How to know if a Legendary for Trade is hacked or not

#1Marinho316Posted 2/17/2014 9:07:16 PM
There's someone looking for trade his Deoxys, Keldeo and Genesect for a shiny pokemon. What if there's no blue pentagon? Is it just because they are not from kalos or because they are hacked or what? In other words, how could I know if they are legit or not?

Do you I trade or not?

You don't know. The blue pentagon means if they're from Kalos or not.

The ONLY way to tell if it is hacked or not if it is a previous gen pokemon is to transfer it yourself.

Or if it has illegal move/ability/nature combinations.

Ohhh, thanks. He is also offering attack form Deoxys, pressure, red pokeball and rash nature. Level 50... Any event Deoxys like that?

In all honesty, a good potion of the legendaries that get traded around are probably hacks and clones.

Does it really matter in the long run though? If you obtain it legitimately (like through a trade), and there's no way of knowing the Pokemon's origin, then just be happy knowing that you obtained it legally.
