    Official X & Y Help Thread

    Well, it was back in Gen V, but good to know that it's less strict now. Thanks.

    Official X & Y Help Thread

    Geez, been gone two years. Can't believe I still remembered my old password. Anyways: Since Pokebank doesn't allow items to be transferred, are events still considered untouched if they don't have their items (but otherwise still have no EVs)?

    It's a service fee on the industry as a whole. I know that Smeargle was rushing to find a new cloner and was actually ticking off a customer because it was hard to provide the service. So by shrinking the cloning process down to probably a handful of moderately well-off individuals effectively...

    Which is why I feel like it should just be put to bed entirely. He's mentioned that RNG is still something they're keeping an eye on and is still a gray area that they're not sure how to handle. But the whole reasoning behind the AR ban is that it's "illegal" in the eyes of Nintendo/Gamefreak...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    But I did use a cloner, which was the backbone of my trading here. I outlined a lot of this in my first post on here, which I believe was on page 5. I'm adamant because I feel, personally, that this has become a matter of semantics. There is no logical reason to not ban cloning outright when...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    Please don't strawman. I'm not a cloner, nor did I ever use or own an AR. Nor am I trying to get "everything banned". And as I had mentioned before, I was only originally on here because of the trade forum. I have absolutely not a single interest in the rest of this site outside of it.

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    Which is why I'm trying to point out that's it's not really a middle ground or an option when you're basically required to have deep pockets to make it work. It's more fair, at least in my opinion, to "all or nothing" it instead of hanging a faux carrot and stick.

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    Well, with a remake of Ruby and Sapphire most likely on the way, I think we still have a few years left in Gen V. Regardless, while "allowed" cloning methods still exist in Gen IV, you can't port Pokemon from Gen V backwards, so it's kind of useless unless you're dealing specifically in Pokemon...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    Is it alright if I ask the question then? Cloning in-game is mechanically exactly the same as using an external device when you get down to the bare bones. The main difference being that, as of now, the former requires a good chunk of disposable income and the latter doesn't. Why is one...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    Well, what I see the larger issue at hand being is the fact that, excluding AR and porting earlier Gen Pokemon, this site requires you to have shelled out somewhere between two hundred and five hundred American to be able to legitimately trade clones on here. Which is why I personally feel...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    The bottom line is that an AR is an external device not made by Nintendo/Gamefreak or advocated by them. This makes using one cheating/hacking which is "bad wrong". And as of Gen V, there's apparently only one, very expensive and difficult way to clone. This means that cloning as a whole is...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    I just don't see the distinction as being anything but an exercise in semantics. I mean, you yourself showed disdain over the idea of folks getting a net gain through cloning instead of losing something in a trade for something they saw as equal value. Nintendo/Gamefreak and more than a quite...

    Thanks for your help, but I am one of those people who doesn't trust or want anything to do with Pokecheck. Ah well, this dream was fun to entertain while it lasted.

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    Nutter, to be honest, your TF2 anecdote is kind of a strawman. Just because both an AR and your thing are external devices doesn't mean they affect gameplay in the same fashion and is really just comparing apples to oranges on the grounds they're both fruits. Edit: I'm also now of the opinion...

    The only event Gengar too. I read Rayce's post on the matter, but I don't know if I can trust Neoseeker. I don't know their policies or how involved their mods are on keeping the trades going on legitimate, like Serebii had done up until now.

    While I appreciate your offer, I doubt you can help me. I'm hunting the JEREMY Gengar that was handed out at Toys'R'Uses back in 2004 for Leaf Green and Fire Red. I've only seen it in, at most, 2 trade shops here on Serebii, so it appears to be quite the rarity. It was nice to dream that I...

    Trade Shop Rule Confusion?

    I know my opinion means jack squat since I'm not a big regular or anyone important, but I will say that discovering this discussion is going on has made me decide to leave. I joined Serebii because I felt like it was a website who's trading community I could trust. It wasn't the visually...
