Beta: the pokécheck legality checker for generation 5

Recommended Posts

I've heard from some other people that they were having problems with "cloned" Pokemon but this one here is 100% not cloned and shouldn't be showing as having 2 pokechecks.

I just caught this yesterday and it said last night that it was unique but then today it changed to showing up twice. It definitely did not go public as well.

The name of the OT is exactly the same as one that came up as legit.

Also it has the correct hidden ability. What is up with that?

Hallo, a have a Electivire from Hoenn (Emerald) of my German White 2.

The Original Trainer Language is German but Pokécheck Found valid English Pal Park trash bytes.

Is It Legal?

There's no trash bytes possible for a totally capped name, so if it was pal parked to an english game it'd be exactly the same as a german game

nothing wrong here

Mat487: My shiny Dragonite I received from Alder's grandson is a Pokestar, according to Pokecheck, but has never done anything to earn the title and plays the shiny animation when sent out, because it is shiny. What causes this?

Says it's a pokestar shiny, but 0x87 = 0x19 (not > 250)

Upon loading up some Pal Parked Pokemon (of which I did about 22+) through an emulator only two pokemon came up with invalid trash bytes. I was able to rectify one of two by simply pal parking them again but no matter how many times I pal park the ONE Pokemon it continues to have invalid trash bytes. Any idea on why this is happening? I haven't altered the Pokemon in any way so I'm at a loss. Hopefully someone can help. I'll provide a link to the Pokemon as well.

Emulator trash bytes aren't supported afaik.

Wouldn't that have affected ALL of the Pokemon I Pal Parked than? I just went ahead and Pal parked the cleffa via DS this time and I got the same issue...

EDIT: I'd like to add that the Clefairy version of this Cleffa doesn't have the invalid trash bytes (I pal parked it over as a clefairy) would this be any indicator to why it may be doing this?

So I went ahead and Poke Transfer'd the Cleffa that was coming out on the other end with invalid trash bytes on Gen IV and to my surprise it no longer has invalid trash bytes:

Any idea as to why something like this would happen? I'm content with it resolving itself but knowledge is power I suppose so I'm interested on how this may have happened.

Trash bytes are the result of memory pointers and preexisting strings not being cleared for subsequent use. They just get overwritten and the resulting string constitutes the palparked character-string.

You can read more about them on our wiki; the first Pokemon parked will have one set of trash and 2-6 will have different trash.

Ah thanks for the link and relevant information. Very much appreciated.
