The Pokemon series has long had to contend with hacked creatures, and this is now something that Pokemon Home is looking to deal with. As revealed by an in-game notice, anti-cheating measures are planned to address Pokemon “with altered attributes”.
The full notice reads:
“Thank you very much for your continued support of Pokémon HOME. We have addressed an issue regarding Pokémon with altered attributes being deposited in Pokémon HOME. The details are below.
It has come to our attention that some users have deposited Pokémon with altered attributes to Pokémon HOME, causing the app to function in ways that were not intended. In response, we will be addressing the presence of these altered Pokémon in Pokémon HOME.”
According to what’s stated in Pokemon Home, “the altered Pokemon addressed in this notice cannot be obtained through any of Pokemon Home’s trading systems or through normal gameplay in any game in the Pokemon series.” In other words, hacked creatures wouldn’t have been encountered accidentally.
