Okay that explains it. Thanks everyone for confriming It was legit.
I thought It was, but was puzzled about the whole egg move thing since I haven`t breed in very long chain. And yeah the ID was Si! ...P...
it should have ID no. 59387 for mine i only really trade from my Platinum cart - all RNG'd & never hacked (i'm strictly against hacking with AR etc) hopefully the IV's are good for you dude i haven't got the hang of IV RNGing :embarass:

All looks legit to me, but its nature sure would help.

Well, that makes it easier. Yep, all looks well. By the way, it's Special Attack IV is incredible, at 30.

Is it even possible for a Wishmaker Jirachi to be shiny? I need verification from multiple sources, and I have been given contradicting answers. That's why it's listed as a "Suspect" Pokémon over at my shop. (Oh, and legit.exe says it's good. I need actual verification that's not from some program, though!)

you have to SR until shiny when transferred into your games from pokemon channel, its a long and annoying process but someoen was nice enough to do it.

I got a shiny Scizor from the Pokecommunity forums a while ago. It seems perfectly legit, but someone told me it's a hack, so I just wanna check.

Pokemon Species: Scizor (Shiny)
Nickname: N/A
Ribbons: Sinnoh Champ Ribbon, Ability Ribbon
Ball: Pokeball
Area encountered:
Day-Care Couple
Egg recieved.
Aug. 24, 2008
Solaceon Town
Egg apparently hatched.
Somewhat vain.

Level encountered: 1 (It was an egg)
OT: Ricardo 37760
Moves:

Swords Dance
Bullet Punch
Bug Bite
Brick Break
Stats:

HP: 281
Atk: 394
Def: 237
SpAtk: 103
SpDef: 196
Spe: 229

So my guess is that someone RNG'd it in DPPt., EV trained it, and used it in the Sinnoh League (Since I'm not the one who did that, I only gave it the Ability Ribbon).

It does look like an RNG'd Scizor with 31/31/31/something/31/31 IVs and 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Speed. The date it was hatched is before the RNG was cracked, but people sometimes have weird dates on their RNGs. To get any more information you'd have to use a legality checker, etc, but it looks OK based on the information you provided. If someone gave you a good reason that it was hacked, you should probably have it looked at.

Why do you think this is hacked? Looks OK based on that info.

It's a shiny in a Master Ball that was traded away for a non-shiny. The person who caught it is either a cheater or immensely lucky and stupid.

They might have cloned it, and there are plenty of stupid people to go around. I'm not saying it's definitely legit, I'm just saying it's not an obvious hack and all of its stats/etc check out at least.

It's hacked, I checked Scizor a while ago and blacklisted it here under: Scizor Adamant Shiny || RICARDO 37760.

someone said the scizor was hacked, but not much was said why it is hacked..
but i think it failed legal.exe, so..

Well then it's hacked...that's why you often have to go beyond just looking at it to see if it's a hack or not.
