I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but I can't trade Proto Man nor Disco to Dr. Light. When I try, the drop menu to trade (the one that says Wily and Light) doesn't appear. I tried trading other robots and they all seem to work perfectly. Or am I not suposed to trade them? I don't see this restriction in any other robot, only in Proto and Disco...

Hmmm. I implemented some changes to the transfer system in last weekend's update and I just haven't made a post about it yet.
Basically, players cannot "give away" their robots unless they have at least as many robots as the other player in their party. This was to prevent people from transferring their entire team over to one player and then leaving the other with only one robot - not only did this make for less-fun player battles but also messes with the formatting of the leaderboards. The exception to this rule is robots who are not with their original owner - if a robot is visiting another player's save file it can alwaysbe transferred back.
I'm still debating whether this is something I want to keep (and therefore make the rules more obvious in-game) or get rid of. What do you guys think? Was it a mistake or maybe you have other ideas? Note that eventually a third player will be added to the main game - Cossack - and ideally I would want all players to always have an even number of robots on their team (or as close as possible). So yeah, please let me know your thoughts on the matter. :P
Oooooh, so it was THAT. I think a good idea would be to turn the trade system more of a trade system and less of a transfer system, so you don't send robots, but you rather trade Robot A for Robot B. I think that would be the best way, as they all would get 10 robots (Starter, Helper and the 8 RobotMasters) except for the one that gets the Met.

I completely agree. I'm actually kicking myself for not implementing the trade system in the first place, because now it will be very hard to when people have already transferred their robots all over to one side of the other. I'll obviously figure something out, but I should probably remove the restriction for the time being. Sorry about that...
EDIT : I remove it for the time being - you should be able to transfer normally now. I'll have to think of something later to make this work better... Thanks for testing it out. :P
