Almost 6,000 Players Banned From ‘Pokemon Sun And Moon’ For Using Third Party Software
“Pokemon Sun and Moon” has banned 5,954 players for using third party software to alter their saved game data. The banned players will no longer be able to participate in battle competitions and even global missions. More players are said to be banned for cheating in the future.

It is considered cheating and the company has already banned thousands of players who did it. Players who are banned will get an error code 090-0212 and will greatly limit their game experience permanently.
In an article from iDigitalTimes, it is mentioned that there are two reasons for a player to be banned from the game. One is by receiving an alleged hacked file from the Wonder Trade and the other is by deliberately using a third party program to alter their game data. Unfortunately, this also includes legit players who weren’t aware that they are violating rules can also be banned from the game so players are advised to be careful and take the time to read the manual of the game.
