Wonder Trade (Japanese: ミラクル交換 Miracle Exchange) is a feature introduced in Pokémon X and Y that allows players to randomly trade with another player using the feature.

Wonder Trade is accessed from the first menu of the Player Search System. Players send out their own Pokémon, the system searches for a Wonder Trade partner, then trades the Pokémon. Wonder Trading will give the player Poké Miles depending on how far the other player Wonder Trading with them is from their location; the farther the other player, the more Poké Miles will be earned. Anyone traded with will be added to the Acquaintances section of the PSS.

Like regular trading, Wonder Trading can trigger trade evolutions.

Untradeable Pokémon

Eggs, Mega Stones, Cosplay Pikachu, colored orbs, and Pokémon with special Ribbons cannot be traded. Pokémon which have their Hidden Ability, but cannot legitimately have it, cannot be Wonder Traded. Attempting a Wonder Trade while either of these conditions are true will result in a 'partner not found' message. In case of Cosplay Pikachu or a Pokémon with a special Ribbon, a message: "It's a special Pokémon. You cannot trade it!" will show.

Pokémon with moves or items introduced in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire cannot be Wonder Traded to a player in Pokémon X and Y. A player trading a Pokémon with items or moves from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will never be matched with a player in Pokémon X and Y. Pokémon that exist in Pokémon X and Y and only have moves and items that exist in those games can be Wonder Traded from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire to Pokémon X and Y.
