I don't do it but I find it okay to do just for fun and everything and get some cool things, but to use it to do things like beat the game, or competitive battling I think it's just wrong and sucks the fun out of the game.

I see it has cheating if they want to battle you and then they throw out a legend with Wonder Gaurd. The only reasons I have one is cause some Pokemon I like there shiny versions than there original.

I don't mind it, and I use it plenty...but most of the time it's only to catch Pokemon that can't be caught unless you have one of the GBA games. I wouldn't use something it helped me achieve or get in any type of competition though, that's just cheap.

I would say using it to get something that already exists is fine, like an event pokemon, shinies, or some good IVs. I don't support hacking stuff like Wondertomb or 6 perfect IVs, though.

Cheating isn't good. It takes away the sole purpose of the game, to try hard and get things yourself.

Until you realize half the things you get afterwards suck.

Thankfully, Heracross is not one of them.

I hate it.

IMO anyone who hacks Pokemon sucks too much to play it right.

It's lame. Pokemon is a fun enough game without things being handed to you on command...and honestly, if you're using it just to get perfect statted Pokemon, you care too much.

I don't tend to mind others cheating, unless they use it for cheating themselves through the meta game, such as maxing out stats, etc.

Honestly, I don't like the idea of AR or cheating the game. Basically because I hate to see the game's purpose and fun be exploited by a simple device that goes around the block to find an easier route. I don't use it, and I won't use it. Though, it is other people who choose to, and honestly I have no control over the, for doing it.

I believe it's okay as long as you don't alter any Pokemon in the process. I use Action Replay only for "walking through walls", getting certain items, etc.
If one does alter Pokemon, they should not trade it or use it in battle.

My only AR sin was to get 999 of all the berries and then came some glitch items on my Pearl and I was like "wtf" and it died X_X.

So... No. I don't use it. I think it simply kills the game. But for some reason my brother completely rapes it towards the point that cheating is part of the game.

I only use cheating devices if there is a ridiculously difficult game mechanic that needs some adjustment or event Pokemon I didn't have the opportunity to get at the actual event.

Ex. Making Feebas a bit more common in RSE. Does it really have to be THAT rare?

Ex. Getting a level 30 Celebi with no other enhancements.

I hate cheating on the Pokemon games. It takes all the fun out of them.

And as for getting legendaries, that's not cool either. So, someone has a Mew, but no one will care about it because they know it's hacked anyway.

Cheating sucks. The only time I ever used an AR was when I used 'Walk Through Anything' on my friend's DS, just to see what it was like.

It wasn't that great either. T^T

I use it only to complete my Pokedex, and to get shinies and to get ones that aren't in the game. But it'll take the fun out...

TBH I don't why people are so crazy about it. There are some pretty cool things you can do when editing Pokemon that you can't do normaly (ie. getting Cherish Balls). I don't why everyone freaks out when they see a shiny in a cherish ball, but with perfectly legal stats. It's just for looks anyway. But what I don't like is when people hack pokemon to get all of their stats to 999 or something like that.

I think is bad... I accept that people use cheat but if there's nothing else to door the game is getting boring...But those who cheat to have a lv 100 mewtwo at the start of the game or cheat for economic purposes (the classic: I'll give you any pokemon if you send my $). It's not good.

Also people confuses the word "cheat" with "hack":
Cheat is using cheats to obtain something and is more direct.
Hack means that some people modifies the game, and requires some experience so its not bad.

I used to do it for infinite Master Balls, but now that I look back; I regret it everyday. It kinda ruined the whole point of the game.

I can't really stop my friends from doing these kind of stuff, but they know that they'll get the dissappointment face whenever they do, though.
