    I previously had installed pokemon moon leaked version. Today, I uninstalled the game from the system settings then installed through freeshop. Is it safe to play online now?

    if it released officially in your region then yeah otherwise wait for 23rd.. here in Australia we already got the game released today and so far im using the one from freeshop and everything is good..i even injected my save from the leaked cia..but don't take my word for it..we all know using unauthorized content always has its risks..but just my own experience i dont have any issues going online..

    The game was already released in my country. I'm still wavering if its safe to go online given that I got my pokemon moon from freeshop

    You should be safe since it's from the eshop not leaked and if the game has already been released in your country they don't really have to reason to ban you.

    yeah i guess.. i think Nintendo just dropped the ban hammer due to the game not yet released anywhere in the world except for the devs or reviewers.. but now that it is officially out then i assume it is safe..

    Yup Nintendo even told reviewers not to go online with their physical copies and reviewers that did go online got banned but now that the game is out in everywhere apart from Europe #FuckEurope it should be safe to play online.

    can't help but try to read your comment with your avatar's voice..of course i dunno how it sounds like but from the looks of it should be a tiny shaky voice LOL.. anyway yeah it should be safe i mean it's already out..im sure Nintendo's busy counting sales right now.. :)

    In my country, Brazil, the physical game is coming in december, but it's already avaliable in eshop, so it's fine to play the game from free shop?

    Now that the game is out, can anyone confirm that the leaked cartridge > .cia is safe? or do .cias need additional encryption solved out? they didn't need private headers and the sort before due to how the conversion worked.
