• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

The Black Market

In the shadowy back alleys of ASB Central, trainers sometimes gather, huddling together and speaking in low tones as pokéballs and money change hands. Never in the same place twice, run by nameless, faceless administrators, TCoD's Black Market is the place to head if you want to deal in items and pokémon for a low price, no questions asked.

The Black Market

In the Black Market you can sell pokémon and items to other players, buy what other players have put up for offer, or trade items or pokémon directly. There are no restrictions on how much or little you can offer pokémon or items for, although if you are suspected of abusing the trade post (i.e. you put a bunch of pokémon up on offer for $0 and your friend appears right away to grab them all), your transaction will be denied. Also, think GTS here: if you put your chikorita up on offer and request $100 for it, a deal is not happening.

If you offer to buy a pokémon, wait to get it approved until the player who offered it confirms the transaction before going off to the Registration Office. The seller may deny your transaction if he or she wishes, or someone else can counteroffer on the item or pokémon. You may also attempt to negotiate prices in this thread if you see something you want but don't want to pay quite as much as it is being offered for.

If you just want to get rid of something with no hassle and don't mind taking a bit of a smaller profit, you can instead sell items or pokémon directly to the black market. Simply post here with what you want to drop off, then visit the bank to claim one third the pokémon or item's price, rounded down, in return. Items or pokémon sold in this way will be added to the first post of this thread and offered for sale to other players at half their official price. If no one wants them after a few months, they will be released back into the wild--gone forever, from the point of view of the members of the league.

If you want to buy a pokémon or item from the Market, simply post which one you want in the thread and immediately make your bank and approval posts; no need to wait for a confirmation.
