PSA: How to tell if you've been traded hacked pokemon.

#1PokegenPolicePosted 1/31/2014 1:31:57 AM
So as some of you may know, it is possible to hex edit a pokemon to give a Kalos pentagon to a pokegenned mon.

Well now there's a very easy way to tell... simply take your suspicious pokemon to the memory girl outside the Anitstar City Pokecenter and if she tells you ''This pokemon has a good memory, but it cannot remember", sorry to say, you've been traded a hack.

A list of things I know to be hacks that are going around at the moment
Shiny HP Ground Caterpie Timid Shield Dust
Shiny 6IV Drowzee
Shiny 5IV Bonsly
Shiny 5IV Deerling (all forms)

Well it says
'The Pokemon seems to have a good memory, but it doesn't seem to be able to remember...'
Is that basically saying it's hacked? :l

How can a poke with a Kalos pentagon be from Bank?

This was posted purely as a means of identifying the rampant 'pentagens' that have been flying around these boards.

But a bank mon wouldnt have the kalos mark...

Although I must admit OP has nothing to back it up.

Wouldn't it be obviously genned if it had a pentagon but the catch info doesn't mention any location within kalos?

The special-event Torchic has that too. Is that hacked? o.o

No, because the hex edit changes the game's version, so whatever the location in Gen 5 was, would become a corresponding location in Gen 6 (whatever happens to have the same area ID, the structure of the files is very basic).
