Well I'm sure that other people have noticed this happenning as well as myself. Whilst scanning the GTS I stumbled across a few pokemon on offer under other pokemon ID, for example a diglett named charizard appeared when searching for charizards. My question if it is viable to nickname a pokemon the name of another pokemon and the GTS to trade for that pokemon instead? Also are these pokemon hacked or just nicknamed?

Hmm, my guess is it's hacked.

I believe this occurs when the pokemon in question has been traded (i.e. a Diglett for a Charizard) and the original owner has not claimed the pokemon yet.

The nickname does not determine the species of the pokemon. Hacking might work, however, the GTS generally has checks against trading hacked pokemon (try to trade a hacked pokemon).

I was looking for shaymin's the other day, and a ho-oh popped up. I was like WTFFFFF!
