Better Trades

Here are some tips for a fast and smooth trade!

  1. DO NOT TRADE junk Pokemon that will trade evolve (e.g. Kadabra, Haunter, Machoke, Graveler, Boldore, Gurdurr, Phantump, Pumpkaboo). Doing so will greatly delay trades as we’ll have to wait for the evolution animation to complete.
  2. It’s cute, but try not to trade us a Pokemon of the same species as the one we’re trading you. For example, don’t trade us an Eevee if we’re also sending you an Eevee. It’s very confusing for us! Try keeping your junk Pokemon to really junk Pokemon.
  3. Figure out which are the junk Pokemon you are trading me before we begin – sort your boxes if necessary. It’ll save us both time if you don’t have to look through your boxes for them mid-trade.
  4. Communication is VITAL when setting up trades. You MUST be contactable so we can set up a trade. This means that the email you enter during Checkout must be valid and contactable – or you must actively communicate via site chat or Facebook. Remember to check your Spam!
  5. Upon purchase, you will immediately receive an email receipt, and trade details will be sent within 12-24 hours (or less). If you don’t receive these, send us a message via any of our channels.

During the Trade

Just send over junk Pokemon that you’ve caught for Pokemon that you’ve bought!

For Sword & Shield

Trading in Pokemon Sword and Shield requires a Nintendo Account and Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Your Switch Friend Code and in-game Card Code are unnecessary.

  1. Open the Y-Comm by pressing the Y button.
  2. Press [+] to connect to the Internet. The top right should say “Internet“.
  3. Select Link Trade, then Set Link Code.
  4. Key in the Link Code you received from Rawkhet when your order is ready, only when you are told to do so.
  5. Wait for the trade to be established. Stay in the overworld and do not open any menus.
  6. Important: Make sure that you are trading with Rawkhet (shown at the top right). If not, leave the trade and try again.

Please ensure you have a stable Internet connection to trade. To check if you can trade online with Rawkhet (and others), do an Internet Connection Test on your Switch (System Settings > Internet > Test Connection) and ensure that your NAT Type is A, B, or C (where A/B is ideal).

NAT Type D and F will NOT be able to connect with other players. Mobile Hotspots from your iOS or Android device, public WiFi, and work/enterprise WiFi are usually D. Use a different network or find troubleshooting steps here.

For Home

Transfer to Pokemon Home requires a Home Premium Subscription.

The only listing on Rawkhet Pokemon that is compatible with Pokemon Home is the Living Dex Collection. Delivery from other listings such as ones from USUM or SWSH is NOT supported (explanation).

  2. Select Move in the main menu.
  3. Select Begin Move.
  4. Follow the steps until you see a Moving Key. Screenshot, take a photo, or copy the key and send it as fast as possible, we must enter it within 3 minutes.

Friend Codes (3DS)

  1. Make sure your Internet connection has been set up in the 3DS Settings, and that you are within range of your Wi-Fi network.
