Question about Hacks/Breeding

#1Balamb00Posted 7/20/2013 1:37:58 PM
If you receive a hack in the GTS and then breed it, is the egg considered legit according to the game data?

Basically in Black I would receive rare Pokemon like Spiritomb and Zorua through GTS. I always questioned the legitimacy of the Pokemon so I would breed it and toss the traded Pokemon. I know it's naive to think most Pokemon are legit on GTS but it's really the only method of going about getting a Pokemon that is rare.

According to the game data, yes, and the Pokémon itself will obviously pass hack checks. I can't guarantee your game card itself will pass the general check after possibly coming into contact with a hacked Pokémon, but if you release it, then the chance is quite high. Only way to be 100% sure is to trade and breed on a secondary card (say, X, in case your main game is Y), while hatching the resulting egg on the card you intend to use (Y in this example).
