    I don't see anything that explicitly means it's hacked, Shiny Zapdos from gen 1 is technically legal, however with it being Hidden Power Ice, it's much more likely that it's hacked, especially if the IVs are something like 31/even/30/31/31/31 (which is what I suspect them to be). But if it was obtained by someone really trustworthy or whoever obtained it has really solid proof, it could be legitimate. If it's from a shady person or you got it from Wondertrade or GTS or such though, it's far more safe to write it off as a hack.

    It's strongly unlikely that this Pokemon is legitimate. Virtual Console Pokemon when transferred only have a guaranteed 3 31 IVs. Furthermore, when generated in the Virtual Console, they have to have a 10 DV in Atk/Speed/Special, and one of a handful of DVs for Def. When they have all the corresponding DVs, they can be transferred to be shiny. Not only did this individual successfully SR or use the 8F Glitch (which to be fair, is still a bit sketchy though still legal), but they also were able to get RNG to give them another 31 IV and HP Ice. Unless you can get VC Proof of this Pokemon, I wouldn't trade it here.
    Terrakion has not been released in any events that make it so that it could have the Premier Ribbon. Even if it was released in any event, it would probably be in a Cherish Ball and would more than likely have the Classic Ribbon, as that is the ribbon most event Pokemon have. This is a very much a hacked Pokemon.

    Language: ENG
    Species: Lunala
    OT: There are no characters in this field, which is why I'm posting here.
    ID No.: 980721
    IVs: All 31
    EVs (optional): Full SpAtk, a few in Def and SpDef, almost 252 in HP
    Name: Lunala
    Level: 100, met at "Apparently Lv. 55"
    Pokeball: Master
    Pentagon/Cross: Cross
    Moves: Psyshock, Moonblast and Moongeist maxed, Focus Blast at 5
    Nature: Modest
    Region of origin: Alola, Altar of the Moone
    Characteristic: Somewhat Vain
    Ribbons: Alola Champ, Battle Royal Master, Battle Tree Great, Battle Tree Master
    Arrived from Wonder Trade.

    So this gal is obviously hacked, unless the Battle Royal and Battle Tree have been patched to allow fun pokemon, but the blank OT creeps me out. Can it mess with the save file?

    Pretty blatant hack. As far as I know, it won't screw with your save file. You can wonder trade it out, if you want.

    I wanted to add on to my list of hacked OTs.

    * Tapuplay.tv
    * PKSM and PKHex (Self-explanatory)
    * POKE FLEXII (Gen 6 Shiny Landorus with less than 3 perfect IVs)

    Possible hacked OTs:
    * Ka Ninja
    * Ray
    * PokeNursery
    * Charlotte
    * Arafath

    Pokemons with nicknames that prove it is hacked:
    * tiny.cc/mkl (Marshadow and tons of Shiny Aipom with that nickname)

    I am still going around looking for bad hacks.
    I have compiled an album for reference. :)

    NOTE: Most of the images don't have summaries because they cancelled the trade before I can take a picture. :(

    For gen7, I guess Ash Gren can't be rename too ? Because I just see that somewhere

    I assume it's the same as all other event Pokemon; not unless someone gets lucky with the exact same OT, ID# & Secret ID.

    I don't plan to do anything more than battles/trades with friends, and you can never guarantee if a Pokemon is hacked or not, but I received a Milotic in a trade and I'm wondering if it's legal at the least.
    It's a Shiny Milotic nicknamed Milo.
    Gender ♂
    6 IV
    Ability is Competitive
    Item is leftovers
    HP - 394/394
    Attack - 140
    Sp. Attack - 299
    Def - 194
    Sp. Def - 314
    Speed - 199
    (It is max level, and it appears to be EV trained in Sp. Atk and HP)
    Only ribbon is the Alola Champion one from beating the game.
    It says it was met apparently at lvl 1, so I'm assuming it was bred.

    Moves - Ice beam, Hydro Pump, Recover, Scald

    The only thing questionable about it is the fact it's a 6 IV shiny. You can never know for sure if a Pokemon is hacked or not unless it is yours, but is it legal at the very least?

    I definitely don't want to release it, but if anything about it is illegal/impossible I won't use it outside single player mode. Thank you.

    Looks to be legal. As long as the ball isn't something like Safari or Cherish you could probably use it with no qualms.

    Where did you get it, and what's the OT?

    The ball looks like a dive ball I think (it's sky blue with white on top), and I suppose that makes sense given it's a water type.
    I got it in a trade in Pokemon Sun, the OT is Sensy.
    I'm glad it's legal, though. I'll be able to use it for at least uses against friends and such. My bad though, I apologize for forgetting these details.
