    People has done fuck up.

    http://serebii.net/news/2017/26-January-2017.shtml

    Official report in Japanese


    Seems like bans are issued based on Trainer info modification, Item modification and overworld modification, not Pokemon Modification, hacked pokemon owned or Hacked Pokemon traded (If the pokemon are read by the server,are hacked, and are captured by you then there's a fair chance that you get banned). Still not sure if battling with hacked Pokemon can issue a ban.

    Bans seem to be Global Link bans and not Friend Code bans.

    Ugh, rough but fair I guess.
    The only thing I'm worried about is if an injected save from the early leaked version will be treated in the same manner.. I haven't "cheated" by importing pokemon or items but I did play the game before it was released before transferring the save file to a legit cartridge.
    Curious to see how this turns out..

    I only used the NTR cheat for Sun, I hope that doesn't count. Besides I haven't linked the game to the online stuff, so I should be good. Don't even use those online stuff anyway

    Once it's discovered what qualifies for a ban, it won't matter anyway, but I'm sure that this will serve to make Rating Battles / Game Sync a lot less popular.

    You should be safe then, It's about abnormal data like >255 of an item or Pokemon with weird abilities and moves with legality check run over or even non-alola-Pokedex pokemon used or got before Pokebank

    I traded about 3 boxes full of solgaleo, lunala and tapu clones. Probably banned but whatever, I haven't played SM in weeks, didn't even finish the game. If I ever need a pokemon I'll just inject it lol

    It'd be interesting to see if you are banned

    Ehhh, the criteria is still the same probably (going to Battle Spot Rated with mons that are illegal in BS's way of being illegal), as is the method for self-unbanning.

    But these seem to be Global Link bans, I could be wrong, though. Could be friend-code bans (Seems more plausible)

    I did something similar, I traded away many Solgaleos, Lunalas, Tapus, etc. on GTS and nothing happened to me, it seems that as long as your Poke is accepted and it goes away, the most likely bet is that you're safe

    ontopic: Not like I could use Global Link anyway, whenever I tried to access the site the thing just reset'ed on me and I wasn't able to use it, not only with me but this is happening with several users of the website, even for those who don't even know how to hack a Pokemon game, so I kinda gave up at using GL at this point, best thing to do is to ask someone to battle with you or just do a free battle on battle spot, seems like a better choice to do in the long run anyways

    "Anyone who has a [sufficiently] modified Pokémon, even if they never use it online, deserves to be banned for ever."

    Okay then.

    I believe a Global Link ban is more likely, given that it's been said to specifically impact "Game Sync, entering in Rating Battles and Battle Competitions, and participating in Global Missions", but Free Battles have not been mentioned.

    You can't justify cheating.
    Modifying data from pokemon goes against their TOS.

    Well, it's 090-0212 "The service has been discontinued" one and ORAS had 090-0211 "The service has been discontinued" one. Having two different error codes for two different gens is fair enough IMO. Anyway, there's one person I know that is using this method to unban herself rn. We'll see how it turns out.

    I believe people have the right to use their games in whatever way they wish, as long as it doesn't affect other people. If it doesn't affect other people, then I don't consider it to be cheating (I don't care if you or Game Freak do).

    Plenty of things go against plenty of TOS (modifying consoles, anyone?), but, to me, that doesn't justify (morally speaking) banning them. That being said, I have no intention of getting into a 'morality of genning and banning' argument.

    too bad they can only ban you if you mess with your save after a gamesync.

    How do they check who "altered save data"? If they really check against save data modification, I'm ok with it. If they check for illegal stats or whatever, some unaware people could get banned by getting a hacked pokemon by trading...

    but its not a matter of morals.
    its a matter of : you can go online if you abide by the TOS.
    if you don't, you dont
