Nah, it's just prime time for posting and Poké Bank's finally out worldwide. I do find it a bit ironic that a topic intended to stem the tide is instead getting swept away by it, but hey, what else are you going to do? --- "In the beginning, the Universe was created.

There have been numerous reports all day of legit event Pokemon being denied and hacked Pokemon getting through. You can expect an update to Poke Transporter in the next few weeks to tweak the Legit Check so that Event Pokemon are allowed through.
As with the GTS Legit Check looks at four things:
IV Values: If one more more value is too high it will not be allowed through Moves*: If the Pokemon has moves it can't learn in-game it will not be allowed through. Place Caught*: If the legendary is caught somewhere outside where it is normally found it will not be allowed through. Fateful Encounter*: This applies to in-game Event Pokemon Like Dialga/Palkia, Ho-Oh/Lugia and Shaymin. If the Event Pokemon does not have the tag "A Fateful Encounter" it will be allowed through.
*Of course there are Promo Pokemon who have moves they would not not normally learn and are not "caught" in game. To top it off some Event Pokemon do not come with the "A Fateful Encounter" tag on them.
I decided to test the Legit Check about an hour ago and created 4 Pokemon with my Action Replay in Black 1: 2 Rotom, 3 Tyrogue, 3 Arceus, 2 Genesect and 3 Deoxys. The 2 Rotom and 3 Tyrogue passed the check while the 3 Legendaries did not. Of course, legendaries are more likely to fail the check compared to breedable Pokemon. I didn't hack the stats of any of the Pokemon, just the levels and place.
Even so it's interesting. I feel bad for those whose event Pokemon were denied. I will continue playing with the Legit Check to try to figure out what parameters are used to decide "Pass" or "Fail" at least until a definitive list is made and/or Nintendo updates the App.
Much obliged, keep us posted. Bank doesn't seem to work with my wifi so most the info I'm putting here is just common knowledge. --- 3DS FC: 3754 7732 9971 Fighting Safari - Meditite, Sawk, Tyrogue
