Iv always believed and saw a few sources that only legit Pokemon have that checker. And fake Pokemon don't. Isn't this true?

The blue pentagon means that the Pokemon was hatched/caught in Kalos. If your Pokemon does not have a blue pentagon, try putting it in the GTS. If you can, it's legit. If not, it's fake.

Maybe it signifies it's your Pokemon?

Like YOU PokeTransfered it, so it is YOUR Pokemon.
If you got it from the GTS then it is possible that it came from an egg, and it would have the pentagon. We just don't know for sure.
You guys are right. I truly don't know. I guess there is only one way to find out when bank comes out for America. When it does I will transfer a hacked pokemon and see if it has the checker or not. Thank you for your time!

The Blue Pentagon indicates the Pokémon to be caught in Kalos. If there is no Pentagon, it can either mean you transferred it from Gen 5, or it was hacked.
