Hack-Check Thread (Read the OP for simple hack-checking)

Tough to tell, Shiny Roamers can be pretty hard to get shiny. Can you go to the Guy in Nimbasa City who tells potential in the Gear Station and see what he says? If he says Outstanding Potential, its likely a dumped / incorrect RNG and is legit.

This is the Power Plant Zapdos from Johto not Sinnoh's roamer Zapdos.

Looks fine.....I also have a legit Shiny Zapdos from the GTS, though mine has different OT than yours :p

It's at least legal from the information you've given.

A friend of mine just got a Pokemon off the GTS Nego, that has . as the OT (yes, just a single dot)

From what I can see, it looks legit, I'm just not sure about the OT, can we use a single dot as the OT in D/P/Pt? (the Pokemon is from Sinnoh)

I see, thanks :)

I know we could've tried it ourselves, but we just don't like the idea of restarting, even if it was just for testing small thing like this :p

So I've got a couple of Pokemon I'm a little sketch about:

Serperior, Bold Lv. 100 [Shiny]
IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 85 in everything
It seems to have been the starter Snivy met in Nuvema Town (@ Lv. 5) on 11/16/2010.

Drilbur, Naive Lv. 100 [Shiny]
IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 85 in everything
This was met in Wellspring Cave (@ Lv. 11) on 3/7/2011.

The moves and Pokeballs caught in check out fine, and it seems like they could have been RNGd, but the EVs and dates caught just seemed sketch to me (although I think you still need to change the date for RNGing IVs, right?). What do you guys think?

Yeah, both seem fine. Do you have the OT's for each? Usually Flawless Shiny ones, especially the Serperior will have a much better history with an OT given.

Oh, and yes, 5th Gen you need to change the date. Especially for flawless spreads :p

There's an option on pokesav that lets you put 85 EVS in each stat. So I wouldn't trust this. Why would someone be stupid to do that on a legit pokemon.

*cough*
they all look fine, not so sure about suicune as I'm not sure if it should say its from sinnoh if it was traded to from a HGSS to D/P/Pt and then transferred.

All of them look ok except Suicune, can't be caught in Sinnoh, and it would be Relaxed if it was an event one.

Crown Suicune only comes from one game version anyways, regardless of the game the Wondercard was received on. I can't remember if the Wi-Fi version is different from the GAMESTP one though.

Edit: What Pokémon is that supposed to be Shiny_Wooper?
