Default What to do with these Pokemon.

Hey everyone. About 2 hours ago I went and bought Pokemon White (finally). The game was used and when I got on it the guy had tons of pokemon that were all lvl 100 and were met at lvl 1. (Obviously hacked considering some of them were more than likely impossible to get at such a low level and that they were caught with Master Balls.)

Now, considering I did not hack the game, and I will not have Wi-Fi here in the next few days... Would it be a good idea to keep them? I don't really like having hacked pokemon, and their movesets weren't very good either.

Basically to get to the point, would it be a bad idea to trade them off to my bro then have him trade them back? Or should I get rid of them?

Hmm...I can't really answer that question.

So long as you don't use them in tournaments and don't trade them to anyone else as you know they are hacked, it should be fine. Just be careful, as hacked Pokemon can screw up your game if the hacker wasn't very good (and with poor move sets and the fact he/she made it quite clear they were hacked, this seems likely) and messed with coding.

Additionally, why would the person get rid of them? Raises some more uneasy questions...


Frankly, I'd get rid of them, but it's up to you.

Keep them until you can use them to fill your pokedex, but after that just get rid of them. Hacked mons are really not worth anything game-wise.

Alright, my brother decided that he wanted them all since I was just going to toss them away. Thanks for the input. Oh, one more question now that it's on my mind. Would it be safe to breed them and use the pokemon that came from them? Or would their corrupted data affect the baby?

No, it does not affect the baby, and no, they will not mess up your game, even if you'd kept them.


They have no corrupted data, the game isn't constantly looking for "right" and "wrong" data, think of it as a form that the game is reading, it's literally just stored as:

Pokemon species:
IVs/EVs:
Met at:
Met at level:

etc, like reading off a form. The game just reads it and doesn't question it. The only time the data is evaluated for "correctness" is when going on random Wi-Fi or importing to another game like PBR, or playing in an official tournament.

I hope this has helped alleviate any fears.

Well, as fate would have it the Platinum version I bought had the three shiny legendary dogs, and that event Celebi. (Legit) So I just got my Zorua (Love it). I see that it is a male, but is it considered Legendary? Or is it just a rare pokemon? If so, any ideas on a good moveset or EV's for it?

Now I'm just confused lol xD. I personally don't see him as being anything special in terms of strength. Maybe legendary in rarity, but not in power. The only reason I want to know is so I won't feel like I'm playing dirty when I use him online.

Exclamation Re: What to do with these Pokemon.

about Zorua or Zoroark, if its in a Cherish ball then its the WiFi event..if in a regular ball then yeah its just the mischevious pkmn.

personally i myself would also get rid of said hacked pkmn. sure your dex is full and thats all you really want.. it it were in my game i'd keep them is PC boxes marked hax just so i dont mix them in with legit caught or breed pkmn until they've all been "Handled"..

congrats on your event celebi and shiny dogs..

The shiny dogs and etc. were all legit. I looked that up just to make sure. As for Zorua, that one is from the celebi event. The Zoroark I have is from the one needing one of the shiny dogs. And yes, I've gotten rid of all of the hacked pokemon. But yeah, it's not the zorua/ark in the cherish ball. So I guess it's all good. Thanks for the info.
