Another day, another dilemma in the Pokemon Go world. This time, the problem revolves around the new Guaranteed Lucky Trades.
Niantic announced the new feature, and to be fair, that announcement was quite strange. There was not enough information about this and how these Guaranteed Lucky Trades work. They came, they announced and that was it.
A post dawned on TheSilphRoad’s Reddit, where the user going by the name u/BravoDelta23 explained in detail how they understand the new Guaranteed Lucky Trades work. So what they are saying is that the Guaranteed Lucky Trade is eligible for any Trainer that has not “wasted” their fifteen Guaranteed Trades (yes, a possible cap). The process begins once a Trainer sends off their Pokemon that has been in their “storage” since 2017. However, many are wasting their good Pokemon from 2017.
The “cap” does not include Lucky Friends Trades and random Lucky Trades. Once this limit has been reached (which is fifteen), a Trainer will not and can not get a Guaranteed Lucky Trade. However, the Guaranteed Lucky Trade counter will be increased by one for both players, no matter which Trainer began first with the Guaranteed Lucky Trades. The not-so-good part is that Pokemon Go will not inform you if a trade has been a part of the Guaranteed Lucky Trade, so you will never know for certain.
Pokemon Go is good at tracking everything, so beware, every Guaranteed Lucky Trade is already in the system, no matter if that Trade has begun with a Pokemon from 2016/17.
