Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon
Today, the second Global Mission for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon ended, and unlike the first one, it was a success. Players were tasked with earning 1 000 000 Beach Points via Mantine Surfing, and they ended earning 8 543 244 BP in total. As a result, all players are getting at least 2 000 FC as a reward, with Pokémon Global Link members getting twice that amount (so 4 000 FC).
To claim your reward, all you have to do is go talk to the clerk at the Castle, in the Festival Plaza (same place you registered for the Global Mission in the first place)! You can find more details about the various Global Missions for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on this page!
Also, if you took part in the Johto x Alola Battle Competition, you can now claim your participation prize. All you have to do is to log in on to the Pokémon Global Link, and click on this link. Once you have your Serial Code, you can redeem it in-game via the Mystery Gift menu (Receive Gift > Get with Code/Password). You have until January 30th to enter the code and claim your 50 BP!
Speaking of the Pokémon Global Link, starting today, you can set up Friendly Competitions with a 5 or 15 minutes time limit, instead of just 10 or 30 minutes.
