Pokémon Sun and Moon
Today, The Pokémon Company announced that the third Global Mission for Pokémon Sun and Moon would be live from January 31st to February 14th. This time around, players will have to trade as many Pokémon as possible via the internet (and more precisely the PGS). Unfortunately, we don’t know how many Pokémon players will have to trade, or what the rewards will be, but no doubt those will be announced in the upcoming days!

It’s been a while since Pokémon GO was last launched in new countries, most likely due to the game already being available in pretty much all countries where there isn’t legislation preventing its release (such as China, for example). Today, Pokémon GO was finally released in one such country: South Korea. A new update was even released, adding support for Korean language.
Shiny Magikarp distribution
Yesterday, a new distribution for Pokémon Sun and Moon was announced for some Asian countries (Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, specifically). Players can get a Serial Code for a Shiny Magikarp from participating stores.
Here’s details about this Shiny Magikarp:
- Level: 19
- Hold Item: Rare Candy
- Moves: Splash, Bounce
- Availability period: January 28th to February 3rd (code itself can be used until February 6th).
