I saw how to randomly trade two Pokémon (known as wonder trade) or trade Pokémon with a specific or random player (known as link trade).

But how can I trade in such a way I give a specific Pokémon and get a specific other one, as it was possible in Pokémon X and Y, and in Sun and Moon (known as GTS)?

On January 28th 2020, it has been officially confirmed that Pokémon Home will feature the Global Trade System.

Pokémon Home will feature a free version and premium version. Through the GTS, the free version will allow you trade up to 1 Pokémon at once time while the premium version will allow you to trade up 3 Pokémon at once.

The Global Trading System (GTS) did not make its return in Sword and Shield, so trading in this manner is not a native feature in these games.

As an alternative, you could always join a Reddit or Discord group that could be used as a mock-GTS. A friend of mine is apart of a Discord group where he can request specific Pokémon with IV spread, moves, etc... and somebody will hook him up with one using the link trade feature.
