So this is a different shiny giveaway than last time, by a different person. This didn't say on the giveaway if they were hacks or not so I asked first. The person said "they're hacks, but they're still legit", & said that game recognizes them as legit. So anybody care to enlighten me on what this might mean?
Pokemon cannot be hacked and legit at the same time. However they can be hacked and legal instead. Legal means it passes all possible hack checks and is not recognized as a hack by the games, Pokecheck, etc. However, legit means it was actually caught or obtained in game without the help of an Action Replay or an editing program. So legal or not, they are still hacks and cannot be traded here on PokeCommunity.
