How are people asking for unobtainable Pokemon on the GTS?

I noticed a few people asking for things like Mew, Reshiram, Rayquaza, etc. Last I knew, nobody has hacked into the games yet and there's no legitimate way to see those Pokemon either. You also can't ask for Pokemon you haven't at least seen on the GTS, right? So how are people asking for these?

I think there is a place where they show you pics of a Pokemon not available in the game.

You scroll to the bottom when selecting the Pokemon and under "What Pokemon?" you can manually type a Pokemon name.

Oh alright, I didn't realize you can manually type names in. That explains it. I guess I was secretly hoping there were more legends to catch post-game than I was aware of or something... heh.

You can search and ask for any Pokemon that is programmed into the game as long as you know how to spell its name. In the GTS' alphabetical list of Pokemon, just below the letter Z, is an option "What Pokemon?" click that and you can type in the name of any Pokemon to search or ask for, even if you haven't seen it.
