So 3rd/4th gen exclusive tutor moves are flagged as illegal?

I tried to upload a battle video and got a "there was a problem with the Pokemon in your video" message. Everything was bred and trained by me on the carts so I know no hacks were involved. Would something like this be flagged at say VGC tournaments as well?

They shouldn't be.
What were the pokemon and movesets in the video?

Probably your opponent. Can't remember if having an inappropriate nickname or OT name blocks it too.

It was a Battle Subway video so I'd hope my opponent wasn't hacking lol. The move in question is Seismic Toss on Dusknoir.

I didn't realize they had a censor of sorts on nicknames but I don't know if calling my Hariyama "Big Boned" is offensive enough to trigger something like that. The rest of the nicknames are pretty tame otherwise.

"Big Boned" is fine. Assuming your Dusknoir originated from 3rd gen that should be fine... There are certain names that are blocked that doesn't make sense at first glance though.

I think Gamefreak allows exclusive moves from previous gens, but only if the Pokemon who know it are actually from that gen. i.e. back in Black/White a Swampert from Unova that knew Stealth Rocks would be illegal.

All of the Pokemon used were bred in Emerald because I suck at RNGing on the DS. <_<

Uploading to YT as we speak...

Maybe because neither Dusknoir nor Dusclops can learn it in any generation in or after Dusknoir was introduced, it was easily overlooked.

For your reference

If your Pokemon's nickname contains anything on that list, the VS. Recorder won't like it.

That list is FAR from complete btw. Example someone had a problem with their OT "Violet" because it contained "viol", which is French for rape.
