V. Hacking Standards

1. Use the form. If you're not in a topic strictly for hack requests, do not post a form until you have someone agree to hack you a Pokémon. A copy of the form will be provided below:

[Pokémon]
[Hold Item]
[Trainer ID]
[Secret ID]
[Level]
[Nature]
[Gender]
[Shiny]
[Pokérus Infected/Cured/Neither]
[IVs]
Max (Yes/No)
HP: Atk: Def: Sp. Atk: Sp. Def: Speed:
[EVs]
HP: Atk: Def: Sp. Atk: Sp. Def: Speed:
[Contest Stats]
[Nickname]
[Trainer Name + Gender]
[Pokéball caught in]
[Ability]
[Moves]
-
-
-
-
[PP Maxed]
[Met at level]
[Met at place]
[Date Met]
[Egg Received] Day Care Couple
[Date Egg Received]
[Fateful Encounter]

If you don't know what part of this form means, there's a detailed guide on it in the following posts.

2. Don't be lazy/greedy; Hackers aren't here to make Pokémon that you could easily go and catch with the slightest efforts or fake event-only Pokémon that you'll just trade off for something legit. Furthermore, don't waste your hacker's time or your own by filling out the entire form just so you can get an item. If you really need that extra Master Ball or Life orb, just ask someone for one. You don't need a hacker to get items.

3. Hackers DO NOT like to be overwhelmed by a ton of requests at a time. If you see them busy with several other people, wait for things to calm down a little posting your request.

4. Requesters should always review their forms before even posting it. Often times, we encounter people who change details while the editing is already taking place, thus prolonging the process.

5. This is just an extension general of rule 4. If you're in a situation where you're getting a hack or edit, remember that the names are case-sensitive. If you put "Bulbasaur" in the nickname area, and you wanted the default name, you'll end up disappointed.

This is a guide that fully explains how to fill out the form, with a detailed explanation of each field.

[Pokémon]
You put the species of Pokémon you want here. If the Pokémon has multiple forms like Deoxys or Wormadam, put which form you want here.

[Hold Item]
This is the item you want the hack to be holding. Although some event items can be hacked, all cannot trigger the event, so avoid asking for a hacked event item.

[Trainer ID]
This is the ID number you want the hack to have. You can find yours on your trainer card.

[Secret ID]
Secret ID is just another 5-digit number used to further identify ownership of a Pokémon. It is hidden from anyone without a cheating or save backup device. Unless the OT, OT Gender, ID, and secret ID all match, the summary will say "apparently met at" instead of "met at" and the Pokémon will gain boosted experience as if it were obtained through a trade. If you don't know your secret ID then there's no way the Pokémon will count as yours, so just leave it blank. Alternatively, you could get someone who has a flash cart to tell you your secret ID.

[Level]
This is the level the Pokémon will be when you receive it.

[Nature]
This is the nature the Pokémon will have. There are 25 of them, 20 of which affect stats.

[Gender]
Will your Pokémon be male or female? Put that here. If it has no gender, put none or leave it blank.

[Shiny]
Do you want your Pokémon Shiny? Put yes or no here.

[Pokérus Infected/Cured/Neither]
Will your Pokémon have the Pokérus? Infected means it's still contagious and can spread through your party, cured means the Pokémon will get the effects of Pokérus but won't spread it, and none means it won't be infected at all.
