An in-game trade or NPC trade is a trade made with NPCs in the core series and spin-off Pokémon games. The process uses the same trading sequence as player trades and is usually done for Pokémon that are difficult or impossible to obtain through other means, or for Pokémon unavailable at that point of the game. In later games, the traded Pokémon often has special moves, like Egg Moves. Starting in Generation III, the player cannot initiate a trade with another game unless they have at least two Pokémon in their party, but this restriction does not apply to in-game trades.

Prior to Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the NPC Trainer will always specify a Pokémon they want to trade for. The Pokémon the player receives in the trade will have a fixed Original Trainer and nickname; in later games the Trainer ID number, held item, Nature, IVs, and/or level can be fixed as well.

Like Pokémon traded externally, the traded Pokémon will be treated as an outsider, and gain a boosted amount of experience points in battle. Prior to Generation V, every Pokémon has the same level as the Pokémon it was traded for, except in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

List of in-game trades

The following lists of in-game trade Pokémon only include their nicknames and Original Trainer names in English and Japanese. For these names in other languages, see List of in-game trades in other languages.

Generation I

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Check that the Gen II held items of trade evolutions and Japanese Blue's Krabby are correct.

All Trainer ID numbers and IVs are random in the Generation I games. The Original Trainer always uses the hardcoded text string 0x5D, which is displayed as "TRAINER" (Japanese: トレーナー Trainer) in the game's language. In Western language versions of the handheld games and Pokémon Stadium, this string is displayed in ALLCAPS ("TRAINER" in English), whereas in Pokémon Stadium 2 it is displayed in title case ("Trainer" in English). When transferred using Poké Transporter, this string is permanently converted to title case in the language of the game it was transferred from, being changed to use a literal string instead of a language-sensitive control character.

The held item column refers to the item the Pokémon will be holding if it is traded to a Generation II game. With the exception of Pokémon that evolve during that trade and Krabby in Japanese Blue, they have the same item a wild Pokémon of the same species would have if it were traded to a Generation II game; Pokémon that evolve during the trade have the item their evolved form would have, while Krabby has TM13 (Snore) instead of TM33 (Ice Punch). Because the Trainer ID numbers and IVs are random, these Pokémon can be shiny when transferred to a Generation II or Generation VII game.

Unused trades

This (full) data is stored in Mobile System GB related code for Japanese Pokémon Crystal. It also appears earlier in the ROM, but with the Original Trainer data not included. Kabīn is possibly a reference to the Game Freak Kōji Nishino and Snorlax (Japanese: カビゴン) in-jokes, and the early 'Kabīn battle' concept art. The code remains in English Crystal; however, the Japanese names were not translated, resulting in garbage text, which causes problems as the game expects the English name length.

Generation IV

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum

In the English language version of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Kazza, Charap, and Gaspar are functionally Japanese in origin; in Pokémon Platinum and all other language versions of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, these Pokémon have the same language of origin as the game they were obtained in. While language of origin is normally not visible in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, being a different language of origin does still have functional effects, such as boosting their experience gained by 1.7× (instead of 1.5×) and being applicable for the Masuda method. If traded to Pokémon Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver, these Pokémon can register Japanese Pokédex entries; in later generations, language of origin is explicitly displayed on the status screen.

Generation V

Unique to this generation, some of the Pokémon that are traded to the NPC can be battled again by that NPC. These are marked with a † icon. The gender and Ability traded is kept in the new battle, and in Black and White, the traded Pokémon evolves, but the moves may change, even if HMs were taught to the Pokémon when traded. The new level is based on the level of the Pokémon traded to the NPC: 65 if it was below 65, 5 more than the initial level if it was at least 65 but below 96, and 100 if it was at least level 96.

Except for trades with Yancy and Curtis, all traded Pokémon are guaranteed to have 1 perfect IV and all others set to 20.

Trivia

  • Prior to Generation V, since the Pokémon received in an in-game trade is the same level as the Pokémon traded for it, it is sometimes possible to receive a Pokémon at a lower level than normally possible.
  • In Pokémon Red and Green and Pokémon Red and Blue, four Pokémon are exclusive to in-game trades: Lickitung, Jynx, Farfetch'd, and Mr. Mime.
    • In Japanese Pokémon Blue, Lickitung and Jynx were made available in the wild. In Pokémon Yellow, Lickitung and Farfetch'd were made available in the wild as well. Therefore, Mr. Mime (in all languages) and Jynx (in languages other than Japanese) remained unavailable in the wild until Generation II.
    • Due to being exclusive to in-game trades, until the release of later games in which they could be obtained in the wild, they could only have their traded nicknames and the Original Trainer of "TRAINER".
  • In Pokémon Red and Blue, the Scientist at the Pokémon Lab on Cinnabar Island who trades Electrode for Raichu claims that Raichu evolved, which is not possible. This is due to a context-ignorant translation of the Japanese Pokémon Blue text, in which the player trades Kadabra for Graveler, both of which evolve by trade
    • Similarly, the old man who trades the player Jynx for Poliwhirl in Cerulean City claims that Poliwhirl "went and evolved". Poliwhirl does not evolve by trade in the Generation I games but rather through the use of a Water Stone. In the context of the Japanese Pokémon Blue, the old man trades away Haunter for Machoke, both of which evolve by trade.
  • In Pokémon Crystal, once the player trades a Haunter for Chris's Xatu "Paul" in Pewter City, Chris comments after the trade "Uh? What happened?", and then in later interactions "Trading is so odd... I still have a lot to learn about it." Although it is not explicitly said, Chris's surprise may suggest that Haunter evolved into Gengar. However, this dialogue does not change even if the player trades this Haunter holding an Everstone, which would normally prevent this evolution.
    • In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the player can also trade a Haunter for Mondo's Xatu "Paul" in Pewter City. However, after the trade, Mondo says instead: "How wonderful! You made my day! Thanks to you, I have finally got the Pokémon I’ve been looking for... since forever!" It is not explicitly said if Haunter evolved into Gengar. As in the previous game, Mondo's dialogue does not change if Haunter is traded holding an Everstone.
  • In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Elyssa and Darrell's names do not traditionally match their genders. Since their names are switched in the games' remakes, it is likely this was a mistake.
  • Pokémon received from in-game trades in the Generation VI and VIII games have memories set. For example, in Pokémon Sword and Shield, the Togepi the player can trade for has the memory "Snips hatched from an Egg and saw Holly for the first time in a castle".
  • Kapoor's name and Artist Trainer class are likely a reference to British artist Anish Kapoor. The Duraludon he trades furthers this reference, since the real-life Kapoor has worked on numerous architectural projects.
  • In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, it is possible to become permanently trapped if the player trades away Finneon for Meister's Magikarp and has nothing else in their party that can learn Surf or Fly, as well as no Rare Candies to evolve Magikarp, or fishing rods to black out or evolve Magikarp.
