    I've done this on 1.2 so it should still work fine.

    It didn't work on mine either, so I guess they fixed it.

    Well it's a good thing they fixed the cloning glitch. If anyone could clone any given Pokemon at any given time, then the wonder trade could become over-saturated with event exclusives, thus defeating the purpose of "event exclusives" as "nice-to-have, one-of-a-kind Pokemon that mark specific events."

    While I am someone that loves to find exploits in a game, I refuse to use exploits in games that are part of a community network, where such exploits could negatively effect the overall game-play experience. A good example of this exploit ruining the game experience would be: For a given Level 100 Pokemon, clone it, and trade it for other Level 100 Pokemon. Then the vast majority of random matchups could have such high-level Pokemon, that it discourages other players from participating in the community that The Pokemon Company and Nintendo wish to create.

    Nintendo has taken steps to discourage hacking. First of all, you can easily get banned from the Nintendo Network now via Nintendo Network ID. Because you can only have one Nintendo Network ID per system, with no alt accounts (unless you have multiple systems or don't mind factory resetting your system) they hope to keep players in check. I'm even confident that if Pokemon Bank does get hacked, there will be a title update that will require Pokemon Bank to be updated to continue to function with X and Y, most likely by having another X and Y "patch update" that would block online interactions until both software titles are updated.

    Nintendo will do anything to prevent stuff like this now that there's wifi built into these 2-3DS/DS consoles.

    I reported the cloning glitch to Ninty. BUT it was after 1.2 came out (2-3 days ago), so who knows?

    Some on Youtube are still able to glitch with patch 1.2 though.

    How many sec did you do before you restart the game to get the glitch to work?

    I had a timer and the moment the animation faded out to Communicating, please stand by, immediately initiate timer and wait till it hits four seconds. A LOT of people claim 4.5, but I have a slightly delayed reflex, so I go early. It's always nice to have seven a few Xerneas on standby for occasion. :)

    Yes I did. From what I read, the 1.2 patch FIXED IT.

    What you said is that you reported it, but I know they knew and fixed it before you notified them, so.... I don't get what you're trying to say. You should re-phrase what you wrote, so it's easier to understand.

    Yes, that I understand.

    I was just saying that it's odd how some are able to still clone when that patch was supposedly fixed it. Yet, it didn't even work for me. I tried alot too. I'll have to try it with someone who hasn't updated their's yet to find out.

    I mean, if it helps, I am on 6.3.0.12U, using local wireless, and manage to have two identical Xerneas down to the stats, ID, and everything.

    The timing does need to be very precise and exact, with a tenth of a second causing errors.

    Both my Y and X are 1.2. I'm going to try it on my bro-in-law's Y version 1.1 since he wanted a shiny Charmander. So I'm going to try and clone one for him.

    It's weird though, I got it to where it'll cause an error on one 3DS while I got the other one restarted then when I get back on it, it's the same pokemon that never got clone.

    I followed this one:
