Title: Trading shiny locked Pokémon through Wi-Fi oversight(both Gen VI and VII)
Post by: Matt1990 on May 04, 2019, 09:09:26 am
Hello there, probably I've broke down some rules in making this thread, so forgive me for this first, probably I discovered hot water although I didn't see any threads about this there but if there is some documentation about it forgive me for that as well, I wouldn't even consider it a glitch itself but rather an exploit/oversight in the online checks. Basically, the online legality check doesn't look after if the Pokémon you're trading is inside an egg or not (however, it does check if it has legal moves/ability and such), which will actually let you trade legendary Pokémon inside eggs through Wi-Fi. By doing so, you can tweak the Egg PID's SV so when the receiver will hatch the egg it'll turn shiny if it matches. They won't be able to send it back once received though. I would record a video but my 3DS is currently broken (planning to repair it in future as it does a popping sound when turned on) but I did test it in both VI and VII 3DS Gen games when my console was working fine and it yeld the same results

What rules would those be? Anyway, this is certainly a strange shortcoming in the legality checker. I wouldn't consider it too notable (because you'd need to edit your save to get a legendary in an Egg to begin with), but it is good to have spotted.
