Who else thought that zygarde was INSANELY easy to get. like, we only had a cryogonal for supereffective that was NPC and STILL took it down in like 3 turns.

Honestly i would recommend releasing as there is a possibility of banning if you bring it into competetive or just doing anything online with it, but its ok to keep it in box or use it for catching

48 Anonymous4 monthsReport

thanks guys !!

47 Anonymous5 monthsReport

I already told him lol

46 Anonymous5 monthsReport

They're perfectly fine to have as long as you don't go into a competitive setting with them. It sucks that you can't at least rename them so you can have them be more personalized, but for some people that doesn't matter. I've had one for a while now, probably like two months. Nothing has happened with my game, nor have I heard someone say it caused their game to break or whatever. So no need to worry about them. Keep or release, it really doesn't matter. Hope this helped!

45 Anonymous5 monthsReport

Also they can range from all kinds of names, there's freepkm.com, MGDiscord.co, PKMGen.com, and probably much more.

44 Anonymous5 monthsReport

They're hacked, they have 6 perfect ivs too, but are perfectly fine to have. Because I've had a few hacked ones like that for awhile and my save file hasn't been corrupted or anything bad at all.

43 Anonymous5 monthsReport

Im kind of new to this, I keep getting level 100, sometimes shiny pokemon in the surprise trade named machamps.com (and another similar name) at first I was excited to get them but now Im just worried they will mess with my game. Are they bad to have, should I get rid of them?

35 Anonymous6 monthsReport

If I change the form of my shiny rotom will it continue to be shiny?

34 SniffyCanDiffy6 monthsReport

I got a shiny Meltan trading and it says that it was from Pokemon Go, but when I go into HOME to check my boxes, my other Meltan has a G on it, but the shiny one does not. It is probably hacked.

33 SniffyCanDiffy6 monthsReport

I have a suspicious Guzzlord that was caught in US/UM that is Italian and was caught in a Poke Ball and not a Beast Ball like they are supposed to be. Is it hacked or can you do that?

32 SniffyCanDiffy6 monthsReport

It is, you can also shiny hunt it by breeding it or in the Max Lair.

31 SniffyCanDiffy6 monthsReport

could not trade for the rest of the day because of that Dratini.

30 SniffyCanDiffy6 monthsReport

Watch out for link trades where they offer up Ultra Beasts or Legendaries for normal Pokemon, last night someone tried to trade me an MG.discord.co shiny Tapu Koko for an Eevee name drampa plz. Some people will crash their game because they want to disable trades for you. I was trying to evolve my Swirlix into a Slurpuff and they showed me a Pokemon named volcanon plz and I didn't have one named don't have, so I tried to send them Swirlix and they crashed their game with a glitched Dratini and I
