    For encounter RNG, no. Only Modest, Timid, Docile (pff) and Calm can be IV 31 all in Generation IV. Shiniess is easy if you know what nature + IV spread you're going for.
    For breeding, any nature is possible with ANY IV spread.

    You can check the EVs in Super Training and you can check its IVs at the Pokemon Center at the Battle Maison
    Otherwise this OT and ID Combination seems very suspicious, and even more suspicious that it came from wonder trade, already evolved and at full level. We can safely assume that this Pokemon is a hack.

    Reisuke Apparently i died

    I bet that when you check it's IVs you'll get something around 31/31/31/XX/31/31. But anyway date doesn't really matter much since that can be changed. And hack. Nobody gives away legit flawless shinies through WT

    I bought an old Y cartridge, the former owner didn't delete the old save file and I found lots of shiny legendaries, but most of them are really suspicious, so I want to check a few that I still doubt.

    I have a question that is not exactly a hack check, but I don't know a better place to ask (if there is a place Please tell me).
    I just got a 6 iv shiny japanese Ditto from GTS... for a Chimchar. I won't even bother ask if it is hacked. My doubt is, if I use it for breeding, will the offspring be considered hacked or illegal? Is it down to personal preference? Thanks!
  7. DX 2401PT

    I don't see anything wrong with the Darkrai. Timid IV 31 all is possible in Generation IV. And even without having access to the event location, it's apparently legal to use a cheating device to gain access. Or maybe it's from Diamond or Pearl, in which case you can use tweaking to get to Darkrai and then RNG there. Not sure if RNGing can be done at the same time as tweaking, but it could be what happened. And for Luxury Ball... it can be done. Just a bit hard and annoying.

    For Reshiram, I think it was the Reshiram/Zekrom giveaway for Black and White, where Black got Zekrom and White got Reshiram. Not sure, though. And in a generation where RNG is so easy, IV 31 all is quite common there.

    Also, I heard that there is a way to bypass the shiny lock that's on Reshiram and Zekrom in BW (not BW2). The process involves putting yourself in a situation where you cannot possibly catch Reshiram/Zekrom when the game forces you (by filling up every single box and your party), which then allows you to battle them in the Dragonspiral Tower afterwards, and there, the shiny lock isn't present. Anyone confirm or bust this method/theory (as in, has anyone ever tried)? It's definitely something I'd try myself, if the process wasn't such a gigantic pain.

    I got some guys recently that raised some red flags.

    Pokemon Species:Deerling
    Nickname: No nickname
    OT: Aubrey
    OT Gender: Female
    IDno: 06537
    Shiny?: Yes
    EV's: 0
    IV's: Outstanding in everything
    Nature: Naughty
    Characteristic: Likes to trash about
    Ability: Chlorophyll
    Level Caught at: 1, from day care helpers
    Current Level:1
    Stats: 12-6-6-6-5-6
    Location Caught: Hatched at route 7
    Egg?: Yes
    Pokeball Caught In: Pokeball
    Any other notes?: The Egg recieved date is 12/25/2013, and the Egg hatched date is 4/25/2012 Seems pretty weird to me, even if i've been told that date is meaningless most of the time

    Pokemon Species: Delphox
    Nickname: Magic
    OT: TIM
    OT Gender: Male
    Shiny?: Yes
    EV's: (if known)- Fairly spread out, the standar " I dont know what EV's are" full training
    IV's: (if known)- Outstanding in everything
    Nature:- Careful
    Characteristic: Alert to sounds
    Ability: Blaze
    Moves: Sunny day, psychic, flamethrower, solar beam

    Current Level: 100
    Stats: 308-207-196-252-270-277
    Location Caught: Hatched in aquacorde town
    Egg?: Yes, recieved from a link trade
    Pokeball Caught In: Pokeball
    Any other notes?: Has the kalos champion and footprint ribbon. Seems like it was from a guy who was deleting his file

    Finally,There is a trackless forest suicune that I recieved on wondertrade. Level 100. but only with decent potential, highest in atack and 0 IV's on speed, and I got a pangoro from a friend last weekend. Everything seems to check out, except for the fact that it has a japanese name, but it's not from japan and the OT is named serena. Anyways, my gut tells me that the first 3 are probably hacked, specially the delphox, but I wanted to get a second or third opinion from the experts.

    Haven't tested it myself, but I'm pretty certain that rumor was debunked a long time ago. Reshiram/Zekrom were completely shiny-locked until Gen VI.

    On Reddit, no. Anywhere else, yes. xD
    Not that it would actually be objectively detectable in the offspring, since you're not going to get illegal balls with a ditto...
    If you want to be safe, feel free to PM/VM me and I'll throw you one of my flawless RNGed Japanese Ditto to breed with. :D

    Sorry man, but eevees and therefore their evolutions can not be legally obtained in apricorn balls, the love ball that you described being one of them. Besides that, everything is too shady, being a fully trained shiny with HA

    In other words, this is a very bad hack.

    Yeah, unfortunately, at least the Ball is illegal, unless you somehow mistook Heal Ball/Dream Ball for a Love Ball.

    Also, 31/31/31/0/31/31 spread on a shiny? I don't believe if none of those two aspects are not touched by illegal device.

    At least the perfect IV spread, or the shininess, is not there originally. Could even be both. It is perfectly possible to get an Adamant shiny, but having the perfect IV spread as well, requires an amount of luck so high no one would be giving away the shiny if they got one.

    Even with both parents being flawless + Destiny Knot, it's still a 1 in 32 chance for the random last IV to be 0, and then there's the shiny chance - hitting both at the same time is just extremely unlikely to happen.

    Not to mention you said "she" - Eevee line has a smaller chance to be female, making the whole thing even more extremely unlikely.

    And does the Summary says the egg was received from the Day Care keeper? I once found a shiny from WT with incorrect Summary, making it extremely obvious it was hacked.

    Manaphy looks a bit iffy with the 6 perfect IVs but the Diancie looks legal. Victini is probably hacked as the Liberty Garden Victini is supposed to have the fateful encounter flag even though you catch it yourself.
