This thread is for posting anyone who's scammed you in the trade forums in terms of trading; say, traded you a crap Pokemon for a rare Pokemon and then disappeared without keeping their end of the deal. Or maybe, they just offered/requested a hacked pokemon!

Anyway, follow the template to post any user(s) who've scammed you to add them to the list and discuss the theft.

If possible, post a screenshot of the pm. You can take a screenshot by using the Prt Scrn button on your keyboard if you are on a Windows PC, and then open Paint, and copy and paste, and save as a .jpg or .png.
Or, you could simply forward the PM.
Or take a picture of the hacked pokemon with a camera.

Please no "Oh I'm so sorry that happened to you" posts; they will be considered spam, and infracted.

Members found guilty of scamming will be issued a 3 week ban, and will be forced to keep a "Scammed User in Trade Forum" note in their signature.

The Story (What Happened):

There is a thread (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?p=7701363) for #SPP-wifi. If you are wishing to report scammer from the WiFi Chat, please post there. ^^;

BoneBurry (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=112793) And admited it here (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showpost.php?p=9898394&postcount=158).

If you need to know if your pokemon is hacked, post here (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=358447) instead of in this thread! Report only scammers here. People that ask if a Pokemon is hacked in this thread will get an infraction for spamming.

That's great.

But I want to know how will you make it so scammers can't remove the "Scammed User in Trade Forum"? And also, if someone didn't know the Pokémon was hacked, but checked the IV's before trading and all that stuff, but that it ends up hacked, will they still get the "Scammed User in Trade Forum" in their siggy?

Maybe let them something like 1-2 days before adding the mention in the sig to let them the chance to trade back the Pokémon to the person that got "scammed"? And if they don't, then they get the mention. Or it could be a new user title that permanently replaces the usual one and adds an "(Scammed User in Trade Forum)" after their custom user title? It would be better than spoiling their signature... And people can always change an option to disable their signature.

Next time, check! Really, it's as simple as going onto Bulbapedia and checking how the event's details compare to the info that they have on there. As for Shinies, 10ANIV/10ANNIV aren't Shiny. Believe Me, I've fallen for that.
And the infractions were for Requesting/Offering Hacked/Forbidden Pokemon. And since you obviously got one, I'd say it's your own fault that you got the infractions. I got one today. I feel stupid about it but at least I've learnt.

thanks alot!

Sorry if that sounded rude but yeah. Basically Bulbapedia has all the information. When you have a trade planned, before you say 'Going on WiFi now' to thre trader, first go to Bulbapedia, search List of Nintendo event Pokemon in (Insert Year of Event Here) and find the Pokemon there. During the trade, Read the Summary and Compare. If the OT, ID Number, Area Met, How Encountered or Ball (If Ball Event instead of Item Event) is wrong, it's probably a hack. Don't take their word for it; even if they seem like the nicest of all people. You're gonna lose a Pokemon, get a hack as well as get Infractured :)

What the hell.

The shiny Celebi was one that I traded from someone on Smogon and I was told that 10 ANIV (the 10th Anniversary event Pokemon from the US) CAN be shiny, but the European 10ANNIV can't be. I gave you a full minute to check the Celebi before I initiated the trade so if you feel you've been scammed you're out of your mind. It's your own damn fault for not checking if you were satisfied with what you were getting.

Since you're making every effort to slander my name I'll do a trade back if you want.

[Edit]: We've traded back.

Hey im offering a Dec 2nd nintendo zone pikachu super rare the eternal clock was messed and this is a one of a kind....pm me with offer like pcnys, other nzones, other pc eevees, and new event meowth. also except gotta catch em all events and jeremys

This person is trying to fool people into believing that his Pikachu is rarer than others Nzone Pikachu's. This is not the case since the date on it depends on the date the DS was on when you receive the Event Pokémon. Not by the real date on real world.

Technically that would make it slightly rarer since most people picked up the Pikachu the day they got it.

You don't get the point.

Someone could have just changed their DS's date then go pick it up at a PokéMart.

They could have or they couldn't have; it doesn't make a difference. It was picked up and the eternal clock says Dec. 2nd. As a result, people might consider it rare or they won't. You're not going to offer on it so why complain?

Pingouin7
22nd December 2008, 5:02 PM
But it's still not rarer that any other Nzone Pikachu.

That's for the offerer to decide, my friend :)

22nd December 2008, 5:19 PM
I think it's more the choice of the buyer.

The offerer won't decide in the place of the buyer if their Pokémon is rarer or not.

u r right coz i think the shiny 10 aniv all r hacked

DA DA SWSH
23rd December 2008, 8:19 AM
To Jahuri: 10 aniv pokemon can be shiny because there are just like anyother pokemon in the game except to be an event and on that note any pokemon that has a card to come with it for example tru dragonite, japanese shaymin/reggias, alamos darkrai, and anyothers can NOT be shiny because they already have a set personal id which is what calculate if that pokemon is shiny......also nintedo/gamefreak did announce mystery mew can not be shiny but pokes such as 10aniv, wishmaker jirachi, and ageto celebis can be shiny...
i can confirm this because i hax check 10aniv shinys and they pass.

As for Pingouin7 its sad to say but you just dont know what your talking about....you go and try to find dec 2nd nzone pikachus and see how many you find A? its like a December 10th WCS u aint gonna find many seeing as a nzone is already rare. And it seems like most of the people agree its all a personal opinion.

but the fact is it is "RARER" maybe not more valueable but yes rarer so think before u act because your "acting out" are getting annoying to say the least....and seeying as you dont know much about events i will disrecomend u to anyone and everyone i trade with IF u say one more word.....
Thank you :)

I also recomend EnteiFireCracker, Ginji, Ranger as good event traders :P
pm me with more info on shiny 10aniv,10anniv,10jahre shinys if needed

Pingouin7
23rd December 2008, 4:23 PM
It has been recently discovered that 10 ANIV events can be shiny, but not the European equivalents.

Oh, and if you're using legal.exe to hack check, I suggest cloning the Pokémon before checking it, because legal.exe makes the Pokémon hacked. Put it in the checker, and if it comes out as non hacked, put it again. See what I mean?

Erik Destler
23rd December 2008, 4:28 PM
But that doesn't matter, because we have a strict policy on not trading shiny events =3=


But I want to know how will you make it so scammers can't remove the "Scammed User in Trade Forum"? And also, if someone didn't know the Pokémon was hacked, but checked the IV's before trading and all that stuff, but that it ends up hacked, will they still get the "Scammed User in Trade Forum" in their siggy?
I would leave a Usernote, and they'll get a signature strike every time they take it out. ^-^

You should also point out that using that will also flag your game save as being hacked. Of coarse that won't matter unless you have a very good hack-checker.

a dec 2 nzone isnt rare at all anyways.while most people already have one thats from either nov 15-27 which was when most people though the event lasted till there it has been there for more than a month now in which it surprises me.but u can just change the date of the ds so its not really rare unless u have just gone to nws recently

Inserting an AR and saving will flag the game.(And possibly just by turning the game on with an AR inserted, but I haven't got enogh info on that yet) The proper way of hack-checking doesn't involve putting anything inbetween the DS and the cartrage.

And can we keep this on the topic of scamming, not talking about if a Pokemon is hacked or not or anything else.
There is already a thread for that. (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=358447)

Pokemon Scammed: Lvl 100 shiny evd Rhyperior I caught and raised myself...
The Story (What Happened):
basically, id just traded 3 lvl 100 pokemon for 3 of his shinies. i thought he was a nice guy, as hed done nothing wrong.
I had been raising a shiny rhyhorn, which i caught in the safari park in sapphire, my first and only shiny pokemon ive caught. I raised it into a lvl 100 rhydon, and since i have no friends who have d/p i decided to trade through serebiis wifi.
so i traded the 3 pokemon, and he said he had some pokemon that needed trade evolving, so did I, and i traded my rhydon as he seemed to be in the same sit. Basically he turned off his ds when it evolved. i didnt get any time to look at it in its beautiful evd shiny rhyperior state.

so it was gone, there was nothing i could do.
hoping hed be on wifi again, i logged on and he was therenot realising it was me, he traded with me, and i saw it. And it was beautiful, i didnt get to see much of it, but i saw it. He turned off his ds again 20 secs through.

I know this is a stupid thing to ask, but if anyone has a lvl 100 evd shiny rhyperior and feel for me, could they drop me a message and we can sort something else? he was my very favourite pokemon...
thanks guys

Why did you trade your only shiny to a stranger anyways?

There's a safe glitch with the GTS to evolve trade-evo Pok&#233;mon.

You put your Rhydon in with Protector, asking for a Lv. 9 and under Shaymin. You put it in, then you do a random trade on the GTS. Take your Rhydon back and it will evolve. Your Pok&#233;mon cannot be taken because Shaymin cannot be traded. Also 4th gen. Pok&#233;mon cannot be traded if it is under the possible level.

Pokemon Scammed: Shiny Sneasel
The Story (What Happened): Fairly routine trade, my Shiny Sneasel for his Shiny Scizor. However he brought an extra Scizor with him and tried to play it off as shiny. Luckily I looked to see which one was shiny and which one wasn't, or else I wouldn't have known until after he'd gotten it. He insisted on me taking the non-shiny one, but I said no as we had agreed on shiny for shiny. He disconnected after he realized I knew what he was trying.

Why did you accept the Darkrai for it? If he wanted a trade-back then you two should have done a trade-back. You shouldn't have given him something else good for no reason. IMO it was half your fault for trading away both of them.

When you asked for genuine pokemon and say no hacks no clones and the person says they are all good. You just take their word for it , I will look in future.
Plus if my daughter has the ds and i set up the fc for trade, she doesnt understand what she is looking for at moment.
If someone could let me know the mods name and how i can contact them hopefully they will do something about it.
When you got to events and make the effort to trade genuine pokes for genuine and someone hacks its so annoying.
I would be grateful if someone can put me it touch with the mod.

Story: I didn't exactly get majorly scammed or anything but it's still annoying, basically we set up a trade, got everything ready and were just trying to organise a time to log on and trade at the same time and I randomly get a message from this guy saying "err. im gonna have to cancel this trade." out of no where. No reason, nothing. And i'd had a few good offers that I turned away because I gave my word I would trade with him. So don't pass up on other trade deals if you're dealing with this guy because he was painful to deal with and will just cancel at the last minute.

Just curious, and hoping someone here can help...Is it possible to have a legit, Eigakan Darkrai that is shiny? (Someone offered me one, but I passed on his offer due to thinking it wasn't legit.)

It is not. Wonder Card events are specifically programmed to prevent a shiny Pokemon from being generated.

Yeah I would like to know too because I got a shiny palkia in a trade and it was caught at spear pillar, but I heard that you can't get shiny events in diamond and pearl. Does this constitute?

I also have a shiny shaymin I got in a trade which was caught in the garden, would it be legit?

7th May 2009, 11:35 AM
well lets use celebi as a example
if all celebi's are gain by a event that doesnt involved acutally walking up to it(eg. naval rock pokemon, deoxys etc...), and everyone one says that they cant be shiny , then there would never be a shiny version of celebi in the game and it would be a lie.
i have a shiny celebi which is 100&#37; legit in everyway,so then pokemon from the events might be shiny

Palkia isn't an event. It can be a legit shiny. I'm not sure about event pokemon, though.

3rd gen events are still who knows what...

4th gen wonder cards can NOT be shiny, except for WCS milotic (always is), and ranger's manaphy egg (possibly).

4th gen events where you go TO the pokemon and CATCH it can be like any other encounter.

So a TRU/movie shaymin can NEVER be shiny, while one caught in flower paradise may be (given oaks letter has only been released for JP)

Well aren't you a mini-Mod lol.

To answer the "shiny" questions: Wondercard events cannot be shiny.

ALSO, I've seen a trend going on. 10 ANIV/ANNIV events CANNOT be shiny either. I was scammed on other forums before I knew this. If a MOD could add this detail to the topic, that would prevent people from obtaining such hacks.

Are there any specific things that should be looked for when doing a trade in order to spot a hack or clone? I was browsing the Scammed forum and see a few things, like ID#00000 (which of course is suspicious) and such. Is there maybe a list somewhere? I'm talking about things that are noticeable while actually in the trade room, not calculating IVs, etc. later on.

Nope. I've been obsessed with finding legit celebis, so I can tell you for a fact that it's not legit. The OT would be the event name first off, not a trainer name, something like 10ANIV or ageto--in japanese. also, the ID no. would have to match the event, like 00010 or 31121 and so forth.

15th May 2009, 9:32 PM
I don't have many events, but I think the OT is always 10ANNIV for the tenth anniversary collection, with an ID number of 00010. This is what mine looks like, anyway.

Is there also a way to check the legitimacy of "pseudo event" pokemon like Lugia and Ho-oh that were gotten via an event ticket, but still caught in the games themselves and so their OT/ID# are the players' instead of something predefined? Anything else to look at to check them?

Thanks.

i did some research and found out that it was a bad egg...However, i deleted the msgs because at the time i didnt know it was a "bad egg"

now i have a bad egg that just rots in my pc and could posssibly mess up my game and i dont even know who the culprit is

if possible could someone with two games who wouldnt mind erasing one take this bad egg from me so i dont have to look at it again

16th May 2009, 5:17 PM
Is its name actually 'Bad EGG', or is it just an egg named 'FEEBAS'? If it's just named 'FEEBAS', then you should be able to hatch it, then release the Pokémon without messing up your game...

Of coarse they can. All of the shiny Mew with English names that are on the GTS is proof enough that hacked Pokemon can be on the GTS. That and the fact that I've got a few Palkia that were caught at Lv100 on Route 202 from the GTS back when I used to use it. It's more like GTS = 90% hacked Pokemon.

If you're thinking that they cloned items, they could have just give a lvl 48 Gabite that you find in VR two rare candies

Even if the GTS removed every hacked Pok&#233;mon, shiny Mew with English name would still be accepted if they were caught on Faraway Island.

Not hacked by game standards =/= not hacked. Do you really think that if someone hacked the Old See Map that they would be moral enough to SR for a shiny one? And if they did, do you think that they would offer it for something like a Lv100 Magikarp? The only sad thing is that most of the little kids that get them will think that they are real.
That and the half dozon Palkia that I got from the GTS that were caught at Lv100 on Route 202 is enough reason not to trust the GTS.

You see, not every people that hack are immoral. >_>
I know some people that did warp to Faraway Island to SR for a shiny Mew.
And also, you can clone in Emerald, so they can just clone it and offer it up on the GTS for random stuff.

Also, the point of playing Pokémon, for kids, isn't to get legit Pokémon, that they mostly don't care, as long as they obtain something they like, they would most likely don't care wheter it's hacked or not and will be happy to have one.

The only problem with that is that certon hacked Pokemon can damage the save file. (Not corrupt it though) I'm sure that no-one wants to damage something that they paid money for.

There was a DOEL deoxys issued in the Netherlands that started at level 70, but it was given out in 2006.

I asked the person and he said he changed the date of his DS so he could transfer more through Pal Park in one day. He's also from the Netherlands, so it all seems legit if the date thing is true. According to Bulbapedia, the DOEL Deoxys will say Hoenn/Kanto.

manger using NorthernLight.purplesurge.com Sun May 24 00:35:58 2009
End of WHOWAS

The story is that he was seeking IV trading, he offered his adamant elekid with 31 attack IVs and 25 speed, rest of the stats over 18+. When trading was complete, I doubled checked the elekid's IV in IV battle and ended up as:

Elekid - #239 (Adamant
HP: 28
Att: 31
Def: 0
SpA: 21
SpD: 5
Speed: 20

Then I resume talking to him after checking to get his attention, he responded with "hey" then I informed him about the elekid. He went silent after multiple of attempts to get him to respond for the promised stats of elekid or to return the riolu. Then he left the channel. :(

The riolu isn't a loss since I bred a box full of riolus to get good IVs to use at the VGC/WCS tournament and some were pretty good. But I dislike faulty traders :( I wish there is a dedicated Wifi trade room for registered IRC and forum users only.

I'll take it. But I need to finish this batle first.

are u ready to trade

Yes...I need to add your f.c., but I will be on wi fi right after that.

im coming on now is it the platinum 1

Sorry...Whoever traded you that traded you a hack. You can't catch Nidoking, or any of it's evolutions at Valor Lakefront. I don't want it.


This was copied and pasted straight out of my messages, and no, he never responded back saying sorry or anything to acknowledge he himself got scammed, so I am thinking he did not get the Nidoking from someone else.

Pokemon Scammed: Two randoms holding rare berries
The Story (What Happened): We agreed that I would trade him the Larvitar obtained from Duking in Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness in exchange for four random Pokemon holding Starf, Enigma, Micle, and Jaboca berries. I traded the Larvitar and received the Starf and Enigma, and then he terminated the trade, claiming that the Larvitar had been touched with experience. He had not instructed me to obtain an untouched Pokemon beforehand, so I had no idea that was his desire. He refuses to complete the trade.

Pokemon Scammed: None, but almost scammed off a Gamestp Deoxys.
The Story (What Happened):I posted on the Wi Fi chat to trade a Gamestp Deoxys for a SPACE C Deoxys. We set up a trade, but almost all of his team are hacks! Here is what hacks he had:

Lucario (English), Cherish Ball, OT: Mustafa (English), Location: Pok&#233;mon Event.
Jirachi (English), Cherish Ball, OT: Tanabata (Japanese), Location: Pok&#233;mon Fan Club.
Eevee (English), Cherish Ball, OT: (I don't remember it), Location: Pok&#233;mon Center.

I've got logs of the conversation:

Pokemon Scammed: Eigakan Darkrai
The Story (What Happened): I was trading him an Eigakan Darkrai for a SPACE C Deoxys, but his Deoxys is hacked, because the space between SPACE and C is bigger (As if there were two spaces.) When you Pok&#233;sav a Pok&#233;mon, if you input a space, it uses the Japanese format for spaces, and it's bigger, that's why it is hacked.

I don't know if he'll be willing to trade Darkrai back to me, since I can't contact him right now, but if he doesn't wants to trade back, I'll tell here.

lol, what a great story, so you claim to have been lucky enough to find this persons absol on the GTS.

First thing wrong with that(if it is his, which i'm 100&#37; sure it is), why would someone scam another person out of a shiny absol, then chuck it on the GTS for a bidoof.

Answer : They wouldn't, it makes no sense, 99% of scammers are scammers for personal gain.

I think the reason your posting here saying that is because you and DevilPunk are one in the same.

I know i shouldn't trade him but i didn't know if mew could be obtained at level 3 since it's the first time i'm playing a pokemon game. A friend of mine told me it was hacked because the lowest level you can get mew at is level 5 so I pm'd him saying it was a hack, he said he got the mew from the esmerald version of a friend. I pm'd him back saying i wanted my sneasel back but he hasn't answer for 2 days.

Pokemon Scammed: Lapras w/ Pokerus (and a Custap Berry I gave along with it to be nice)

The Story: He was offering a Shaymin for any pokemon with a Pokerus (I thought he cloned since he was offering a Shaymin). Since I only infect good ones, I offered a Lapras with the Pokerus. Even though he already had a pokerus pokemon he accepted the offer. I even threw in a Custap Berry to be nice. When I first found out it was hacked, I assumed he had got it from someone else and didn't know. Then I found him offering a Celebii or a shaymin for something else.

could you hack check this: my entei has 2 spaces between 10 and ANIV instead of the usual 1 space btween 10 and ANIV. is this a hack? everything else looks fine, may 14, 2007 is it's date.

Pokemon don't disapeer.

Actualy if someone's Wi-Fi goes out in the midle of a trade then it's possible for each person to end up with the same Pokemon and have the other one disapear. It happened to me once and we both ended up with the same 10 ANIV Latios and the other Pokemon was gone. This happens because it saves on one game a split-second before the other. And it the signal goes out before the 2nd game has saves then the Pokemon gets "cloned".

After more research, i do find confirmation it is hacked, which I did post in the "Is this hacked" thread on serebii. (I can if needed post a screen shot of this.) Stated it was met at level 19 and near perfect IVs as well. I message him through serebii asking how it was legit with the info I found off of it, and all his response was "IDK bro i just got it 3 days ago myself I was trying to figure that out myself".

A friend of mine found it for me and I wasn't in Serebii that period!!!
Why should I know that it was hacked!!!!
Also I release it right after that!!!
And why should I wan't to trouble myself!!!

I guess he forgot to check it. Idk. We make mistakes. I mean, no one got scammed here, so get over it. Since he got it from a friend, he might have assumed it was legit. But idk, I don't know the whole story of how he got it or whatever. But I wouldn't be dumb enough to offer like that, so there has to be a mistake somewhere.
