It's legal as far as I'm concerned, but I can't say 100% for sure that it's not hacked.

Hi, I have a question with this
Hacked, lvl 50 is too low for Sinnoh Zapdos. But in the future post the exact IVs, there are plenty of IV calculators on the internet, there's no excuse for not being able to figure out the IVs of a Pokemon that's already lvl 50.

Potentially legal, but without the exact IVs the verdict doesn't mean too much (even less than normal). If you can't verify the source (i.e. it's from a passerby), I'd be very skeptical.

Just thought I'd point out that the obtained date means almost nothing, because it is very easy to change the date on the 3DS. I myself have a bunch of stuff that says it was obtained in 2031 as a result of me forgetting to change the date back after using my 3DS for RNG abuse
I know this, but normally people don't change it. In this case the problem is that the receiving date is very near us, and, as I think, maybe that the person who hacked that didn't care that was a local event and also thought that receiving an In-game event sets the date to the current 3ds date so he tried to let people think it is legit. So I think it is legal, but not legit and created with Pkhex.

Legal, but probably edited. There's no way to say for certain (unless you can trace its origins), but it being from a Wonder Trade makes it highly suspicious; I'd assume it's hacked.

There was a deleted Reddit account with OT Beto offering a Dive Ball, HA Froakie; it could be a coincidence, but kinda makes you wonder if someone edited that one.

Welcome to Smogon!

The Kyogre is hacked, but in the future please post the exact IVs and try to avoid double posting. :) The "ID No." refers to the TID here, but posting additional info such as the PID and/or SID is always appreciated.
how do you know it's hacked here? The ones I didn't list for IVs are 31.
