Is using Pokedit legit ? or am I doing something wrong?

What I mean is, is it technically "cheating" although it says it's perfectly legal, and all that. I was just wondering what people think if it's idk, wrong to use websites such as pokedit, pokegen etc.

I have tried using Pokébuilder before and there has been no harm to my White 2.

Really, anything that you use that ISN'T your Pokemon game (or anything else that is not LICENSED or ENDORSED by Nintendo) to get items/Pokemon/events in your Pokemon game is cheating.
Obviously things like distributions from GameStop or getting a Pokemon from a trade is fine- trading is getting a Pokemon from another game legibly, and the distributions are Nintendo events.

-So it would be bad to use PokeSav/Pokedit Pokemon in a tournament.

You are using these things to generate the Pokemon you want without working or breeding for it.

By no means am I chewing you out :p I enjoy messing around with this kinda thing for fun, but obviously don't use them anywhere but in-game.

See what Nintendo says about cheating here.
They mention not using these Pokemon at official events.

Hope this helped :)
