    Whooooops, totally misread that lol. So it should be fine! The discrepancies in the ribbons makes it unclear though.

    I offered a decent Shellder on the GTS and got a 5IV shiny HA Alakazam in return, which is making me suspicious that it's hacked.

    Pokemon Species: Alakazam
    Pokemon Gender: Male
    Nickname: none
    OT: Frenchy
    IDno: 13087
    Shiny?: Yes
    EV's: 252 Sp Atk / 252 Speed / 4 Sp Def
    IV's: 31/??/31/31/31/31
    Nature: Timid
    Characteristic: Alert to Sounds
    Ability: Magic Guard
    Moves: Psyshock, Energy Ball, Psychic, Dazzling Gleam
    Level Caught at: hatched from an egg
    Current Level: 63
    Stats: 161/77/81/233/145/236
    Location Caught: Route 7
    Date Met: Jan 31 2014
    Egg?: yes
    Pokeball Caught In: Poke Ball
    Ribbons: Skillful Battler Ribbon
    Blue Pentagon? (yes/no): Yes
    Any other notes?: don't think so

    All in all, it seems possible to get, but jeez it's practically perfect. It's either hacked or someone got REALLY lucky while breeding - but then why would they give it away?

    Hm, IV calc forced me to do the spread at 248 SpA / 8 SpD / 252 Spe; said SpD needed more than just 4 EVs in it. (Also, says Atk is 29-30.)

    This isn't impossible, especially with TSV hatching and the ease of breeding flawless these days. Cloning is also possible so maybe they just wanted to give away a cool Pokemon? Nothing else strikes me as odd, but always be wary of GTS trades.

    Oh yeah, you know what, Sp Def looked sliiightly higher in Super Training now that I think of it, so that might be right. Thanks!
    It might be cloned... I dunno, I'll probably keep it around but I won't be battling with it. By the way, your signature made me laugh. :p

    Road Shiny Master

    Ah okay then that should be okay. Best not to trade it around, or just preface that yer not super sure when you do! Again it looks pretty fine to me but GTS Pokemon are always iffy anyway.
    (Heh, glad to hear! One of my favorite jokes hahah.)

    It looks fine; other than the odd Master Ball, shininess and IVs don't raise any red flags.
    Looks fine, just a normal Helioptile hatch.

    Can cresselia be legally in a love ball or any acorn ball for that matter?

    No. Cresselia doesn't appear in HGSS, which is the only way to get things in Apricorn Balls.

    Blue Pentagon? (yes/no): No
    Any other notes?: Flawless IV stats and when I went to the Move Relearner/Reminder, it did not list Extreme Speed despite the move being part of the event.

    I'm suspicious of its flawless stats and not knowing Extremespeed.
  13. Fissurous

    Fissurous <>< Staff Member Moderator

    It looks like a Genesect event that's been used before. Flawless IVs aren't too big of a problem since RNGing was huge in 5th gen.
    As for the extremespeed, I'm not sure but it may have been forgotten before it was transferred? I have no idea how move relearning works, but I think if it was removed in 5th gen then it wouldn't have access to it in 6th gen.

    Any other notes?: Flawless IV stats in five stats except speed. Also what got me worried is it's an English/North American Volcaion but has Japanese Ot . I traded a Yvetal code on the forums for it because I thought it was Japanese one
  15. Road

    Road Shiny Master

    There are plenty of 5IV Volcanion around so that should be fine. English name is also not an issue as you can set your game to any language and whatever you receive will be in that language. In fact, I have a Japanese Y set to English and received my Volcanion on it. (You can see proof and examples in my trade thread.) Overall this looks fine.

    Seems fine since its bred and has no strange ribbons or poke balls. Always be wary of random GTS trades though!

  19. Requiem Aeternam

    Requiem Aeternam Dance like an eggplant!

    It's hacked. All Hoopa come with a special ribbon that prevents them being traded over WT or the GTS which yours is lacking.
  20. I got a shiny event Genesect with an English name (the hasty nature, blaze kick, extreme speed one). Everything else about the event checks out just fine, and it even has the tag saying it came from Japan, but I was skeptical about the name being in English.
