    In theory, it looks okay. However, I do remember when Power Saves first came out there was a huge shinifying issue, and Miranda was an OT that came up a lot, so the Bouffalant may have been shinified (especially if it doesn't come from a Link Trade).

I put it in my PC and tried and still wouldn't let me. I transferred a bunch of Pokemon to my poke bank, and then transferred them to my X game and just found it one day. Please

    The bolded is already a massive hint that it is a hack, Gible/Gabite/Garchomp cannot be in a Friend Ball.

    Why can't it? I mean would that keep it from
    Being traded?

    Gible is a pokemon available into Safari Zone in Pokemon HG/SS, since you can't have it in other part of the game, you can't capture it using Friend Ball. In resume, this pokemon is edited, which mean it is hacked. Simple like this.

    Okay well it says it's from Sinnoh, not johto...

    Friend Ball, which is an apricorn ball is exclusive from HG/SS, you can not have it in any other game. Even if you attach into some pokemon and trade with P/D/Pl games, this ball will be converted automatically into a regular Pokeball, also, I haven't played HG/SS for a while but I am almost sure you can't attach any sort of pokeball generated from Apricorns and use it to capture a pokemon in other kind of 4th gen games anyway.

    Any other notes?: I got this guy from someone here on Serebii. I guess what threw me off was the fact that its name and OT is english, though its language tag is Korean. I heard the egg will always have the tag from the original country it was created in and I just wanted someone to confirm this. I know theres a method where you can get shiny pokemon by trading eggs and I just wanted to know if perhaps anyone thought this could be the case.

    Might be somewhat suspect due to being obtained from a passerby, but other than that there aren't any glaring red flags that I can see from that info. Everything appears legal about it, and the IVs and such are believable. I'm guessing the name is in English? I'll have to test it, but I'm pretty sure that's possible for a Japanese pokemon in 6th gen. (it was in previous generations, at least). (EDIT: Tested it, it's possible). Considering that chain fishing shinies is a thing, it's probably fine. It's legal, at least.

    Looks fine; same comments as your notes. The egg probably came from a Korean game but was hatched in an English game with TSV (link trade). In Korean games, English letters appear exactly the same as they would in an English game, not like the giant ones with spaces like you see in Japanese games sometimes.

    It looks fine; there's nothing extraordinary that would point to it being a hack besides that it came from the GTS.

    I acquired this Pokemon through GTS (traded away a Mienshao) and whilst I know it is possible that a shiny egg was hatched and evolved instantly it seems unusual.

    From the information you've given, it looks fine since it's relatively easy to evolve Misdreavus. It can be caught in a Moon Ball too, so that looks fine as well.

    Legal according to the provided information, but still, coming from an unknown source, I doubt this pokemon is legit.

    left my game cart with a friend over the weekend cos i got sick of hunting down a shiny 1 myself,

    levels were legit from d/p

    nature timid

    EV Values {estimated}
    atk: 255
    SPatk: 155
    spd: 100

    IV Values {estimated}
    hp: 14
    atk: 30
    def: 24
    SPatk: 22
    SPdef: 25
    spd: 4

    i know speed isnt good but yea

    reason why im asking is because i occasionally take it into wifi battles and dont want to get penalized for using a cheated/hacked pokemon
    should also add this was a while ago just after d/p came out

    It looks fine; just an EV trained shiny Luxray (probably just from a random shiny Shinx). Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you'll be punished in WiFi battles as long as it's legal (possible to obtain it legitimately), even if it is hacked.

    i likely wont ever evolve it and keep it as a magikarp. the shiny gyarados isnt much for me, got used to the silver/HG shiny too easy.

    Hacked! For future reference, there is no legal way to obtain a Hidden Ability pokemon with Apricorn Pokeballs, which means, every single thing with: Fast, Friend, Heavy, Level, Love, Lure and Moon Ball + Hidden Ability = HACKED. No question about it.
