Can You Get Banned for Using Fake Amiibo?

by Doc – Owner, Founder, FBI Most Wanted for using amiibo cards

No, you can’t get banned for using fake amiibo. The way amiibo technology works, there is no technical difference between an amiibo figure produced by Nintendo and a cheap $0.30 NTAG215 chip that you just programmed yourself with Tagmo.

There is a possibility one day that Nintendo could change how amiibo are scanned to potentially break Powersaves for Amiibo, but a physical NTAG215 chip will always work with Nintendo Switch because that’s the exact kind of chip that official amiibo figures are made from.
