    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 right, then. At least that's one more Pokedex entry down.

    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?
  7. Naemeria

    Naemeria Pokémon Breeder

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

    I think it's a possible hack as no pokemon can have a 7 in every stat category? But, again, thank you for your help!

    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?

    Unless you know for sure it's not hacked, there's always a possibility that it could be hacked.

    Hello everybody.
    I received a mew from my friend but I´m kinda unsure if it´s hacked or not. Can you please check it for me ?

    Nickname: Mew
    IDno: 61670
    Shiny?: Yes
    EV's: zero, appears to be untouched
    Nature: Timid
    Characteristic: Likes to thrash about
    Ability: Synchronize

    Any other notes?: I got from my friend, but it got really good ivs and nature, aside from the fact it is shiny; making me kind of dubious. Just wanted to make sure it´s not hacked. Thank you.

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