Pokemon Sword and Shield is available now, exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here. While Pagpie’s story is discouraging, it does have a happy ending. Pagpie ended up with some legitimate Shiny Pokemon from their fellow posters as a gift for their troubles. It just goes to show the real kindness and passion of the Pokemon community. At the end of the day, the Shiny Pokemon Pagpie received from their fellow posters just might end up being more meaningful than that Cinderace ever would have!
Are you a fan of Pokemon Sword and Shield? Have you ever gotten a hacked Pokemon in the game? Let us know in the comments or share your thoughts directly on Twitter at @Marcdachamp to talk all things gaming! Pagpie’s story is a good cautionary tale for fans of Pokemon Sword and Shield! Oftentimes, hacked Pokemon are sent out to unsuspecting players in the game. This has happened to me, but my traded Pokemon had a website address as the nickname, as opposed to the name of the original trainer. Players can get banned for using Pokemon that have been hacked, regardless of whether or not it was received in a trade. When getting a great trade in the game, players always want to check these details to prevent themselves from dealing with future issues.
