Just wondering, but has anyone ever traded a Pokemon from Red or Blue to Yellow just so they could learn certain moves before trading them back again?

I've done. (and i'll do again, when necessary)
It was about learning Focus energy to Eevees and fly to Charizard
I'm certainly just one of numerous guys who had already done that...

Well, I've met a couple people who've deemed it "unethical", likening it to giving them shots of steroids. I've just wondered what people here thought as far as that.

Of course, being Azure Heights, anyone here should be ready, willing, and able to beef up their Pokemon any way they can. ^^

You mean well and all, and bar the ^^ thing you seem alright, but you're about five years too late, sir. There hasn't been much serious Pokémon related discussion here in a long time.

The eyebrow thing, I don't know where I picked that up from. And granted I've been out of it for five years. But then again, as long as the net exists, nothing truly dies. Besides. I'm sure I'm not the only one who still plays the chromatics.

You've got to be kidding... Go to any pawn shop or video game trader and you should be able to pick one up for 5 or 10 bucks. Learn how so many people wasted their time in days long past. And I'm not talking about the Fire Red or Leaf Green ones either. I'm talking way old school.

I've only ever owned Red, so I haven't been able to trade at all.

And last year it was $8.99 pre-owned at Electronics Boutique.

Pointless post.. you may resume your typical lives now.

Hope that works out for you.

Back to the topic, anyone trade across series? Such as trading a Kadabra to Gold to evolve it AND teach it Thunder Punch, just to trade it back. I remember causing all sorts of hell at a tournament with that one ^^

Old stuff

Maybe if I made my post ten paragraphs long like everyone else it may have attracted more attention, but I still think it's the most logical thing stated there.

As for these days, last I knew, online tournies disallow moves learned from G/S/C.

I always thought if you were able and it's legal it's cool. I did give heads up to opponents when using tradeback moves online. It didn't come up that ofter though. Old news now. The first one I traded back was an Amnesia Nidoking though.

My whole problem that day was my Mindbender (Alakazam) with a Thunder Punch. As soon as a used it, the ref tried to disqualify me. The rules specifically stated only moves the pokemon could learn naturally or from TMs. Since it never restricted us to moves only learnable in RBY, I traded one to Gold, taught him Thunder Punch, and traded back. I mean, I proved he could learn the move without sharking. The ref couldn't disqualify me for it in the end, but a bunch of people called me a cheater. That prompted a big middle finger as I took second place.

Of course, they never knew I sharked everything else ^^ Hey! As long as it looks legal...
