It's becoming all-too-common for these threads in this forum, so I'm making a sticky for it. All you do is come in, list information about the Pokemon, and ask whether or not it's hacked. I'm banking on you knowledgeable people who usually answer to come here and answer for us. :)

A possible format to frame your question would be this:

Gen this is concerning:
Pokemon Species:
Nickname:
Ribbons:
Ball:
Area encountered:
Level encountered:
OT:
Moves:
Stats:

Keep in mind that the more information you give, the easier it is to spot a hack, usually.

Celebi

Hey, Thanks! ^^

Anyway, I traded that Celebi (Which is Japanese in a Master Ball) for a Shiny Unknown. :/ I mean, I don't mind having Celebi, but I would have preferred to change that unknown for a shiny charmander or something...

yes, that would be nice.

I got a Level 70 Celebi ( CELEBI) OT MAIKE ( May´s german name o_O) ID 346475, in a masterball.

I bet it is hacked because of the ball. A list of all possible Celebi IDs would be nice, though. Because I´ll try to find a legit in the GTS although it might be impossible.

A hacked pokemon isn´t that risky isn´t it? ^^;

And legendaries you can catch in other games at lower levels, like the Colosseum legendary dogs and Celebi.

Just because its in a Master Ball doesn't necessarily mean it's hacked....I have trapped two Legit in Master Balls, but who knows when they are real or not?

The fact that Celebi has no ingame event means catching it in a MAsterball is impossible. All Celebis destributed outside Japan was a download-type event. Japan Coloseum has a bonus disc for Celebi which I would guess acts like Jirachi and has "Fateful Encounter" and is caught in a Pokeball.

Isn't there a Japanese in-game catching event, though?

Only in Crystal.

I'll track down the Smogon thread that contains NYPC Pokemon. All I can remember is a BLissey with Wish.

By the way, BP Turtwig/Chimchar/Piplup and Wish Cresselia is all a haox.

Smogon thread on NYPC/Giveaway Pokemon

I doubt it really counts as advertising when it is a major forum most people know about. The thread gives out most of the info.

Celebi should always have the trainer ID: 10 ANIV/#00010. All Celebi are recieved at L70 and will say, "A fateful encounter." when in Emerald, FR, or LG. It will have to have had come from Kanto or Hoenn in order to be legitimate. It comes in a regular Pokeball.

Jirachi should always have the trainer ID: WSHMKR/#20043 (needs to be double checked). Similarly, it should also have had "A fateful encounter." tagged on it, but if Pal Parked, will say it came from Hoenn, as the bonus disc doesn't work with the Kanto games or Emerald. It comes in a regular Pokeball. The minimum level of Jirachi is L5.

Deoxys can have any ID, as it is a Pokemon that is caught. As such, it's minimum level is 30 and it most likely came from Kanto (I don't remember them having an Aurora Ticket event after Emerald came out). I do remember the NASA Deoxys Space event, but I don't have any information on that myself (I didn't attend it).

Lugia and Ho-Oh can either come from "A Distant Land" or from Kanto or from Hoenn (sorry, that's every game it seems). When caught with the Mystic Ticket from either FR, LG, or EM, they should be at a minimum level of 70. As they are caught manually and not given away, like Deoxys, their OT will change, their ID will change, and the ball they are caught in will change.

Not all Jirachi's. I have 3. They come from the bonus disc of the pre-order of Colisseum. It means they are real. Tho, the OT is: WISHMKR and ID: 20043
But since I passed it to Diamond, it no longer appears Fatefull encounter, it just reads, Hoenn. Arrived at Lv. 41 (Duh, he's level 41, Hate him, lol.)


EDIT: Whoops *Reads post above* Heh..he beat me ^^;

I've got a Lv.37 Celebi off of GTS. Clearly, It couldn't have been put up if it was hacked. It had a normal ID too.

THe CHANNEL Jirachi won't have a WSKMKR ID.

I got a hacked Shiny Psyduck during the event of Ponyta trading....at least I think it's hacked. I searched around, and it happened to many people ¬¬
Of course, my sister liked the idea of entering to try and get a shiny, but all she got was a TRY AGAIN psyduck ^^;

Not an offered one. They have to accept your offer with a hacked pokemon. You CANNOT offer a hacked pokemon on the GTS.

Well, what is the level of the Blissey? Looking at the stats, though, it looks like the stats may be hacked. I'm not to sure though. I'm not the authority on these kind of things.
