A Funny Thing Happened on the GTS

So last night I decided to do a little trading on the GTS. I haven't been doing any for quite sometime; most of my game play has been soft resets for a shiny TRU Darkrai.

I put up a Dialga asking for another in return. About an hour later I checked its status. I was in for quite a shock: I got a level 100 shiny Japanese Dialga which was infected with Pokérus. Without blinking, I dropped him in my shiny box and went back to the GTS, asking for another Dialga.

The second one was received within 20 minutes: level 47 and shiny!

Now, I've seen shiny Dialgas up for trade but they've always been so few and far between. And I've never been able to lay hands on a single one of them. Either the trainer is asking for something nearly impossible, or they want a hack job, or the blasted thing is already spoken for when I try to trade for it.

My gut feeling tells me that one, or Primus forbid both, are hack jobs. But I really can't be certain of this; everything about them looks legit. But to get two shiny Pokémon in one night? Unless it's a Golbat or something else "common" that seems to be a bit of a stretch.

I'm not giving them up. Ten to one I'll be keeping them, unless Prime really wants a shiny Dialga. (I'll be sure and demand his shiny Japanese Palkia in exchange. ) But in any case, they won't be returning to the GTS. Hacks or not, they've gotten a home.
