Well, hacking today is pretty advanced.
It is really up to you if you want to risk it. Hacking only has a small chance to mess up your game, so if you have hacked a lot, then yeah, you should be worried and release most-all of the hacked Pokemons. If in battle, the Pokemon is labeled "Bad Egg", then it is recommended that you get rid of it immediately.

If you have hacked like, only a few pokes, there is nothing wrong in keeping them, but keep in mind that if you do, you run the risk of messing up your game.

So you won't have to worry, just release the hacked Pokemons and you are set to go.

It varies. Usually they're fine to keep, but you do it at your own risk.

Hacked Pokemon, in general, are caused by modifications with the game programming; so therefore they should be treated a little differently. Sometimes, hacked Pokemon can do different things to each other - some can freeze the game when viewing the summary, some cause screens to blur; etc., but usually these aren't threatening to the save file itself - but the files it uses. So, if you kepr it in your PC Box, for example, it can't really do anything; it's a different story with glitch Pokemon, which most people think are identical to hacked ones. So if they are not used, they can't really do much; but keep them at your own risk. Summing it up:

  • If you want to be on the safe side, get rid of it.
  • If you want to run a risk but keep a Pokemon, keep it.

The consequences of hacked Pokemon aren't too serious really. Some more so than others however. They can potentially cause permanent damage to the game; e.g. causing an un-releasable spot in the party that can't be moved, for example. These prove harmful, but they are not a serious as glitches which can venture further into the game. Basically it depends on what you actually hack; if you chance the wrong thing, you'll cop something bad back. If you change something minor, you may be able to weasel your way out of a problem. Usually things like Action Replay or ROMs aren't too harmful; I have more trust in them than anything else.

I, myself, would release the hacked Pokemon, whether it be a Bad Egg or an overlevelled Arceus; if you keep it, you are taking a risk.
