I'm curious about the experiences people have had with editing their Pokemon Sword and Shield saves on CFW, and what they have or haven't gotten banned for. The primary reason I would want to edit my save is to change my trainer's ID number, but that'll probably be a ban I would imagine because you can't naturally change the ID number.

I haven't been keeping up at all, is nintendo being vigilant with save editing these days? if so, how vigilant?

are bans instant? are there types of bans? how do I know if I've been banned?

I've edited pokemon for my own use but I don't go online or trade pokemon. So I'm just on single player and I've been fine.

Any type of hacking is liable for a ban. As for how quickly they are distributed, it varies immensely from less than a day to more than a year. There are different types of bans. And the easiest way to check if you're banned is by trying to use the eShop.
