Beta: the pokécheck legality checker for generation 5


xfr

Recommended Posts

I'd like to report that the LA lists False Swipe (an Egg Move in 3rd Gen) from any Shroomish purified from Pokémon xD: GoD as a Hacked/Event Only Move, which instead should be shown like "Colo/XD Exclusive" or something like that, as with many Egg Moves learnt by a lot of Colosseum/XD Pokémon after purification.

Pokémon in question:

My breloom's Technician ability and Bullet Seed were marked illegal, although they are both legal (Technician is a Hidden Ability, Bullet Seed can be learned through breeding.) Focus Punch is also marked "illegal" on it, even though it can also learn that move through breeding: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=6795088

The Pokémon in question no longer exists, but if it's what I think it is, the legality analysis is working as intended.

I checked this Rayquaza a few levels ago and now at lvl 56 it's saying the PID is "hacked (valid spreads: 30/30/25/5/2/17, 4/0/16/26/1/0)". With the time I spent finding it, and the multiple checks I've done, I'm wondering if this is something I did this time round to cause this https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=6878756

Never mind, all the pokemon I moved from Pearl have the same problem :/ chalked it up to bad game pak

Few false positives and weird things.

https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7576043 - this Metagross shows up as if it were caught as Metang. Caught at Lv. 55, still at that level. Plus, shaking patch can't contain Metang, only Metagross.

https://www.pokecheck.org/?p=detail&uid=7553015 - Dream Ball shows up as if it were an Apricorn Ball, even though the Pokémon's OT is from Unova. Also, Shiny.

https://www.pokecheck.org/?p=detail&uid=7555776 - Shiny Meloetta is not valid.

I am getting a hacked notice due to IV spread but the IV spread matches the first possible spread in the warning. Raikou: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7619513

The legality analysis is wrongly assuming that it's method K, not method 1. In most cases there is no issue, but method K doesn't include all method 1 spreads. This is also the case with method J.

Hi all,

I have recently used pokecheck for testing of my pokemons from my pokemon black2 and hgss game. However, I encountered this when i uploaded my scyther caught in hgss into pokecheck.

https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7763157

It says under location: Possible method J/K slots don't match encounter.

The scyther is not altered and is legitimately caught in the National Park of Soul Silver. May I know what that error means? (ignore the date caught as my DS date was not set properly)

Hello,

I had two false positives on my german event Giratina and Palkia, I guess the event is missing in the database because I got it there.

Giratina: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7770346

Event for Giratina (see Europe): http://serebii.net/events/dex/487.shtml

Palkia: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7770353

Event for Palkia(see Europe): http://serebii.net/events/dex/484.shtml

EDIT: I looked up other Pokemon with this ID in the Pokecheck database, seems every one of them which isn't english/SOM2013 are tagged invalid.

Dialga seems to work normal in all languages, see user tootie a few posts before me

The method behind the Bug-catching contest isn't entirely known, so that kind of things happens sometimes.

Looks like those two Wondercards have to be added to the database.

Alright, this is probably a bit off topic, but I'm not exactly sure where else I can put this. Also as a heads up, I'm using a third party hardware to rip my save, and pokegen to rip the .pkm from my save to upload to pokecheck.

PokeBank is actually blocking some pokemon that are pokeshifted via pokecheck, but they can go through like normal if pokeshifted on the actual hand hold. I'm not sure if it's how pokecheck is shifting them or what not, but I figured it'd be worth mentioning.

For example, my ID RNG abused nicknamed Raikou, Rak'shiri.

4th Generation: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7851072

5th Generation .pkm that was shifted via pokecheck: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7851073

5th Generation .pkm that was shifted using my DS: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7851445

I knew something was up when my friend who RNG abused that ID to nickname our Raikous was able to go forward, as well as her RNG abused ID Keldeo with a nickname. As a test, I shifted both a crown Entei and crown Suicune both on pokecheck and on my handheld. They were able to go forward with no problem, but they are from the Gamestop ID (and not nicknamed). I tried to upload the Suicune and Entei .pkm that were shifted on my DS, but they wouldn't appear in my box. ((I assume because they are identical in every way. Raikou does upload though, even though it appears identical so I'm baffled on that one.))

I did some other additional tests at the suggestion of Dewey911, and this also did not go forward: https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=7048977 This is also a WIN2011 pokemon.

I did not have any problems with other pokemon from my Soul Silver. Just this Raikou and that Celebi I tested for science.

Edit: Actually, I realized last night that I didn't actually transfer the Celebi (I thought it was a Gen 5 .pkm). Celebi does go through when pokeshifted on pokecheck, the Raikou still won't that was pokeshifted. Mmm... Not sure what else I can really test.
