Hack-Check Thread (Read the OP for simple hack-checking)

    I'm actually going to say that it's fine. Pokebox Pokemon are rare as is, and shiny ones are even rarer. However, the OT/TID is (somewhat) known to be someone who obtained several shiny PBs legitimately, and hack checking it in previous generations with SIDs/files/etc. should verify that. Also it's a clone of one that's in Kevin24's collection and I trust him lol.

    Wouldn't that glitch the game?

    Anyway, I got another Pokemon to check out.

    Pokemon Species: Snivy
    Pokemon Gender: Male
    Nickname: Snivy (no nickname)
    OT: May
    IDno: 35551
    Shiny?: No
    Nature: Bold
    Characteristic: Alert to sounds
    Ability: Contrary
    Moves: Tackle (that's his only move, apparently)
    Level Caught at: Bred as an egg by the Day Care Helpers, so Level 1, I guess?
    Current Level: 1
    Stats: 11 HP, 5 Attack, 6 in Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def and Speed
    Location Caught: (link trade? time and space? distant land? fateful encounter? etc.) Day Care Helpers at Route 117
    Date Met: (if known) Apparently 6/21/2016
    Egg?: Yes
    Pokeball Caught In: Regular Pokeball.
    Ribbons: None (I don't think you can pass ribbons by breeding, right?)
    Blue Pentagon? (yes/no): Yes

    Oh this is good to know for me too! Thanks Fiss, much appreciated! c:

    Hm, I don't know. I've released hacks with no issue, but I guess you could WT it off again if you're worried about it. Tbh as long as yer not trading it on here it's up to you.

    Anyway, Snivy seems fine. According to IV calc he could be 5IV but it's too low level to tell.

    I also have a Shiny WISHMKR Jirachi I was told was "legit," but later I was told it can't be SHiny. Fissurous would know the final call on this though...?

    I do know that Wishmkr Jirachi can be shiny, but the legal combinations are very limited, I don't know the exact number, but I read somewhere that is just 9 legal combinations of shiny Jirachi. However, I have no clue if the combination that you are holding is one of the legal ones. :/
     
  7. Road

    Road Shiny Master

    After a little research, I've only been able to find that some of the legit natures are Docile, Bashful, Careful, Lonely, Serious and Jolly. I couldn't find a list of the exact ones that are in transit though. Doesn't give much more info as I'm not sure what the last 3 natures are.
     
  8. Fissurous

    Fissurous <>< Staff Member Moderator

    So I think that WISHMKR Jirachi isn't constrained by any nature combinations; only gen 3 and 4 Pokemon with perfect IV spreads have that. That being said, shiny WISHMKRs are extremely rare, and the 9 out there are pretty much the only ones where there's a common consensus that it's legit/legal. I believe the other natures are hasty, naughty, and timid, and this naughty/thrash about one has been cloned and passed on for a while now, so I think it's fine.

    Matches info for MYSTRY Mew so that's fine. According to IV calc, this Mew is flawless. Doesn't seem that unlikely since I guess you could RNG back then, and I think this is one of the natures that could get flawless. I'm unsure if it's supposed to say "fateful encounter" tho? I never figured this out for 3rd Gen events.

    tl;dr Looks fine to me!

    Also, you can't trade any Mew on the GTS, regardless of where you got it; GTS has restrictions of certain mythical/rare Pokemon like that.

    hi, when i see a lot of diancie on GTB i try to research and i want to correct it.

    may i ask

    - legit event pokemon can't be trade via GTB or wonder trade, correct?

    - hack event pokemon can't be trade with wi-fi internet FC, correct?

    - in wi-fi local can trade every pokemon?

    Thank for answer ><
     
  14. Fissurous

    Fissurous <>< Staff Member Moderator

    Assuming you mean Global Trading Station, almost every event Pokemon cannot be traded legitimately since they have special ribbons that would have to be removed. This is why a lot of events look perfectly fine until you see that it's missing its ribbon, a clear indication of editing.

    However, you can trade whatever you want in trades, regardless of whether it is hacked or not over both local and wifi/Internet/friend code. There aren't any restrictions on what you can trade, except for a couple of version exclusives mostly involving items. That being said, we don't permit knowingly trading hacks on this forum; I'm just saying that it's possible.

    Unfortunately I have no idea about wonder trade, since I've never used it, so hopefully someone else can answer that part. So to answer your questions: correct, incorrect, correct.

    So a Japanese girl wanted to trade with me on the PSS and so I did. We traded shinies for shinies, and I got a bunch of them. But after we traded I started worrying if maybe they were hacked, so I decided to check their summaries, and thought they looked kinda weird. They all had Faraway Place as their location, but I thought they also would say traveled through space and time or something like that. There are 5 of them so I'll just put them in a spoiler tag.

    They look kind of OK, except for the Faraway Place and blue pentagon combo. I really hope I haven't been scammed now :(

    Edit: I can't get the spoiler tag to work...

    Edit2: I just realised the blue pentagon means that the Pokémon was caught in Gen 6 games, and thus the Pokémon I received may as well have been caught in ORAS. Anyway, I still want to have them checked

    Seems you figured it out but yes, if you have XY and the Pokemon are caught in ORAS, they appear as coming form "Faraway Place."

    All of them look fine to me; seems like they're from chain fishing which is difficult but not impossible. (Man I wish I coulda traded with this girl, her OT is great and Shinies hahah.) Also don't worry about the dates; I live in Japan and have things tagged in the future since my DS is in Japanese time (and I have events that are dated one day after the event ended because of the same reason haha). Also the date/time can be changed and isn't a big deal.

    Got this in a Wi-Fi trade. It almost completely matches Singapore Maxsoft Arceus on the event dex, but the ribbon listed is the Wish Ribbon; mine has the Classic Ribbon. Is the event dex wrong or did someone actually hack in a Docile Arceus?

    Pretty sure it's a hack. The Manesh Arceus was distributed in multiple locations, and according to Bulbapedia does have a Classic Ribbon (but Serebii says Wishing Ribbon so I'm not really sure?!). More than that, this event is not listed as being able to be Shiny, and the only Shiny Arceus is the Japanese movie Arceus.
