    So I am not sure if this is an issue thats currently being worked on but every time I try to load my Balanced Hackmons team sand try to find a match, in the battle it only shows the legal moves, abilities, and formes of the mon. This is really annoying as I am always forced to forfeit and it always happens constantly to me on the PC Client.

    Client Type (ex. PC, Android, Webclient): Windows

    Client Version (if known. Webclient has no version.): v2.7.1

    When did you first notice the bug?: When Going into a battle

    Have you been able to reproduce the bug?: Yes many times

    Here are some pictures showing this (btw my teambuilder is on show illegal):

    This should really be resolved A.S.A.P as it is currently dissalowing BH players from playing the meta properly

    The bug has a long history and is never fixed.
    However, this bug doesn't really stop you from playing the tier properly, it just needs some extra effort to go around it.
    My personal experience is that, every team that needs show [illegal button] to work needs to go at the first several slots of your team builder.
    Say, you have SM OU, SM BH and SM Ubers teams in teambuilder, you have to save SM BH in the first slot.
    Every time you build a hackmon team, you need to save it and restart the program [without logging on to any server]. After restarting the program, if you still cannot see your full sets with all 252EVs/ Moves in team builder, you should manually export and import through text, while keep illegal button on.
    At least the above works for me personally.

    As Joey said in the thread fsk linked, the problem shouldn't need a workaround in the first place. Whilst it can be played currently, it is annoying, and that annoyance can drive people to leave.

    Considering the bug has clearly existed for over a year and a half, I think this is overdue for being fixed.
