    It's hacked. The only way ranger Manaphy can be shiny is if the egg is traded to another game and it hatches shiny on the second game. By default ranger manaphy is set to non-shiny.

    Those two both appear to be OK. Can you find their exact IVs? That would help.

    I have an Arceus that I believe is hacked. It says it was caught in the Hall of Origin but its name is in English. Now, I could be wrong, but I know the Azure Flute was never released, and I'm pretty sure the glitch allowing you to access the Hall of Origin was removed from the English games. And I know that Pokémon names have a five-character limit in Japanese games, so there's no way it could be caught in the Hall or Origin and still be called ARCEUS (6 characters), right? (Well, unless both trainers had the same ID/SID and the second person nicknamed it, but what are the odds of that?) I'm almost positive it's hacked but I just thought I'd check (it worked for the Sinjoh Ruins event so I'm not too upset if it is, it just means someone wasn't being completely honest )

    you are correct the Azure flute wasn't released. I would say hacked. They probably hacked for the Azure flute. Then caught arceus at the hall of origin.
    Is there anything worse than being all alone in the night?

    Yes... being all alone in a crowd.

    It looks mostly OK, except those IVs are not legal for Method 1 (e.g. the method all Wild Pokemon use to have their IVs generated in DPPt). I'm not too knowledgeable on IVs of chained shinies. I believe their IVs are generated the same as normal Pokemon (Method 1), but there is some other process involved in determining their shinyness.

    There is a possibility that if the Magnemite was chained with a Modest Synchronizer, the IVs could be legal, but I don't think that's too likely. I think the best thing you could do is check it in legal.exe to see if the sync is valid or not, and maybe it will offer some other insights as well.

    By the way, should I be alarmed if I get "Hacked or Unknown Pokémon" for a very recent event?
    What about "Unknown GBA"?
    If it says "Hacked", it's guranteed to be hacked?

    I wouldn't put recent events in legal as it has not been programmed for them yet. Most of the events legal accepts are in the readme file. Stuff like World10 Crobat, Wifi Manaphy, Movie Celebi etc are not likely to work.

    For Unknown GBA, refer to the readme. Some legit things will always be Unknown GBA such as XD and Colosseum pokes.

    In general, if it says hacked anywhere, it's definitely hacked. Also, if you get anything 'invalid' that means a hack as well. Treat legal as a guide, though. You have to add your own common sense on top of the results a lot of the time. You can again refer to the readme for examples.

    If you have any questions post the legal.exe results and what the Pokemon is and I will take a look at it / refer other people who are knowledgeable to look at it.

    Ingame trades: Why is Steven's SID 00000? That's my Metagross (was Beldum) Legal.exe is labelling it as "Hacked or unknown", and I did the trade myself without any codes on.

    Hack checking programs are unreliable and I suggest you not use them. Hackers these days can quite easily fix up a few trash bytes to make something look legit while something like that Beldum comes up hacked. My guess is that Steven's SID is supposed to be like that, but an internet search to confirm this came up with nothing...

    Before posting in Battle Strategies, please read the rules and simple questions stickies!

    Still rating competitive teams via VM/PM, as well as accepting questions or discussion about battle strategies.
    Pro-tip: Wondercard events can't be shiny unless they're set to be always shiny like PCP.

    I won't argue that you don't make a good point. I am probably equally pessimistic about the Pokemon out there.

    However, legal.exe is not for finding whether your Pokemon is 'legit' or not. If you got it in a trade from someone you don't know, you'll probably never be able to find out if it is truly legitimate.

    I find legal to be nice to take care of noob hacks. There are a LOT of those here on Bulbagarden.

    In general you should take the results of a hack checking program with a grain of salt, and apply common sense when you can.
