Problem with Pokemon Bank?

#1artistexplosionPosted 5/17/2014 4:56:16 PM
The PokéBank won't let me transfer a Surfing Pikachu. I tried creating one by myself, downloaded .pkm files from some sites, but it still won't let me. It let me transfer a Flying Pikachu which I created, though. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

The fact it is hacked? I would say that is by far the most likely reason...

Surfing Pikachus don't pass Bank, I heard. Real shame :/
(yet even more obscure things like Teeter Dance Pikachu pass.)

Even though Bank's hack checks are bad, it still doesn't let the obvious hacks pass. Show us the Pokecheck page.

SurfChu was introduced in HG/SS, I believe, and it cannot be traded to a newer gen from that game. FlyChu, however, can be traded up to X/Y legit, as a event for it was released a little while back.

Obvious hacks? Surfing Pikachu was a legit event Pokémon. This is the site where I got the .pkm files from: http://pokecheats.net/eventdb/english.php

Teeter Dance isn't a HM move and was actually given out to the Pikachu line twice, once during 3rd gen and once during the 5th. So it makes sense actually for it to pass because its perfectly possible to have one.

Surfchu doesn't pass because it hasn't been given out since 4th gen and to transfer from 4th gen to 5th it needs to have the HM move removed. So it can only go up to 4th gen games legitimately.

Alright, got it. It's a shame, though. Well, thanks for telling me!
