Breeding for perfects is quick in comparison to how it used to be, so it's not as if you'll be steamrolled by "legit" pokemon (stat wise) if someone genned them instead of breeding. You can overcome that hurdle by breeding your own. It's only a problem when people hack pokemon ridiculously and give them impossible moves and whatnot. That seems pretty rare from my experience, though.

Also, you can buy rare candies on the gts website once you register your game and begin building up pokemiles.

impossible moves and whatnot


Even if someone hacks an illegal moveset and manages to get it through the transporter into Gen 6, it gets blocked from wifi battling. So the only difference is time not spent playing Tour de Kalos Bike Sim™ and that's not a gameplay advantage at all. And this is coming from someone who does breed rather than hack.

If someone else skipping Single-Entrant Bike Race: Kalos Edition™ bothers you that much, I hate it for ya.

People that hack won't have any advantages over you other than having perfect Pokemon with Gen 5 tutor moves (even then, that's hardly an advantage).
X/Y are pretty good. I say you should get them.

10/10, I came in to tell you that hacking doesn't matter one bit and was thoroughly surprised. You've done a new one, good job.

Now watch the rest of the board copy you for the next 24 hours.

Yes day care, rare candies, and TMS are all still in the game, so you still play some other game instead
