An in-game trade is a trade made with NPCs in the core series and spin-off Pokémon games. The process uses the same trading sequence as player trades and is usually done for Pokémon that are difficult or impossible to obtain through other means, or for Pokémon unavailable at that point of the game. In later games, the traded Pokémon often has special moves, like Egg moves.

Prior to Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the NPC Trainer will always specify a Pokémon they want to trade for. The Pokémon the player receives in the trade will have a fixed original Trainer and nickname; in later games the Trainer ID number, held item, Nature, IVs, and/or level can be fixed as well.

Like Pokémon traded externally, the traded Pokémon will be treated as an outsider, and gain a boosted amount of experience points in battle. Prior to Generation V, every Pokémon has the same level as the Pokémon it was traded for, except in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

List of in-game trades

Generation I

All Trainer ID numbers and IVs are random in the Generation I games. The original Trainer always uses the hardcoded text string 0x5D, which is displayed as "TRAINER" (Japanese: トレーナー Trainer) in the game's language. In Western languages, in the handheld games and Pokémon Stadium this original Trainer is displayed in ALLCAPS ("TRAINER" in English), whereas in Pokémon Stadium 2 it is displayed in title case ("Trainer" in English).

Red and Blue / Red and Green

In Pokémon Red and Blue, Nidoran♂ is traded for Nidoran♀; in Pokémon Red and Green, Nidoran♀ is traded for Nidoran♂.

The held item column refers to the item the Pokémon will be holding if it is traded to a Generation II game. This item is different than a wild Pokémon of the same species would have if it were traded.
