I mean, I understand where both sides are coming from, but really, I don't care. I can see why morals might be an issue, and why the need to produce pokemon quickly is also an issue, but I just...don't find myself holding as radical of an opinion as anyone else on the board. Is anyone with me in this? --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam.
People shouldn't be so bothered by the way others play the game as long as it's not directly effecting your experience. I mean, some of us just don't have time to waste or don't want to waste time doing such tedious crap like breeding just to play a game.
I'm the same way. Though sometimes I kinda wonder, why don't hackers just play on a simulator for their competitive Pokemon needs? --- "You got to be careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there." - Yogi Berra
I have used an AR for the sole purpose of seeing the Pokemon I'm missing for the Dex so I can look for them in the GTS (which is not as easy as it sounds, what with some people asking for underleveled Pokes).
I also clone some Pokemon to use them as a bargain chip.
And to be honest, I doubt many people could tell apart the clones from the real thing, or the hacked Pokemon from the caught/bred one.
