Damn, Do you mean that people actually hacked the cartridge?

Not gonna lay down any conclusions, since there's many ways it can go.

Maybe someone hacked the distribution cartridge to force it to distribute to Gen 5 English games.
Maybe someone hacked the game save on that cartridge.
Maybe someone received the event via those DNS spoofing things, and the DNS spoofer doesn't restrict languages of saves distributed to.
Maybe Shiny Genesect event had a special exception (although I doubt it; this would have been raised many years ago, and thus wouldn't make it the first time I'm hearing of this).

It's up to your to decide on how this event ended up on this cart, but whatever the case, it is not legal.

Actually,I saw a bunch of eng name jpn shiny genesect movie event with ribbon(even nature and iv is legal) at online or pokemon trade.

That genesect always made me suspected that if this genesect had a special exception.

Well, people have been hacking in the Wonder Card into saves and redeeming in on an English save.
So ENG name shiny Genesect from the JPN movie event isn't uncommon.

Back in the day, a picture of the redeemed Genesect isn't enough; anyone could make it.
It was verified against people who went to the event on the spot, and taken various pictures.
These people also tends to have various different languaged cart.
As I said, if it was an actual exception, we would have heard about it (plus proper accompanying proof) ages ago.


Anyhow, I feel as though I have sufficiently answered your question.
Do you have any other burning questions?

Looks like I have to suspect that people..Thank you so much for replying.

Yeah you probably have to, if it's a gen 5 Genesect.

In Gen 8, you could get a shiny Genesect from GO, and those aren't language locked, so that's one hassle of your shoulders.

No worries.

Well, the only option of the ones you gave is someone hacked the game save on the cartridge. Shiny genesect does not have an exception, and the event isn't an option with the dns exploit, as it was an in person event for one of the pokemon movies. I'm unsure of the way it was distributed, but even if there was a distribution cart and they forced it to distribute to Gen 5 English games (which theoretically could possibly happen if someone had an english game in japan) the only thing that would be different is the main message on the wonder card. (which would be in a different langauge) The OT and the name would still be the in the same language.

Do not take offense, but your lack of understanding of how wonder card redemption works is shown in this statement.

Here's a visual that is based on the data of the card:

You're right to say that OT will remain the same. That is because it was preprogrammed into the card.

But your statement about the language it would be (hence the nickname) is wrong.

If the wonder card was redeemed on a different game save language, the mon's language would be different.
I'm not disagreeing that the case OP brought up was probably hacked anyway, I'm disagreeing with how you think those scenarios I've listed (besides DNS spoofing; I've yet to test that for myself) would not possibly bring about an English redeemed Genesect.

in Gen 5 japanese cartridge didn't have the possibility to use an english language? i know that from gen 6 is possible because a japanese game can choose english language to play so it would be legit, but don't know how it works before 3ds

No. Language choosing only became a thing in Gen 6.
