I HATE cheaters! Unless it's to get an Event Pokemon you can't get otherwise... then I suppose it's alright. Actually, I also use "walk anywhere" from time to time, just because it's fun. User: Ph34rshallriseagain

We still should have an article about it, if that's why you brought up the subject...

I think there should be lists of gameshark codes on Bulbapedia... I know a lot of people are 'against' codes, but I think a Wiki should strive to include all the information about the pokemon games possible, especially considering that gameshark codes are so well-known in the history of pokemon games ^^

I'm not sure how to start making pages for codes though, and how they should be laid out on a page... can anyone help out? --Malorie 11:20, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree. But there are so many anti-cheater extremists that I think it would be impossible. Saying that you never cheated on a Pokémon game in your life is a down right lie. --File:Ani048MS.gifケンジFile:Ani183MS.gifガールFile:Ani123MS.gif 11:31, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, as long as we take a 'Neutral Point of View' approach, and post them for the purpose of complete information for a Pokemon wiki, I personally think it should be okay. ^^ There won't (or shouldn't) be any kind of extremist drama either way as long as there's a NPOV stance. :3 --Malorie 12:29, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

No, No. NO Gameshark codes! We are an informitive wiki, NOT an on-line strategy guide! User:Theryguy512/Sig 13:54, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Firstly, what's not informative about listing codes? Secondly, how do you explain the 'game guides' category on Bulbapedia? --Malorie 19:27, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Codes completely ruin the point of playing the game!User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 19:28, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
And that's a neutral stance on things how? It'd be like someone saying a page for Scientology shouldn't be on Wikipedia because they think it's 'morally wrong'. Regardless of peoples view on it, the information should still be posted from a neutral stance. Besides, lets not forget about people who use codes to play the game a second time with a different experience, ie. having a different starting pokemon, or people who use codes to explore the games programming and such. --Malorie 19:39, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
And all I'm getting is that you want the codes.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 19:40, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Also, someone did post them a few days ago. I erased them.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 19:41, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I want the codes to be listed on Bulbapedia, if that's what you mean. Isn't Bulbapedia designed to be a resource for all things Pokemon? Deleting pages of information, despite how factual and accurate it is, seems somewhat silly to me. If nothing else, I think at the very least, external links to such codes should exist. Blocking out an entire aspect of Pokemon because some users frown upon it (and, conversely, some people approve and encourage it), seems to defeat the point of having a wiki in the first place. --Malorie 20:40, 5 January 2008 (UTC)\
You're not getting it, are you.. cheating is frowned upon here. We are not Wikipedia. We don't have anything on cheating because we don't allow it, hence why pages on GameShark codes and the like are deleted, mainly because they are a bunch of of 'unencyclopedic' bullsh*t. If you want cheating codes, go somewhere else. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 20:43, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Bulbapedia =/= Wikipedia. Cheating is frowned upon here. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 19:42, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
im a cheater, but i only cheat with whats given to me. so, while i may not magically create an Arceus, i may magically create an Azure Flute.... User:MAGNEDETH/Sig 21:03, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

I have not cheated, but thats cause I'm not smart enough to go find them. And I have no Gameshark. --133Darth196Cookie197Monster471 22:46, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Spotting Cheaters

Would it be worth adding a "How to spot some Hacked Pokemon" section. It wouldn't be able to tell you about all Pokemon but some such as the Eevees and ther evolutions and starts and a few others - it could help those online avoid cheats Phantom
