I doubt the this thing is legal, since it carries 6IVs on day one, but a second opinion would be appreciated.

It's supposed to come in a Cherish Ball, 3 of those moves are from move tutors from ORAS, idk why they would delete its signature move for that but the pokeball is wrong

Apologies, meant to say cherish ball, (The shiny fully red one). I get those 2 confused every now and then.

If it came from GTS or Wonder Trade it's a hack. It should have a ribbon.

I don't see anything wrong with it. Looks like a random shiny someone found. For the TMs the person probably wanted to use the Minun and taught it those moves but then decided they didn't want it.

Buneary was never available in any Safari Zone. If it was hatched from an egg then whether it should be considered hacked or not comes down to how you view illegal ball passing.

I checked the Sinnoh Safari Zone and had the same thought. Could you elaborate on your latter statement (in bolded)?

Here's an article on what I mean.

Basically it's a question of "do you consider the entire line of legally bred Pokémon with a normally illegal ball to be hacked because of a hacked/edited mother that was used somewhere in their lineage."

Hmm okay, that explains everything. Gonna be a tough call, but after looking into this further (cross checking egg moves, Safari Zone Pokemon that's out there, etc), my opinion is leaning towards the Buneary being a potential no-no because of the circumstances involved.

Thanks for the insight!

I hear that Eppie's Mew is the "only legit" shiny Mew.

As for Timid shiny IV 31 all Mew, that's apparently "legal". I say it's up to you to decide. Because this is how you would get a Timid IV 31 all shiny Mew in Emerald (the only place to get it):
1: RNG the ID/SID so that the Timid IV 31 all frame turns shiny
2: Get to Faraway Island using the Old Sea Map that was only given away in Japanese games
3: Save in front of Mew after playing hide-and-seek
4: Soft reset and wait approximately 5.6 years with the game running, and then press A within the correct 1/60th second, + 1/30th second ish if you have Synchronize.

That shiny Timid IV 31 all Mew is most likely the result of an emulator RNG, as an emulator allows you to enter a cheat code allowing you to get to Mew in the first place, and then manually advance the frames (60 frames advance per second). And then use some sort of editing software or something to transfer the Mew from the emulator to the real games. So, is that "legit"? It apparently depends on your definition of "legit".

For the other Mews, I wouldn't know for sure. It depends on the exact IVs.


I just got this off WT. I'm 99% sure it's legit, but I want to make sure, just in case.

It's just a Phione. All you need is a Manaphy and a 6IV Ditto to breed out 3~6 IV Phione endlessly. And it's not shiny either, so it's most likely just a randomly bred Phione.

I got one like this except the only differences are mine is modest and it had all the moves it was supposed to have. I don't know if mine is hacked or not but if I had to guess I'd say it is because the OT doesn't match the event serebii posted.

-snip-
The Eppie Mew is from an emulator and warp code, but is otherwise perfectly fine as long as this one hasn't been edited in some other way.

The Gio Mew is hacked, the hidden data doesn't match what should actually happen.

The other 3 Mew appear to be hacked, there's no way to obtain any of them through SRing/lazy RNGing, and the IVs are all too terrible for any RNGer to put actual effort into obtaining them (there's also the fact you just admitted one of them was edited...)
