List of in-game trades

From The Pokemon Insurgence Wiki

Continuing the trend featured in the core series Pokémon games, Pokémon Insurgence features its very own in-game trades. Though the trading system itself is mostly the same, there are a few noteworthy exceptions which set the in-game trades in Pokémon Insurgence apart from those found in the core series games:

  • Non-playable characters (NPCs) in Pokémon Insurgence may provide the player with multiple trading requests, where the player only needs to fulfill one requirement in order to complete the trade.
  • Pokémon traded to the player include the trading NPC's trainer class in addition to their name in the Pokémon's OT field.
  • The ID of the trading NPC is not static, it is randomized every time a trade is made.
  • Pokémon traded to the player have completely randomized IVs; this differs from the Generation VI core series games, where Pokémon either had set IVs or a number of set perfect IVs.
  • The nature of the Pokémon received is random.
  • The gender of the Pokémon received is random, excluding cases where the Pokémon species has no gender or is gender-specific.
  • In the event that the Pokémon received has a primary and a secondary ability, the ability will be randomized between the two; it is currently not possible to receive a Pokémon which already has its Hidden Ability.
  • Pre-Generation V level mechanics are used, where the level of the Pokémon received will always be equal to the level of the Pokémon that is traded away.
    • The one exception to this rule is the Cyndaquil traded in Sonata City, which is received at level 5 regardless of what level Druddigon is traded.

Otherwise, trading mechanics remain the same.

  • In Roggan Town the player is able to trade for a Larvesta whose OT is Camper Sally. This is likely a typographical error, as the female counterpart of the Camper trainer class is referred to as a Picnicker both in the cores series games and in Pokémon Insurgence.
  • The nickname of the Beldum traded in Kepler City, Deep Blue, is a reference to a chess computer created by IBM that was able to beat reigning champion Garry Kasparov in a 6-game chess match.
  • The nickname of the Darumaka traded in Gaea Town, Damage, is a reference to TyranitarTube's run-through of Pokémon ORAS extreme randomizer.
