Legality Checkers on Neoseeker
Here at the Pokémon Shopping District at Neoseeker, we take great pride in keeping our forum clean from most hacked Pokémon and have specialized legality checkers on-site. The legality checkers prefer a full screenshot of the Pokémon the user wants checking from PokeCheck, this will make it easier for our legality checkers to look over.

Legality Checkers are selected by the forum's moderators once they have shown a sound knowledge of Pokémon Dream World Events/Events. A Legality Checker's activity and generation available to check on is also recorded here.

Hey CrystalLaser , I would suggest adding to template, the level it is now, the place caught, and if it is shiny. It could help some people. =)

Cloud Me;
1) So did you get it from the GTS? Did your friend trade it to you? Or did someone on Neoseeker trade it to you?
2) When you say 'Hacked from an egg', you mean 'Hatched from an egg'?
3) What generation is this from? GEN III, IV, V?

It's ok, Cloud Me.
Ok, I will try and resolve your issue;

It would help me is you could tell me if you know what generation it came from?
Route 34 is in the Kanto region, so I am guessing it was bred at the Daycare center. You say the name was German before you evolved it?
I am reckon it is a legit Charizard, although there are my suspicions. So I think it is legit (I may not be correct).

I said Gen 4, not sure if thats what you mean. Charizard's Summary has nothing to say about what Gen it came from. Yep, it was german, but once leveled up to Charizard, its name went to English.
And, the reason that got me wondering if it was hacked was because it levels up so fast. Could that help?

Thanks Awsomness! ^__^

Btw, I have a question if thats alright. I got an GTS Eevee, that I got at level 1. But I know its hacked. (due to the pokeball) Its now level 87. Would it being hacked at level 1 cause it to being different?

No problem!
And not to be a grammar freak. But you said "Level is is now:" on the template...

Awsomness if it hatched from the egg, it doesn't matter what route it was at because it should be able to hatch anywhere!

Cloud Me that charizard looks alright. Probably legal at least. If you have a way of getting it on file I'll happily check it properly for you if you'd like, though it's not exactly necessary.

jolteon1996, it is obviously a hack; it can't be an Event Pokémon if it only have 1 move.
Pretty obviously, but yes, it is a hack. I have not heard of a Shiny Event Arceus (apart from TRU Arceus) but even then, I don't think they are shiny.
Where did you get it from anyway?

Arceus can only be shiny if caught at the Hall of Origin.

If this Arceus you're showing is an Event Pokemon, it cannot be shiny. If it is, it's a hack.
In addition, Gen4/5 Event Pokemon come in Cherish Balls, so if it's in some other ball such as Pokeball, it's a hack as well.

As for moves, it's alright to have only Solarbeam as the moves can be deleted through the Move Deleter, and Solarbeam can be learned as TM for Arceus.
