The Pokemon Company is putting down the banhammer on players who host and participate in hacked raids in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
According to various reports, participants of a hacked raid are banned for 2 months, while hosts of a hacked raid are banned forever from Pokemon Sword and Shield’s online services. Players are advised not to participate in hacked raids.
Just a PSA: Unless there's a group of people trolling us, both host and participants of hacked raids are being banned (albeit for different durations).
Please do not join a hacked raid if you ever do come across one!
