That's really a question of whether someone subscribes to moral legitness or to programmatic legitness: hacking an item to get an event generates a pokemon which is programmatically legit, but moralists would argue that the pokemon should never have existed.

Choose your path and walk accordingly.

If any cheating is dome to get the Pokemon into0 existance, the legit-ness of the Pokemon is gone. You did not go through all the steps intended to get it, you took shortcuts, it's hacked. After that comes the question of how obviously hacked, badly hacked, illegally hacked it is, but in the end, it's still hacked.

Any idiot can hack, many do.

It doesn't matter if there is no way to tell or not, it's still hacked. Yeah, the hack can be undetectable, but it is still there. Worse yet, if I had hacked, it would bug me because *I* would know it was hacked.

I refer you again to the difference between moral legitness and programmatic legitness. I believe Jeff is making the point that because the pokemon could not have existed without cheating, it is not legit in a moral sense.

This is not at all the same as being able to test whether a pokemon is valid, since a pokemon can be valid irrespective of its legitimacy.
