It must be recognized that things have changed a lot over the last decades because if you remember the 90s, having a list of tricks with which to access other phases, gain lives, collect thousands of coins or become invincible was the most normal in the world. Even the companies made those codes public so that they would appear later in the magazines of the time. Although that will not happen with Pokémon Emerald and Pokémon Purple.
As we tell you, things have changed a lot and that old habit of checking the game based on codes is no longer well regarded. Among other things because there is an online part in practically all developments that forces companies to ensure fair play among gamers and really check that all their achievements and milestones are absolutely legitimate. And that’s what Nintendo is on these days leading up to the release of Pokemon Emerald and Pokemon Purple .
Indeed, on Friday, November 18, 2022, two more new titles in the series will arrive on Nintendo Switch and the Japanese are already paving the way for the competition to be the best Paldea coach (a new scenario with an air of sandbox that all sources indicate that it is loosely inspired by our Iberian Peninsula) is as noble, transparent and clean as possible .
Be that as it may, one of the main legs of these Pokémon games has to do with collecting creatures and, in certain game modes, trading with other players. Well, this is precisely where Nintendo’s threats to all those who are tempted to choose the shortest path come.
Be careful with the Pokémon you trade
It has been in a publication of the official page of Pokémon in Japan where we have been able to read the warnings that Nintendo issues where, he acknowledges, he has been able to confirm that “some users are playing the Pokémon series and Pokémon HOME using illegally modified data .” This, essentially, is not only a way to check the game unethically, but according to the company, this “illegally modified data causes problems in the operation of software applications.”
So, ahead of the launch of Pokémon Emerald and Pokémon Purple , they are clear that they are going to pursue this practice, in such a way that they have decided to take VERY harsh disciplinary measures for all users who cause problems for others during that exchange process. What’s more, even if we try, playing dumb won’t prevent us from being penalized and Nintendo specifically specifies that excuses like “I received them accidentally” or “I didn’t realize it, but the data exchanged was modified” won’t work.
These measures will be as simple as they are effective, and it is certain that many will refrain from trading these Pokémon in their games as they risk being excluded from the community:
- Restrictions on online play within Pocket Monsters .
- Restrictions on the use of certain trading functions within Pokémon HOME (in its mobile version).
- The foregoing will cause the suspension of the use of Pokémon HOME (both on mobile phones and on the Nintendo Switch itself).
- Pokemon Bank .
So with all of the above, are you going to risk trading Pokémon other than the strictly official ones?
