A juicy bit of irony regarding the 'hack' situation

#1RatheVPosted 11/27/2013 9:41:52 PM
There are several people on this board (most of them trolls, I realize) who adamantly maintain that the use of any third-party software goes against the vision of the game's designers, and will relentlessly heckle anybody who so much as uses Instacheck to view a Pokemon's stats before trading.

And today, with the advent of the Battle Analyzer software, the only way utilize the Battle Spot online play as intended (that is, without your every move being read by your opponent) is by using a (currently WIP) piece of third-party software to scramble your signal so that its unreadable.

So I'm curious, what do you do in this dilemma? You can use third-party software (or simulators) to recreate the experience Game Freak intended, or you can lose repeatedly in a way that they never saw coming.

Once again, please note that this question isn't posed everybody who identifies as 'anti-hacker' but only those few hardcore purists.

I fail to see how using a third party device that does nothing but prevent other players from cheating would be an issue to people who are against hacking.

It's an issue because it shouldn't be required in the first place.

Well-roundedness means less than nothing. If I'm cheating, and you're not, I can switch into any of your attacks without fear. That essentially completely rules out the notion of so much as running ground, electric, normal, fighting, ghost, poison, psychic, and dragon attacks, because there are types immune to them all. If you count abilities, you can include water, fire, and grass. That's anywhere from 1/3rd to 1/2 of the type chart that a cheater running the Battle Analysis tool just doesn't have to worry about.

though i personally think people are really blowing this out of proportion.

how many people out of the 2+ million do you honestly think downloaded this device before its links were pulled? and of those people have sucessfully installed it? and of those actually have the patience to use it online in un/ranked battles and attempt to use it to correctly counter moves the opponent use?
