Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee & Pikachu released today, and people have already managed to hack into it. The game is vulnerable to save file edits, and it has a lack of online hack checks. Hacker mattyoukhana said that “My save data was ripped from my game and moved onto my computer where I made the edit. The original Pokemon was a Shiny Ivysaur, I modified to become Mew (you can see remnants of bad editing such as it having a Gender, Mew is Genderless”.
Matt also confirmed that, due to the lack of online hack checks, you can trade the hacked Pokemon with players online. For example,USGamer said that Matt “later traded the Mew online for a Machop with a random player”. USGamer explained why, saying that “while there’s no global trading in Pokemon Let’s Go, the password system allows it to be easily bypassed so players can randomly get paired up with someone online not in their friends group.”.
