    Post here if you're not sure if your Pokemon is legitimate or not, or to help another user. Be sure to follow all other SPPf rules and use this form when posting:
    Pokemon Species:
    OT Gender: (red=female, blue=male)
    EV's: (if known)
    IV's: (if known)
    Level Caught at:
    Current Level:
    Location Caught:
    Pokeball Caught In:
    Game used to get info:
    Any other notes?:

    If you can provide a picture with this info and more, that would help out people checking.

    Also check the event databases/Pokedex first yourself for some preliminary checking.

    Disclaimer: Remember, it is impossible for anyone to truly say a Pokemon is legit unless you caught it yourself. This thread can serve as a guide to tell you if a Pokemon is definitely hacked, or tell you if it looks legit, but hackers can make any Pokemon look legit with enough effort.

    1 Sept 12 NEW RULE: This thread is for Pokémon that are currently in a Diamond, Pearl Platinum, HeartGold or Soul Silver box or party. If the Pokémon you're checking is now in Black, White, Black 2 or White 2 box or party, you must use this thread: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?497187-Hack-Check-Thread

    EDIT BY BIG NUTTER (19-Mar-11): Added Game used to get info. -Depending on the game, some Locations in Sinnoh and All Locations in Johto/Kanto will display Faraway Place, instead of "Route 1".

    Legit Newmoon Island Darkrai were only released for Platinum and were Lv50. The Lv40 ones from D/P are either hacked or tweaked. But either way it's not legit.

    sorry, no where in the games can you find a legit level 100 garchomp.
    If you get a hacked pokemon and use it, your game will implode, and I will hover over you with a knife while you sleep for the next twenty years

    The whole garchomp caught at route 201 is a dead give-away. ^ She was obviously joking, in reality using it is unlikely to cause any damage, normally the only person's game who gets damaged by hacking is the hacker's. (Abuse of an AR is not wise). But it will get you in trouble to use it against other people.

    Magikarp in HG/SS and DW Arceus in B/W would like to disagree with you. :p
  13. Byzantine

    Byzantine Well-Known Member

    Magikarp in platinum as well, but still, those are 2-3 very specific cases that that pokemon clearly does not fall into.

    This was traded to me on my Platinum game.

    Thank you very much people. I'll keep GARCHOMP in a box by itself and threaten my other pokemon with it when they misbehave. (I woun't put them in the same box though) And then I'll set it freeeee, thanks again :)

    Do you think I should release it then? I've grown fond of it over the days though… :(
  17. Byzantine

    Byzantine Well-Known Member

    If you keep it just make sure to not use it in online battles or trades, etc. No one really cares what you have as long as you keep it to yourself :).
  18. SpiritChaser

    So I should just assume that since I haven't heard anything else about my Ho-oh, that its not legit?
  19. Byzantine

    Byzantine Well-Known Member

    No, that just means no one has taken the time to check it out. I think they RNGed it, and probably cloned it afterwords, but it does appear legit.

    I have trade a pokemon for a ditto with perfect ivs.
    But the ditto is hacked, are the pokemon that i breed with it hacked? or they are legit?
