In-Game Trades

Like in Pokemon Red and Blue, there are a few times when you'll be asked to trade Pokemon with a non-player character. These trades don't differ much from the original games, and outside of Pokemon XD are still the only way to obtain certain Pokemon. There are, however, a few version exclusive trades, mostly capitalizing on the fact that certain Pokemon are only available in certain versions. Similar to Ruby and Sapphire, these Pokemon have a specific contest stat enhanced, but only in games where contests exist. Certain Pokemon also carry special items.

#122 Mr. Mime

Location: Route 2

Method:
The first in game trade you'll probably encounter is this one outside Diglett's Cave on Route 2. A man will offer you his Mr. Mime for your Abra. Abra can be bought at the Game Corner, whereas Mr. Mime doesn't appear in the wild at all, making this a good deal.

#108 Lickitung

Location: Route 18

Method:
Lickitung can only be obtained in this trade. As the Pokemon asked for differs between both games, Lickitung comes at slightly better value in FireRed as Psyduck evolves at a lower level than Slowpoke. The owner is found in the gate upstairs on Route 18..

#083 Farfetch'd

Location: Vermilion City

Method:
This trade offers Normal/Flying-type for Normal/Flying-type. Fartfetch'd can't be found anywhere else in the game, though in terms of brute force you're better off evolving the Spearow and using that. This is the only way to obtain the signature Stick item, however.

#086 Seel

Location: Cinnabar Island

Method:
The Cinnabar Island laboratory contains a couple of people who'd like to trade with you. These trades are mostly useless as you can catch all of the Pokemon offered in the wild at approximately the same difficulty. Ponyta for Seel is only helpful against Blaine if you can't be bothered to go to the Seafoam Islands to find one yourself.
