    So far, Action Replay hasn't made a way to hack into 3DS games.

    Now that the 6th gen is going to be on the 3DS, does the lack of AR bother you?

    Personally I do post-Elite Four wise. I like finishing the game legit and then start hacking like no tomorrow.

    What about you people?

    Yeah, it really does bother me in a way, 'cause I won't be able to research the game and see how the game is developed and all that.

    The Nintendo DS had Action Replay hacking the games since launch day of the Nintendo DS. Which was really handy for people who were curious of how the game worked and stuff and that are people who were hoping to one day become game developers of Nintendo DS games.

    I remember the days when I used to use an Action Replay for Pokémon Diamond back in 2007 to get certain items early and stuff for the Nintendo DS Connection Tour '07 competition that I was going to be in. Which was indeed a competition at Chadstone Shopping Centre near Huesdale in Melbourne. I had to use the Action Replay to get the items that I needed really quickly before I actually entered the competition, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to enter.

    I remember during that competition that many people had actually hacked their Pokémon as well, such as an exploding Magikarp, it's was hilarious. It makes me wonder why they didn't disqualify them. xD

    But yeah, later in 2008 I started researching Pokémon Diamond in how it functioned and stuff, like it's 3D mapping structures and stuff like that. Which was back in the days when most of PC was indeed still only knew about sprite hacking and maybe a few polygon messing up, but that was it. But it wasn't until late 2011 that someone managed to create a 3D map exporter.

    And now... we're in the present day where hacking Generation IV and V is almost completely possible. But... knowing that the Nintendo DS has been hackable since launch day, the Nintendo 3DS hasn't even been hacked, most people are wondering why it hasn't. Well, it's quite simple, none of the 3rd party corporations that haven't been authorized by Nintendo have managed to leak anything at all. Not even a CTR SDK, which every SDK is essential for companies developing applications that can be made as an application instead of a game, where as the Nitro SDK had been leaked since launch day of the Nintendo DS.

    I'm guessing Nintendo has become more stricter with their guidelines on using Software Development Kits, and probably have many people monitoring them to make sure they never leak the Development Kit outside of the Game Development studio, hence that is why I believe that the SDK hasn't even been leaked yet at all. And it is quite a shock to everyone as well, knowing that in the past... companies used to leak information out to the general public about trade secrets of Nintendo and what things they're using for developing games, but I'm not sure if we'll ever be seeing anything like that anymore.

    So yep, we'll all be forced to complete Pokémon X and Y without any handy tools for exploiting the games and being able to walk through walls anymore. Since walk through walls was very handy for researching the whole game itself and learn how it was developed. I don't want to be pessimistic or anything, but I doubt 3DS hacking (including Datel and it's Action Replay) would ever come into effect until probably 2016. Which is a very very very very very long time. D:

    Oh well, what can we really do? :'(

        I'm glad that it doesn't.. Sometimes I can't help myself when it comes to hacking and it hampers the experience of the game. I am glad I won't be able to cheat on X & Y.

        I don't use them, so it doesn't bother me. Maybe now I'll see less little kids hampering with their games to get all the good stuff and saying how they're the best and I won't have to seem so elitist anymore.

          I don't care. I've never been or tried hacking into well anything, it ruins the fun of the games. I also don't have much of an interest in fan made games so there's that.

            I used them a while back - they seemed like the best thing since sliced bread. But, the glamour of them wears off, and I don't tend to use them that much anymore. I still use them, sparingly, but I'm not disappointed that I can't use them on X and Y. At least every Pokemon I find will be legit on the GTS now, well, if the GTS makes a return, and it most likely will.

              There's already an Action Replay that supports being run in 3DS
              It allows you to use DS and 3DS codes.
              But no 3DS codes have been created yet to my knowledge.

              I'm a straight up honest to Arceus kind of player. So the lack of AR won't bother me in the slightest. Actually, it'll be nice having not so many players being able to hack the games and take the easy way out or trade hacked Gen VI Pokémon away to unknowing traders.

                The only thing that bothers me about not hacking on the 3DS pokemon wise, is that i would be able to quick hatch eggs. but other than that, it doesn't bother me

                  This will make it difficult to trade since people won't be able to clone their Pokemon -- so things are going to get very interesting later this year.

                    I think it will be a good thing, but at the same time, it hinders competitive players who just don't have the time to EV train and breed for perfect IVs and natures.

                    But hey, they could throw a curve ball and completely redo the system of how EVs and IVs work I guess.

                      Uggggh. When people start messing with Pokemon cartridges, it just makes my skin cringe.
                      I'm glad that the Action Replay isn't available for the 3DS yet, thankfully.

                      As somebody who hatches their own eggs by walking, plans to take the time to actually EV train, gets event Pokemon at events, and essentially does everything the way everything is supposed to be done, I seriously do not understand why you would want to hack the Pokemon games for, unless you are either researching them or making your own non-profit Pokemon game for fun (which is mostly done with Generation I-III games).

                      It doesn't really affect me if they get the AR (or some other device, I don't know) to work with Pokemon X/Y, so in the end it doesn't matter, but I'd vastly prefer if these games stayed mostly hack-free for a while.

                        I'm actually glad there isn't one. It will keep those nooby hacker players offline. In fact, they were the only reason I never went online for trades/battles. I hated the GTS because of the off chance someone would trade me a hacked version of whatever I wanted, and battling because of the players whose Pokemon would one-shot everything I have, even if I knew it wouldn't. (And Wondertombs)

                        The only reason anyone should want one is to research the data and see what bits and pieces make it up, not to help yourself and hurt everyone else.

                          Not really.

                          Usually I'm only interested in hacking games if it makes something unusual or funny happen. Besides I learnt my lesson after using an action reply on my pokemon ruby, it made my game freeze every time I tried to look through my bag.

                          By admission, my only miss would be the inability to grab all those important event Pokémon - yes I have been getting Japanese Keldeo for my Japanese game - by hacking them in. I'd actually have to use the GTS to get my fix of certain legendary Pokémon. There's also no guarantee that any legendary Pokémon will be distributed over Wi-Fi - and they got better in this generation, too.

                          A benefit might be the fact that being a new gen and being on the 3DS, maybe we actually won't get to know the new Pokémon in this generation before The Pokémon Company actually reveal them.
                          On a day just like any other,
                          you suddenly stood up and said,

                          I never really use Action Replay Codes so it doesn't bother me, I prefer playing legitimately.

                            It wouldn't really bother me. All those warnings Nintendo put on their products kinda put me off the idea (even if it's just a scare-tactic, hahaha). I wouldn't want to risk breaking my console/game, since it'd be a while before I'd be able to replace either.

                            I used to use an Action Replay a lot for GBA, and a little bit for Pearl version, but since then I just never tried, I figured 'screw it, I won't risk it'. That's going to be the case for when I get Y version.
                            And if there isn't one, and that means that the GTS won't be full of noobs with ridiculous offers (even if it just cuts down on them), then I'll be glad!

                            I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

                            I wouldn't mind, especially since I never use Action Replays or Gamesharks.

                            I like to play fair and square.

                              Doesn't bother me that AR didn't put anything out because there will probably be a new GTS-abusing system like in 4th gen where you can make your Pokemon online and pick it up at the GTS. That's the only part of cheating that I care about, so I'll be satisfied.

                                Doesn't really affect me in playing through the game. I just use AR after finishing to clone my Pokemon, Check IVs, and get items that takes time to acquire. If ever X and Y won't be "hackable," then Pokemon themselves would be more valuable to traders.

                                For me the lack of a hacking device actually would be annoying. I complete the game without hacking because obviously you ruin the experience if you cheat, but post-game I hack like crazy. Pokémon I can't get without trading (it's just quicker!), good natures, perfect IVs and the likes. I'm a bit weird in that I don't actually play competitively (so don't worry, I won't be unleashing any hacked killing machines on you lot anytime soon) but I enjoy collecting "perfect" pokémon all the same. I must have over 100 perfectly trained pokémon on B2 and it would have taken forever to acquire them were it not for hacking.

                                EDIT: May I ask what the difference between 'no' and 'don't care' are in this poll?

                                Nah. I'm not really into hacking devices(at least, ever since Gen III), so like most others have already said before me, it wouldn't really affect me much, if at all. XD

                                I'll be chasing waterfalls tonight
