    i have a quick question i have pokemon ultra moon and i haven't went in to festival plaza yet but yesterday i went online with a different game the question is will i get ban later....i already done this

    There have been reports of a wave of bans being handed out to CFW users by Nintendo. To protect yourself, please do the following steps before starting this guide:

    1. Go to System Settings, then “Internet Settings”, then “SpotPass”, then “Sending of System Information”
    2. Disable the “Sending of System Information” option
    3. Exit the System Settings
    4. Go to your Friend List (the orange Face Icon in the top row of your Home Menu)
      • If you receive an error and are kicked out of the menu, the Friend List setting is either already disabled or your console cannot connect to Nintendo’s servers (due to a ban or connection issues)
    5. Go to the Friend List settings, then “Friend Notification Settings”, then “Show friends what you’re playing”
    6. Disable the “Show friends what you’re playing” option
    7. Exit your Friend List

    Why would you think going online in a different game would get you banned, or have anything to do with USUM for that matter just because you played it? Unless you get online IN USUM, that won't be the specific cause if you do get banned. I'm seriously over this banwave avoidance crap........

    He thinks it could be an issue if Nintendo checks his Activity Log, since connecting his 3DS to the internet might have allowed them to see it with UM on his history.

    But I don't think that will be the case. If they were making a regular habit of checking Activity Logs, there would be far more bans and the big May banwave would've happened earlier.

    No, I think they will primarily be checking those who connect to USM servers early. That said, I'm so busy with real life that I can only do 1 game at a time, so I'll be staying offline anyway as that game is currently US for me.
