Legality of Self-Caught Pokemon XD PokeSpot

Recommended Posts

Hi. So for context, back in 2009 I was obtaining a self-caught Distant Land set and I was getting other people to turn them into .pkm files for me, since I wasn't able to do it until I got my DSTT in 2010. In this case, I Pal Parked 6 Pokemon from Gale of Darkness on November 5 2009, and had them turned into a file on November 10. They haven't been changed or modified since then, since the modification date on the file still says November 10 2009, and I still have the email from the person who filed them for me.

I took a look at them a few days ago, and there are two of my self-caught Distant Land that give an Encounter Type PID Mismatch error, a Wooper and a Surskit. Both are PokeSpot Pokemon, but a PokeSpot Aron from the same file batch shows a correct PID Type. I know that means my Wooper and Surskit are hacked, because RNGReporter can't find a matching seed that I caught the Wooper and Surskit on. My question is, how did it become hacked if I caught them and transferred them?

Here's a screenshot of Wooper:

Hi. This is a known issue I raised. It requires more research so for now it isn't going to be resolved, but don't worry about your pokemon not being legal. They should be fine.

Great, thanks! It's just weird how most of my set is fine except for those two.

Yeah it's an issue PKHeX has with the pokespot pokemon. Something about the way they are generated in the game is hard for PKHeX (at this time) to determine if they are legal.
