    Default Hack-Check Thread

    Post here if you're not sure if your Pokemon is legitimate or not, or to help another user. Be sure to follow all other rules and use this form when posting:

    If you can provide a picture with this info and more, that would help out people checking.

    Disclaimer: Remember, it is impossible for anyone to truly say a Pokemon is legit unless you caught it yourself. This thread can serve as a guide to tell you if a Pokemon is definitely hacked, or tell you if it looks legit, but hackers can make any Pokemon look legit with enough effort.

    EDIT: Even if you're using PokeCheck to just check if a Pokemon is legit or not, please don't mention/link to it here as it's still deemed illegal.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Well, technically, there CAN be Johto starters from Colosseum(Distant Land + Long travel through time) in master balls. But if it is infact from a HG game, yeah, you're right.

    Why anyone would use a masterball I dunno, but if you had mutliple, ya might...

    Just wanted to mention that. =U

    a shiny pokemon with a nature that benefits it just looks suspicious, not 100% but my guess it is

    That looks fine to me. It is capable of being shiny and from an egg since Lucario can breed, it would hatch as Riolu but evolves through happiness. It can also learn all of those moves. If I missed something and someone else notices it as fake, then I apologize.

    This one doesn't seem legit even to me and I don't even know what to look for, but positive nature on a shiny just seems suspicious to me.

    A good first step to determining whether or not a shiny is hacked is to have it inspected by the judge at the Battle Subway, since many hackers like to take things a step further and give the Pokemon flawless IVs in every stat.

    just because a shiny has a benefitting nature doesnt mean its hacked, using an everstone on one of the parents that has that nature during breeding = nature passed down, in fact many MM'ers do that

    @dominussapientia(sp?): both pokemon look legit, both seem to have been bred, so i'd say they are legit

    @fruitsalad: legit

    @darumakkaimposter: thats not a good idea to release it, look at what skresh said, if its not along the lines of what he said, it's hacked stupid me, didn't see HG on there, so yes it's hacked

    To me, that looks legit. Psychic and Morning Sun are Level Up moves while Curse and Yawn are both egg moves. I am not an expert on egg moves so I am not completely sure on how egg moves work, I only have novice knowledge on egg moves. But from what I got out of looking it up, Torkoal was egg moved to learn Yawn and knew Curse and then he was bred with whatever to make it hatch an Eevee with those two moves.

    If it hatched as an egg and it says Sky Arrow Bridge it's probably because the bridge is very large and an ideal place to hatch eggs.

    This reminds me of the good ol GTS Guardians i used to do with some people for gen 4 I will help out in anyway possible
    Falcon is correct , that is a VERY rare and legit specimen you have there , shiny pokemon are hard to hack unless this person somehow made a program to hack pokemon for black and white (which currently does not exist) CONGRATS on your shiny pokemon it is indeed legit :P
    EDIT: Wait did it say from an egg or caught on skyarrow bridge?

    I'm not 100% sure if the Tepig is legit or not, but why would somebody trade a very rare shiny like Tepig? It took me over 500 eggs to hatch mine, so I know I wouldn't trade it for anything, so my guess is it's hacked.

    If someone is new to the game they may not even know what a shiny is, and tepig isn't that different in its first form.

    He said his friend wanted him to check them for him. Also, some MM'ers have gotten Shiny Starters in less than 100 eggs.

    IV's: (if known) 26 hp 7 att 15 def 29 sp atk 18 sp def and 15 spd
    Nature: Careful nature (reduces special def, increase special attack) This made me worried
    Characteristic:
    Ability:very finicky
    Moves:roar of time, spacial rend, nightmare, hypnosis
    Level Caught at: Apparently arrived at level 50, but i was sure it said level 40 full moon island before i traded? I dont know, maybe my memory is failing.

    The Pokeball it's in is a Cherish Ball which is the Pokeball event Pokemon are given out in. At least the ones from Diamond and Pearl onwards. Since it's shiny however, it's hacked because events can't be shiny unless they're given out as Shinies like the Crown Beasts (Entei, Suicune and Raikou). Also, Careful is not a beneficial Nature for Darkrai as it boosts Special Defense and reduces Special Attack. Not the other way round.
    Don't judge me or my life choices unless you know and understand the reasons behind them.

    cherish ball was trying to remember the name ...event pokemon can be shiny by way of resetting until it shows up as one and not all event pokemon have set natures ...the most recent celebi for example.
