    6th gen cant be hacked, so it was at some point breed.
    however, greninja were among the top 5 pokemon to be shiny breed using the shiny value trick that was around for a few weeks. in addition to that, it was an almost guaranteed clone. so its not hacked in the sense that it was created from nothing, but it is most likely hacked in the sense that its one of dozens of copies of only a single original.

    i guess you have to decide on your own, if you want to call that being lucky

    hmm so there is a big possibility that it isn't legit

    who in their right mind would wonder trade 5IV shiny anyway ?

    well, if it doesnt have hidden power fire, greninja really isn't as spectacular anymore

    ivs decide the hidden power. it needs a 30 speed iv and another 30 in atk i believe, to get fire.
    its well worth the trade-off
