    [Guide] Trading Pets

    Welcome to trix's guide to Pet Trading. Please feel free to add anything/critique the guide

    Table of Contents
    • Acronyms
    • Customs
    • Names
    • Colour popularity
    • Species popularity
    • Trading UCs
    • Other helpful guides



    Acronyms

    This is a list of commonly used acronyms in the Neopian Pound board:


    Customs
    If you are offered a 'custom' this means the person who offered is willing to paint/morph the pet they have offered to suit your liking. For example if Janine the Royal Peophin was UFT someone might offer Latoya the Baby Kau + 1mil custom. You could then ask the offerer to morph/paint Latoya into something you'd prefer on a budget of 1million neopoints, i.e. ask them to paint her Faerie.


    Names
    If you've ever traded a pet before you might know that the PC are a very picky bunch when it comes to names. Of course it depends on the individual you're trading with but in general this is the ranking order of names:

    RN (Real Name) - i.e. Bob, Jane, Lauren, John
    RW (Real Word) - i.e. Slippers, Igloo, Pea, Chocolate

    VWN - Xxxxx - i.e. Allie, these names are capped so they resemble a real name and usually 5-6 characters or shorter and contain no numbers or underscores
    WN - Xxxxxxx, xxxxx - i.e. Letishia, these also contain no numbers or underscores but may be slight longer and uncapped
    DN - XxxxXxxx, xxx_xxx - i.e FluffyBunny, these can be two words or may contain one underscore, or one number
    BN - xxx_xxxx_xxx, xxxx###, -i.e DarkKnight278, these contain multiple underscores/numbers and are usually uncapped/randomly capped
    VBN - xxxXxxXx_X## - no one will want these pets, unless perhaps they are UC


    Colour Popularity

    Colours rankings:
    High:



    Medium High:

    Medium:


    Medium Low:


    Low:


    Very Low:



    Species Popularity

    Highest - Krawks and Draiks (Although bear in mind that due to the deflation of PDEs and PKMPs these pets do not carry the same value they once did

    Medium - Cybunnies, Poogles, Kacheeks, Xweetoks

    Low - All other pets


    Trading UCs
    Due to their popularity UCs are only usually traded for other UCs. However if you have a popular RW/RN or expensively painted Draik, sometimes people are willing to part with their UCs.

    Here is a database that shows what UCs have traded for in the past:

    Nice guide! I'm on the PC a lot so I already know all these terms, but for someone new to trading this could be really helpful.

    You srs bro?

    It means what pets looked like pre-customisation as not every pet was automatically converted to the new drawing style

    ^ That tells you all about UCs and shows you all their pics at the bottom

    Hey @trix mind telling me how you do those spoiler things? I've been trying to figure that out for a while but apparently I'm too stupid to do so.
