Pokémon Sun and Moon

The Pokémon Company is starting to crack down on users using tools to edit their save data files in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Today, they announced that 5 954 players have been banned from online activity (and more specifically Game Sync, entering in Rating Battles and Battle Competitions, and participating in Global Missions).

Players who have been banned will get the following error code when trying to access the aforementionned features: 090-0212.

Naturally, this is only the beginning, and The Pokémon Company will keep on cracking down on users using edited save data files, banning them without prior notice.

By the way, if you want to check whether the Pokémon you received via the GTS or Wonder Trade is legit, Serebii’s has a very handy tool: the Lowest Pokéball Levels. As the name implies, it allows you to check the lowest Pokéball level a specific Pokémon can be caught.

Next, here’s the latest two TV commercials for Pokémon Sun and Moon, along with a making of video for them:

And finally, here’s a video showcasing some of the Pokémon from the Alola region (and more precisely their Pokédex entries):

Pokémon Bank

A quick notice about Pokémon Bank, and more specifically Mew. As you already know, there are two ways to get it in Pokémon Red Version / Blue Version / Green Version / Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition. The first one is the most common way: using a well-known glitch. The second one is via a special distribution event (which isn’t running anywhere as of writing).

Unfortunately, the Mew received via the first method cannot be transferred to Pokémon Sun and Moon using Poké Transporter, only those obtained via the event can (which triggers a special message from Morimoto, in-game).

Speaking of Mew, if you use the Pokémon Bank, you can get the Z- Crystal for Mew, allowing you to use the Genesis Supernova. Here’s a trailer showcasing that move:
