Don't know how many of you will see this, but apparently there is a bug where Pokemon transferred from Gen 4 thru 1, IF you used the Ability Patch to give it it's Hidden Ability and you try to enter a Raid, the game will bricked the Pokemon flagging it as a Hacked/Illegal Pokemon even if it isn't, so you will never be able to use it online, unless they fix this error.

That's interesting!
It's not the first time that something like this happens... if I remember well the shiny Zeraora used to have the same issue :yeahyeah: (that was fixed later) so I think they will fix it (dunno how much it will take :noone: :alone:)
