PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I still do competitive battles on gen 4 with my friends, and one of them had a Wailord with Ice Shard and Rough Skin.
He said someone traded it to him and he believes that person got it from an event. I did some research and found no such event, but I'm still unsure. So could this be a real event (annoying to battle I might add) legit Wailord, or a cheat from some action replay device?

No event ever took place with that Pokemon.

Even if it had, event Pokemon can't be traded, so that excuse would have been false even if it did exist.

I agree with the responces I have received so thanks to every one, but I disagree with the trading of event pokemon because I have indeed traded an event shiny Entei from my freinds platinum to my soulsilver and it worked out fine.
You didn't specify if it was over wi-fi or not. You can trade event  pokemon locally, but not over wi-fi.
Haha yeah I was being to general your right, yes it was through a local trade that he supposedly obtained this wailord, but with all my research and you guys responding to my question I can put this one to bed....its a cheat wailord, so now I have to get revenge(legitly) for that wailord rape. Trust me on this you guys should be glad that no such wailord exsists its a nightmare to battle :(
Event Pokemon can be traded.

It's not legitimate.

Wailord cannot learn Ice Shard and it does not have the Ability Rough Skin.

I didn't even have to check this but, there have only been two Wailord Events and in neither Event did Wailord have Rough Skin, so your friend's Wailord is hacked.


I didn't necessarily mean yours xD. Many people do it just to persuade the asker to pick theirs because it's 'more professional'.  But I am saying that you don't need to do that, if you're certain, then just say so, then if they don't believe you include a source.
Dan is a point grubber, we all know that.
Fair enough PX, what your saying is right, I just included a source to confirm my answer :3
Shhh terlor, no I'm not, who's side are you on xD
But seriously though, Eciram you can select PX's answer (ReadyAimFire) as Best Answer, he received one less up vote than me and our answers are pretty much the same, besides PX isn't too far from getting Expert, if he gets off his lazy arse xD
Lazy..doesn't even..begin to describe..
