I don't know if this is already posted, i use the "Search" and don't found any thead about this. I read somewhere that you can evolve Pokemons that need to be traded without trade, i haven't tested yet so let me know if it works. 1. - If needs an item to evolve, equip the item before start 2. - Go to GTS, offer it, and ask for an impossible-to-get Pokemon to be sure that nobody take it (like Dialga under Lvl.40). 3. - Wait for (i'm not sure if you need to wait, like i said before i haven't tested yet). 4. - Return to the GTS and take back your Pokemon. The Pokemon will evolve. When i read it i star to think that maybe this work to clone Pokemons and use the Master Ball more than one time and i found how to do that. This only work for Flashcard/backup users. 1. - Backup your save (you need to have a Friend Code asigned before backup your save). 2. - If you want to clone a Pokemon go to Step 3. Catch the Pokemon you want with the Master Ball. 3. - Go to GTS, offer it, and ask for an impossible-to-get Pokemon. 4. - Restore your save. 5. - Return to the GTS and take back your Pokemon. Ta daa!, you have the Pokemon and the Master Ball. I can confirm that this method works (Master Ball, clone Pokemon).
