Pokemon Home Has A Tracking System To Stop Cloned Pokemon

The folks at Project Pokemon have figured out a new system that Pokemon Home had implemented in order to stop cloned Pokemon and potentially hacked Pokemon.

According to Kaphotics, any Pokemon that is stored on Pokemon Home will receive a tracker value that is assigned by the server. This value will be stored in a new field in the Pokemon data itself as well as the Pokemon Home server.

This tracker value could be used as a way to stop cloned Pokemon from entering the system, as any Pokemon that has the same tracker value and is sent to Pokemon Home will be automatically deleted. However, this could be easily circumvented by manually deleting the tracker value before sending the Pokemon to Pokemon Home.

We don’t know everything about what this tracker value does yet, so more research has to be done, though it could be a way to stop hacked Pokemon as well.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks, Jason.
