Ban lists work in a way that you can’t interact with other people anymore when we find out that you cheated. It’s just that this advances the experience for other players when no cheaters are around.
We can easily detect cheaters by points upload history or illegal Pokémon level - move combination and so on.
Q: What does it mean to get banned?
A: It just means that you cannot update your points/rank anymore or trade with other people. You won’t be able to use other online features, too. You will still be able to play your online save though. Your rank will change to “Lonely".
Q: Can I get unbanned?
A: If you think you got banned for no reason, consider to PM one of the Admins (including me) on the forums. We will treat you nicely and try to do our bests if you got banned for no reason.
Q: Do I have a second chance?
A: No. When you are banned for a reason, we won’t unban you.

A: We are manually banning accounts of possible cheaters. We are not using a bot to do that. We are also examining the actions the player did on this profile.
