Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon – QR codes

Pokémon Sun and Moon introduced a brand new feature: QR codes. There are actually two kinds of codes, and they do not work the same way. The Pokédex QR codes allows you to automatically mark a Pokémon as seen in your Pokédex. The distribution QR codes allow you to immediately get a Pokémon, but can only be used after reaching a certain point in the game and are region-locked.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon – Distribution QR Codes

As mentioned above, those allow you to immediately get a Pokémon (generally via a special event in-game), instead of simply adding it to your Pokédex. The QR codes are region-locked, so you can only use those from your region!

[Japan] “I Choose You” Cap Pikachu, distributed on a Pokémon Ga-Olé disc to players going to see the latest Pokémon movie in theatres (from July 15) [more details and pictures]
[Europe, North America] Pokémon: I Choose You Cap Pikachu – Serial Code available to fans who go watch the latest Pokémon movie in theatres in November (QR Code is the same for both regions) [more details]

[Europe] Magearna (can only be scanned after beating the Elite 4) (thanks Serebii) [more details]

[North America] Magearna (can only be scanned after beating the Elite 4) [more details]

[Japan] Magearna (can only be scanned after beating the Elite 4) (QR code courtesy of Shelton) 

Here’s how to get Magearna:

  1. Complete the main story
  2. Choose the QR Scanner function
  3. Line up the QR code for Magearna while pressing the R Button
  4. Visit the deliveryman at the Antiquities of the Ages shop in Hau’oli City to get Magearna
  5. Be sure to save your game!

NB: the QR Code is actually from Pokémon Sun and Moon, but works in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon even if you already used it in the previous game. However, you can only use it once in each game (Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon… so a total of 4 times, if you happen to have all 4 games).

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon – Pokédex QR codes

Pokédex QR Codes allow you to mark a Pokémon as seen in your Pokédex. You also get 10 points for each QR Code scanned (20 for special QR Codes), and when you have 100 points, you can use Island Scan to get rare Pokémon, usually not found in Alola. The Pokémon you can get depends on the island you’re on, but also the day. Thanks lycilla for the data!

Next, the QR Codes for all the Pokémon available in the game, but first, a few words about them:

  • the galleries below include all variants (shiny, gender, etc.). If you see something missing, make sure to let us know!
  • the galleries do not include Pokémon without QR Codes (Legendary, etc.)
  • the gallery is split in several galleries, because the gallery script really doesn’t like having so many images at once. We apologise for this inconvenience, and invite you to check out every gallery if you don’t see the Pokémon you’re looking for at first galance. The Pokémon are listed in the same order as they appear in-game.
