    Well you have to make sure that it looks like a legal Pokemon. I'd go to a site like Bulbapedia and create a Pokemon based on what you see there. I'm not sure what the online checks check, but it obviously won't let you fight with a Magicarp with Giga Impact as one of it's moves.

    There still can be problems with the Pokemon like giving it a move that it can't learn on that level. If you can, describe the Pokemon the best you have the best you can.

    Ok so I got a magikarp I edited it to make it a heracross I changed the lev el to 100 the ivs to 6 amd edited The EVs as I saw fit and gave it moves that smogon said it would be good with then I exported the save and went on my game but when I tried to battle online with it it simply didn't work so I went and brought the her cross to the daycare bred it and hatched its egg and edited the hatched one and then it worked perfectly fine @Just Passing By

    Makes sense. Obviously the game-generated Heracross would work because it was legally made and you only changed certain attributes that the game wouldn't have a problem with.

    Tbh, if you really want to create new Pokemon without a huge hassle, just download PKHex and edit your save on your computer. The problem with PCHex is that it doesn't have all the functionality that PKHex has and that's what's messing you up.

    The species editing function of PCHex is unlikely to generate legit pokemon for various reasons. I would suggest to not use it if you want to take your pokemon online. There are other ways to inject legit pokemon in your savefile (look at PKHex)
