Can Nintendo see saves with obvious modifications to it?

    Specifically talking about Smash Bros. The Smash Bros editor by @RandomUser is able to edit saves but in a crude way as he says:
    So could they see it and ban me?

    Probably, kinda why my editor does not unlock much, way to crude for my tastes.

    I can't speak from experience but unless they have people looking at the hex value of each save, I wouldn't even worry about it. So get them movesets and/or equipment. And it seems that the bans are only temporary and related to using public headers for pirated versions of the games. If you own the game, I highly doubt you have much to worry about.

    But as stated above, Nintendo is all knowing and can do what they want.

    EDIT: Again, do what you want.

    But, if they make the software mask the saves and check for bad values; it would be super easy to automate.

    This is true. Again, I'm not speaking from experience. You could get banned for using Peach's Down B in For Glory at first and Mewtwo when he was first released online but I wouldn't be too worried if you add an item here or there. So it wouldn't surprise me if they had it automated but I feel we'd see more topics on the forums like, "OMG! BANNED FROM SMB4 FOR SAVEHAX~!" and such.
