Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

How can you tell if a Pokemon is a hacked Pokemon?

Besides obvious things like incredibly high stats and strange moves like Spacial Rend on a Magikarp (yes somebody tried pulling that off on me, mostly for fun though.)

9000 points! Might not be on the same level as DT and Swampert, but I am everybody else is Lightyears away from me (remember where that was from in Pokemon?)
Hmmmmmm, Team Rocket?!
It's from that kid in the pewter gym,"you're light-years away from brock!" light-years measure distance not time.
Oh yeah, I remember that! He has a Diglett, Geodude, and Sandshrew, in FR, LG if I recall correctly!
I think that's the best known Gym trainer (he is at least to me.) No Geodude, but a Diglett and Sandshrew (and Brock was no match for the power of my Charmeleon, thanks mostly to Metal Claw.)
Yeah, same here in my LG, my Charizard beat every gym himself(though I had on my team a victreebell and slowbro, in case charizard ever got in trouble!)
I caught a mankey to help against the battle against brock, that and metal claw. and pikachu against misty.
Yeah, I used a makey alittle bit, too(and just outside Mt. Moon, I taught it Mega Punch and Kick through a move tutor there!). I also used Pidgeotto a little.
Yeah, in my Yellow version, I caught a Mankey to deal with Brock because Pikachu was pretty much useless against him (although it was level 26 by the time I beat Brock, many tries before I got a guide for my birthday and found out I could get a Mankey. It also took me One Month to get through to Viridian Forest. Aw to be Six again.)
In my first red(before it deleted its data), I didnt know how to get the parcel from the pokemart, and had a lvl26 charmeleon at the the 1st gym. By the time I hit Fuschia City, I had a lvl 52 Charizard, and a lvl 43 Pidgeot. Course, I was only 7!
I know! Pretty much the same here. My Pikachu was level 73 by Fuschia because I didn't train anybody else. Although that was my first time playing through the game. I accidentaly started it over before facing Blaine.
Dang, that sucks. We need a place to chat really bad! I was so mad when I lost that team of lvl 100's in red. Now the only lvl 100 pokemon I have is Swampert. Also, whats your best team? I want to know.
Legendaries included: Charizard, Arceus, Mewtwo, Kyogre, Groudon, and either Giratina or Dialga (both are level 100 so I just switch between them.)

Legendaries not included: Charizard, Tyranitar, Metagross, Garchomp, Snorlax, Milotic.

Favorite Pokemon:

1. Charizard
2. Rattata
3. Furret
4. Typhlosion
5. Gengar
6. Mewtwo
7. Lugia
8. Moltres
9. Ampharos
10. Rayquaza
11. Mew (I just love the sound it made in the first Pokemon movie.)
WHat's your favoirte EEveelution? mine is umbreon and jolteon.
Cool, you know my team. My favorites go something like this:
Aggron
Swampert
Torterra
Charizard
Raquaza
Diagla
Golem
Pidgeot
Victreebell
Gengar
Articuno For Eevees, Strength: Espeon(speed and power!) For coolness: Jolteon
Probably Espeon because of I used one in my HG before transferring Pokemon from my other games (I only trade in my Pokemon when I beat the game as much as I can otherwise. In this case I got the other starters after beating Red, and after getting Kyogre which is now one of my best Pokemon.) Also because it was so helpful in Pokemon colusseum. Jolteon is close, although it is still number two. And then I like Glaceon.
Charizard at number 5? Charizard is going to become larger and green for some reason and is going to make the situation worse then it already was.
Fine, charizard at number 4 instead of raquaza, I fixed it.
Charizard still mad. Not really, Rayquaza is a great Pokemon that deserves to be #4. I just think that people underate Charizard too much because of that stupid Stealth Rock.
Here we go again with the large comment thread.
Nah, Charizard deserves spot 4. Hes never failed me. Not when I picked him in red, not when I used him in yellow, not when I used him in LG, not when I used him HG.
I think everybody chooses Charizard in Red (I know I sure did) and Blastoise in Blue (actually, my Brother likes the Grass type starters better, he loves Meganium, he must be the only person to like it. He doesn't like Sceptile however, so he chose Swampert. I always choose the fire types, even the sucky Infernape.)
DT is close to passing you Swampert.
No torterra in platinum? THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! Anyway I like Meganium too, quite a bit, and so does my sister, she loves it. It can be ev trained and nature trained to have AMAZING attack, and special attack, and decent everything else. Mine was, it was my HG starter, is lv 72 with Earthquake, Toxic, Body Slam, and Energy ball.
Yeah, I know, im doomed. While im on vacation, you and him will probably pass me. Thats why im trying to get as amny points as possible before I go(in 5 days, ill be gone for a week).
Actually, it'll be heard for me to hold that for long, I have to register for school tomorrow, then I go back about 2weeks from now. Why must schools in MI start so early?
Well, you would still be 4th (I don't think anybody has been such great point gainers in such short time. I might not even pass you, I've been falling behind.)
YOU LIVE IN MI, DT, WHERE? I LIVE IN MICHIGAN TOO!

If it has unusual stats, looking at the ball used to catch it is another way to tell (unless they are mentally challenged, I don't think anyone would catch a level 2 pidgey with a master ball) also, look at where they met the pokemon. If it says "met ho=oh at route 4" you know it's hacked. some may have a trainer ID of 00000.

I am actually offended by your Level 2 Pidgey thing. Okay this is one of my funny but true Pokemon stories (along with the Shiny Red Metapod, my first shiny, who I caught during the Bug Catching Contest and who only got second place, giving me what is in my opinion, the most useless item because I already had one, the Everstone.) Both of these stories happened in my favorite version, my great and powerful Gold version (first version I had to get all level 100s.) Okay, I had caught all the legendaries in my Gold version. ANd I had most Pokemon. However, I could not catch an Abra. They kept on running from me. So, I used my Master Ball on a level 10 Abra!
In gold, I caught every single legendary without the master ball, and I wanted to save it for the last one to make it easy. So I checked online and saw... I already caught them all. Not having anything else to do with it I tried to catch a doduo... but it belonged to a trainer.
Hahahaahahahah. Come to think of it, ive never used mymaster ball in my HG, SS, emerald(s), ruby, or Platinum!
I just use it because it makes catching Legendaries so much quicker. I kind of get bored thowing Ultra and Dusk Balls over and over even though the foe is paralyzed and has one HP until I can finally use Timer Balls well.
As you know, I restarted my platinum recently. I just caught Giratina today. And Guess What?? I caught it at 1 health, paralyzed, and in a dusk ball!
Why is it that only Palkia and Regice are the Pokemon I can catch easily (I got them in only two turns each. Damnage than Dusk Ball or in Ice's case, Great Ball.) Do you have your Giratina mostly in Altered or Origin form? I like altered better.
I like Origin form better, because it has higher attack than defense. But as I just cauht it, I don't have the orb yet, so its currently in altered form. if you want to see the alternate stats, look in the middl eof this page: http://www.serebii.net/games/forms.shtml
Had a comment for Trachy. I understand the thrill of catching pokemon, but you didn't want to just get the abra from the game corner as a prize?

First of all, check the Pokeball the pokemon was caught in, if it is a cherish ball, it was hacked. Secondly, cheated pokemon will say "Met at Lv. 0". Thirdly, Cheated pokemon can't be traded on GTS.

Hope this helps.

Some people have programs to make hacked Pokemon look completely legit.
no not all the time but legendary pokemon at(random) lv. 10 can't be traded(had it happen to me once)
