    From what I can tell, they have to have been born or caught in Kalos to be usable online.

    1. The only hacked Pokemon that can make it through are those that are completely possible to obtain through normal gameplay, so if you get destroyed it's because you suck, not because they hacked.
    2. Only Pokemon caught or bred in Kalos can participate in online battles.

    This goes for both random matchup and ranking battle?

    Assuming they're not using a Contrary Serperior bred in Kalos, of course. It's a result of hacking which has been bred in Kalos but isn't allowed online.

    Does this apply to completely legit pokemon on VGC/"online competition" only, or free + ranked battles as well? If it's the latter, that pretty much defeats the purpose of transferring in the first place, other than for breeding purposes.

    I've seen a Latios in a Free Battle.

    It's still a completely legitimate Pokemon, it doesn't have an impossible ability or EV spreads, for example.

    It may only be for the VGC, I don't do any battling so I'm not sure. Regardless though, you're still only battling Pokemon within the realm of possibility.

    I've battled (and defeated :D) Latios, Cresselia (even a shiny one) and Heatran in ranking matches. But seems that if you are using things like a Thick Fat Tepig there's a " There is a problem with your participating Pokemon" msg.

    Contrary Snivy is still unreleased, making it illegal. While it can get through Bank despite being hacked, even the Kalos native ones are unusable online.

    The user was blaming potential losses on hacked Pokemon, all I'm saying is that only Pokemon with possible abilites, stats etc can be obtained, therefore any losses can be chalked up to them being bad. I'm not saying that any Pokemon that gets through is legitimate.

    Ohh additionally, Pokemon Bank is a hardware oriented app. Which means they are bounded to one 3DS/2DS System. Well that is what I do understand from what they are saying at the FAQ.

    Can someone enlightened me with this if possible.

    You could say it is attached to the 3/2ds and so can't be used on other devices nor other games IF I'm right not sure though.

    Hey, for those who say the unreleased ability Pokemon are hacked, shouldn't they be available now that you can switch between abilities using the Ability Capsule?

    No. Ability Capsule only changes a Pokemons 2 Regular abilities. For example, Clefable has Magic Guard and Cute Charm as regular, and HA is Unaware. If it had Magic Guard, it could switch to Cute Charm with the Ability Capsule. It can't switch to HA, and if it had its HA, it can't switch it back to regular with the Ability Capsule.

    No, you can only switch between regular abilities (or from hidden ability to regular ability).

    Quick Question:
    Now That PokeBank Happened for a few people, is it possible to get pentagon pokemon with gen v move tutor moves (e.g. Scizor w/Bug Bite)?
    I HOPE that it is breedable but i'm not sure.
  17. Excitable Boy

    Excitable Boy is a metaphor

    No, Bug Bite is not an Egg move for Scyther.
  18. NightShadow

    NightShadow Well-Known Member

    Oh, okay. Thanks for clearing that up (This means the Ability Capsule is pretty pointless)
  19. Redmudkip

    Redmudkip Battle Engineer

    I Know, but it doesn't pass like TM or move tutor in Crystal either, does it?
    Grr. That Makes Mad.
    That plus lack of superpower makes scizor unusable for battles in game for gen 6.
  20. Excitable Boy

    Excitable Boy is a metaphor

    No, it does not. Only level-up moves and Egg moves are passed via breeding in Gen VI.
