Default Your Thoughts About Cloning Pokemon

I was quite curious about the concept. So I tried it out and it works. Although I don't plan on using this method I was curious to see the 3ds forums thoughts on the subject.

I personally don't have a problem with it, though it's less useful than it used to be.

Since it's become so easy to scrub EVs, and breeding is easier than ever, there's less of a need to have backups in case you mess something up.

Though being able to backup your pok?mon in general is always nice, in case something disastrous happens to your main game.

I find it disgusting and unethical.

Just kidding. I don't have a problem with it and I'll probably be cloning some of my own Pokemon for when Pokebank releases.

It's useful for limited distributions of Pokemon

Is it only possible in pokemon emerald, or are there other games that can easily clone pokemon legitimately?

I personally don't mind it, as it still produces legal Pokemon that have no evident advantage in battle, and can be convenient for obtaining rare events, Pokemon, or just making trades easier rather than having to breed and raise a new Pokemon.

Why should I even ask for fair trades now?

X and Y have a cloning glitch, but it requires 2 copies and 2 3ds'.

D/P (not sure about Platinum) had one involving the GTS. It can be risky, but I've cloned many Pokemon that way.

I've never got a shiny in gen 3 but when I do I will mass clone 5 boxes, get them to gen 6 and give them away on wonder trade.

I have no problems with it. Had to clone some of my shinies over to Y from X and some to friends.

Meh. I just don't like that the GTS is clogged up with requests for level 1 legendaries. If it weren't for that, I'd be ok with it.

That has nothing to do with cloning. That's just people being assholes.

Oh, did they fix that? I just assumed it was the same since last gen.

The only current cloning method is the save game method.

Impossible trades is just something the GTS will be cursed with until Gamefreak actually addresses it.

Pokemon emerald is the safest way to do it though.
