Players of Pokémon video games can move their pocket monsters from one generation to the next using the Pokémon HOME service, which is accessible on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
The 3DS version of Pokémon Bank's replacement uses a subscription model to provide online trading and access to the GTS.
But as is frequently the case with Pokémon games, there are lots of cheaters, and the internet service is contaminated with hundreds of Pokémon that have been illegally stolen or altered.
The Pokémon Company frequently tries to punish those gamers who provide Pokémon that can disturb not just the games' strategic balance but also their gameplay.
The Pokémon HOME service as well as the online components of Pokémon games may impose temporary or permanent bans on players who have been found guilty, according to an update to the application released today.
According to the press release, only players who have modified their Pokémon on purpose or who frequently trade them online, for example, are impacted.
For instance, if you acquired one of these prohibited Pokémon through a miracle exchange, you should not be concerned.
In order to get the service ready for the release of compatibility with Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet games in 2023, the cleanup is anticipated to take place during the upcoming few weeks.
