Dear Customer,

Thank you for always enjoying the “Pokemon” series.

We have confirmed that some users are playing the “Pokemon” series and “Pokémon HOME” using illegally modified data.

We will take the following measures in order for users who cause trouble to other users, such as trading Pokemon, or users who are deemed inappropriate in terms of operation.

■ Supported content

・Restrictions on the use of exchange functions in ”
Pokémon HOME” (smartphone version) ・Suspension of use of “Pokémon HOME” (both smartphone and Nintendo Switch versions)
・”Pokémon Bank” Restrictions on the use of “removal” from to “Pokémon HOME” *We will not refund the usage fee due to this correspondence. *We will not be able to respond to any inquiries regarding the content of the fraudulent activity and the details of this response. * Internet restrictions will not be enforced for software for Nintendo Switch other than the “Pokemon” series and “Pokémon HOME”.

We will continue to take similar measures on a regular basis, and may implement further restrictions without prior notice.

In addition, after confirming the details, this response is only implemented for users who have been found to have committed inappropriate acts.
There are no restrictions on users who unintentionally possess modified data, such as “I accidentally received it in exchange”, “I didn’t realize it myself, but the exchanged data was modified”. Please be assured that it is not.

In order to ensure that all users can enjoy the game with peace of mind, we will regularly monitor the game and will continue to work on dealing with fraudulent and nuisance activities.

We look forward to your continued support of the Pokemon series.
