    Question ???Bad Egg???

    Ive never gotten a bad egg and hopefully never will, but i have a question, what exactly do they do??? Ive read many things and havent really got a straight answer:/ (im just worried that i may have some subtle hacks and when i trade them to HG/SS, when i get em, theyll turn into bad eggs and destroy my hard work) Please Answer!!!!!!

    When a Pokemon is traded to another game, it usually undergoes an internal check during the trade process to make sure all the binary settings (well, Hexadecimal, but that's beside the point) is consistant.

    A really poorly done hack will not pass this consistancy check & will be marked as a Bad Egg when it reaches the new game. Sadly, "well done" hacks can sometimes pass these checks, so just being able to trade is not always a good way to ensure the legitimacy of a Pokemon.

    So in other words, if a Pokemon comes across as a Bad Egg, not only is it a hack it is a pretty unskilled one. If you haven't been cheating, you should be fine.

    Try seeing hacks before. Because one horrible thing about them is they never ever hatch (without u no wat) and you can't release them. They are stuck in your game forever until u restart.

    Oh i thought they corrupted your save file and MADE you restart. But couldnt i just trade it to my pearl version i dont use for long periods at a time anymore? (i just use it to train guys, trade em to plat when thyere done, then delete the file and start over) im almost sure all my pokes are legit though. (as i said im a little paranoid)

    I've heard of peoples pokemon showing up as bad eggs when they copied their pokemon to PBR. No one is sure why it does this as many of the sain pokemon were normal. I do know that if it has more than 510 EVs it will show up as a bad egg but nothing else.
