    Known Causes of PGL Bans

    By evandixon, in News,

    Because of past PGL ban waves (and a potential future one), many are wondering if they can edit save files safely. The safest option is to simply not hack or to not use game sync, although some minor edits may be safe. The problem is that it is unclear on what the bans were based, and the Pokémon company hasn't exactly volunteered this information.
    Here are the known causes of PGL bans:
    Getting 999 of every item (it's possible the bans are from a sub-set of items) Making illegal changes to Pokémon between game syncs Illegal Pokédex entries Items in the incorrect Bag Pocket Changing anything in the save that is static (like OT, Gender, Language, etc.) Getting all clothing (there's been mixed reports about this) We have not received any reports of banning due to receiving hacked Pokémon in trades. Making other edits might be safe, but only as long as the result could have been accomplished without hacks given more effort.
    By hacking your save file, you accept full responsibility of any consequences such as being banned. If you are banned, however, we would appreciate your input so we can learn more.
    Thanks to everyone who posted in our previous threads about the bans for sharing their experiences, zenamez of GBAtemp for compiling the causes reported on GBAtemp, and to theSLAYER and Serebii for checking this information.

    Ho-ho-ho.
    It's about time they caught on.



    While I never did go online to do battles with the cartridge in a different Region 3DS,
    I did accidentally use the same save (on a different Region 3DS, pre-GameSync) to collect a wonder card for screenshots,
    (which I remember the incident very clearly), so that is how they caught me.

    I probably went online without checking my Luma's Region setting.
    (it was set to a different region settings, argh)

    We will update this page, as the story develops.
