    ok here's my story.

    I installed the pokemon moon leaked a few weeks ago and play it just once.

    And then I uninstalled it.

    Never turn on the wifi.

    Yesterday I got the cartridge.

    Is there any consideration I must have in order to avoid a possible ban?????

    Nope you are are safe from the ban wave that happened 2 days before us release since Nintendo where only targeting people who where using online features early.Lurantus (the leaks code name) is also considered "safe to keep" by people aswell still and it's been almost a week since release with no bans.I would still be cautious though with the leak,but so far everything's safe as long as the game was released in your region you can access online features with no fear.

    You should be safe from the ban so long as you didn't leave the game suspended while having your system in sleep mode, connecting online, or using NitroStream before the game comes out in your area. (23rd for Europe)
    Also make sure you are using the FreeShop version of Sun and Moon as a precaution.

    If you want to be %100 sure, you could always buy the game.

    As long as you didn't try to access any online features before the game was officially released in your region, you are 100% fine.

    So much paranoia around these parts, haha.
