    I currently use a Gateway with my 3DS on sysNAND 4.4 and emuNAND on 11.1

    How do the online bans work? Does it only apply to playing Pokemon Sun/Moon ROM online? Or will I be banned for playing any game online?

    For example, would I still be able to play online with my other ROMs? The ROMs that I injected with a header (from one of my other retail games) and renamed to .3dz?

    I am curious about this also... I will be picking up Sun tomorrow night at a local game store and was going to put it on my GW... Should I be concerned?

    only for using Gateway, you are at risk of ban, or so i heard
    (repeat: i don't know much about 3ds flash cards, wait until you are sure, nobody want a ban 3ds)

    "As a result of a number of Nintendo 3DS users using unauthorized versions of several games, and connecting to the official game servers in violation of our terms of service, these users’ Nintendo 3DS systems that stored the unauthorized game code have been banned from Nintendo’s online network effective immediately."

    What exactly does it mean by unauthorized version of game? Is that referring to ROMs downloaded online (with your header injected into it)? And authorized versions would just be retail copies from stores?

    Also, do the bans only apply to people playing online before the game is released? So if I downloaded the ROM after Pokemon Sun/Moon is released, would I be safe from bans?

    inb4 ninty released a fake leak to ban everyone.....:ph34r:

    but no I guess they are basically saying pirated, but trying to avoid telling people who don't know that they can pirate
