I'm curious ... what if we hacked a pokemon to only appear in the wild?

Years ago I really wanted all 3 grass starters on my Leaf Green, so I asked someone to hack a Chikorita into my game.

Will that pokemon box system not let me transfer it over? =[

Probably. Most likely. You know, it's not that hard to get a legit one...

I'm not sure how it detects things like that.

I hope it would filter it out though, and Pokegenned Pokemon too.

Nothing against you personally, but hacking's not kosher.

In Leaf Green getting one required Pokemon Colosseum for the Gamecube.

Like the other poster said, they're pretty easy to get. Hell, hit me up if you want when the game comes out. I feel everyone should have a copy of the starters, I'll give you one for free.

Oh yeah....I forgot how fortunate I am to have those games. But, it still doesn't change the fact if he has 5th gen he can ask on the trade boards for a legit one now.


Also, I completely agree with your first post.

If it says it was caught in the wild at a certain level then that's pretty easy to detect as a hack, I very much doubt you can transfer it.

I had no internet, and it was Leaf Green ... but I have a bond with my Meganium now. D:

I guess I'll just have to ask for a legit one now. Kinda sad to let it go though.

Well, if it was back in LG, and it is otherwise legit. It is possible. While the game does check the captured at data, does that even carry over when transferring from GBA? IIRC, that data is not recorded after transfer and just says 'from kanto/hoenn' if nothing else about it is hacked other than it was encountered somewhere incorect you may be alright.

TLDR: If the caught at location is incorrect and the pokemon is from a GBA game you may be alright as I think the DS games discard the caught at data when transferring from GBA.

This is a kinda big maybe. It is in a regular pokeball, I hope? As the only way to get johto starters in anything else would be to get them from Colosseum. Which, it'll say 'faraway land' if it were from colo

Just breed it with a Ditto if you're worried. It will be 100% legit then.
