A hacked Spiritomb is being distributed at the Oakridge Mall in San Jose at the BW Mall Tour. Fans are advised not to avail of this Pokémon due to the nature of the event. The hacked Pokémon is being distributed alongside fully legitimate Celebi.

The Spiritomb is a level 50 Shiny Pokémon with the ability Wonder Guard, the moves Shadow Force, Focus Punch, Softboiled, and Safeguard, the OT of "PKMNInt," and the Trainer ID of 27042. The Pokémon is in a Cherish Ball, has Pokérus, and holds BlackGlasses.

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!"

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.
