Pokésav

Intro
Despite this benefit, there is still the risk of corrupting a save file while using Pokésav. As a precaution it is strongly advised that anyone attempting to use the program back up their save file before doing so.
 
To combat the usage of programs like Pokésav, Nintendo has banned the use of all Pokémon they determine to be "hacked" from online play. This includes such Pokémon with impossible movesets, abilities, or genders that they're not supposed to have such as a {{p|Spiritomb}} [[Wondertomb|with]] {{a|Wonder Guard}} or a male {{p|Chansey}}. However, sometimes Nintendo's servers cannot differentiate edited Pokémon from trained Pokémon, so these legitimate-looking Pokémon are often let through.
 
When the early version of {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}'s Pokésav was released, Sinnoh location names were still in the program, making it difficult to set some values. This was later fixed in the Japanese version, though the current English version (.03a) still lacks this important update.
