Unless the OT/ID No is a known hacker's combination, it looks legal. There was an event for the MysticTicket in Japan in 2004.

Edit: Ignore my comment, someone confirmed it was hacked.

Hacked.
OT and Nickname would need to be in a different character set with a JPN tag.
IVs you've given are impossible for that kind of capture.
Even if IVs you've given are wrong and the OT+nickname is in the JPN character set, the only remotely reasonable spread occurs 9 minutes into the game, too long for a SR and a garbage spread to RNG considering there would also be a shiny Calm 20/30/30/15/18/6 spread only 6 minutes in.


it looks legal
...what exactly were you checking?

I can't speak for the reliability of the OT or ID, but I can tell you that this Infernape is hex-flawless (31/31/31/31/31/31) with an EV spread of 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe. It is VERY unlikely that it was randomly hatched this way (although it could be - I have randomly hatched a hex-flawless shiny before). It is more likely that it was either RNG'd or hacked.

I would assume it was RNG'd unless someone outright tells you that the OT/ID combo is a known hacker.

Focus Punch is a REALLY weird move to have on Infernape, though, and it doesn't have Fake Out. Whoever was RNGing/hacking it doesn't know what they're doing in the competitive scene. They probably thought Focus Punch would work well with Iron Fist...

Already reason enough to believe it's hacked.

10 seconds of google brought up this german forum where someone is offering what appears to be a Scrap Code Victini hacked to have the same weird OT name.


Can't RNG shiny Iron Fist Chimchar, and I'm pretty sure it's impossible to get a previous gen mon to say "Faraway Place" in 6th gen.

I also Googled the OT, but I can't read German....

Why can't you RNG shiny Iron Fist Chimchar?

You are right about the "Faraway Place" tag. I did accidentally read that as "time and space".

Alright. I can read German fluently, so I'll take a look.
Thank you :3

Why can't you RNG shiny Iron Fist Chimchar?

Iron Fist Chimchar was only available via DW in gen 5 and only as a male. DW pokemon could not be shiny and males could not pass down the ability. Thus you could RNG a Shiny Chimchar, or a DW Chimchar if you managed to get one via code (I think they were only given out via code but i don't really keep up with event pokemon in other countries). It was impossible in gen 5 to have a shiny Iron Fist Chimchar. Gen 6 RNGing is impossible as far as I know so that's not an option for RNGing either.

Darkrai looks legal, its details match up with the one for the 14th Pokemon movie event. Jirachi is obliviously hacked as it lacks the event ribbon.
