With every new iteration of Pokemon, things seemed to be more streamlined. Hacked Pokemon seem to be no exception. If you’ve done any system updates on your 3DS in the last two weeks or so, then the codes probably won’t work for you. And if they do, be warned: The trick gets old fast. It reminds me of the open sandbox element in Grand Theft Auto games in that, when given the ability to do anything, I want to do nothing. Some of the Pokes are for novelty purposes, others are horrendously game breaking. Regardless, if you’re able to get the codes to work on your game, then have at, but be prepared for the trick to lose its luster rather hastily. Get the ones you want, then update and take Nintendo’s free bribe gift of Pokemon Shuffle, the glorified (but surprisingly not bad) Candy Crush clone.
