Wolfey is a great content creator, and I thought it would be a very important thing to highlight to people.
While no one yet knows why it happens, it appears that any Pokémon that originated from Gen 3 (Ruby Sapphire Emerald FireRed LeafGreen Colosseum GaleOfDarkness) and Gen 4 (Diamond Pearl Platinum HeartGold SoulSilver) does not have the code for Hidden Abilities, and therefore when they are given hidden abilities, they are been picked up as hacked on their hack checker.
Like many others, I would have assumed that the code for each Pokemon is updated upon transferring, but it might be that they... Aren't. And therefore don't have the line in their code to say that they have a hidden ability.
Hopefully they will patch this soon, but still, very scary.
