Play online safely using Pkhex

What's the best way to play online safely using Pkhex? Thanks for your attention! 

What I do is run atmosphere for 9.1.0 and change over to customer firmware.  Then I'll run a backup in Checkpoint and then use FTPD to transfer the save to my PC and use PkHex to make changes.  Finally I run Checkpoint again and Restore the changes to my Switch save.  I open up Sword/Shield and double check everything took effect,  Once I know that my changes are in game, then I'm done.  I turn my Switch off.  Not asleep, not a restart, OFF.  While it's off I put back all my stuff I needed to run atmosphere (USB-C cable, jig, etc).  Then I turn it back on, I go to Settings and double check I'm back on stock firmware 9.1.0.  Then I'm safe to get into the game and go online.  Hope that helps.

Running cfw and any homebrew on sysNAND is not safe at all

i do all my editing (all passed legal check in pkhex) on my airplane mode sysnand then use checkpoint to move the edited save, then reboot to ofw and voila more shinies for me... been doing it for 3 months now and never had any issues at all.

Wait so what sorts of stuff do you use your CFW for? Just PKHex and pkm or other CFW features as well?

I'd say 90% of my pre-ban CFW time,  my switch was either dead or in airplane mode. other than that I used it for a GBA emulator. I was banned the week before SW/SH came out after leaving the switch completely powered off for over a month.

 

I didn't set up an emunand so N could still detect my modified sysnand the few times I was online. Even when I was on OFW

I just use legit game carts and clean atmosphere emunand (zero pirated games) and edizon.   I trade straight from my modded switch.

So...

My console was bannes yesterday.

Im buying another tomorrow so I can play online again.

Does anyone know if I can SAFELY trade pokemon from my banned switch via local trade to my new unbanned switch?

If so, would it make a difference if the traded pokemon are from a free copy of shield on cfw trading to my legit copy of sword on my new ofw switch?

out of curiosity, what exactly did you do on your cfw switch? surely it wasnt just pokemon save file editing?

A lot

I just thought I'd check if there was something specific I need to avoid besides checking for illegality flags

Another question. I can’t select my pkhex team (pkhex said legal) for the ranked battles. Is there a way to fix this?

i traded them from my usum file to bank and home then sword.

and could I get banned for this?

Ranked only allows Galar bred Pokemon to compete. You will need to either breed them in Galar or edit their met data.

Ah thank you!

Damn that means I can’t use these Pokemon. My switch is not hacked and I’m only using the 3ds right now

That might be why your console got banned. Extracting save file might be considered as low impact but restoring file possesses a risk (could be low or high depending on what you modify). Any other forms of piracy, custom themes, illegal software, etc. are extremely risky if you go online.
