For one, the whole point of raising Pokemon is to start from the bottom. It’s how you train them that makes them strong for you or not. Cheating your way through is what takes the fun out of it. All Pokemon have different stats and different nature’s, and changing them from what they are originally caught as is dumb. Catching legendary Pokemon is only fun when caught properly, and not by hacking into the Nintendo system.
If you are in this position, please do not attempt this workaround, as there’s a high probability you’d be screwing an innocent buyer out of a working system. In the meantime, let us know if you’ve been banned from Sun and Moon ’s online functions or whether a certain Pokémon can’t be used in battle in the comments section below. According to Serebii, The Pokémon Company has announced that 5954 Pokémon players have been banned from Sun and Moon’s online functions.
@ John doesn’t, if you think it is dumb, then you don’t have to play it. But keep your dumb un necessary unfriendly comments to yourself. If you can’t say anything nice, then keep that pie hole shut. It is by a person’s choice to play for as long or as little as they want.
It seems that many pirates of Sun and Moon are experiencing difficulties accessing the eShop and other online features. Some players are suggesting intensive workarounds, such as purchasing a new 3DS, swapping out the console’s info with that of the banned system, and returning it to a retailer.
Before launch, a leaked ROM of the game surfaced online, and players were threatened with bans if they activated their illegally-sourced version online. There are various ways to edit Pokémon via hacking methods. You can make a Pokémon shiny, max out its stats, change its Ability/ Nature, and teach it moves it normally can’t learn. This leads to many people using overpowered Pokémon in online battles against people who caught and leveled their team legitimately DS ROMs. Winning this way clearly isn’t fair, and Nintendo is putting their foot down about it.
