    I have the AK2 and was wondering if I use the cheats, does it affect my gameplay, like I can't finish story mode or something or I can't play online because I cheated.

    Example: I start my file in Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. Since I don't want to waste my time leveling up, I use EXP cheats. Can I still play Wi-Fi / complete story mode/unlock everything?

    I want to know this before I start using cheats. Also, I wasn't sure what forum, so I just posted here.

    Thanks

    Depends on what cheats you use. EXP codes generally aren't game-breaking, so you'll be fine.

    The only possible problems would be the game crashing from too many codes or glitchy codes.

    Yeah. Normally, the game will have no way to know you're cheating, although I do believe some games take the time to strip obvious cheats from high-score lists and so forth (people with impossible-to-obtain-legitimately scores, say.) You probably don't want to get caught like that, but otherwise you're fine.

    Please don't use cheated pokemons online though, or use them only if you are using the EXP cheats to save time and not to create monster pokemons.

    Depends on what cheat you use. Try to use your logic and think will that cheat of yours affect story? Usually cheats like "Moving through Walls" will spell problem. I did use that cheat, defeated League Champion, and she said in Mt. ? I'm powerful too, and I forgot I didn't went there. So I can't make those people at the top disappear....

    Try not to use PokeDex cheat too, and mining cheat, otherwise you should be fine

    Most cheats are ok but I guess they kinda ruin the story.

    Yeah, I just wanted to save time by using cheats like EXP. And don't worry, I don't cheat online. That doesn't require skill. [​IMG]
