Alright kids, what is hacking in your books

Seeing how you know EVERYTHING, summarize and elaborate what the definition of hacking is. Because the way I see it....

Pokegen/AR isnt considered hacking, even though you're abusing IVs for your own gain; maybe EVs. Also, shiny team anyone?

Always crit hits. Believe this happened to some of us. Or effects are greater; like burn or ice

Abilities. Or pokes that are suppose to be event only, but were bred. (SB blazikien in pokeball?)

I dont know anything else, but I want to hear your words about hacking. Because YOU knoooowwww everything

This IS hacking though, that's not up for debate. If you ask "What do you think is morally wrong," the answer might be "Not Pokegen/AR," but it is hacking.

Using external means to alter the data in your game in a way that was not intended by the developers.

This. It's simple IMO.

Go to local casino and RNG their machines then convince them it's not cheating.

Not getting the Pokémon other than from in game mechanics and nothing else.

No PokeGen or whatever, no Gameshark, Game Genie, No Action Replay, no RNG, no manipulator, no taking hacked parents to make a "legit" baby, none of that.

imo I have always thought of cheating as getting unlimited items, making your pokemon super powerful without you having to do anything, and making every pokemon appear in the first route. the only times I have ever used an action replay is for pokemon I could not get in the game because of events. so things like mew celebi jirachi deoxys darkrai arceus and shaymin are what I cheated on. and if it was possible for that pokemon I only cheated the items that they gave away at the events that lead to the pokemon that way I could still experience it the way it was supposed to be. in fact after I got the legit pokemon I released the ones I had hacked

I guess I should've put that in mine too.
Cheating in an item to catch the Pokémon legit, I considered a hacked Pokémon because you didn't get the item legitimately.

Wow. I underestimated this board. I sincerely thought most of the kids on here were just being naive when they know they are hacking, but use the excuse of cheating not hacking.

Maybe I've been paying attention to the wrong users.... Hmmm...

This.
So Pokegen, AR, heck, even a calculator and a clock so you can abuse the RNG is considered hacking in my book.

action replay/pokesav

if used completely correct, pokesav could make pokemon that look 100% legit and are undetectable as hacks, but everyone makes mistakes somewhere so its not likely.
