The second Pokémon Sun and Moon Global Mission is here (and easier)!
The second Global Mission in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon is now live, and once again tasks players from all around the world to work together in order to accomplish a specific goal. Seeing as how the previous Global Mission was not completed – with trainers only catching roughly 16.5 million Pokémon of the 100 million Pokémon goal – GameFreak has made things a little easier on players this time around.
Beginning on December 27, 2016, and lasting until January 9, 2017, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon players are challenged to either capture or defeat a collective total one million Pokémon by using Island Scan – a special feature that allows trainers to search for rare Pokémon that would not normally appear in the wild. Using the Island Scan feature requires trainers to use 100 points, which in turn are earned by scanning QR codes. Players can only scan one QR code every two hours (and can bank a maximum of 10), however, so make sure not to use either feature recklessly!
Not only does the second Global Mission present an easier challenge, but it also offers a better reward. Should trainers from around the world manage to meet their collective goal, all participants will be rewarded with 2017 Festival Coins. 217 Festival Coins will be awarded if the goal is not met. Players will also receive double the amount of Festival Coins if they register their game to a Pokémon Global Link account. The event has already started, so what are you waiting for? Get out there and start scanning!
