What's the difference between Kalos-bred / Legit Pokebank / Pokegened?

#1AnimakoPosted 4/23/2014 4:50:27 PM
I mean, besides the memories and remembering egg moves.

What I'm wondering is:

- Is there a way to tell a Pokegened poke apart from a legit one if it's well made?

- Do Pokegened pokes can any weird ribbon attached to them or stuff like that?

- Can a Pokegened poke cause trouble or act weirdly in my game once it's been transfered throuth Pokebank if it wasn't programmed carefully?

- Besides official tournaments, is there a type of battle Pokemon from Pokebank cannot enter?

Thank you very much for your answers!

For the last question, there is not a battle style (besides official tournaments), that Pokebank pokemon can't enter, unless they're certain legendaries, in which case maison and rated battles are a no-go.

To be more clear about the ribbons, they can but do not have to have any ribbon, as such there is no "Pokegenned" Ribbon (though some think the Pokecheck ribbon is that ribbon as it's the most common method of obtaining your Pokegenned mon) but you could have them contain anywhere between none and all of the ribbons.

Oh I see, thank you very much for the explanation.

May I ask, what's the Pokecheck ribbon? And how can you avoid it?

There's no need to "avoid" it. Nothing that can be put into your game has any ability of "hurting" it. End of story. But to answer the question;

Pokecheck is a pokemon uploading/downloading server built with the main purpose of keeping backups of Pokemon. It became popular to use as a transfer service to import PokeGen'd pokes into Gen 4 and Gen 5 games. Any Pokemon that comes off the Pokecheck servers is slapped with a Classic Ribbon (otherwise exclusive to Event pokemon, but Bank doesn't care about it).

Long story short, it's an event ribbon that doesn't mean a thing except that the Pokemon was gotten from the Pokecheck servers (or... y'know, is from an actual event).

There's a Ribbon for event Pokemon, I forget the name. Pokemon downloaded from Pokecheck via GTS methods are automatically given said Ribbon, as this Ribbon prevented them from being traded via GTS again.

To avoid this, get another method of obtaining Pokegenned mon (which you'll have to do anyway after May 20th). I myself use an NDS Adapter Plus to directly modify my save file.

Nintendo shuts down the wifi servers for NDS and Wii, which means using the fake GTS methods like Pokecheck/PokeGTS will no longer be possible until someone emulates the authentication server that all Nintendo Wii/DS Wifi communications had to go through.
