Default The Global Trading Station (GTS)

The GTS has been existant for quite a while now and I'm wondering how much use you make of it. In the 6th generation the GTS has received new very useful features: most importantly the ability to enter the Pokémon's name you are looking for (previously you could only search for Pokémon you had already seen) and a filter which filters out "special" Pokémon people are asking for (this applies mainly to event legendaries but doesn't cover things like Groudon or all the trios). Additionally you can also set it only shows people from different regions than yours and people which are only looking for Pokémon you currently own.

Do you use the GTS?
What do you use it for?
Have you gotten anything special from there?
Which other improvements could it use?

1. Yes
2. Looking up Pokémon for completing Dex.
3. A few Egg Move Pokémon.
4. A fliter where you can only offer rare/legends for legends. I hate going on there and seeing people offering a Magikarp for a Giratina.

Default AW: The Global Trading Station (GTS)

I use the GTS only for trading non-risky stuff (everything except for legendaries and shinies) to complete my dex. It is a bit tedious to use it because of the waiting after you have put something up but it's a bit more comfortable than searching for people to trade with in online communities. Why? I don't like to play while looking at the computer. Plus you'd need to make up times when to trade and be sure to keep up with them (which I can't always do perfectly). It's also a nice may to get Pokémon from so many different people

I don't trust most of the things on the GTS so I haven't even looked for anything special. The best things I got are Pokémon with hidden abilites (especially starters), egg moves and multiple 31 IVs - just things people most likely wanted to get rid of when breeding for something better.

For trading, I usually breed the same starter multiple times and try to get every non-legendary Pokémon I can't catch in my game. In OR I used Torchic for that and it worked well.

What I miss is a better filter that rules out all legendaries, not just the more special ones. I also would love a search feature that lets you find Pokémon people are looking for. So if I mass breed something, I can search for people who want it and decide if I like what they are offering. It would make searching so much faster for me. Otherwise, I see people asking for things I would need to breed for and that probably take too much time and is generally annoying. Also, let us put up more than one Pokémon at least. Last, there is a feature that was in the 5th generation games that I miss: the GTS Globe. While it's definitely not a vital part of the GTS, it was nice to "collect" locations on your Globe. The Globe being removed kinda made people's locations less relevant (except for Masuda method Pokémon).
