Pokémon Sun and Moon‘s second global event is now underway, challenging players to catch as many Pokémon as they can after using the Island Scan function.
If players manage to find 1 million Pokémon using Island Scan by January 9th, they will get 2,017 Festival Coins. If they fail to reach the goal, then 217 Festival Coins will be awarded for participating. Players who have registered their Game Sync ID at the Pokémon Global Link will earn double the amount of coins.
Players must follow these steps to take part:
- 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.
- Enter Festival Plaza’s central castle.
- Speak to the global mission receptionist on the right and let her know you want to participate in the global mission.
- 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.
Nintendo has provided players with five QR codes to get them started. They can be found here.
