    According to the Japanese Pokémon Global Link website[1] as reported by Serebii.net[2],
    7,651 more players have been hit with the 090-0212 ban wave, after being detected of having a modified game save.

    This ban bars users from accessing Online Play services (Game Sync, Battle Competitions, Rating Battles, Global Missions).


    Once again, The Pokémon Company has announced that they will continue their pursuit against people with edited save data.[1,2]

    If you are affected by the ban, please let us know what kinds of edits you made,
    so we can get a better idea what The Pokémon Company is looking for.

    While we already some strong suspicions regarding the causes previously,
    we urgently recommend not going online if you modified your
    save,
    until we have more information on how these bans were triggered.

    I got banned. The only hacking I've done was giving myself certain balls, bottle caps, rare candies, and a handful of mega stones. I don't have anything impossible to obtain legitimately. A friend of mine who is much more reckless with his hacking has not been banned, I suspect the reason why I got banned and he didn't is because I've gone onto Battle Spot. Honestly, this wouldn't really bother me, except that since I can't Game Sync anymore, I can't unlock my battle box that I used in the most recent competition.

    What megastones and balls did you give yourself?

    For the mega stones, a couple of each Charizardite, and two Blastoisinites, iirc. 

    For the balls, Beasts and Apricorns.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I did also give myself some of the wings, vitamins, and PP boosters. Though I'm fairly certain that's it. Here's the save from the last PKHeX edit I did before I was banned.

    It's likely the bulk of 999 items, especially apricorn balls, when you don't have that many trades done.

    Also, you have a peculiar Suicune, that memories with OT indicate it was hatched.
    Lopunny from AS in Apricorn ball. Basically a few hacks. (while there's no indication of such hacks leading to bans..)

    Yeah, figured it was the items. I highly doubt it'd be those suspicious pokemon, though, as those were both traded to me, in gen 6, and successfully brought up through bank.

    Did you only just recently game sync after March 28 (the day the ban waves rolled out happened) and got the error code message?

    Yes, I was trying to get my reward for participating in the Kanto and Alola friendly when I got the message that access to global link from my save data has been denied.

    • 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:

    • The #1 issue with Gates to Infinity is the super slow text speed. Luckily, @shutterbug2000 discovered how to fix it.
