An in-game trade is a trade made with NPCs in the core series and spin-offPokémon 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.

The held item column refers to the item the Pokémon will be holding if it is traded to a Generation II game. With the exception of Pokémon that evolve during that trade and Krabby in Japanese Blue, they have the same item a wild Pokémon of the same species would have if it were traded to a Generation II game; Pokémon that evolve during the trade have the item their evolved form would have, while Krabby has TM13 (Snore) instead of TM33 (Ice Punch).
Pokémon Red and Green (Japan), Pokémon Red and Blue (Western)
This (full) data is stored in Mobile System GB related code for Japanese Pokémon Crystal. It also appears earlier in the ROM, but with the Original Trainer data not included. Kabīn is possibly a reference to the Game Freak Kōji Nishino and Snorlax (Japanese: カビゴン) in-jokes, and the early 'Kabīn battle' concept art. The code remains in English Crystal, however, the Japanese names were not translated; resulting in garbage text, and the game causes problems as it expects the English name length.
In the English language version of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Kazza, Charap, and Gaspar are functionally Japanese in origin. While this has no effect in the Generation IV games (since their species do not have foreign Pokédex entries in the Generation IV games), it becomes noticeable when sent to later generations. These Pokémon have the correct language of origin if obtained in any other game language or Pokémon Platinum.
Unique to this generation, some of the Pokémon that are traded to the NPC can be battled again by that NPC. These are marked with a † icon. The gender and Ability traded is kept in the new battle, and in Black and White, the traded Pokémon evolves, but the moves may change, even if HMs were taught to the Pokémon when traded. The new level is based on the level of the Pokémon traded to the NPC: 65 if it was below 65, 5 more than the initial level if it was at least 65 but below 96, and 100 if it was at least level 96.
Except for trades with Yancy and Curtis, all traded Pokémon are guaranteed to have 1 perfect IV and all others set to 20.

Regina's trades can be done an unlimited number of times. After trading with her, she will randomly relocate elsewhere on the Isle of Armor, offering another Pokémon, randomly, from the table below. All traded Pokémon have no nicknames, have randomized Natures, can be either gender, can be Shiny, and have a static Egg Move. Normal form Pokémon have their Hidden Ability, while Alolan Form Pokémon can have either of their standard Abilities. The trades for Farfetch'd and Darumaka are only available to players whose base game is Pokémon Sword, while the trades for Ponyta and Corsola are are only available to players whose base game is Pokémon Shield.
In Japanese Pokémon Blue, Lickitung and Jynx were made available in the wild. In Pokémon Yellow, Lickitung and Farfetch'd were made available in the wild as well. Therefore, Mr. Mime (in all languages) and Jynx (in languages other than Japanese) remained unavailable in the wild until Generation II.
Due to being exclusive to in-game trades, until the release of later games in which they could be obtained in the wild, they could only have their traded nicknames and the Original Trainer of "TRAINER".
Similarly, the old man who trades the player Jynx for Poliwhirl in Cerulean City claims that Poliwhirl "went and evolved". Poliwhirl does not evolve by trade in the Generation I games but rather through the use of a Water Stone. In the context of the Japanese Pokémon Blue, the old man trades away Haunter for Machoke, both of which evolve by trade.
Pokémon received from in-game trades in the Generation VI and VIII games have memories set. For example, in Pokémon Sword and Shield, the Togepi the player can trade for has the memory "Snips hatched from an Egg and saw Holly for the first time in a castle".
Kapoor's name and Artist Trainer class are likely a reference to British artist Anish Kapoor. The Duraludon he trades furthers this reference, since the real-life Kapoor has worked on numerous architectural projects.
