If you have been wondering how players are using Pokemon X and Y hacks to get shiny Xerneas, mega Latios and Diancie into the game, we can tell you that it is all down to PowerSaves for 3DS. It now has support for Pokemon X and Y cheats and some have also been using this method to clone Pokemon as well.
While most obviously prefer to play Pokemon X and Y without hacking, it is also fair to say that hacking has now become a standard feature of the game – whether Nintendo and Game Freak like it or not.
The debate will always go on of course, but then so will the use of Pokemon X and Y Power Saves. Many players already have Diancie on their game, while others are desperately trying to trade a Mega Latios and Latias after finding out that these unreleased Pokemon are also already in circulation online.
Most recently, PowerSave cheats have also been used, showing how to get AZ’s Floette in Pokemon X and Y, which we told you about in a separate report here. From what we have seen though, the biggest use of this software is cloning and making multiple copies of unreleased Pokemon for trading, giveaways or just for bragging rights.
We’ve found a video below which one user even goes to the length of giving a step by step tutorial on how to use PowerSaves 3DS to clone on Pokemon X and Y. Once again, we’re not saying you should all jump on the bandwagon and get your own PowerSaves from Amazon – but you should at least be aware of the method in which this is all happening.
It’s down to Nintendo to clamp down on it in our opinion and we hope they find some solution to this to make it a fair playing ground during Pokemon X and Y WiFi battles.
Are you using PowerSaves for Pokemon X and Y at the moment? If so, give us your personal reasons as to why you think it is necessary.
