hard work is way better. it makes everything more fun. for example like um better. also cloning isn't really hacking i dunno why every one says it is
I much rather capturing Pokemon the normal way: throwing Pokeballs and catching them.
I find cheating devices unfair, lazy, and just plain stupid. If I want something like Shaymin or Arceus, I would just rely on patience.
TO those who say "Cheating takes the fun out of the game", let me say this:
Fun is subjective.
To me, "fun" in pokemon means battling. Not, spending 3 weeks breeding for the right Iv's/natures, not battling a million wild pokemon just to get pokerus, and definitely not catching pokemon in Emerald and giving them move tutor moves, and then importing them. So I use AR.
Remember, "fun" is subjective. One guy may think something is ultra super-fun, while another guy thinks it's boring as hell. Hey, Tons of people like FPS like Call of Duty 4 and Battlefield, but I think they are boring and difficult. People have different tastes,you cant just generalize something, like you're doing by saying Ar takes the fun out of the game.
Just my 2 cents.
Actually, I basically said what Machiki said but worded it a little differently.
I use Action Replay... Because
I want to win battles, but I don't want to sit through hours of boredom before it
The thing I get from people is that "Cheating takes all the fun out of Pokemon." If this was for completing the National Dex, I'd agree 110%. But seriously now, EV training, breeding and hatching fun? Not to me it isn't. Hard work always seems like the right thing to do, but I've found out most of the people that say that just WANT an Action Replay and don't want others to have it.
Who could resist turning about 60 hours worth of training into 10 minutes?
Every person I know who uses PokeSav does it LEGITLY so there isn't really anything unfair about it. Think of it, unless someone here thinks EV training is fun, cheating
