Why using software/rng abuse to get legal stats isn't cheating.

#1copypaste434Posted 8/31/2013 9:33:34 AM
Its not cheating if the player has legal pokemon that could have been obtained in game.

Cheating is when you give a pokemon illegal stats or moves, or going over the ev limit and giving 252 ev's in every stat.

Using software to make ILLEGAL pokemon is CHEATING. I am totally against this.

The argument against people who use software to make LEGAL pokemon is analogous to the following argument:

Technically everyone cheats who uses ev's because thats an unfair advantage against people who dont want to ev train.

Yet this isn't considered cheating.

The same can be said for people who use software to get perfect IVs/ moves or whatever. As long as its possible in game, it should not be considered cheating.

Also I'd like to say as long as someone could do it in game its not cheating.

Someone in game can't give pokemon illegal move sets/ evs.

Therefore this is cheating.

Someone in game can however breed flaw;less iv pokemon (albeit spending there time IV breeding)

Therefore using software for this is not cheating.

Some people can't differentiate between cheating and hacking, unfortunately.

I understand that this argument accepts glitch mons. Sure. Why not. People can just have bans on glitch mons in their battles.
