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

    Hacked. I don't think there's a reliable way to get better than completely random IVs in HGSS in the wild, so getting a perfect IV Ditto that's also shiny has such incredibly low odds it's just not possible. There's no Shiny Charm in HGSS either, so just full odds. 1 in 8192 for shiny, and 1 in 1,073,741,824 for perfect IVs, so combined that's literally fewer than 1 in 8 trillion wild Ditto. Even if this person spent several lifetimes just hunting Ditto and doing nothing else he or she probably still wouldn't have found one like this. To illustrate just how ridiculous these odds are, HGSS sold about 12-13 million copies. If each and every one of those buyers got out and literally caught almost a million Ditto in their file, statistically only one of those players would actually get this one.

    And there are several indications that it's not from GSC, It lacks the GameBoy mark, it is in a Love Ball (while everything from Virtual Consoles comes in regular balls), pokémon from GSC virtual consoles can't go to ORAS, and the description also lists it's from the 'good old days' or something like that if it's from a virtual console game. If it were legit, it'd had to have come from HGSS.

    You may be right. Someone mentioned I should have the memory checker look at it in any Pokémon Center. It seemed to have 2 dialogues, first one saying it seemed to have a fond memory that it doesn't remember the details to, second one mentioning seeing me in a field of flowers (which one of the legendaries I caught in-game also says).

    Definitely hacked, Machamps.com is a well known hacker site that releases a lot of 6IV shinies and the like.

    Hacked. Gen 5 Zorua always appears at either level 10 (for Black and White) or level 25 (for BW2) or level 1 (for eggs). Level 36 encounter doesn't exist. And without the pentagon it's gen 5. The nature also doesn't match the BW2 nature, which is always Hasty. Plus, it's too low level to already know Agility or Imprison.
