I know it's possible to inject a save into a Pokemon SWSH cartridge but if I do that will I get banned on my switch that's not modded if I play with it online? I'm considering getting a switch lite and a physical game to do ranked battles and Max raid battles with friends. I just don't want to play the game all over to unlock everything so I just want to inject my save data into the new game.
There is quite a lot of discussion here about the legality of edited Pokemon, but I've been wondering what effect (if any) minor edits have to a save file. For example, my wife DS's date was a year out when I used it to beat the elite four for the first time in Diamond, resulting in a weird save where I started my game in 2007 and finished it in 2006. Does changing these dates - or the dates Pokemon were caught on - have any effect on the integrity of the save file itself? Generally I'm more interested in Pokesav and similar programs for their backup and storage capabilities rather than editing Pokemon stats and so on, but I want to know if these seemingly minor changes are going to have any effect on my game before going ahead with them.
