Hacking in Pokemon is like steroids in baseball, it's part of the game.

Just accept it.

Who here had a Gameshark for their GBC and loved it!?

I've always thought that analogy was awful.

It still is.

It wasn't meant to be part of Baseball though, some bad apples did it, others didn't want to be left behind, and what is most certainly cheating became the norm that everyone was doing and the sport lost all credibility.

That doesn't make it any less wrong.

I've used cheating devices in the past to mess around with walking through walls and get event Pokemon that we're not available to me...that's about it.

Hacking to get perfect Pokemon is just bad. To use your analogy...using steroids in a sport is bad too.

Steroids help you build muscles faster, hacking helps you get stronger Pokemon faster. I believes that is what he is going for

This.

This is the perfect description of hacking in the Pokemon community as well.
