    So now that the game's been out a few weeks, do we know anything more about this "anti-cheat"?

    This is most likely to detect memory modification for use in tournaments or online battles. I don't see how they could detect a modification to a save and even if they somehow did they'd probably deploy that as a game update.

    not to be a dick or anything but why is this thread still open and active... that little anti-cheat hurdle has been trampled already because of Nintendo's lacking security measures

    The last comment was Wednesday until you commented. Should have left it alone.

    Is the anti-cheat even in affect? It's separate from the actual games right?

    I think the current theory is that it might be a tool to detect "cheats" in competitions. It was found in the eShop data as an application, right? So of course it's probably not something implemented into the game directly.

    People claiming it's worthless because we can still inject are being a little short-sighted.

    Only if they find a lot of illegal activity at once. People were more careful (less stupid) with this leak. So no major flag was thrown to Nintendo. If this is indeed a tool for detecting hacks, it may become required at championships and then those who participate and are caught might be banned.

    Of course, it could be nothing. Could be a scrapped idea they haven't taken down yet for all we know.

    Except most people install the .firm to the CTR NAND so they can just remove the sd card and move the game-specific data to a clean one while keeping CFW. So that would only catch the dumb ones.

    but speaking of anticheat i think its been used before
    there a game called ice station z (i dont play it much)
    alot of ppl use ntr with it so they can look good at the game and make new ppl think that too
    but whenever im online and i see someone using it the suddenly disconect
    some of my friends have had the same thing happen to them and afterwards they texted me asking how to get unbanned
    ive never seen someone online in that game with ntr for more than 1 hour

    Weird. I can understand a cheat detection system online, but again this was found in eShop data. Still, until someone gets banned all we have is speculation.

    if this new one exists then it probably checks stat changes and health values
    along with invalid moves or abilitys
    in sun and moon if you go online with a pkm that has an inappropriate name you cant battle or trade for like 6 hours
