since he was a roaming pkmn in sinnoh, it makes sense for it to be in a masterball.


looks legit, the rare candy and master ball might be hacked items, but the pokemon looks legit on its own.

lolz at you daru, the birds are roaming legends in plat.

@SkittyOnWailord: Is getting a Newmoon Darkrai and Flower Paradise Shaymin using the tweaking glitch would be considered unlegit?

Those are more in the gray area. Since you didn't hack to get them, they aren't hacked. But since they can't exist within normal means then they aren't legit either. For those it's mostly up to you what they are. But you would still get an infraction if you offered them on these forums since you can't tell if they were tweaked for or just hacked for.


As you can see, I made a point that although it is POSSIBLE for a DW starter to be captured in a Master Ball, it is very unlikely that it would occur, and that the odds of it just being a hack outweighed the odds of someone using a Master Ball on it.

You responded by telling me the point I had just countered.

Please proceed to the nearest ticket booth to accept your prize.

Well personally I've decided that when I finally have time to SR for my DW Arceus then I'm going to catch it in a Master Ball just for the lulz. Take that info as you want.

Definitely hacked because rayquaza can't be caught in Sinnoh. EDIT: NINJAS ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD!!!

Oh. But anyway, the chances of having a shiny with Benificial nature are very slim. It is almost positively hacked.

Nothing seems wrong with it in particular. It looks legit.

Hi!, got this one, already asked at RNG thread if it was possible but i still have my doubts

If you trade an egg over Wifi connection, the location will change to Wifi connection. I'm pretty sure that also applies with TRU eggs, so... .-.

Somebody after this said that the location would not change to Sinnoh. Personally I don't see why it would since something caught on R/S/E still says Hoenn after you get it to Gen V.

did you check serebii's index for each of the 4 pokemon to compare their max stats?

if your pokemon weren't natured and EV'd for max speed and their swampert was they would be faster.

I'm not sure about 5th gen, but last gen even battling a badly hacked Pokemon can sometimes have an effect on your save file and could be considered "damage". Though most people didn't even notice what was changed.

The only thing I've noticed in Gen 4 was the description on the Classic Ribbon and on the Premier Ribbon getting wiped off.
I'm starting to believe it has nothing to do with the Pokémon, but rather the save file of the other game, since none of the Pokémon on there were badly hacked.

In Gen 5, no matter what, the Classic and Premier Ribbons have the correct text on them.

Or he may have thought that there could be some glitch that exists that might make it say this. It's obvious to us, but that's only because we read up on stuff and asked questions about things before. I don't think we could say we would be 100% sure it was hacked if we hadn't.

May I ask what you're talking about?
I'm actually interested....

Here you go. Some quotes of mine from an old thread.


Yay, I finaly get to explain this. The Clasic Ribbon's text is suposed to say "A Ribbon that proclaims love for Pokemon". If you trade (or battle?) with someone that has a badly hacked Pokemon in there game, then the text for all of the Clasic Ribbon's in your game will change to "A commemorative Ribbon obtained at a mystery location". It's pretty much a small obvious flag to tell if someone has a hacked Pokemon in there game. I've done allot of research on this over the last few months, and I've found that there are only two ways to get it back to normal.
1) Trade with someone that has the correct text. (This will probably spread the problem to the other persons game though).
2) Pick up an event Pokemon with a Clasic Ribbon from the Pokemart. (As seen in my video here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJKaX5ufEks))
I'm guessing that this happens because of some glitch with using an AR that resets the ribbons text to default. (A ribbon without text has the default "A commemorative Ribbon obtained at a mystery location" text. Pretty much a placeholder untill the game knows what is suposed to be writen there)

So yes, if your Clasic Ribbon says "A commemorative Ribbon obtained at a mystery location" then you have either battled or traded for a badly hacked Pokemon.


Well most of what I know was already posted here. I've learned about it from personal experiance that me and some of my close friends have had. And we've also noticed that when a Ribbon changes text then it changes the text for all Pokemon with a Clasic Ribbon in your game.

We first noticed it when we picked up the TRU Darkrai from TRU and it had the right text. We traded within our group for a few weeks (even trading that and other legit Japanese events with a Clasic Ribbon). Then I traded someone for a hacked Riolu (talked about further down) and I noticed that the Ribbon's text was changed. And after trading with my friends next week we noticed that the Ribbon's text had changed on all of our games. It wasn't untill I picked up an old Manaphy event (in the video in my post) that I noticed that the Ribbon went back to normal. I traded the Manaphy to one of my friends and thier Ribbon went back to normal. But when he traded the Manaphy to another friend then both games had the wrong text again. After trading it back and forth a few times we noticed that you don't even have to trade a Pokemon for the Ribbon to change. Even starting a trade and then exiting without trading can change it.
We finaly got it fixed on mine and one other friend's game but the other one wouldn't change back. So we traded most of the good Pokemon out of it and then he restarted it. (Which fixed the problem)

A few weeks later one of my friends was trading on the GTS and noticed the the Ribbon changed after getting a Fr/Lg shiny Suicune (assumingly hacked). And we fixed the Ribbon with the way that I just explained.

A few weeks later another one of my friends traded for a hacked shiny Rayquaza via local Wi-Fi. (This Rayquaza was strange though, whenever you looked at the summery then the screen would get red stripes across it) And that game couldn't get the text to change back for some reason. So he traded all of his good Pokemon over and then restarted it. (which fixed it)

And the last part of the story: My Ribbon was normal. I then decided to battle someone on this forum. They sent out an English Jirachi in a Charish Ball. (He later admited to hacking it) But after the battle I noticed that the Ribbon had changed again. So that proved that even battling serton hacked Pokemon was bad.

Could be, but the only thin that raises a flag for me is that it was only ever able to be caught in platinum at level 50, so I don't see why someone would catch it in a masterball.

Since Ditto can be caught at the Desert Underpass in Emerald around that level, it looks legit. The long travel through time part just means that it is from Gen 3 (was sent "through time" once to Pal Park, then again to B/W).

I've had it happen by trading with another save file that had no badly hacked Pokémon on it.

Well as I said, it spreads. That other save file probably battled or traded with someone else that had one. In other words it can go like this.
Game 1 with hacked Pokemon battles/trades with legit game 2. Legit game 2 battles/trades with legit game 3. Now legit game 3 has the problem too.

[QUOTE]

MMing is just a way to increase the odds of getting a shiny from breeding. As was said, if the shiny has a beneficial nature and was hatched from an egg, it was probably MM'd with an everstone and could be perfectly legit. For example, I have a Jolly Beldum and a Modest Treecko that I hatched with an everstone, both are perfectly legit.

If you obtained it yourself, then why are you asking if it's hacked?
They were just explaining the ribbon thing a few posts ago. And for the last time, people, date means absolutely nothing, as it is based on the DS clock. Unless it's like 300 BC or something, it doesn't matter. -__-

The date of obtaining will show whatever date your ds is set to, so I don't see that as being a problem.

As for the ribbon, it says special holiday ribbon in my HeartGold (I haven't transferred it to my Black copy yet). The description could change once tranferred over, I wouldn't be able to confirm that without transferring my Mew.

EDIT: I can now confirm that the ribbon description does not change at all. (I hadn't read the entire post about ribbons before posting) But it does explain it all. But just like cannibaleyes says above, if you received it yourself without any hacking, that says it all.

Well, I just did this and the video played fine even though everyone in this thread was convinced that Celebi (and me) was hacked. So I'll have to conclude this doesn't work...

Well as I said, it spreads. That other save file probably battled or traded with someone else that had one. In other words it can go like this.
Game 1 with hacked Pokemon battles/trades with legit game 2. Legit game 2 battles/trades with legit game 3. Now legit game 3 has the problem too.

I can confirm without a doubt that that wasn't the case.

Shinx seems legit, but the ball is definitely not, as the only place you can get a Safari Ball in Sinnoh is in Great Marsh, which holds no wild Shinx, and definitely not a level 4 one.

Seems fine.

The non-caps thing could be because it was nicknamed that way.

Thank you =]
Are there any other balls that look like that one? Because as far as I know its a safari ball, but then again, what do i know =P
The person said it was not nicknamed tho.. So if I evolve it now its gnna be called Eevee? =/

Shine
17th May 2011, 11:57 AM
If it wasn't nicknamed, it would be a hack, as a Pokemon with full caps name from 4th Gen games keeps the full caps in B/W until it evolves, in other words transferring it won't change the caps.
Unless the previous owner got the Eevee from someone else he doesn't know (through the GTS for example) which makes it still possible to be a nickname.

Not sure what will happen when evolved though, B/W may think it's not a nickname due to the lowercase, thus changing the name upon evolution. Why don't you try it yourself? You don't need to save, just do it to look at if the name changes or not.




Regarding the Shinx, a Nest Ball might look similar to a Safari Ball. What is the animation for the ball when you send it out to battle?

Hmm it has a green center that expands a bit, with some green circles vaguely around it, maybe looks a bit like vines or leaves? Cant get a better description =P

And thank god it evolves with a proper name! Thank you for suggesting I try that out =P So, guess i'll have to send over a nicknamed pokemon to my black and white to see if B/W does see that as its normal name rather than a nickname.. If that one keeps the nickname after it evolves, it'll mean the eevee is a hack, right?

hmm, probably it's just B/W sees it as its normal name due to the lowercase.

In fact, I think it does that in 4th Gen games too, I vaguely remember once I nicknamed my recently captured Golbat in 4th Gen as GOLBAT (remember in 4th Gen the names are all caps) because I decided not to nickname it anything fancy and the name changes into CROBAT upon evolution.

No, the nickname flag is retained when Transfered, regardless of the nickname.

Mat is an RNG researcher over at smogon. He also posts here sometimes in the RNG thread (see Bond697). His Pokemon are all obtained by manipulating the RNG which means they are "legal" for all forms of play including official Nintendo tournaments. They are not hacked. Btw you should note that his Pokemon are available for free and anyone trading them to you probably obtained them for free.

...Mat (Bond697) got them through Forest Hacking, meaning putting stuff directly into the Entree Forest without ever passing through DW, so they're actually NOT legit, but legal.

Bond697
19th May 2011, 1:04 AM
ok, let's clear a few things up. this is getting ridiculous.




It's hacked. You can't get a shiny mew from that event.(referring to MYSTRY)

this isn't necessarily true. we recently figured out the generation method for MYSTRY and there doesn't seem to be a shiny check. it is possible, though, that nintendo just didn't generate any shiny ones, since these pokes were not dynamic and they were given away via pre-filled fire red carts. it's interesting, the restricted ones are generated first and then the unrestricted are generated based off of the restricted ones in a weird way.


...Mat (Bond697) got them through Forest Hacking, meaning putting stuff directly into the Entree Forest without ever passing through DW, so they're actually NOT legit, but legal. He said it himself a while back. The fact is, most forum would consider forest hacking and hacked Wondercard as legit, like in Smogon and such, so some people considered them as legit. .-.

wrong. when pokestock came out with its high link editor, i edited a few dw pokes that seemed popular into my high link so that competitive battlers could use them for testing via wifi. no one ever bothered to listen to me so no one realizes that. the hacked in ones weren't really meant to be traded around in the first place, though i just stopped saying so after i got ignored over it for awhile.

i've been using the dream world since it was first available in japan and i have 50 or so pokes in my high link from there. the only things that i didn't obtain via dw/passwords are: bulbasaur, charmander, umbreon, espeon, vaporeon, flareon, glaceon, and leafeon. and even then, these were edited/hacked in and caught normally, not made. i suppose it's the same thing as editing in wondercards from gen4, though with less data.



Mat is an RNG researcher over at smogon. He also posts here sometimes in the RNG thread (see Bond697). His Pokemon are all obtained by manipulating the RNG which means they are "legal" for all forms of play including official Nintendo tournaments. They are not hacked. Btw you should note that his Pokemon are available for free and anyone trading them to you probably obtained them for free.

very close. i would say i've rng-ed roughly around 1000 pokes and those 8 from before are the only ones even remotely "hacked". and yes, i give everything away free for people to enjoy.



Exactly. It's kind of like someone hacking their way to the Hall of Origin Arceus in D/P/Pt and then catching it. Different people and different forums will have different opinions on if that makes them legit or not.

oddly enough, i have a few of these. you wouldn't believe what kind of crazy arguing shiny, perfect rng-ed arceus causes. :)



So its a matter of opinion if they're hacks or not?

no, it's not up to opinion. not for 99.99% of them anyway. if you want to call the eeveelutions+1st gen starters legal but not legit or i guess hacked since they were edited in then go for it. the rest are fine, though. well, and the shiny arceus too. i guess some would also have an issue with that one.

So what do you think regarding that Eevee?
It depends.
Is the Eevee English at all?
It might have been another language Eevee nicknamed "Eevee"

If it indeed is English, then if it evolves and keeps Eevee as it's name, it's legal.


That was only true until Generation V. A Korean player could easily have Pal Parked that, Poke Transfered it, and then traded it over the GTS. In other words, this could easily not be a hack.
Could Korean Gen 4 versions use Pal-Park with English/French/Italian/Spanish/German/Japanese Gen 3 cart?


I got all this information on Gen V
I'm not sure if this specific Mew is supposed to have Fateful Encounter.
But every Mew I've seen so far have Fateful Encounter.


It comes back evolved, but has the name Shelmet. .-. What the crap?
What if it was another language Shelmet nicknamed "Shelmet"?

This was more helpful than you.

"I'm fairly certain it's hacked.

You cannot fight pokemon in Entree Forest. Therefor, a Premier Ball could not have caught the Arceus [Catch Rate 3]. You would have used the free Dream Ball anyway.

Probobly a hack."

Now, you can bold text and ***** as much as you want but that doesn't answer my question about the Arceus I posted up for a hack check.

The fact that it is caught in a Premier Ball is suspicious. Can you explain this with out going off on and repeating stuff that is not helpful or even close to answering my original question.

If it's hacked, its hacked. If its an event DW pokemon that is given out in a Premier Ball. Fine. But as far as I am aware and the guy in my link above is aware, you can't catch Arceus in anything other than a free DW Pokeball. I want to know all the details about one of your Pokemon I have in my box before I offer them to other people and get black listed because it turns out to be hacked by you.

Then there is this reply:

http://www.serebiiforums.com/showpost.php?p=12288713&postcount=840


"Please don't talk about something if you don't know what you're talking about.
You can catch Dream World Pokémon in any sort of Pokéball.
Also, the Arceus would have had to have been obtained between November 5th and January 31st. The Dream World wasn't closed then."

So please, clear this one up. I'm asking nicely for a little explanation on YOUR POKEMON.

Not to hard. Is it?

that guy is also(unsurprisingly) completely wrong. all balls are usable in the high link and all balls function as master balls in the high link. what's funny is that you quote the post of someone who doesn't at all know what they're talking about and then act like it's gospel. a quick read of the high link/entralink section of the site you're on would have answered your own question/s. using the resources available to you on this very site instead of making bad accusations of hacking is probably a good idea.

I also edited my post, a few moments later, adding another quote.

So no, not funny really? I don't use DW.

I'm making NO accusations, mearly asking you questions you refuse to answer.

So re-read my post, stop being a dick and answer my damn question as I have asked politely. You're being rude for no reason other than laziness and because you feel you have the right too.

Please, clear this up for me, the forum and the sake of us carrying on this silly and pointless argument you started, once and for all.

Don't link me to past posts, a brief description of the Pokemon I have requested a check on is all I ask. A couple of sentences will prevent questions from me or anyone in the future. You're in essence spamming by replying but refusing to answer me.

Catch rate 3 doesn't necessarily means you need to use a Master Ball/Dream Ball.


Also, you don't have to use the Dream Ball, you can use any Ball.
You actually open your bag in the Forest, you don't immediately throw the Dream Ball.

So it is possible to capture Arceus with a Premier Ball, and thus it is possible to be legit.
But since we have the original owner in here, let's see his own answer....


EDIT : oh, he already answered....in one of his post he linked above :p

If that Mew is Japanese, it may be legit.

In my heart, the master ball SCREAMS hack. But stats seem legit, and moves are legit. Only problem is the fact that it says Dark Cave, when it probably should say faraway place or Johto (forgive me, I never Poketransfered). At worst, I'd say he hacked the MB.

The Jirachi seems fine, as it can be shiny, but it is unlikely. There's no way to get a shiny Celebi, however, so it's a hack. I'd be wary of the Jirachi.

Thats false you can get a shiny celebi. The only celebi that can be shiny is the Ageto celebi which was the Japanese Pokemon Coliseum pre-order disc pokemon. Just like the jirachi its very hard to get one. Also both of those look legit.

It doesn't necessarily mean the pokemon was hacked because of a master ball. I used to use AR on my 4th gen games (I was not hacking pokemon, by the way) and I had a code to have an unlimited number of master balls. I'm not sure if there is such a code on Black & White, I never checked, but it is a possibility.

Not everyone speaks chat talk. Where I come from, an = sign means 'equal'. != means absolutely nothing, except maybe a typo. And yes I have been using internet for over 10 years, I text message, and I bbm, so I am not ignorant. This is why chat speak is not recommended.

Not everyone speaks chat talk. Where I come from, an = sign means 'equal'. != means absolutely nothing, except maybe a typo. And yes I have been using internet for over 10 years, I text message, and I bbm, so I am not ignorant. This is why chat speak is not recommended.

Either you're not paying attention or you don't know that "!=" means not equal. Pingouin7 was saying a master ball does not mean a Pokemon is hacked.

What Tinkerbelle said.
It's not exactly "chat speak." != is used for not equal in a many programming languages and math applications.
Anyways, I was just pointing out Pingouin7 agreed with what you said.

Sorry in advance for the long post. I whittled down a long list of legendaries by checking against my own, tossing out the ones with bad dates. Note: these were all obtained using the HeartGold GTS:

First, some questions:
- Is it possible for an Articuno to be caught from a Cherish ball?
- Can "Distant Land" be a catch location?
- If a pokemon is transferred across multiple carts or generations, is the catch level preserved? (Example: "Arrived from Hoenn at Lv. 100" doesn't say what level it was caught at)

I can't get the stats right now, but what I CAN say is that it is a shiny Cresselia from Sinnoh, at level 90. I did trade for a Shiny Fraxure which I put on the GTS for a Cresselia. Next day, this arrived. Anyway, tell me what you think, based on what little I just gave you, and I'll post again with the stats later.

1. No legitimate way. I've heard you can hack to give yourself cherish balls in 4th gen, but there is no way to legitimately get them, and according to the event database, Articuno was not given out in any event in 4th gen (where they started using Cherish Balls)
2. Yes. From my understanding, any pokemon recieved from Colosseum will have "Distant Land".
3. No, the games only record what they arrived at, so they weren't necessarily caught at that level.

Looks alright to me. You can breed level up moves if both parents know them, the clock on the DS can be changed. It may have been RNG'd for.

Thanks for the answers. And thanks for the explanation on the system clock- I didn't realize it could range from 2000 to 2099. Guess I'll have to look harder at the ones with messed up dates.

Some things seem a little weird like the Darkrai caught in a net ball, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's hacked.The Jirachi looks okay (But I think it's kinda funny how the OT is "WISHMKR"...it's almost as if they only played the game just to catch Jirachi :D)

The WISHMKR Jirachi is an event Jirachi that came in a bonus disc obtained by pre-ordering Pokemon Colosseum.
Anyway, with that OT and Hoenn being the location, I'm pretty sure it's legit.

I'm not one for posting in here to complain, BUT, I need a second opinion.

Traded for a Growlithe is flawless IV's but when I checked on the SEREBII IV checker...thing it isn't giving me FLAWLESS IV's.

The Person I traded with (Who I won't name till I get a final answer here) then said they checked with 'The Judge', so I did and had this convo


"You can call me the judge

heh heh, that's actually not my real name, but its what everyone calls me

its because of this weird power I have, its a gift, really

I can discern-judge. you might say-the overall potential of individual Pokemon

If you'd like, I could judge the intriguing potential of your Pokemon

*Chose your Growlithe*

I see...I see...

This Pokemon has outstanding Potential overall

That's my determination, and it's final

Incidentally, I would say the best potential lies in its HP

And its attack stat is also good

I see, its Defence stat is also good

Its Sp.Atk is equally good

Its Sp.Def is good as well

Well, its Speed stat is also good

It can't be better in that regard. Thats how I judged it"

*END OF CONVO*

Proof of the Iv's from serebii - http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/5736/proofba.png

Serebii has never let me down before...

MY QUESTION IS!

Am I reading something wrong? Like the IV's on serebii? Is serebii wrong? Will the judge tell me the IV's are flawless or is this his way of saying it is flawless?

Any other questions or comments feel free to add or ask :)

I'm not here to cause a problem for myself or the trader, I just want our back and forth to stop so I know for certain whether the IV's are flawless...I'm not even bothered about trading back for it, I have said I would keep it!

@trunks18723: offhand they look fine. The Golett may have been RNG'd for, considering it's nature.

@Matt36: IV calculators are not extremely accurate at level 1. If you were to level it some (keeping track of any evs) the IV ranges would eventually narrow down to show that it is in fact completely flawless as the judge states -that's just his way of saying flawless. (I assume this thing was RNG'd, which makes me wonder why they actually bothered to get Sp. Attack flawless as well, but w/e)

thanks a bunch makes me feel a little better hehe hmm if i could ask one more thing. does nintendo get made if you have helped xfer a knowinling hacked pokemon? like my pokedex has a few shiney pokes in it that i helped friends xfer. while i dont own any of theam is it bad there even in my pokedex?
Nintendo can't do anything about hacked Pokémon. If you feel happy about having "hacked" Pokédex entries, that's fine. If the shiny Pokémon were hacked, and you have the shiny entries, then you haven't legitimately added to your Pokédex. Although you didn't hack, a hacked Pokémon has left a mark on your game. It's up to what you feel about the subject.

To add to that, Nintendo is fully aware that players get nonchalantly traded hacked pokemon all the time.

For example, you wouldn't get banned if you tried to take a hacked pokemon on Random Matchup on wi-fi. If the pokemon has any move or ability combinations it can't have, it simply will be "not allowed to participate", and you can get right back on Random Matchup if all your pokemon are legitimate.

thanks for the input you guys i was just a little concerned. i am not a hacker i pride myself in keeping my game legit.i still may even start a new file w/o the shiny's in my dex but i just mainly wanted to make sure there would be no negative recourse just for having them in my dex. such as not being able to enter events on tournys and so forth. you guys have been a big help though!

The IVs are all 31. It would seem as though it has EVs of 252 across the board as well (which is illegal, making an EV total of 1,512). All the stats are at their respective maxima (Keep in mind that HP, Atk, Def, and SpDef are at the maximum for a neutral nature, and Speed is at the maximum for a hindering nature).

Your friend did more to your Venusaur than add Frenzy Plant...

If the name is still Japanese, then it's legit. If not, someone must've hack in the name to change it to English, which will make it semi-hacked. Mat is well known for being a RNG researcher who's very good at RNG'ing, so as far as the pokemon ITSELF goes, it's legit. .-.

I'd be curious how he RNG'd for that without having any way of advancing the IV RNG, but meh, could have just gone for the PID RNG and the IVs up to dumb luck. Anyways

edit: wait, is the hidden power 70? Urge to get his parameter info to see if someone else can recreate that target frame or not, but i"m lazy.

The language of the name shouldn't be an issue. I believe Ja-Du-Su was thinking about how the international games weren't out at that time, and the japanese games have a limit of 5 english characters for names (so I've heard). However that really doesn't matter as the date could be set wrong on the ds (and would be for RNGing).

Mega Punch and Reflect Type are level up attacks (MP at lvl 10 and RT at Base) so they both check out assuming (s)he used Heart Scales to get those moves. Plus, Mega Punch is a Gen III move tutor move (at least in FR/LG it is).
