yeah, the whole thing is really ridiculous. anyway, glad you like the poke, too.
btw, did you see my announcement about this being the last week before black and white comes out? if i might make a recommendation, check there often on friday. one of the things for download is going to be extremely special. i mean special to the point that probably no one on smogon, secure, pokemonGTS, projectpokemon, serebii, or probably any other pokemon site has ever seen a real one before. that special.
i did a bunch of togepis and shellders on the same day and i stupidly tried using pokegen 3.0b15 thinking that maybe i could just use 1 pokegen version instead of 2 different ones.(b15 for b/w and 2.312 for 4th gen) well, pokegen b15 broke the pkms and i didn't notice until later when i was looking at them in 2.312. btw, if that guy says he used b15 in a 4th gen game and had no issues, he's most likely lying. b15 went as far as removing the pokedex from some people's save games(mine included) because it didn't fully support gen 4.
the manaphy wasn't a problem extracting, i was just lazy and didn't trade between dses. because i hadn't, it didn't register properly and the manaphy was listed as met in pokemon ranger, which is wrong. a traded, hatched manaphy should be listed as "link trade". my second one that i did later to make up for it is listed as met through a link trade.
i've said all of this on multiple sites now. to be that obtuse you would have to be trying.
oh my god, please ask him which ones are heavily edited. this is gonna be great.
he's just making things up as he goes, it's really pretty amazing.
btw, i don't doubt that some of it is to "preserve value" for other people. i've seen a few threads in various places where people are like "don't be like mat! don't give stuff way! it devalues it!" so, him calling it hacked helps out people on pokecommunity and wherever else, also. unfortunately for him, most everyone i've ever dealt with knows to trust me over some asshole from pokecommunity randomly calling things hacks.
it's funny actually, because i was on there awhile back and i offered original copies of any of my stuff to check against hacks because i was nervous about people taking advantage of my good reputation. i pretty much got laughed at by the guy in charge of checking over there and told that i thought too much of myself, was completely full of myself, etc. not 2 full fucking days later did hacks with my info start showing up. i really can't stand them. they also have one of my giratinas listed as a hack for no reason, as there's nothing wrong with it. i asked why it was on their dumb list and got ignored.
