Some Pokemon you get through Spell Swap are too good to be true.

Some Pokemon you get through Spell Swap are too good to be true.

Pokemon Crimson and Crimson aren’t spared either: If you use the spell exchange function, you unfortunately have to expect to get bots. They advertise dubious websites and give you really good, rare, dazzling Pokemon. They’re often too good to be true – they’re hacked Pokemon. You should better keep your hands off them.

Crashes also followed in the past: For a while, those hacked Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield could even cause the game to just completely crash. Spell swapping crashed games. However, there doesn’t seem to be any crashes in Crimson and Crimson.
