Note:
Go to different places, and see if you can get a Surprise Trade. You will not know what Pokemon you are getting until you actually receive them!

Trading a Pokemon is very easy. You just need to select a Pokemon from your boxes that you are willing to trade and voila! A trading partner will be found automatically as you continue on your adventure.

Note:
The game will keep trying to match you with a trading partner in the background, so there is no need to wait for a match.
