@Stark_Nebula Simple solution: Don't go on Smogon to find a competitive match if you don't create your own team with the aid of generators such as PokeGEN or PokeSAV. The competitive battlers are so anal about everything they do that they make the legitimacy of their Pokemon as real as possible and they never abuse things such as illegal EVs or move sets. I play competitive battles and I can tell you right now, if you are on those sites such as Smogon or PO looking for a casual match then you're in the wrong place. These "hackers" (which is funny that they're called so because they're not hacking at all) are nothing more then people that like to play against a select few amount of people that truly understand the game mechanics to their fullest and just don't have the time to legitimately raise their 48+ competitive Pokemon to battle in the ever changing competitive meta game. The only thing that I agree with in this article are the people in tournaments using illegal Pokemon because a lot of the times they have stats such as 252 EVs in every stat, which is just unfair.

I don't see any issue with these so called "cheaters". They aren't using any impossible stat combinations for Pokemon, and they are used only for competitive play. Most people set up organized battles through Smogon, and no one uses them to cheat their way through the main game, and if they do, then that is their decision. In no way is anyone hacking the Pokemon game, as the app used for this just sets up an alternative IP adress for the DS system to get the Pokemon from. It's not like you are messing with the games coding or system files and making illegal "super" Pokemon. This is the only was people can play competitively, and quite honestly, I think it's great to see these people do this. If Gamefreak is really considered about these so called "hackers", then they should make a mode of online play separate from the main game where you can pick your own Pokemon team. These competitive players are making the game better, and I just can't see how they are considered cheaters.
