Yeah, odds are, it's hacked or possibly cloned. I hear a few people Wonder Trade clones like that occasionally.

So someone traded you 4 pokemon, all with the same OT and ID number, but one of them had a French tag? Yeah, I can't think of any valid explanation for this aside from RNG, which isn't possible in gen 6 as far as I know, so I would say at last one of these is hacked. If at least one of them is hacked, and there is no way to know which one it is, it's really just best to assume that they are all hacked. Who works really hard on 3 pokemon then just hacks the last one? On the other hand, who hacks a bunch of pokemon then works really hard on just one? Usually a hacker just hacks them all.

As for Golem, there's nothing about it that seems off, so without anything indicating to the contrary, I would say it looks legal.

thank you for the reply, well that was surprising as hell. looks like i'll see what i can do with the golem. the 4 pkmn were a bit too good to be true. the player was giving them for free on WT, though the 5IV pkmn i put up for them were just extra spares i had. as for the other 4 i'll evolve them for the shiny data and maybe as IV donors. aside that shiny 6IV golem, i got 2-3 other shiny 6iv pkmn from WT in the past week, so some might be legit.

Actually, it is possible for it to have a different language tag, but only if the pokemon was traded from a French game as an egg. Does it say the egg was obtained from "a Link Trade"? If it says it was obtained from the daycare couple, then yeah, it's hacked. If it was traded and then hatched, then it's legal. This isn't really that odd, imo, considering it's shiny; thus was probably hatched by trading an egg to someone with a matching shiny value.

I'm no expert on gen 6 mechanics, but since they all have the same OT and TID that seemed like it ruled out the possibility of a SV trade. They were all hatched on a game with the same ID and OT, but one of them is French and the other 3 are (presumably) English.

yeah, the aromatisse was a hatched pkmn. the other 3 are english pkmn. i checked the pokemon's memories from anistar city:

the pichu and larvitar were with tonez when hatched, the amaura was a hatched egg and saw trainer Eric then it was traded to me later on thru tonez. spritzee (evolved to aromatisse) was hatched and saw trainer Bora 1st then was later sent to me thru tonez

sorry for the mix up i just realised those 4 shinies came from 3 different trainers 2 from tonez, amuara from eric #15130, aromatisse FRE OT bora #62416. looks like tonez got the 2 (amaura, spritzee) others from OT eric and bora.

the stats on amaura and aromatisse are correct, i didnt notice the 2 other OT for ice and fairy pkmn. corrected:

Try plugging the information into an IV calculator. As long as it doesn't have more than a couple of 31 IVs, it's fine.

This isn't really that odd, imo, considering it's shiny; thus was probably hatched by trading an egg to someone with a matching shiny value.

This is true. As long as the egg was originally FRE, it will retain the tag. Even if they all had the same OT and TID, and 3 are ENG and 1 is FRE, it's possible with SV hatching (from personal experience). The language tag is dependent on the game that it originated from; the name of the Pokemon is from the latest game that evolved/hatched it.

As for all of them, they all seem to have possible movesets, Poke balls, etc. Since they all came from a Link Trade and were hatched, they all appear to be legally bred and SV hatched and are fine.

As discussed before, the Cave of Origin Kyogre/Groudon can't be shiny, so Groudon is shinified. I also plugged Dragonite's info into a couple IV calculators and they end up showing impossible stats, so I believe it's hacked.

i used three different iv calculators, one said the speed was off, the other said speed special defence and special attack are off. Is it possible that it wasnt including the Pokerus possibilities? could someone recommend a calculator that count the possible pokerus buff so i can know for sure?

Use a reset bag or the EV reduction berries to remove all of the EVs then try again. In terms of IV calculators, I personally like this one
