Okay so there are only a few but watch out for them

 

(this post will be edited if nessicary)

 

 

 

Name Swap.

 

Signs: Very obvious. For example, I saw a Ho-oh named Reshiram or a Lugia named Mew.

 

Effect: I hear how it works is they have the same attacks as the real deal, but when it happens your game crashes. Usually it is not completly deadly.

 

 

 

Egg Bomb

 

Signs: Not much. Just if anything looks suspious don't take an egg.

 

Effect: Your game will crash. This is usually the resault of skilled virus hackers who seek to make trouble or trying to make legendary eggs.

 

 

 

Poke'rus

 

Signs: Again not much. Our research was not able to find anything.

 

Effect: Well let me start out by saying this is an IV (intenional virus). They know anyone would do anything for pokerus. It will usually have no good effect on your pokemon and then crash your game. IT may also happen when trying to hack pokerus.

 

 

 

Not All that Glitters Is Gold!

 

Signs: Shiny pokemon that are not usually shiny

 

Effect: They will be unusable. This is usually the effect of Game Shark Or Action Replay

How do you do name swap anyway?

 

 

 

Oh, and said Ho-oh named Reshiram is on the Reshiram section, no?

 

 

 

I've been messing around with PKM files and released a few of those pokerus things.

 

 

 

It'll freeze when you view the summary screen, in your party it'll show something like 7/1 HP, and when you view your party, on the tiny little thing showing if you have a a hold item and your HP, next to the hold item icon there's a pink box that looks like: [PKRS] instead of on the large summary screen.

 

 

 

Happens randomly when using PKM files.

 

 

 

Hope I helped.

leaderdragon.png Wut? Before you send the poor Pokemon users into a panic you might want to look into things. Pokerus is harmless in fact it just allows you to train faster it's part of the same nothing more or less it's just an item you can't take off.

 

 

 

The name change glitch is a glitch to due with the GTS itself it's not the users fault it's just a really common GTS glitch.

 

 

 

The Egg Bombing however is very real as are the hacked Pokemon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pokerus-Unlike other status ailments, Pokérus cannot be healed at a Pokémon Center or with any status ailment healing item, and can only be obtained by the Pokémon in question once. When a Pokémon has the Pokérus, it gains double the effort values from battling (i.e., fighting a Magikarp will give two Speed EVs, rather than one). Effort points gained from vitamins are not doubled. The infected Pokémon can infect other Pokémon with the virus for a period of about two days. However, the Pokérus timer can be delayed by several methods including placing the infected Pokémon in a PC box.

 

In short not a threat to the users game.

 

 

 

Egg Bombing-

 

Two people trade in the live GTS where about one is up to no good. They trade the person an egg that they very well know is bad in short the HEX inside it is most likely 0 meaning it's an egg with nothing in it. The Egg is traded over to the unknowning person and upon hatching it the screen turns blue.

 

You've been set up to bomb.

Arune, I have had some messed up pokemon have a pink rectangle that said [PKRS] next to the small icon saying you have an item on the party viewing screen. It would freeze as soon as you viewed their summaries, you can only get it by messing around with PKM Files, but I know it appearing there is not normal.

 

I wouldn't be amazed if it is able to be traded on the GTS.

leaderdragon.png Pokemon Black and White has a safe to fail trigger via the PC by placing a Pokemon into the PC 5th gen only the PC will correct whatever is wrong with the Pokemon however it's numbers will still be the same inside so it's hacked but no longer harmful and safe to trash via the PC.

Actually I don't think he was saying that the PokeRus itself is the danger, it's the pokemon that was hacked to have the pokerus that will hurt you.
