The Pokémon X & Y Version 1.2 patch is out now!
Version 1.2 has been released for Pokémon X and Y and is available from the eShop. This patch is required to go online with the games as of December 12th, 2013. This patch fixes the exploits which allowed players to see Pokémon data being transmitted during wireless communication (be it battles or trades).
DO NOT OFFER LINKS TO THIS PROGRAM OR POST WAYS TO OBTAIN IT IN THIS THREAD
In an effort to save honest players from undue grief in online battles, everyone should be made aware that there is a new exploit in use for Pokémon X/Y Wi-Fi battles.
The "Battle Analyser" program works much the same for battles as the "Instacheck" program does for trades. A PC is set up as a wireless hotspot to intercept data from the Pokémon games, and upon the opponent clicking confirm on the battle screen, the program loads information on their entire party and then displays the attacks selected before each turn during the battle. This affects all online battle modes.
This program is a tremendous detriment to the competitive nature of Pokémon battles. It is our hope that, in fully exposing this program to the public, Game Freak will quickly take the necessary steps to block the exploit.
Please use Twitter and any other social media outlets to let your displeasure be known!
In any case, an anti-cheat program is being developed as an interim solution if people would like to contribute: http://nuggetbridge.com/forums/topic...ity-initiative

This is where the community steps in. For the cheat jammer to be most effective, it needs to be able to send realistic-looking movesets, and have enough variation so that opponents can't be sure of which moveset you're running. I'm looking to the community to help create a database of standardized movesets to come with the cheat jammer. Players will still have the option of adding custom movesets to their own databases, tailored to suit their teams. Also, the jammer will randomly modify some of the spreads and IVs as to not look too uniform.
Rated Battles are disabled until further notice.
