Top 10 Hackers

Several trainers in Pokémon history have used Pokémon that are clearly hacked, whether they're underleveled or know moves they shouldn't. Here are the worst offenders.

1. Lance

It started in RBY. Lance's levels were fine... but his Dragonite knew Barrier, which it can't even learn. And in GSC, not only did his Aerodactyl have Rock Slide (which it couldn't learn at the time), he used THREE UNDERLEVELED DRAGONITE. Matters did not improve when he used a level 40 Dragonite in the tag battle against the two Rockets in HGSS. Someone's got Pokésav out again...

2. Norman

While not as bad as Lance and his three underleveled Dragonite, Norman does have two underleveled Slaking.

3. Ghetsis

His Hydreigon is at level 54, a full 10 levels below where Zweilous evolves. That's hacked, even by Lance's standards.

4. Wattson

Wattson, like Norman, uses two underleveled Pokémon- Magneton and Manectric.

5. Winona

Her Altaria is at level 33. Not only is it level 33, it also knows Dragon Dance, which it can't learn until level 40.

6. Mars

Her Purugly is very underleveled in the first battle- around twice as much so as Ghetsis's Hydreigon.

7. Jupiter

Her Skuntank is at level 20 in the first battle. Not as bad as Mars, Winona or even Ghetsis, but still pretty bad.

8. Iris and Drayden

These two both have a level 43 Haxorus.

9. Brock

Just found this out- in HeartGold and SoulSilver, his Rhyhorn (which should be a Rhydon, considering that it's level 51) has Sturdy, when Rhyhorn can only have either Rock Head or Lightningrod.

10. Falkner

His Pidgeotto is at level 9 in GSC and level 13 in HGSS, though it's not as bad as it would be with Pidgeotto being available at that kind of level in Viridian Forest.

Dishonorable Mentions

Burgh (level 21 Whirlipede)
Maxie/Archie (underleveled Camerupt/Sharpedo in the first battle)
Grimsley (level 50 Bisharp)

    Perhaps it was inherited via breeding?

    Lance's dragonite could have evolved due to exposure to the "evolving rays" at the Lake of Rage

    This reminds of this.

    You have to admit, a lot of Pokemon Trainers are cheating bastards...

    Pidgeotto could also be found in the Viridian Forest in RBY at a very low level (I think it really only applied to Yellow, can't remember anymore), but I remember you could find Pidgeotto at level 9 there at the time.

    Edit: Haha, I didn't even notice you mentioned this. Was Pidgeotto available for capture in the GS HGSS version of Viridian Forest, if you can honestly call it that?

    Would this really qualify as cheating/haxing?

    You mean, if two Altaria possessing Dragon Dance breed, the resulting Swablu would have it? Didn't work that way until Diamond and Pearl. Besides, Swablu can't learn Dragon Dance, anyway.
