    Charizard can't learn Powder Snow; it's a mistake on the event dex. Although if you really were insulted by his responses, send me a PM with screenshots of the PMs and hopefully I can deal with it.

    Don't worry, I can't blacklist you since it was just some confusion brought about by the event dex. I'll try and get it fixed.

    Description: He asked me to trade him a gengar and diancie code for something off of a list of pokemon he had. He said he wanted to make sure the codes worked first. (Guess I should have known here.). I sent them to him, he said they worked and asked what I wanted for them. I responded, but he hasn't been online in over a week and a half now.

    I can take actual screenshots if you'd like.

    I would wager he is just reaaaally busy with holidays/schools. It seems unlikely he would attempt to scam now and risk a blacklist, after so many years of trading here reliably. He is generally a good trader and irl stuff can happen. I can't say definitively, but yea. I wouldn't expect this out of him.

    From there, I strongly recommend trading first, and in general, avoid trading for codes. If you aren't after specific events and just want the event mons, I can cover him and send you some. I've got them (actually, I think he just had the same ones I did LOL). I'll shoot you a pm about it, hopefully we can resolve this in a manor that you aren't mad at him still and he learns to not be dumb and go on vacation while someone is waiting for mons from him. I'm not sure what would possess him to do that, but I know a lot of people are very busy with holidays and finals this month and it has personally delayed many of my trades.

    Sorry this happened to ya though. I've been on that end and its just a huge pain in the rear.

    Description: Me and this person made a deal for my legitimately caught shiny lugia for an event keldeo that he even CLONED. After the trade was done (probably cloning the lugia after the trade was done), he wanted to trade back. The lugia was ut and I did nothing wrong and then he says I'm a liar and deciever. I never said i didnt ev train it, but i didnt level it up. It only had like a few exp points. I don't think he should get banned, but someone should talk to him. Its not fair that he wants to a trade back, especially since he cloned his keldeo and I can't clone anything. He pretty much got something for free. Then he says I didn't catch it, but I told him I caught it before I started a new game, traded it to my fiances game, and transferred it to my new game. He doesnt listen. Idk what to do or if hes trying to scam me, but I'm done talking to him. I didn't delete my pms if any mod wants to read them. I can't prnt scrn or take a picture of our conversation because I'm on a phone. I think he's like a young kid, or atleast he acts like it. I don't know but if he wants to trade he needs to be mature.

    When making a trade, when you claim that the Pokemon is ut (untouched) that means that the Pokemon should be the same level as it was caught/distributed, without ANY experience points, not infected with pokerus, no changed move set and no ev points.

    When you ev train a Pokemon you are also giving it experience points
    When you throw a Pokemon into daycare it is also gaining experience points

    If it were me and I received your lugia expecting it to be untouched and it wasn't, I would request a trade back right away too. I am a cloner as well but because this pokemon has been touched I wouldn't even clone it. However you will never be 100% sure what or where that lugia has been or been through while it isn't in your possession, but at least you can keep this civil and get your Pokemon back, and if Keldeo is really that important to you, if needed to be, I can clone an extra one for you.

    Even though it is against the rules to trade and offer hacks, this thread is just used to report scammers. You can always report someones post by using the bottom left button of their post.

    **EDIT: When someone is trading a hack, it is technically scamming someone out of there legit/legal Pokemon 3:

    Description: He tried giving me a Shiny Crawdaunt that was in a Cherish Ball, but the game wouldn't allow it. I PM'd him about it and he first, tried to say Crawdaunt had an attack that made it impossible to trade away then tried to pass it off first as a Third Generation Event. I told him there was no Cherish Ball back then and he replied back saying it was an Unlisted Fourth Generation Event.

    When I told him I sent a PM to another member who's more knowledgeable about events for confirmation, he pretty much stopped PMing back.

    Username of Scammer: AzrealThe2nd
    In-Game Name: "Aziiko" in Alpha Sapphire, "Azreal A." on his 3DS
    Friend Code: 4141-6317-0212
    Description: AzrealThe2nd and I agreed to a trade of his "4IV" shiny nicknameable Zekrom for my 2011 shiny event Entei. After completing the trade, I went to check the IVs and memories as I typically do for all my trades, and the IV checker came back saying that every IV was perfect. It's fairly common knowledge that 6IV shiny legends (with a good nature too, I should add) caught in ORAS are essentially impossible, so it was clearly hacked. Additionally, he lied about the IVs, as I would never have traded for it in the first place had I known it had 6 flawless IVs. Immediately I sent a message to him saying that I wanted a trade-back as I knew it was hacked, and sent him a trade request in game. He denied that it was hacked and that it was "his" Zekrom (but did agree to trade back), denied my in-game trade request, and went offline, saying he'll "be there in a bit" to complete the trade-back. After I saw him go offline, I became very uncomfortable about doing a trade-back, as I feel very strongly that he cloned my Entei before wanting to trade-back. There was no reason to go offline and deny my trade request AFTER agreeing to do the trade-back, especially when considering he later (rudely) told me that he needed to get the trade-back done so he could complete many other trades at the time.

    I'm sure he will deny any of this to the mods, as he already has to me, and of course I don't have any video evidence of him cloning my Entei. The fact is though that he clearly hacked a Zekrom he caught, and he 100% lied to me about its details (even after I told him it was hacked, he still swears it is "legit"), hoping I wouldn't notice or wouldn't care, so at the very least the hacking and lying about it deserves this report to hopefully prevent others from being scammed. Below is our negotiations, but to any of the mods, please let me know if you need anything else from me, like to see the Zekrom itself, or any of the "rude" messages that followed later (I don't think they're relevant in determining whether he's a hacker/scammer, but I do have them saved if needed).

    Excuse me, but I was about to trade him for a shiny roselia, and I'm not so sure he's actually a scammer. If he were he wouldn't ask for HA Pokemon in exchange for a shiny. I feel like this all could have been a huge misunderstanding, as shiny legendaries in ORAS CAN BE 6IV, it just takes a huge amount of luck, trial and error, and patience. I feel more investigation into this matter is neccisary.
    Note: this is not meant to antagonize anyone, I just would like some more clarification on what actually happened.
