    Hello, I had an idea that may or may not work out.

    As you know, the gts is full of hacked event legends and it is unfair when anyone gets stuck with one. Such 'pokemon' degrade the quality of the gts trades. We have all complained about it....but why don't we take action?

    There is a way to remove such things from the gts that is simple but requires extremely generous minded people.

    As a GTS Guardian we can make a collective effort to remove fake event legends from the gts by actively fishing them out. By loading something legit onto the gts and asking for mew, celebi or jirachi you may catch the 'illegal' trade and delete it in your version by releasing it. You will need something legit that would actually be worth this type of trade-maybe clone something good.

    [U]So our mission:[U] To make the GTS honest and fair for everyone!

    What if I get a legit pokemon in return That is up to you. You may keep it, trade it, send it back or maybe think of donating it to someone in the trade forum who wants one.

    Members responsibility Post progress reports. If you are uncertain of something, put it up for examination. Be active. If you won't be around, let us know. Otherwise, your member status will become MissingNo status

    So if you are also disappointed by the tainted reputation of the gts, join us and help make a difference!

    Well unfortunately no members yet. Oh well, here's my initial progress report:

    Date: Feb 06 (yesturday's activities)
    Pokemon Obtained from GTS: Lv. 100 celebi with japanese lettering/ ot.
    Analysis: ID number 31121 and japanese names confirm that this is actually a legit Ageto celebi (what are the odds of getting hacks when looking for legits and legits when hunting hacks?!!!)

    Decided Action: As I already have my very own celebi I don't need another so it will be donated to the Trade Forum.


    If anyone is interested in joining, we need not only 'hunters' but an 'analyst' as well (someone with complete knowledge of legit event legends to help in those tough to determine cases)

    well i will join
    because have been trade hacked pokemon before but do you have to limit my self to gts because the wifi chat room has many hackers
    The greatest fear I have about death is going to heaven because my heart is encased with malice, which should not be seen by sacred eyes. That only leaves hell and all my inner demons that come with it, to call home.

    Alright! Welcome HellDamphir!

    Yes we are focussing on removing hacks from the gts. When I was getting my jirachi and mew I found that at least 3/4 or 75% were hacks.

    So are you going to be a hunter or an analyst? Or both?

    So the only rules are that we don't send hacks into the gts and we do progress reports here. If you get a legit poke instead of a hack sent to you it is up to you to decide. Just like I did in my first report.

    Welcome aboard and good luck!
    P.S do you have pokemon you can use for this mission that you don't want? Just checking!

    Progress Report: Firewall

    Date: Feb 8
    Pulled from GTS: A japanese mew lv.19.
    Analysis: It's ID number and japanese text confirms it is a legit wave mew. Sigh, weird how when I want legits I get the hacks but now it is backwards! Moves have been messed with but that could've been the trainer's fault and not a hack result since the three moves are all tms.

    Decided action: I am donating her to the trade forum.

    Welcome aboard! So I am sure you know what to do and how to report so lets get cracking! Are you able to hunt?

    Here is one thing to look for: I have noticed one trainer named jesus repeatly for weeks putting up jirachi, always the same location. I know he is handing out AR'd jirachi as he announced his intentions on another forum. If we can grab his and release them that'd be helpful!

    I certainly like the ideology behind this. It's a very noble kind of thing. I would absolutely LOVE to be a part of it... however... I have no Wi-Fi/GTS access at the moment, and won't until we move out of the apartment complex this summer. (Neighboring routers kill my connections... Sadness.)

    However... if it's something that one could learn to do (I like to think of myself as a competent individual), perhaps I could lend my efforts to analyzing? All I need to know is what kind of things to look for... gah, I'm making a fool of myself. If you think there's any way I could help, please let me know. If anything, I could at least be a kind of forum aid, no?

    Thanks for the consideration,

    ~Jean

    Sure you can join. For now you can do Analysis. So If there is anything we find and are unsure of its legitimacy you can help make the call. You will need to have a knowledge of event legends such as details it should have. Like the OT, ID, english names or another language, type of ball it should be in, if there are any that could be personally caught or only through downloads. You can help out for sure!

    Welcome aboard!

    Welcome aboard!
    Awesome, and I do have a fairly extensive knowledge of where Pokémon occur in-canon, so I'll be able to spot fake-location hacks of the bat. Also, I know the names of nearly all the Pokémon in both English and French, and I have a source for finding the other various languages. I have about four different Pokédex guides (Prima, Vs. Books, Serebii, PokéDream), and a large listing of information as to OT's and the like.

    All in all, I'm certainly glad to be the "Senior" Analyst!

    I love the idea of the two trainers, Jirachi in the middle, and the GTS launch tunnel. An awesome thing. Now then, about whether it should be a legit Jirachi or not... I have an idea, but it may take a bit more effort. If we can find someone to do some sprite splicing, we could have a Half-and-Half Jirachi; good and evil at once, representing both sides of that for which we stand.

    Once we get a banner, I'll put it into my signature, and I'm going to go ahead and place a link now.

    Alright, so as the Senior Analyst, please add a link to my Email address beside my name on the member list, so that people can immediately Email me any questions they have about the Pokémon they've found:

    jeanpaolobrunocartier@gmail.com

    Thanks, and again - very glad to be aboard.

    ~Jean

    EDIT: Check out my signature. I was just typing away, and the words came to me. How does that sound for a motto? If nobody likes it, I'll gladly remove it.

    yeah, I was thinking about that. If you are good at banners you can make them. I was thinking of a Jirachi with a confident/brave look on its face holding a sword and shield and in a cool pose and the background is the launch tunnel from the gts. Our motto? I thought of "Hacks stop here" or "GTS Guardians: the defenders of honesty" What do you think? I think whatever we have, should be mutually agreed upon.

    Yes you can join. Are you going to be able to find and "destroy" hacks? That's what we do. It takes having some pokemon you don't want anymore that you can send up and potentially pull out a hack. So, the only rules are to release hacks and post regular progress reports like I did. Also, feel free to have input on our banner.


    PS: when I first sought a mew and jirach I got those hacks that are in masterballs with trainers called "AAAAA" or the mew at lv.10 that said fateful encounter at lv.50!

    That's when I came up with this idea.

    hmmmmmmmm the whole banner thing would be a little hard considering i cant find any picks of Jirachi like that. but i have another idea. i still like the whole sword and shied idea soo we can add that onto a regular trainer. and add him on both sides of the banner. then put a Jirachi in the middle. id then put a gts portal background. sound smashing or what!!!

    Excellent! That is pretty cool! Use a male and a female trainer ok? Also, consider whether the jirachi should be a legit aiding us or a hack that looks "glitchy" so the trainers are focussed their attention on it.

    The King of ho-ohs, welcome aboard! So, get after whatever you can hunt and prepare progress reports. So they're coming as "EEEEEE" now? Figures.


    Anyways, so is everyone in agreement with the direction of the banner?

    Firewall, I got an e-mail back from the guide writer on your Jirachi.

    I'd be inclined to say hack, as they seem to be based off WISHMKR which is only available male. I believe I don't list trainer genders for a few of the Pokemon (noticed it on WISHMKR), it's a discrepancy I intend to rectify when time permits.
    He thinks female OT channel Jirachi's are hacks, but admits he could be wrong because some games/events determine gender when they get put in the game, but admits he's only theorizing.

    What would really resolve this is someone who owns a European copy of Pokemon Channel to answer the following questions:

    1. Are you male/female?
    2. When you transferred Jirachi, did the OT show up in red or blue letters and the OT's name is CHANNEL?
    3. Did someone with the opposite sex registered on their cartridge also transfer Jirachi? If so, what color was the OT's color?

    And my channel Jirachi is female too. I'm personally inclined to say that it can be either/or, but we should fine a Channel owner or 3 before making any solid conclusions.

    Hi, I have Pokemon Channel and I will get back later with the answers

    Progress Report:
    date 06/03/08
    pokemon obtained: jirachi level 49 @ star piece OT: Kostas
    analysis: caught at route 204 at level 1 in 2000!
    action taken: destroyed

    EDIT: OK, I am male, the Jirachi I have just downloaded has CHANNEL in Red (I think its due to I downloaded it to a Ruby game cart)

    Wow this is an extremely good thing your doing! I wish I could be apart of it but sadly I have no pokemon that are worth enough to trade for the hacked pokemon such as jirachi (besides a shiny rayquaza which I'm starting to feel is a hack because of its impeccable IV's).

    If theres anything that I can do I would gladly help!

    Also, I have a small problem with this, if the person is getting the hacked pokemon through an AR and can just instantly generate themselves a pokemon, while they can only have 1 pokemon up on trade at a time, would you be helping them and actually fueling them to want to put up even more hacked pokemon?

    I mean, they can only have 1 pokemon up at a time, so they will have to wait until someone takes it, and there will always be times where it will take a while, but if you instantly trade him then he will want to trade more because he thinks its starting to work...

    Anyway, overall I still think this is a great thing your doing!

    EDIT: Also, I really like that jirachi banner/sig of your!

    IV's , EV's and move sets are not usually a good way to tell if it's a hack. If it is met in Hoenn, at or above the level it's normally met at (lvl 70), and has moves that it can learn and a legit ability, I wouldn't worry about it.

    We're taking the hacks because we know how to properly identify, expose, and destroy them. Others don't. Yeah, the hacker still gets a rare Pokemon (but all of mine are clones) but the important thing is no one else will get the hack.
