PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Recently I've begun to notice that a lot of the dates in Pokémon Sun and Moon are a little... off. For example, I just hatched an Eevee today (12/24/16), and when I was looking at it's summary, it said I hatched it February 28th, 2011. 2011? What? Another time I noticed it said I caught a Pokémon in 2006. I don't know if this has happened to anyone else before, but I'm wondering why?

Maybe the order of the dates are just out of order? For example, instead of mm/dd/yy it's dd/yy/mm?
Have you checked the date/time settings on your hardware?
check the date of your 3ds, Someone must be constantly changing date of your 3ds.

People are changing the date on their 3DS. The date something is caught is directly dependent on what the 3DS' time settings are.

I changed the date to test this phenomenon, and it does happen. I changed it back and the date on the first Pokemon (a Starly, in this experiment) was dated four years apart from the new one, when in fact I caught them maybe seven minutes apart. I mean, this was in DP, but it can happen in any game.

I had some idiot send me a Kyurem dated Christmas Eve 2007 back in the day when I was on the BW2 GTS.
