    The official website announced that 5.954 players are banned.
    As a result these players:
    - will be excluded from the rankings of any Rating Battle they have participated in thus far.
    - will not be able to participate in any future Online Competitions.
    - will no longer be able to use Game Sync, play in Rating Battles, or participate in Online Competitions or Global Missions using the game with which they performed unauthorized data modification.

    So from what I've heard, this system still can't catch people with genned pokemon unless they have illegal moves or something.

    The people who are being banned are mostly those who has altered information on their save file(?) for example, modifying the dex to completion, or getting unreal numbers of limited items or such. They say it's because game sync recognizes these abnormal changes in the game and is able to ban people accordingly.
