    The Pokemon company is working on getting people with Genned Pokemon banned. Not just a few, but lots of people have been banned already.
    The way they are banning works as below.



    :!: Best cause of action: RELEASE the Pokemon that are hacked/ Genned ASAP! :!:
    Failing in doing this will give you Error: 2124-4607.
    It is a combination of a console + Nintendo ID Ban.

    If the reports are correct Nintendo has the power to unban, but have strict orders not to do so.
    As they say in the Netherlands: a warned person counts for two! (So go delete those Pokemon if online play is off any value to you)

    How ban's are distributed on Pokemon Home
    Pokemon Home / SW/SH
    All pokemon with the names:
    machamps.com
    MGDiscord.co
    PkmLab.com
    PKMGen.com
    FREEPKM.COM
    PokeSale.org
    grumpigs.com

    And all of the following SHINY locked but Shiny Pokemon:

    Keldeo & Keldeo Resolute
    Hoopa & Hoopa Unbound
    Victini
    Meloetta
    Volcanion
    Magearna
    Cosmog & Cosmoem
    Marshadow

    And the Galarian Birds (Galarian Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno).

    So that sums up ALL the Pokemon that even look/ feel remotely sus...

    Can you still move it? Because all of those Pokemon are gone from Home and GTS?

    I don't see it in home. i have a basic account however. i never bothered resubscribing.
    can they check your boxes in sword or shield? i have a shiny keledo in there and i dunno where it is
    times like this make me wish for a name search function in the games
    also i got rid of a machamps. i think its the only one i have

    Ridiculous!

    It's one thing if the Pokemon is genned to cheat in online play, but this is another...

    So if I just decide to name my pokemon machamps.com that's grounds for a ban now? Without doing any cheating or genning whatsoever?

    Sounds pretty messed up to me.

    From what I have heard, just having hacked Pokemon isn't enough to get a ban for Home or in SwSh. It's requires two of these three factors:

    High traffic accounts
    Accounts that were logged into by another user/IP
    accounts that obtained illegal Pokemon

    I have a bunch of illegal Pokemon in Home from Gen 3-7 along with some from 8, and have yet to receive a ban in Home. If the two out of three factor requirement is true, it would seem they are going after people who use Home to sell Pokemon on eBay and other things like that. Also, some people are banned in Home and not SwSh, and vice versa.

    Blaines likely got hit because he even has YouTube videos showing him doing Home drops, and is apparently the only big YouTuber banned.

    I haven't watched the video but having people be banned for owning any genned/hacked Pokemon makes sense to me and I am guilty of doing so myself. What I am curious to find out is how Nintendo decides who to ban because if someone were to trade for it, which most people with hacked consoles do, there may not always be a case where the trader knows they are getting an illegally made Pokemon.

    They are already distributing Pokémon with the same names but with a space in between...
