Pokemon bank hacks? Help!

#1remyz99Posted 2/7/2014 8:22:52 PM
I recently traded my legit Victini for a shiny level 100 regigigas caught in a cherish ball. All my pokemon transferred from bank have, in the date recieved part of their summary, a notice that says:

"Seems to have travelled across both space and time in order to reach the kalos region from the ______ region"

The regigigas however states:

A fateful encounter seem to have led it across both space and time in order to reach the kalos region from the ______ region"

I have no idea if this is an event exclusive text or if it was just a pretty bad hack but can somebody please help me out? Thanks!

P.S: I cannot check if this is event exclusive seeing how the only event pokemon i have ever got is victini who is gone now.

For future reference, you'll know if it's an event Pokemon if it has a special OT or ID number. Like, FAL2011, or 00010.

@TropiOUs: Yeah, i thought it was a hack but i thought there could have been an event for a shiny one (e.g like almost every other legendary). Ok thats an overstatement but still.

@Puglia77: Thanks for the answer on how to check next time, i just wasn't sure on the hack thing because pokemon bank is "meant" to stop hacks.

There were Regigigas events all over the world, but it doesn't say if they were shiny or not.

I have an event Regigigas on my Platinum game that I received from TRU; it's not shiny as far as I know but I can check on it. I'll let you know what I find out.

Thanks for those people who said they would find out but it's fine, i'm almost 100% sure it's a hack, i don't really care though.

That's a Diamond/Pearl event Regigigas. It unlocked the other three Regis when you traded it to Platinum. Most event pokemon have the fateful encounter tag. The region it came from should be Sinnoh, right?

For most event pokemon, not having the fateful encounter tag means it's hacked.

I'm pretty sure that event could be shiny, at least in Japan.

As far as I know, all events are Shiny locked not to be shiny unless they are released as shiny such as the crown beasts

Most are, but not all.
