Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Bans Cheaters on Consoles Ahead of Launch

With every new series entry, developer Game Freak and publisher Nintendo are hyping up huge Pokémon fan-community as they are waiting for upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet to arrive on Nintendo Switch handheld consoles shortly.

Over weeks ahead of its release, some players were able to get their hands on early leaked copy of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. Recently, people are seemingly getting banned on Switch consoles and Pokémon Home for using hacked versions.

Nintendo is currently banning players who hacked their games on consoles and Pokémon Home subscription service to limit cheats. Once barred, people won't be able to access online features such as battling and trading with others online.

In a previous instance, players using Surprise Trade feature in Pokémon Sword and Shield led to crash if they traded hacked Pokémon. To protect players from similar experience, The Pokémon Company is blocking any possible hackers now.

Whether or not Scarlet & Violet bans are temporary or permanent is not clear yet but these are really necessary to curb in-game cheaters. Nintendo had to act fast before launch to disrupt any attempt to trade by hackers to protect players.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has already suffered from a leak after street date was broken and it led to spoilers flooding social media sites. Although a ban through Pokémon Home limits online access, it won't stop you to enjoy single-player.
