  • HOME Banwave Ongoing


    A HOME banwave has been reported, and as of time of writing, it apparently is still ongoing. It restricts access to HOME accounts that may have, and not limited to: god egg, bad eggs, shiny variants of shiny locked mons, impossible Gmax mons, impossible moves (not Hydro Pump Drillbur nor the GO Alolan transfer mishap).

    Furthermore, there are reports indicating certain URL nicknamed mons are restricting from trading.
    Anyhow, do release all illegal and impossible mons, as well as any Nickname/OT that has a URL, before you get caught up in it. Reports indicate that while your console isn't banned from online usage, it cannot make HOME accounts ever again (even in other profiles). This could be a console restriction or IP restriction, details are not clear at this point.

    Given HOME's ability to fix Pokémon in saves, it is presently not known if this capability will be used to restrict the online connectivity of players based on the Pokémon they have in their saves.

    With that being said, don't break HOME's TOS ever again.

     

    Edit: Based on preliminary reporting, it appears that the HOME bans are given out to user accounts that interacted with any other HOME account that has high varying IP traffic, and has illegal mons. (Basically,   HOME accounts might be shared across several people or interaction with such accounts). 

    Also, do not confused HOME bans with URL trade restrictions. Not the same thing.

    You can legitimately bring the move over. You're only forced to delete it if you wanna make the mon Battle Ready. It's a legitimate transfer move, why would that flag you as having altered data, unless you gave it to a Pokemon caught in Gen 8 that shouldn't have access to the move?

    Was this a rhetorical question? Thanks anyway for answering ig

    Part yes, and part no.

    It's a legitimate transfer move. Unless you have the move in circumstances that you shouldn't have the move, there's nothing to show that it's altered data (in that case)...

    Also, I've said the conditions of the bans before. So far, nothing has changed.
    What you've said doesn't match the scenario I've previously listed.

    it appears that the bans are targeted to (1) sellers'/distributors' HOME account, as well as HOME accounts of anyone who interacted with those sellers'/distributors' accounts, AND (2) any account that has illegal mons, that also fulfill condition (1).

    At present, if you have illegals but don't fulfill condition (1), then you probably won't get banned.
    [At least, that is what I've seen as well as heard.]

    Note: the situation can and likely will change.

     

    Edit: There's presently some reports, that says some bans seem to indicate (3) transferring Gen 8 mons from Bank into HOME, without fulfilling condition (1). However, more of such cases will need to come in, before we can rule it as a confirmed scenario.

    Your foru is a very nice thanks for sharing  So it can result in situations where a hypothetical mon A was illegal, but it was hard to catch to us (for various reasons, such as we did not create the game and may have missed some super technical explanation, such as memories, for example), and was thus flagged legal.

    Is there a question to your statement? Or was it just an acknowledgement to my point?

    Anyhow, putting the legal and illegal Pokemon discussion aside, it appears they are targeting high traffic accounts or interaction with such account and possession of super blatently illegal mons, typically shiny variants of shiny locked stuff. They don't seem to bother with memories and stuff.

    • Since they released over a decade ago, the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games for the Nintendo DS have not had much in the way of ROM editors. Over the past few years, hackers have slowly learned more and more about the inner workings of the games, culminating in the most advanced PMD editor to date: Sky Temple. 

      SkyTemple is a user-friendly level editor for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky that gives the user full control over graphics, scripts, Pokémon data, and more, enabling a great amount of creative freedom to prospective ROM hackers to create not just edits of the game, but entirely new levels and plots.

      See the trailer for the version 1.0.0 release for quick samples of what can be accomplished:
