Pokémon Sun and Moon

On November 28th, the Pokémon Sun & Moon World’s Fastest Capture Guide will be released in Japan. It will come with a special QR Code, which will allow you to easily find where Togedemaru can be found in the wild when scanned.

As for the Pokémon Sun & Moon Official Guide Book, it will come with a special serial code. This code gives you a Gold Bottle Cap, which does boost the IVs to its maximum (as was speculated in the V-Jump’s video, a few days ago).
