    Default GTS pokemon?

    We all know in GTS its a risk looking for a pokemon. The other day, I found a Snivy but when I checked its iv's at lvl 1, they were mostly 31's with a 29 speed IV. If I breed it with a legitimate in-game ditto, is the result legit? I don't want to risk breeding it if its an illegal way of breeding a pokemon. I also plan on releasing it

    If I got that Snivy off of the GTS I wouldn't think it was a hack. The fact that it has a 29 in speed just says to me that the person breeding it got the undesired speed with a set of incredible IVs.

    For future reference though, breeding a hacked Pokemon will result in illegal offspring. (At least in us purists' eyes )

    I don't think breeding a potential hacked Pokémon would lead to illegal offspring. 3 out of the 12 IVs pass, so the offspring will not carry all the hacked IVs.

    I am curious how you checked the IVs at level 1?

    True, but wouldn't it be easy to get the specific IV that you would want? Like if you're breeding for a physically offensive pokemon, wouldn't breeding from a parent with perfect (or near-perfect) IVs still just make it a lot easier to get that one trait?

    It would make it easier to get a select stat. However I have a collection of Ditto that have 31 in one stat, so I can just as easy get my IVs from my collection. It would be the same as finding a random with that stat, just skipping a steps.

    I basically just used the raw stats it had when I got it at GTS at level 1. I used Serebii's IV calculator. I didnt breed it yet cus I didnt know if it was legitimate or not and I didnt want to risk anything

    Did you take him to the IV guy in Nimbasa city? At level 1 it is even hard for a calculator to give exact IVs.

    I did and the guy told me it may have potential 31's in HP, SpA, Attack, Defense, and SpD. and that it "worked hard" in its speed. so im suspecting a potential 29 in speed

    It is probably 31/31/31/31/30. Its a preferred hack to get the hidden power Ice.
    Any results from breeding or training pokemon using hacked/cloned pokemon, items, masterballs, TMs, etc. is also considered hacking as it is fruit from the forbidden tree.
