Hello, first time here on the forums and I'm looking to see if anyone can help me see if a Shiny Celebi I got traded is even legit, or at least legal.

  • not nicknamed
  • Level 30
  • Virtual Console mark
  • Moves (w/ proper PP) - Heal Bell, Safeguard, Ancient Power & Future Sight
  • 5IV (only Decent attack)
  • no EVs
  • OT: Velma (31121)
  • Obtained through VC Coin Case glitch

What bothers me is that I know that the ID is from a Japanese Celebi event. So if anyone can explain why this is the case, and if Shiny Celebi is legit/legal or not, I would much appreciate it! :D

Probably obtained via coin case glitch on the VC version of Crystal. Probably legit.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that it was obtained through the coin case glitch. But how to explain the TID though? Does it have to be that specific ID to transfer over or what?

Legit requires all details, including origin (as in method of encountering it) to be correct.

Legit? No.
Legal? Yes. (indistinguishable from the proper encounter)

(A lot of people mix up legit and legal, and think they're the same. They're not.)

Ah, okay noted. Pardon since I didn't know but thank you for clarifying.
