Pokémon GO – Global Challenge

The latest Global Challenge takes place this week-end, and Ninatic has shared some details about it. Like the previous ones, there will be a separate mission for each region, and if players in all regions complete theirs, then a special reward is unlocked alongside the specific rewards for each region (that apply to all players worldwide). The special reward is none other than Moltres Day, and an Ultra Bonus to be revealed on September 10th.

Here’s the various missions and rewards:

If the Moltres Day is unlocked, it will take place on September 8th. During the usual 3-hour window, all Gyms will have the legendary bird as Raid Battle. What’s more, Moltres will know Sky Attack (a Charge Move), and may even end up Shiny! Players will also get 5 free Raid Passes.

Finally, here’s the 3 special boxes now available in the in-game store:

  • Special Box (480 Coins): Incense x3, Egg Incubator x2, Premium Raid Pass x2, Ultra Balls x20
