    "Word is that Nintendo are banning people using Action Replay on Pokemon. So far the codes that have been used by banned players are:

    ‘National-Dex (After talking with Game Director)
    Catching All 493 Pokemon
    All Shiny’

    Thanks to Floyd for the tip!

    Oh well, that doesnt change the fact that players can put their cheated pkmn on GTS. i could just create a pokemon on pokesav with perfect IVs & EVs and the stats for that, make it a shiny and put it in my boxes like 200 times and i'd be the king on gts. :/

    It's just like something VALVe or EA would do.
    Oh, wow. It turns out they did.

    Hope they won't ban flashcard users, cause that would harm the Wifi Connection even more, or ?

    So you'd be okay if a bunch of people started playing whatever game you play and did this? What if you played WOW and the game just came out. You've leveled up to level 6 and everyone else you run across in the game kicks your butt because they cheated and are at level 60 already. Would that be fair? The levels aren't real.

    A better plan would have been to send all the cheaters to a different server.

    Well I hope they follow suite with other Wi-Fi games, all this cheating completely destroys the point of Nintendo WFC, I don't really care too much about Pokemon, but in stuff like Mario Kart its well annoying.

    Cheating in WoW ( or any other MMORPG for that matter ) is done different and is even more pervertic than some stupid CS:S n00b running around with a pokemon cheat. Those are cry-babies and dealing with them is like banning people with dirty faces from a clean room while all the rest is trampling in with shoes full of dirt.

    It's okay that they try to do something but banning "obvious" cheaters which every idiot on the surface of earth notices and will not play against is hardly any valuable anti-cheat mentality. Reminds me a lot on VAC/Punkbuster: lots of hot vapour and nothing behind it... especially nothing noteworthy.

    Anti-Cheat has anyways to be done on the software level and not the hardware ( aka wifi ) level. This is just big time bullshit to make yourself look better than you are. Games which allow cheating already are doomed. No way to fix this with hardware level mugging around. It's like a hydra: kill a handfull of obvious cheaters just to gain a box full of new ones.

    The only way its ok to cheat is once youve finished a game and its outside of multiplayer.

    Whats the point in buying/playing a game when you just cheat your way through it? Once you're done then cheating's cool to put some enjoyment back into the game.

    By 'cheaters' does it mean people who have gone "OMG WTF HAX!" and made themselves Lv100 pokemans with max IVs, EVs etc or does it mean people who gave themselves a Charmander?
