    Hi, I'm new to this site (and to the pokemon games) so forgive me for not understanding. I get that 500 credits = 5$, which means that 100 credits is around 1$. I see some people selling entire teams of level 100 shiny pokemon for only a couple hundred credits, which in real life would only be a couple dollars. I would gladly pay a couple bucks for those shinies, but isn't the seller getting ripped off a lot? Doesn't it take much more time to find a shiny/raise a pokemon to level 100/customize the pokemon's skills than it does to make 2 bucks?

    You assumed we actually did all that. They are generated by on a pc and transferred into the game with stats such that Nintendo cannot tell the difference between real or fake >.> GG WP.

    They are probably genned, which takes all of a couple of minutes to do if you know what to do.

    So in other words, they are hacked pokemon? Would I not be able to use these in competitions?

    You can try. I'm not sure how thorough their hack checks are though.

    Yes, you can use them in competition as long as:
    A) The genner knows what they're doing and uses the correct values (ie doesn't change BST, doesn't use an impossible meeting place; less than 3 perfect IVs on legends, etc, etc)
    B ) The movesets and abilities you request are obtainable in-game. For instance, you could purchase a Tapu Koko with Telepathy, it's HA. The game won't mind, because this is in it's data. A judge at an event on the other hand, will know that this pokemon hasn't been released yet and should not be possible to own.

    This is the difference between legit, legal, and illegal/hacked pokemon.

    Legit is a pokemon the was bred and trained in game without outside tool assistance.

    Legal means a pokemon can exist within the games parameters, and is not falsifiable. These pokemon are usable in tournaments. In fact, I'm bringing a few to the Dallas Regional at the end of the month.

    Illegal, or Hacked means the pokemon in question should not be able to exist in the game, and cannot be used for online services or tournaments.

    People usually buy some 6IV dittos to speed up the process of getting good pokemon. The pokemon hatched from the eggs are legit
