Heh, cool. I wonder why he might have chosen to put it on Wondertrade.

Thanks for the analysis!

Species: Arceus (Shiny)
Nickname: Lord Arceus
Ribbons: None
Ball: Cherish Ball
Area Encountered: I got it from GTS (Says Pokemon Movie 15 for previous owner with the Note: Apparently a fateful encounter.)
Level Encountered: 100
OT: Asrael
Moves: Earth Power, Judgment, Hydro Cannon, Blast Burn
Ability: Multitype
Stats: 31/x/31/31/31/31, Timid
HP: 381
Attack: 221
Defense: 276
Sp. Atk: 339
Sp. Def: 276
Speed: 372
EVs: Exact number unknown, most are in Sp. Atk and Speed with a few in Attack.

I really hope he is legit. Someone traded him to me through the GTS for a 5 IV, Modest Bulbasaur I bred. I put it up there hoping for a regular Arceus, so when this guy showed up in my box the next day I was happy...now I am suspicious.

I'm pretty sure that Arceus event's only been available in Japan (meaning the English name and OT are points against it), and the nickname does it no favors, either. I mean, I suppose it's possible, if not especially likely, that someone kept resetting and just happened to get the corresponding ID and SID numbers for the Arceus so that they could rename it (would that even work?), but it's still a long shot, if it's even a shot at all.

Basically, I can't say for certain, but I'm leaning heavily towards hacked.

It looks like an hack. Cherish Ball can't be passed onto offsprings through breeding.

I obtained a shiny level 100 Lugia from WT. It was apparently from Sinnoh. Is that possible?
