    Is this possible? Will they be legal? And would there be any repercussion to doing this before Pokemon Bank opens?

    Possible yes, legal? probably not. How can changes from GEN 6 to 7 be totally replicated with Pkhex before we even know what, if anything officially changes when Pokemon are imported though Pokebank?

    If you haven't cheated to gain your Pokemon in the past i'd honestly just wait.

    just curious, If hacking over a modded pokemon makes it non-legal, what exactly does that mean? what can you not do with it? does it affect the rest of the game?

    A non-legal Pokemon can't be traded or used in battles online, and in light of recent events, attempting to do so may flag you for a ban.

    ok, well I do not plan on battling online anytime. Does it just not let you trade it? can you still use it in local battles?

    Afaik, local battles/trades will let anything through. I've seen tons of local battle vids on Youtube with obviously genned/illegal stuff.

    Ok, thanks. What happens if you try to trade it?

    In local it just lets you like anything else (I think). Online, it'll tell you there's a problem with the Pokemon and it won't let you trade it.

    yea, I don't care about online features. Is anything else not mentioned earlier in the game affected by having an illegal pokemon (non-online)?

    Nope, you should be fine if it's legal or not if it's offline. You can screw around with PKHex's Illegal Mode if you really want to. But online is just a no go.

    I thought if you edited the pokemon to locations that are legal in the game you can use them online

    Not Gen VI 'mons in Gen VII. They cannot exist in Gen VII legally. Partly because it's too soon, and partly because we don't even know what changes bank will make when you do it legit in January and beyond. Right now PKHeX pretty much just imports it as in, no changes.
