(please note, this thread has nothing to do with PokeSav, which is blatant hacking)
Pokemon hacking has long been a shamed upon subject of this forum, typically bringing ridicule and scorn, as well as a locked thread. Why?
As a player of the Metagame, i understand how frustrating it can be when you battle a Wonderguard Sableye, or a Shiny Heracross with perfect IV's and 9999 stats. I realize that once you hack in a pokemon game, that game can never compete within an official Nintendo tournament.
But Those are the extreme examples of hacking, where as some of the tamer examples are ignored. Tamer examples of hacking include the TM hack, where you obtain 99 of all TM's, and a copy of all HM's, the max money hack, where as the name states, your money is maxed out, to hacking for the Azure Flute as to complete your national dex. These examples are commonly overlooked when bashing hacking, yet many players do so anyways (its referred to as legal hacking)
please note that all text below this is refferring to the tamer hacking, not the wild version.
Which brings us to the real topic of this thread. Why is it wrong to hack a pokemon game? If you play pokemon purely for the in-game moments, purely for the story, what is wrong with hacking pokemon? If you find it more enjoyable to not have to worry about battling trainers for money, or being wise about how you use your money, then what is business of ours is it to tell you otherwise?
As long as you do not trade your hacked pokemon with/to us, or battle your hacked pokemon against us, its not my job to tell you how to play your game.
So, riddle me this bulbagarden.
1) Why are members whom ask about Action Replay Codes for say, getting all the TM's, flamed, yet that is referred to as legal hacking?
2) Why are you telling people how to play the game? if they want to play exclusively in-game, then its no business of yours whether they use cheat codes or not, as long as they know the consequences.
3)Why is the hacking mentioned above (in-game, no meta-game) wrong?
Please, do not answer with just "hacking is wrong".
give me a rason why that hacking is wrong.
