Also, your sig is wrong. Proof. I'm going to take the word of someone who actually showed their evidence over someone making wild claims and not showing a single thing.

A good analogy is "apple is a fruit, but not all fruits are apple".
Usually, if a Pokemon looks fine on the surface, it is considered at least legal.
To confirm whether it is legit or not, a further checking (basically, checking the Pokemon's internal data) is needed. Then the Pokemon can be determined as hacked or legitimate depending on the result of the further checking.
Can Space C Deoxys be shiny? I received one from the GTS...
I also got the same Mew multiple times (Same Nature, IVs...) what does this count as? (They're MYSTRY/Aura)
I also have a Space C Deoxys with this Trainer ID: SPACE C (2 spaces I think, blue)
Are Darkrais without a fateful encounter? I have 2 without it on my White 2 (I got one of them from here and I was assured it's legit :\ I dunno)
Shiny Japanese Faraway Island Mew...
How do people even hack Pokemon? It's on a DS :\
Was the fateful encounter thingy in 3rd Gen too? All my MYSTRY/ANIV 10/SPACE C/others have fateful encounters ._.
They all seem legit, not too high IVs mostly, I just don't entirely trust my shiny SPACE C Deoxys, shiny Faraway Mew, shiny that-garden Shaymin
The dates don't help... I transferred all these to my White 2 this month and it says June 6th or so for all :\
Almost all are from the GTS
If I get Event Pokes off the GTS and they seem legit, are they legit? (Like, does their source - the GTS - affect their legit-ness?)

I'm not really active, I just come here when I remember I need something
I officially have all 718 Pokemon, sorted by numbers. Yay. (March 21st 2014)
Will start competitive battling ONE DAY
Fateful encounters were available in gen 3 as well, and gen 3 handled them differently from what I have heard. I know nothing of gen 3 mechanics, but either way, the fateful flag was there.
The date you transfer pokemon from one game to another is the date that is displayed in their summary. If they all say June 6th, I'm guessing that is the day you transferred them over. Further still, date means absolutely nothing in pokemon. The date is set on the DS and every DS model thus far has allowed the user to adjust the date between a set range (2000-2099 for a DS Lite and 2000-2050 for 3DS models) so any date in those ranges is legal.
No, just because you traded for something does not in and of itself make it a hack. that being said, the GTS is filled with hacks and assholes who have no problem spreading them around. Just be wary of anything you find on the GTS but know that there are still some decent players out there.

Yep, seems like a Hall of Origin Arceus to me.
Most people consider it as hacked because the item required to obtain it is never released.
Hm, thx. I think i'll keep him as pokedex filler until i obtain 100% legit one from event (i hope there will be one : P)
I just recently got this Blissey from GTS and I need it to be looked up though I believe it's not hacked. Ok, so:
Egg apparently hatched.
ID No. 49655
Exp. Points 800000 (Lvl. 100)
Pokerus: It shows a pink little smiley face. So I guess that means it had the Pokerus.

Any other notes?: Obtained this 'Chomp from the Platinum GTS a long time ago and now she resides on White 2. When I got her on Platinum it said she was hatched. Also she was at some point infected with Pokérus.

Pokemon Species: Jirachi
OT Gender: Blue
EV's: (if known) Unknown
IV's: (if known) Unknown
Ability: Serene Grace
Moves: Cosmic Power, Charge Beam, Future Sight, Water Pulse
Level Caught at: Unknown. It was transferred by myself from Diamond to Platinum then Black already at 100. I don't remember training this Jirachi, since I have always used my WISHMKR Jirachi in battles.
Current Level: 100
Stats: HP 366, Attack 186, Defense 281, Special Attack 306, Special Defense 281, Speed 269
Location Caught: Hoenn, and also says fateful encounter in Black (and probably did in Platinum too).
Pokeball Caught In: Normal/Basic Pokeball (as listed on its stats screen)
Any other notes?: This Jirachi is the only one with that specific ID NUM.
In fact, none of my other Pokemon have the same ID as this Jirachi, but some of them share the same OT (???????).
Information says "Apparently arrived at lv100 after a long travel through time. Fateful encounter. Mischievous."

Aside from that, what else seems wrong with this Jirachi?
Is that fateful encounter not supposed to be there? I thought all Jirachi had fateful encounter flags.
Honestly, I don't remember where this came from, but I didn't trade for it.
it's id doesn't match that to any event jirachi plus the ot. all jirachis have event ots.
