    Hm, this one is tricky. It's possible to get flawless Shinies by breeding so that part's not concerning. No issues with the Dream Ball or moveset, and if it has memories it should be fine. The only thing is the date (that's before XY even came out lol), though I guess you can change the date on your DS to manipulate that?

    I would personally not trust it, but you may need a second opinion.

    It sounds weird but I like to hatch special pokemon on certain calendar days like lunar and solar ecplipses. If you go backwards or forewards enough to find these dates they can end up being before the game came out.


    as for the pokemon in question I would have to get on pokemon showdown to see what those stats look like in a simulator, but even if it's flawless like you said that's still possible on a shiny because of destiny knot breeding and also there is TSV hatching now which is kind of the new version of RNG abuse (or as close as we get to it now).

    Hm, good point, but that then brings in the question of why that date? The only thing Google brought up was a blizzard that happened around then in North America, and Idk why that would be special. I guess it could be a birthday or some personally special date, but it still seems odd to me.

    Oh of course, I know about that stuff. So I guess the consensus is its fine.

    Hatched Shiny isn't much concern for alarm. Can't calculate IVs because it says the ATK is too low, but regardless, as we've said above, it's not an issue. At a glance I see no issues, but always be wary of WT Shinies.

    Assuming these stats are from Origin form, with EVs in HP/Atk.

    Soaring in the Sky legends are not Shiny locked, so it is possible. 6IV on a legend, plus Shininess, is really unlikely though. WT as well. I wouldn't trust it.

    I had a general question about event pokemon in generation IV

    I saw someone asking for a shiny poke fest mew but I thought only the Old Sea Map Mew was the only legit shiny mew.

    can gen IV events be SR'ed to get a shiny or are the events all shiny locked like current events?

    only mew that can be shiny is from japanese faraway island in gen 3. if any other mew is shiny it is hacked
  12. Yknot

    Yknot Дми́трий Дми́триевич

    Thanks for the response! That answers my question about themew :)

    So does that mean on older events (and newer ones too) if the event is not guaranteed shiny then it is shiny locked? (meaning you can't SR an old event from mystery gift to be shiny, like gen III, IV, or V)

    I know that the movie arceus had a chance to be shiny but it depended on which code you got then it was guranteed you didn't have to SR for it to be shiny.
  13. Road

    Road Shiny Master

    I think it varies. I've seen a lot of people trading around Shiny versions of the Kyushu Train events since apparently they were set with the possibility to be Shiny. However, most recent events like Volcanion and Zygarde (a code and WiFi event respectively) are locked. It seems to be on a case-by-case status.
  14. Yknot

    Yknot Дми́трий Дми́триевич

    dang that makes it harder to tell which older events are legit or not. As far as I can tell I haven't seen any gen VI event that can be SRéd to be shiny. It either is shiny or it's not.

    Are Kyushu Train events a gen V thing?
  15. Kevin24

    Kevin24 Event Collector

    kyushu events are from gen 5 yes.

    Sorry for posting again so soon. I got a shiny darmanitan over wt and it all looks fine but im not good at hack checking and the master ball is raising red flags.

    Requiem Aeternam Dance like an eggplant!

    It looks fine even though the Master Ball is rather odd, but you can get multiple of them from Secret Base Pals so maybe this person had some to spare. Given that it has Flare Blitz they could have been worried about it KOing itself so used the Master Ball as a precaution. It just looks like a Shiny someone caught in ORAS while DexNav chaining but didn't have the stats or nature they were after so they put it on WT.

    This looks like it's meant to mimic the Old Sea Chart Mew. The ID seems very unlikely though. Otherwise it doesn't match up with any other event of the time.

    My gut instinct says hack, since it's also Shiny and from a long time ago. An event like that wouldn't just be spinning around the GTS.

    If you post the SID I can help you with this better.
    Perfectly legal, looks to be caught on a mirage island.
