So.. the final vestige of pokegen will be..

sending perfect ditto's over? I own a traded one at the moment. I tried some pokegen myself last year, but quickly began to feel very upset about reducing pokemon to hacking and numbers. It depends a bit on the transporters security measures. If somehow the legit hacks seep through, well.. that would be quite.. I can't even grasp the very idea.

And even if nintendo manages to catch every/most hacks by some genius programming, eventually you can replace ditto's by perfect IV breeds from the same egg groups over time, which will spread over wifi pretty quickly since breeding a lot of them is a piece of cake. I'm so glad that finally the era of numberwrestling is over. ^_^

The "legitimate hacks" will seep through. There's nothing different about them code-wise.

There's no such thing as a "legitimate hack." That's an oxymoron.

Legal hacks... Yes, that is a thing.

With the Destiny Knot IV breeding trick now, though, we really won't even need to hack things very often.

You know, I would just be giddy as hell if Nintendo just decided that 4+ max EVs was an auto block.

I keep hearing about the Destiny Knot when breeding, what did I miss?

If the game's coding can't tell the difference, then who is some random nobody on the internet to claim otherwise?

Basically, if you attach a Destiny Knot to one of the parents when breeding, the parents can pass down five IVs instead of three. So it makes breeding much, much easier if you have good parents.

If the game can't tell and the creator of the hack doesn't fess up to it, then sure, nobody has to know. Nobody likely will know, and nobody likely will care.

That still doesn't mean that it's possible to create a "legit hack." Like I said, that's an oxymoron. It can't happen. Hacking, by definition, is not legitimate.

Well yeah, you can't max out four Evs without blatantly hacking.

Holding a Destiny Knot guarantees that parent will pass 5 of its IVs to the egg, instead of a brace guaranteeing only one.

Not exactly. It guarantees that 5 IVs will be passed down from both parents. Not 5 each, or from a specific parent, just 5 overall, I think.
