What are people's opinions on what I'd consider a "grey area" of pokemon legitimacy, that is:
A hack is used to get into an area that would otherwise be unavailable due to missing an event. The pokemon in that area is then caught as normal.
An example of this would be an English Shiny Mew. If someone hacked the old sea map to get to faraway island on Emerald (as far as I know the event was only available in Japan years ago), then soft resetted until they found a shiny mew and caught it without using any hacks/cheats, would you consider this pokemon legit or not?
The pokemon itself hasn't been hacked, but the ability to get it has. The only time an AR would be used throughout the whole process is to get to the locked area, but nevertheless and AR has been used. It's this grey area I'm interested in hearing people's opinions on.
