Are we sure about this? I know that female Fossil pokemon could be caught through dream radar with their hidden abilities, but they can also be caught in alternate balls (ex Kabuto in Luxury Ball, Lileep in Nest Ball, etc)
That is the Dream World (within white/black) you're thinking about, not the Dream Radar (different game)

Is it possible to catch a legendary Pokemon in Gen 6 without 3 perfect IVs? I just got a Kyogre, apparently caught in the Cave of Origin, but it only has one Perfect IV (in Sp.A. It's also Modest).

Another interesting thing: it's got the optimal spread for hidden power ground.

badly hacked. event darkrais cannot be shiny so it was clearly made shiny through powersaves then ribbon was hacked off to be traded through gts.

All legendary pokémon will have at least 3 perfect IVs, are you sure your Kyogre isn't from gen 3 Sapphire's Cave of Origin?

That'd be a hack if it has the blue pentagon, since 3 perfect IVs are the minimum.

Hello. I have a darkrai that looks to be PERFECT. And i want to be sure it is not hacked. This is the info on it:

No gender.

not shiny.

EV's unknown.

6 Iv's (pretty nice huh?)

Nature: Naive

Other notes: i wouldn't think a darkrai would have THIS high of stats, so i THINK it might be hacked. My little brother told me you guys would figure it out :). (even though i like pokemon, Iv'e never been interested in the forums before, so I'm a noob to this place)

Math works out fine regardless of EVs and IVs because of the neutral nature. I even triple checked my results using the calculator on the main site.

I guess the HP EVs are 248, since otherwise 190 HP is impossible.

Other than that, unless the OT/ID combination is that of a known hacker, one cannot say whether this Empoleon is a hack or legit. It's like Shrodinger's Empoleon.

Just because thee stats are possible doesn't necessarily mean it's a legit shiny...

Looks like a Ranger Manaphy, though, which is the one kind that can be shiny. However, the only chance for it being shiny is if it was traded to another cartridge before it was hatched, so it's pretty unlikely for it to legitimately be shiny unless the person RNGed it. It's possible, but honestly fairly unlikely. It doesn't have any 31 IVs, and honestly the people with the skill and balls to RNG a shiny Manaphy would probably not waste their time just going for just shininess.

It's legal from the info given. Could be RNGed, could be hacked; either way, it's at least legal assuming it's from Sinnoh/Johto.

I see, but then would there be a possibility it could be a hack since there's not a single 31iv?

I thought so. It was way to good to not be hacked. Thank you very much.
