View Full Version : Has cheating ruined your experiance

December 6th, 2003, 10:41 AM
Ever since i used AR on my Ruby version i cant stop. It has ruined my whole pokemon gaming experiance because i cant stop using it to keep leveling up my pokemon. From this day forward i will not use my AR anymore!

personally cheating is a must for me... how else am i suppose to get the international pokedex and all the others? Plus to get a right personality for the legendaries (the eon siblings only... Kyogre/Groudon/Regitrio/Rayquaza just stand there so you can use reset trick... but they on the other hand...) is such a great pain that I just use a personality cheat to ensure that they are of a certain personality.

Plus there are just a few things that roms can't do while the real ones can... you just have to rely on cheats for these stuff.

What is a ar? A code device?

December 6th, 2003, 7:09 PM
No, since I only use cheats when I become so frustrased that I am about to give up or to make the game harder.

AR is Action Replay

It's a cheat device indeed.

That ois what yas1 told me! He said you used the cheats for it and is them on your gameshark on vba! Well. I don't think I will do that. I like playing on my vba nice and regular , no codes!

I have used an Action Replay to level up my pokemon and get Jirachi and Deoxys, but I am not addicted and I don't use it anymore. My Ruby Team now can never be as strong as it could cause of Action Replay, so I have started a new game on Sapphire, so far I haven't used the AR once, and if i ever use it it will be to get Jirachi and Deoxys.

I am using it to complete the national pokdex. I created codes of all base pokemon (male and female) in eggs.

Minor point: Have to turn gb on, select the codes, go to the pc in the game, move egg, save game, turn gb off and then over again

But when I am finished: MUWHAHAA

On my Ruby game for GBASP I don't have a GameShark or Action Replay so I can't cheat but I still have caught 188 Pokemon but in my Sapphire Rom for Visual Boy Advance I did use a Rare Candy cheat so all my Pokemon were at level 75 and everyone else had Pokemon at level 35. But it was still fun because it was Pokemon. But I think it is more fun when you don't use cheats.

IMO Cheating is good only if you have no other options left available to get what you want. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. Either it spoils the surprise or it opens the path to the next part of the storyline of the game.

Cheating on my blue version was fun for while.... But not only did it ruin my experiance.. it ruined the cartrage and destroyed my saved game.

I vowed then, that i would never again cheat in any way or form in the pokemon universe. Besides.. a real master doesnt cheat, but i learned that the hard way.

December 7th, 2003, 10:36 AM
Well. cheating is only fun when you are desprite! Like you need 3 rare candies to get your pokemon to a good level so hat they can win!

I got addicted to using an AR back in the days of Yellow. Unfortunately, one day it killed my game.

Probably about 400+ hours, gone in the blink of an eye.

My unstoppable Legendaries - gone.

Thing is, I only only used the thing to get items, as I was playing Stadium at the time, and I thought it was unfair that all the trainers in that seemed to have access unlimited TM's.

I still do mind you - I am tempted to use an AR again for extra Items again.

But fortunately I don't have one - yet :|

Hmm, it seems that I have found a new option in that calculator..you can set box locations...can the game handle 184X2=386X2 (a friend wants them as well, he has ruby)=772 codes at the same time...there goes my cartridge lol :D

December 13th, 2003, 5:43 PM
You can copy them over. When the code is disabled/removed, the code Pokemon is erased but all copied over pokemon remain.

I play through the game regularly at first (unless i want a certain team, because i dont like most of the RS pokemon) Then after I play through and beat everything I use cheats....

I only use my codebreaker on my ruby version( My Sapphire version is to full of valuable pokemon to risk it!) Then again, i only use it to get items, then i transer them to my Sapphire. That way, I can get my items, and my sapphire game wont get corrupted.

I can't stop cheating, I used my AR to get Jirachi and Deoxys.

December 15th, 2003, 11:11 AM
I don't have an AR at all, but I may plan on getting one if I deside to get it after Christmas and if I have the money for it.

If I do get one I'll catch all of the PoKeMoN as Shinies with Beneficial Natures and train them to be the best PoKeMoN of all time.

i cheat but i don't pour my life into it like i only use it if i have to

ex. latias on ruby, feebas, other things like that

December 20th, 2003, 7:56 AM
Thats why you try to beat the game before cheating. I beat the game without cheating and got a full pokedex and restarted the game. And with AR I have these ultimate pokemon:

Groudon (sp?)

Isn't that ultimate :P

December 20th, 2003, 7:56 AM
And yea, Im kinda of a Bird Freak :cross-eye

December 21st, 2003, 11:24 AM
Agh! Double-posting! Big no-no! :\ And yes, I beat the game with the lesser beings of Pokemon, too. Legendaries are actually not favorites of mine.

January 22nd, 2004, 4:07 AM
Yea double posting is a big no no. I like to use AR but sudden ly cheating has made my game experience not so fun. I need to stop that.

You can get this thing to backup your memory before you cheat. That way if it crashes, you can always get the memory back.

January 27th, 2004, 1:51 AM
tell me how get national pokedex in ruby i have all 202 pokemon and some old pokemon too
