    News and updates about Pokémon, events, and game mods
    The anticipation is over!  After weeks of working out a few issues and adding some awesome new features, Kaphotics recently released the next upgrade to the go-to save editor, PKHeX.

    Look at all the stability this is bringing.
      Presently, it's been reported that users that mod their 3DSs (regardless Arm9LoaderHax or Boot9Strap) have been affected by a 002-0102 ban.

    A ban of this error code is not new, with the most notable instance being when users went online with Pokemon Sun and Moon pre-launch.
    Users with this ban are able to access e-Shop, but won't be able to access their Friends list, and also not able to connect online with games.
    This ban is different from a simple Game-Sync/PGL ban; this ban affects and limits all games' online-play connectivity.

    It is not known if this is an indiscriminate blanketed banwave against all Custom Firmware (CFW) users,
    or whether there is a underlying mechanic responsible for this.

    While we are unaware whether users with CFW already have their information captured by Nintendo's servers,
    recommended actions are:
    Don't attempt any online play.  Keep your 3DS Network Switch "OFF" Do not attempt to bypass the Ban (we don't know if it'll lead to more severe action) Wait patiently for any findings (may take weeks)

    Updated: For those that want to risk the pesky ban, these safeguards below could work.

(that's how my HBL is running now) Use Tiksweep to remove remaining unused tickets Use GodMode9 to clear your Activity Log Use Cthulu - Cache Tool to clear your shared icon cache and home menu icon cache Launch and play every app (it'll be weird to have no activity in any of them) Using your Router's URL filter to prevent 3DS from communicating with other servers unnecessarily
    Various developers are still monitoring the situation, to identify the detection methods.
    If you got time, take part in this survey:

    “Magikarp, the fish Pokémon. In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.”
    The Pokémon Company with developer SELECT BUTTON Inc. released Pokémon: Magikarp Jump on May 16th exclusively in Apple’s Italian App Store. This means, if your Apple ID’s country is set to “Italy”, you can download this game right now.  Others will just have to wait until it is distributed elsewhere… Or, you could create an alternate Apple ID with the specified country and play this curious game too.
    As its title indicates, the featured Pokémon in this game is none other than Magikarp!  Catch, feed and train Magikarp in order to maximize its jumping power.  Jumping too high may entice bird Pokémon to swoop on your fish.
    If you would like to see what it's all about, head over to the App Store and give it shot. Nintendolife.com summarizes how you can create a new Apple ID if you’re not in the targeted country.  If you decide to play it, reply to this post and share your experiences with us.
