You make a very strong point, though i don't completely agree with it. Yes some events maybe just clones but not all of them. The two Keldeos i have are both serious nature & started with different stats as well as characteristics. If you think about all the possible differences - characteristics, starting stats from HP to Speed, IVs & EVs you can get close to 100,000 unique pokemon if not more so. What are the chances of finding two that are same in every way? When you clone they become exact copies in every way losing their individual uniqueness
I wasn't going to trade any of my Keldeos, i almost didn't get them. They are both from the Gamestop event I don't clone or do hacks, im trying to keep all my games legit for future tournaments. Its bad enough i have alot of hacked pokemon from the gts i have to let go I understand your reason for asking its a hard pokemon to come across.
