the Gts lending section.
How i imagine this working is that you put said swap pokemon - for example caterpie and weedle - in the new GTS segment and if the other accepts or somebody offers and you accept, the trade goes through as usual. However, now that the pkmn have been swapped, you CAN NOT put them up for sale, rumble of wonder trade ext. much as you can not when a pokemon is part of a trade.
This would help prevent scammers from stealing stuff and there could be a potential timer, say after 6 months, that on setting up the borrow you could pick - say between 1 hour 24 hours 1 week 6 months or 1 year you get a weeks notice and they are automatically swapped back - though this could be done manually before this.
I know hat you are thinking though, Icefox, if you do not trust a person, don't lend it to them in the first place, BUT wouldn't it be nice to not even worry about this?
Anyway thanks for reading and have a happy day!!
