A hacked Spiritomb is being distributed at the Oakridge Mall in San Jose at the BW Mall Tour. Fans are advised to release this Pokémon if received due to the nature of the event. The Spiritomb is a level 50 Shiny Pokémon with the ability Wonder Guard and the moves Shadow Force, Focus Punch, Softboiled, and Safeguard, and has an OT of "PKMNInt" and the Trainer ID of 27042. The Pokémon is "caught" in a Cherish Ball, has Pokérus, and holds BlackGlasses. The hacked Spiritomb is being distributed alongside the fully legitimate Celebi.

The hacked Wonder Card consists of a message saying "Pokémon International's Surprise!" and a grammatically-incorrect description of "SPIRITOMB might be hard to hit but really packs a wallop! Its as if this Pokémon has a Wonderful shield around it that Guards against most attacks! SPIRITOMB is legit!" NOTE: This Spiritomb is not legit; the Wonder Card line is the hacker's attempt at legitimizing the event.

This hacked event is very similar to one that occurred at the Nintendo World release party for Pokémon Platinum, wherein a hacked Gengar and a hacked Eevee were distributed.

Just to clarify, this Spiritomb is NOT legitimate, and any players who has downloaded one from the tour should release it immediately.
