The Pokémon Global Link for XY and ORAS will close in late October 2016 but will be upgraded to support Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Press Release - Closure of the Pokémon Global Link service for Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y

With the release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the Pokémon Global Link (PGL) will end its current Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y service. The PGL service will be updated to work with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

After the current PGL service ends, you won't be able to link Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y with the PGL, or see data from these games reflected on the PGL. However, you will still be able to use the other non-PGL services via the Internet. Please see the following "Services" section for details.

We thank you very much for enjoying the current PGL since October 2013. We hope you'll have fun in the updated PGL! End date of the Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y PGL service Planned for late October, 2016

  • New registration of a game is still available until the current service ends. However, please note that the service that works with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y will end, and you won't be able to use various features.
  • You can't transfer Poké Miles from the Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y version of the PGL to the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon version of the PGL.
  • If you use Game Sync, the message "The service has been discontinued. (Error Code: 090-0211)" will be displayed.
  • You can keep trading Pokémon at the Global Trade Station (GTS), but you won't be able to see your trading log on the PGL.
  • After the current service ends, you won't be able to participate in Random Matchup Rating Battles with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y.
  • Even after the current service ends, you'll be able to keep enjoying the features of Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y using the Internet, such as Random Matchup Free Battles, the GTS, and Wonder Trades.

Description
The 2016 International Challenge March gave players even more opportunities to fine-tune their teams for Video Game Championship Series events. Players could test their best strategies against other tough competitors in preparation for their next big live tournament. The top finishers were eligible to earn Championship Points as progress toward an invitation to the Pokémon World Championships in August 2016.

All battles were played in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Players could bring in Pokémon from earlier games via Poké Transporter. All Pokémon above Lv. 50 were set to Lv. 50 for the duration of the match.

The competition used the Double Battles format and players had to register 6 of their level 1–100 Pokémon to their Battle Box. Pokémon automatically became Level 50 during battles. A 15-minute time limit for each match was automatically enforced in-game, beginning at the start of each battle. If the outcome had not been determined when the time limit expired, the game automatically applied tiebreakers to determine a winner. At the beginning of each battle, players had 90 seconds to select their Pokémon to battle with. At the beginning of each turn, players had 45 seconds to select a move or change Pokémon in battle. If a player had not made his or her selections at the end of this period, the game automatically made selections for the player. Players could battle up to 15 games per day of the competition. Any unplayed games would carry over to the following day.

Singapore Summer 15 Shiny Rayquaza Banned from Official Play

Posted by Sunain | January 25th 2016 at 04:36 PM EST

The Summer 15 Shiny Rayquaza that was distributed in Singapore from May 5th, 2015 until July 31st, 2015 via serial codes has been banned from official Video Game tournaments and events. The official Japanese Pokémon Global Link website made the announcement on January 21st, 2016 but it had previously been noticed that it couldn't be traded over the Internet. The single quote in the OT before 15 triggers the hack check system. The ban does not affect other distributed event Rayquaza's from participating in official events though. Despite being distributed in Singapore, Japanese or North American region copies of X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire could obtain it. Further details on this Shiny Rayquaza are available in our Event Pokémon Database.
