    Question Where to draw the line?

    Ok, so I am aware that hacking is frowned upon in Pokefarm? But what constitutes hacking?
    I think it was mentioned before that RNG abuse is not encouraged here.
    But recently I have discovered that I can download Pokemon from Pokecheck. Is that considering cheating, too? (These pokemon cannot be used in battles as they will have premiere ribbon attached)
    Also, are GTS distribution servers allowed?
    Please answer my questions, thank you!

    Anything that isn't built into the Game Cartridge, so sites like Pokecheck, and anything such as Action Replay/Gameshark/etc is considered hacking, as far as I'm aware; there's more to it, but I'll let someone who is a mod/admin fill you in more, as I'm sure they know more than me!

    There may be a rules page on it too...
    This is a signature. Ha.

    That is considered hacking. Unless PokeCheck was created by the Pokemon company and is an official distributor (which it isn't) then it wouldn't be considered hacking.

    Hacking: Using out-of-game devices like GameShark of Action Replay to tamper with the game and games Pokemon (whether you tamper with the IV's/EV's of a Pokemon whether you bred/captured the Pokemon legitimately or using it to create a perfect Pokemon).

    If someone has a Shiny Arceus with all 31's except for maybe 1 or 2 stats that are 29's, that's suspicious (and obvious).

    RNG abuse is considered hacking on here. Otherwise general rule of thumb is that if you didn't acquire through legit game play it is a hack.
