Just playing the Devil's advocate here. I've heard complaints about this before, but also staunch support from those in favour of genning and whatnot. My personal opinion is that these things can spoil the game for me. Many times have I considered just putting the game away when I've spent over 100 hours trying to hatch a shiny, 5IV legit Pokemon after thinking "Why am I bothering? I should just gen this. Very few people really care if it's legit or not."

All 3 are cheating, and cheating is wrong

Lets reserve words like evil for truly awful stuff which the vast majority of humanity finds abhorrent. As much as I dislike such practices, people that clone/gen/powersave/whatever do not even rate.

Unless it gives them an unfair advantage in the game, they can do whatever the hell they want.

Pragmatism is the way forward!

The more stuff you label "evil", and the more trivial a circumstance or situation that you apply the label "evil" to, the less the word "evil" means.

Although all 3 are technically cheating, as long as I'm not doing it.....I really don't care what others do.
Like if I get a Pokemon that was one of those 3, the most likely thing is I'd never know. On the chance that I do know, it's not like I'm gonna be rid of it....unless it's a shiny or has a nickname, because I'm iffy like that.
Sooo.....go crazy?

You know, maybe I've just been out of the loop, but are people going back to 'hacking vs non-hackers' again, because that was stupid.

It does though. Apparently ye can use Powersaves now to lock Giratina into Origin Form an' then give it any item ye want, still retaining that form. Of course it probably doesn't stop at Giratina, ye can most likely do this to all Pokemon with alternate forms, probably even Megas.

An' of course, ye can use these online too. If that isn't an unfair advantage, I don't know what is.

"Evil" is an EXTREMELY powerful word and should not be used as lightly as this. It is a video game, for goodness sake.

Now then, I do not care what people do with Genning/Powersaves/whatever. If they use it to make things that are perfectly legal, more power to them for saving time. If they do things that are not legal, as long as they keep those to their own in-game, I have no qualms.

Allow all legendary Pokemon to be breedable.

Problem solved.
