    Everyone that has Sun and Moon downloaded before release beware!

    Nintendo is now banning all NetworkIDs and consoles that have launched Pokemon Sun/Moon online in any way. After this has taken effect, you will be getting the 002-0102 error that many users have been getting and posting about which essentially means that you have entered Nintendo's jail for Pokepirates. Users are not able to buy legit copies off the eShop or even access the eShop after their consoles have been banned by Nintendo. Now many users that have banned consoles will be selling consoles with banned internet access so beware that and watch what you are buying. Consoles appear to be getting banned even if they haven't played online but just have the software, aswell. If your NNID is linked to your Wii U, Nintendo Services appear to be working.
    It was reported that if you tinyformat your banned 3DS, you can bypass the 002-0102 error unless, you link a NNID and attempt to make a purchase on the eShop.

    If someone needs a WARNING to understand that going online on a pirated copy of a wildly popular game before release might be a bad idea, then that person has bigger problems.

    Why would the console be banned? Wouldn't formatting not solve the ban?

    I've heard a few people have bans just for being on wifi while playing, but most aren't. I'm curious as to how that would happen, though.

    Or if it was played on a dummy unit. (which I did)

    Plus, 002-0102 which blocks online access is already bypassed, meaning we can already play online again,
    just can't bypass 022-2812 to go eshop to buy stuff, but not many pirates do that, presumably.

    Nope,

    002-0102 is tied to friendcodeseedB, which isn't formatted,
    and 022-2812 is tied to device ID, which also isn't formatted.

    How is Citra by the way? Apparently it needs good specs on your PC to run it. Anyways, can't say for sure it's a permanent ban, Nintendo didn't state it, when one gets that message, it's typically a 15 day ban if it's their first time getting it. So by December 1, we'll know if it's permanent or not. Thankfully I didn't go online, and I uninstalled Moon after learning the cia was built poorly.

    They're banning people with review samples? Or just cia download?

    They are banning the NNIDs and consoles from accessing internet even if you format it.

    it is said that some people with tied nnid on their wii isn't affected.

    supposedly people with review copy got caught in the crossfire, but report unconfirmed.

    18-nov japan.


    so much salt.

    You know that we already bypassed 0102 and can play online, Again?

    though, I do feel pity for people who expected nothing to happen.
    thats the true pity right there.

    actually north korea. please send help
    What's weird is I swore I only did local play with my sister, yet both of us are banned.
    We're both eventually getting n3DSes now that we've been banned, so I guess this turned out to be somewhat good for the both of us, since both our current consoles are o3DSes.

    Somwhere you can never find.
    At least this makes me a bit less disappointed that I didn't download the game early before release. with so many people already playing and spoilering, it feels like I'm joining late on the actual release date.

    Oh wow, that actually indicates that this has more to do with having it installed early rather than just playing online early.
