The Legality Question/Check Thread

I've been working on a Living Dex for every generation of GB/GBA/DS/3DS games from 1 to 7, and I admit to using PkHeX to generate those I can't catch in my chosen versions, though they are all as legit as possible and aren't tripping any hack-flags. My question regards the OTs and ID numbers. If a Pokemon in, say, UltraSun is flagged as being from UltraMoon and isn't marked as an egg but still has my UltraSun OT and ID, is this going to set something off when I send them to Bank and then to HOME?

This is an english forums, please write in english language accordingly. Use a translator if needed.

Anyways, this FAQ should answer to your questions.

Is cloning a mon considered legal? For example, if I transfer a Calyrex from Sword to Scarlet via HOME, then duplicate it in PkHex, will HOME flag it as illegal if I send back only one copy of Calyrex in HOME?

E.g.:

  • Calyrex A and B in S/V game(s)
  • One of both in HOME, the other in a S/V game

Thank you.

Hi, new poster here. I have a Shiny Typhlosion that I've carried from Heartgold all the way to Ultra Moon. I'm planning to transfer it to Violet soon, but PKHex has flagged it. I don't want to risk being banned from Home or Switch Online, so I thought I'd ask for any tips here. I've made modifications in the past, so that's probably what's getting flagged. Any tips on what I should be trying to fix? Generating new PIDs hasn't helped much.

Hi again Project Pokemon Community

I'm trying to recreate the Secret ID of the attached Pokémon because it was wrongly modified in the past. Secret ID, IV and characteristics are not the original ones. I have only the right OT, ID, nature, game version, place and original level. Are the values I have enough to recreate the modified ones? Could someone give me a hand on this one or give me some steps for fix it?

When I try to generate a Gen 9 Vivillon with an Archipelago Pattern, I get the error message "Invalid: Unable to match an encounter from the origin game." The met location is one where Vivillon spawn, and the met level matches the level of the spawns. The only reason I can think of for why it returns an error message is that I would need to tell PKHeX that there was an active postcard effect, and if there's a way to do that, I don't know it.

Creating things from scratch is a bad idea; Vivillon cannot be wild captured with a Normal tera type.

Familiarize yourself with the Encounter Database, and create new things from the templates in there. Manually modifying something else into what you want requires you to make all the necessary changes, which you didn't do.

From what I can understand PKHeX uses Wishmaker Jirachi Reverse Method 1 to calculate PID for Gen 3 events like 10ANNIV mons, Aura Mew or Space C Deoxys. At least as long as I use that method they are always legal according to PKHeX. Has this method been confirmed as the one used for Gen 3 events? Because I had a brief read of this thread from years ago and there doesn't seem to be a clear answer.
