Hacking In VGC has always been a heavily debated topic. I wrote this not to enrage Verlisify like this might end up doing but to state my opinion on why hacking is not a large problem. First off lets look at the last year of Pokémon VGC. There was A HUGE NUMBER of confirmed hackers at events. I mean it’s no secret people were genning their mons. People even went as far as posting on twitter. Which brings us to our first point. People running these events don’t really care. If they did. People would be getting kicked out of these tourneys left and right. It because they understand our second point. It doesn’t give hackers a big advantage. There is still so much RNG and Skill that go into a Pokémon battle that means even hacked mons can get crushed by a good player. (Assuming their stats aren’t hacked to be OP. And doing so will get you kicked out fast. Even the horrible hack checks they have can detect that.) The only hacking in VGC that truly annoys me is when users change there Pokémon’s IVs between matches. This truly does give an unfair advantage. It is for these reasons I doubt we will ever see much done about Hacking in Pokémon VGC.
