Participate in the New “Find Pokémon Using Island Scan!” Global Mission

The “Find Pokémon Using Island Scan!” global mission is now active in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Find and then defeat or catch as many Pokémon as you can after using the Island Scan function in your game by January 9, 2017, at 00:00 UTC!

The Island Scan feature in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon helps you find rare Pokémon that you can’t usually locate in the Alola region. Before you can use this great tool to find rare Pokémon, you’ll need to earn 100 points by scanning QR Code patterns with the QR Scanner. Here’s what you need to know to get started.

You can find different types of QR Code patterns in various places, including:

• Alola Pokédex QR Code: These QR Code patterns are displayed in your Pokédex when you catch Pokémon. Scan these QR Code patterns from a friend’s game to earn 10 points for each scan.
• Special QR Code: These QR Code patterns are specially prepared for the QR Scanner. Each QR Code pattern contains information about a particular Pokémon. For example, those who have completed the main story in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon can now get the Mythical Pokémon Magearna via the QR Scanner. You’ll earn 20 points for each Special QR Code pattern scan.

Once you have earned at least 100 points in a single day by scanning QR Code patterns, Island Scan becomes available on the QR Scanner screen. Select Island Scan or press the X Button. Next, press the R Button or A Button to start scanning for a Pokémon that you won’t find elsewhere in Alola. When you pick up the trace of a nearby Pokémon, you’ll only have a short time to find it and catch it, so be ready. You can use this feature only once per day, so scan more QR Code patterns every day for the chance to encounter another of these Pokémon.

If everyone teams up to find 1 million Pokémon using Island Scan, you’ll get 2,017 Festival Coins (in honor of the new year). If the goal isn’t reached, you’ll still get 217 Festival Coins for participating. As a bonus, players who have registered their Game Sync ID at the Pokémon Global Link will earn double the Festival Coins—434 Festival Coins for participating or 4,034 Festival Coins for reaching the global goal!

Follow these steps to join the global mission:
1. Enter Festival Plaza in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon by selecting it in your in-game menu, which you’ll find by pressing the X Button.
2. Enter Festival Plaza’s central castle.
3. Speak to the global mission receptionist on the right and let her know you want to participate in the global mission.
4. Remember to return before the mission ends to sync your game to add to the global count! Once you are participating in the global mission, talk to the receptionist to have your progress sent to the server. Also, if you have registered your game to a PGL account, simply connecting to the Internet while in Festival Plaza will cause your game to sync automatically, which will send your progress to the server.

How to Check Your Progress Toward the Global Goal

Talk to the receptionist to check on the overall progress toward the goal and to update your own progress as well. You can also check on the progress by visiting the home page of the Pokémon Global Link.

Good luck participating in the “Find Pokémon Using Island Scan!” global mission!

Here are five Special QR Code patterns for you to scan in your game to get started:

Memento and Parting Shot Moves Temporarily Restricted from Battle Spot

We've discovered a bug that affects the moves Memento and Parting Shot during online battles using Battle Spot. While we fix this bug, Memento and Parting Shot moves will be prohibited in Free Battles, Rating Battles, and Online Tournaments in Battle Spot. If any of the Pokémon in your Battle Team has either of these moves, you won't be able to start a battle.

Work Together to Complete Global Missions

Band together with your fellow Trainers in global missions, a new feature of the Pokémon Global Link. Global missions are limited-time events where everyone tries to meet a collective goal. If the goal is met, everyone who participated gets a global mission reward! Don't worry if the goal isn't reached—there will still be a global mission participation prize for everyone who chipped in.

The first global mission will be for Trainers to catch as many Pokémon as they can to reach the collective goal. If everyone combines their efforts to catch 100 million Pokémon between November 29 and December 13, 2016, each participant will receive 1,000 Festival Coins as a reward. If the goal isn’t met, Trainers who contributed will still receive a participation prize of 100 Festival Coins. To be sure that your Pokémon bounty gets included in the final count, be sure to use Game Sync by December 13.

Good luck in completing the first global mission, and remember to check back at the Pokémon Global Link for more global missions coming soon.

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced new evolutions for the starters, gameplay features and a special demo for the upcoming Pokémon games Sun and Moon. High resolution images from the press release have been added to our Imageboard thread.

FIRST-PARTNER POKÉMON EVOLUTIONS, A SPECIAL DEMO VERSION AND MORE ANNOUNCED FOR POKÉMON SUN AND POKÉMON MOON!

New Pokémon, gameplay features, a Special Demo Version and Mega Evolution details revealed for upcoming Pokémon games.
The Pokémon Company International showcased a bunch of new information for the latest games in the Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, coming to Europe on 23 November and available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

The evolved forms of the three first-partner Pokémon, Dartrix, Torracat and Brionne, were unveiled:

Dartrix Torracat Brionne
Thumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail
Type: Grass-Flying Type: Fire Type: Water
The Blade Quill Pokémon Dartrix evolves from Rowlet. Dartrix attacks by throwing its knife-edged feathers, and it possesses extremely sharp senses. This Pokémon can detect opponents behind it and can throw feathers to strike them without even seeing them. This Pokémon cares a great deal about its appearance, grooming its feathers in every spare moment it has. The Fire Cat Pokémon Torracat evolves from Litten. This Pokémon produces flames for its attacks from a bell-like sac attached at the base of its throat. Torracat has a great love for battle and will attack relentlessly. Its mane can sense what is going on around it, even in the dark, and is able to detect the presence of hidden enemies. The Pop Star Pokémon Brionne evolves from Popplio. Brionne can dance in perfect time with others and is always cheery and positive. A very hard worker, Brionne learns dances by imitating other members of its colony and can sometimes even learn dances from humans. As this Pokémon dances, it creates balloons and slaps them into its target, making them explode and deal damage to its opponents.

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, communication features are gathered together in the new Festival Plaza. Players will be able to see other people playing near them, or other players that are connected to the internet to battle or trade. By talking to people and listening to their requests in Festival Plaza, players can receive Festival Coins. There are cool stores to spend Festival Coins in, such as dye houses, goody shops (where rare items are sold) and even bouncy castles for Pokémon to train in. As players gather more Festival Coins, their Festival Plaza will rank up, yielding rewards and making more activities available. Players will even gain the ability to host missions, where multiple players can work together to try to achieve certain goals.

Another new feature that was announced was Poké Pelago. In Poké Pelago, Pokémon that are stored in a PC Box can explore a variety of isles, play on athletic equipment and enjoy other fun activities. If players send many Pokémon to Poké Pelago, they can develop more facilities on the isles and also develop new kinds of isles. As these isles are developed and increase in number, they will allow players to obtain items and even raise Pokémon.

Mega Evolution is making a return as well. Pokémon that were able to Mega Evolve in previous Pokémon games will also be able to Mega Evolve in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. The Mega Stones for Pokémon with the capability to Mega Evolve that appear in the Alola region may be received from characters in the game or obtained from special shops.

The Pokémon Global Link will be updated for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and will be available from the games’ launch date. The updated Pokémon Global Link site will have new features, including new online competitions, global missions and more. More information and features on the upcoming site can be found here.

The Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version was also unveiled and will be available to download directly from Nintendo eShop or via the official Nintendo website starting from 18 October. The Special Demo Version introduces players to the Alola region and features Ash-Greninja, the Pokémon that appears alongside the hero Ash in the animated TV series Pokémon the Series: XYZ. Players will be able to transfer their Ash-Greninja from the Special Demo Version to their full version of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon once the game launches on 23 November.
