PokeBank fails at stopping hacked Pokemon

The PokeBank and PokeTransporter apps, released on Wednesday, can't stop all hacked Pokemon from getting to "Pokemon X and Y," Examiner has confirmed.

Tests with apps such as PokeCreator and PokeGen have confirmed that Pokemon such as Celebi and Diagla will make it through the apps if they are created with "legal" specs, moves and abilities, but others the likes of Mew, Darkrai and Deoxys will not.

These revelations come after the apps were delayed a month for clogging up the Nintendo eShop server and over rumored security concerns.

Have you used apps such as PokeCreator or PokeGen to send Pokemon to X & Y? Did it work?
