I understand that we're pretty early in a beta here, and some of these features may be coming anyway, but in case they're not already on the list I'd like to get them out there:

  • Trade history, please.
  • I'd really just like to be able to browse all the cards that are available, instead of having to go through invidual players, though I understand this may be a large burden on the servers and was ruled out because of such a possibility.
  • Request a tradeback (Should be self-explainatory, some sort of button in your trade history that lets you request a tradeback with your previous trade partner, I would say for "privacy" reasons it should not check in advance if they still have the cards or not and just wait for their action.)
  • If a player is requesting a foil/non-foil version of a card, perhaps have it show the other versions of it when you filter by what they're looking for, but have some sort of mark to point out that it's not the specific one they wanted. Since I imagine a lot of people will not go through the trouble requesting both foil and non-foil.

I apologize in advance if any of these are actually already in there and I just didn't notice. [img]http://www.pokemontcg.com/javascripts/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/png/embarassed_smile.png[/img]

remind me to never post at 5 in the morning =)

In case my bad grammer and spelling wasn't clear, my suggestion is:

When you receive a trade offer, instead of only being able to accept or decline the offer, I would love to see an third option where you could make a counter-offer. It would be so much easier to go into the current trade, edit the one card you don't like in the offer, and send the counter offer. Rather then having to decline, wait until your trade partner is online again, reselect all the cards and make an offer.

I would also prefer to have a kind of "trade center"

So you can see what everybody has up for trade and what they want in return instead of having to wait for a trading partner to be online.

I'm really digging all of these suggestions everyone. Please keep up all the hard work or conveying ot us how you feel about all the features.

And know that you can never type too much (yes that's a challenge <img src="http://www.pokemontcg.com/javascripts/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/png/tounge_smile.png" alt="" />) because not only do we want to know what you think or want, but we want to know the why; all of it. No reasoning is too silly or out there. Whatever your motivations for feeling how you do are, they are important to us!


Always feel free to submit a ticket to The Pokémon Support Team at [url=http://support.pokemon.com]support.pokemon.com[/url] with any bug reports, concerns or issues. Remember, you MUST be signed into your Pokémon Trainer Club Account to receive a response.

quoteing myself from the other thread so everything is in the same thread.

Instead of only being able to select an individual, and look through each persons cards individually. It would be nice if once you select the card you are looking for, you're offered a list of players who have that card for trade.

Also I found it a little confusing when being offered a trade, which cards I'm getting and which cards I'd be trading (almost made a trade I would have completely regreted) It could use some clearer wording.

Finally, I would really like it if there was a quick way to put your entire collection up for trade. It took me nearly an hour to put each of my cards individually on the trade list.

also it would be cool if you could buy certain cards. You guys could do something like a gift card you sell in the stores.
