While there are several links that offers full game access and online playability, the party seemed short-lived as 3DS users report started to trickle down that they were kicked off the game.

While pirates started to live just like any other legit players for the time being, different sources posted that "Pokemon Sun and Moon" wannabes are not allowed anymore. Particular effect of the ban is being wiped out of online access, attempts to purchase via eshop and redownload were also blocked. The biggest setback for those who pirated the game is traceable imprints that will necessitate to purchasing another Nintendo 3DS, Kotaku said.

Several Nintendo 3DS users who installed pirated "Pokemon Sun and Moon" call the ban as extremely suppressive. The whole device got restricted online access and instructs gamers to visit support.nintendo.com for possible fix. But again, a stern message from the tech giant was already causing commotion. Some players have already tried contacting Nintendo for a fix but to no avail.

Interestingly, there are players who opt not to cry over spilt milk resulting from pirating "Pokemon Sun and Moon." The final piece of argument is that pirating Nintendo's game means hacking 3DS console.

Witty players suggest that a good fix is to purchase a good Nintendo 3DS and juicing up its information to be transferred to affected 3DS. Then the unit can be returned to the retailer. Of course, this could make the future "Pokemon Sun and Moon" player of that unit wreck havoc when he found out he was conned.
