    BW Mall Tour plagued with hacked distribution: Wonder Guard Spiritomb distributed at San Jose mall

    A hacked Spiritomb is being distributed at the Oakridge Mall in San Jose at the BW Mall Tour. Fans are advised to release this Pokémon if received due to the nature of the event. The Spiritomb is a level 50 Shiny Pokémon with the ability Wonder Guard and the moves Shadow Force, Focus Punch, Softboiled, and Safeguard, and has an OT of "PkmnInt". The Pokémon is "caught" in a Cherish Ball, has Pokérus, and holds BlackGlasses.

    Was anyone playing this at the mall tour?

    Also, it won't ruin your game, but if you are concerned about how 1 hack will ruin your game, release it. I wouldn't release it, just for teh lulz, but either way, it just seems like someone having too much fun with a flashcard and a romhack of a legit distrobution rom.

    Most probably someone who thinks they're very clever has somehow acquired a distribution cart and has changed it to distribute this specific hack "event".

    Simple. Someone hacked a wondercard onto their game that can be shared with others.

    My theroy is someone took a leaked distrobution rom, modded it so it has a different wondercard, loaded it on a illegal flashcard, put it in a DS and thier pocket, and turned it on. In fact, there are tuts that show how to mod a deoxys distro cart by replacing deoxys with a wondercard.

    Its "Distribution" and it would be impossible or the person the leave the DS closed it is pocket as the DS has a pause function when closed also I doubt they would have to hide it because everyone else around this person would have their DS out!

    Distribution cartridges still run the event when shut, and he would just need to slip it in his pocket, since the DS Lite is small. There was a video of the tru event, but the uploader probably closed his account or got busted by the copyright police, as I can't find it.

    I like how apparently putting "SPIRITOMB is legit!" in the Wondercard is somehow not at all supposed to be sketchy.

    When the DS is actively broadcasting a signal, it doesn't pause. The image disappears, yes, but the game isn't paused.

    I've done that while walking around Toys R Us until my DS picked up the Secret Key event, and I've played Guardian Sign's temple mission and merely closing the DS does not end the communication.

    I also don't like the whole fear-monger approach the article is going into. It mentioned it was illegitimate multiple times. Not once did it go over the fact that it won't do any harm to your games (except maybe getting through a hack check in tournaments) and outright tells people to release it immediately as if its a virus out to erase your save file. And "plagued"? One stop at the tour with one hacked distribution. Hardly a "plague".

    True it is funny, at least it wasn't racist like the last fake giveaway with gengar, that one was wrong on so many levels

    ...

    Seriously?

    It really astounds me how unexplainable some people's motives are. Why would someone even do this? I'm just curious. What would the point of this be? Is this a case of trolling turned up to eleven, or was it something else?

    Also, I'm gonna have to agree with Outrage. This thing is not going to screw up your game in the slightest, and it's not smart to give out implications that it will.
