New to trading? Not sure how this works? Check out the Rawkhet Pokemon Trade Guide – everything you need to know about how to trade from start to finish on the Nintendo Switch or 3DS!

Earlier today, Nintendo released a firmware update on the Switch. This means we are unable to go online at the moment and trades are currently on hold (customers with pending orders would have received an email, and the Status page is updated to reflect this).
The good news is that this is a trivial update that can be easily solved, but Nintendo has released the patch at a bad time with Custom Firmware (CFW) currently undergoing a refactor (think restructuring) process that is expected to complete on or by Sunday.
We are well equipped to deal with this and will attempt to process orders ahead of time. As we have 2 Switch consoles, we’ll update one to Official Firmware (OFW) and process outstanding orders on Friday night and the other on Saturday night.
This has been Rawkhet’s busiest week with near non-stop trading, living off McDonalds and Uber Eats. For the first time ever, we’ve been forced to hire additional hands!
We’ve created a temporary Site Status page so that customers can keep track of where their order stands. The page also offers an explanation on our process and lists foreseeable downtime.
Thank you all for your patience and patronage.
Uh-oh, it’s starting to become clear that we can’t continue on just using one Switch like we thought. The standby Switch is now in the mix! This should hopefully ease the load and decrease queue timings. One big improvement in Sword and Shield is we don’t use Friend Codes anymore (let’s just pretend LGPE doesn’t exist). This allows us to load balance much better, as customers are not assigned a static console to trade with.
