The definition of Cheating:
Act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage, esp. in a game or examination.

The definition of hack:
To use one's skill in computer programming to gain illegal or unauthorized access to a file or network.


So....if you hack to get a Pokemon or an item, by ways not naturally in the game (such as using a third party program)....how are you not cheating.


Just wondering.


If we're here telling you we did it, we're not acting dishonestly.

With RNG Abuse in past gens and Destiny Knot this gen, we gain no advantage in battle.


Who said anything about advantages.

My thread states simply, if someone edits files to change a Pokemon, create a new Pokemon, or gain items, how (by the definitions listed) is that not considered cheating.

I never said it gives you an advantage or disadvantage. I am mearly arguing the "act" of doing such a thing. If its not a natural part of the system, then it must be cheating the system, right?


I could care less if you do it. Just wondering how someone could say doing so is not cheating.
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didnt.

I have a better question. Why do people feel the need to complain about hacking or cheating?


They lack lives or hobbies, thus they need something to do. Complaining is close to a competitive sport on the internet.

I really have nothing against RNG Abuse, and it does seem a bit unfair and yet it is still part of the game mechanic. I just let that junk slide.. This gen, we can't RNG abuse the legendary like we can back in the old days.

It amuses me, yes. Assuming we hack because we're bad at games is just stupid in itself, I'm sorry to say. I hack because it amuses me and saves me time, I tend to avoid hacking ANY game until I've 100% it. We like to test our limits, simple as that.

Well then why would hackers guise and try to say they're legit? Obviously they're looking to play at an advantage. Gotta make up for that laziness ;D
