Pokémon Sun and Moon – Swampertite distribution

Yesterday, the latest Battle Competition was announced for Pokémon Sun and Moon: the 2017 International Challenge April. The participation prize for those is, once again, two Mega Stones: the Sceptilite and the Blazikenite. It turns out there will be a third Mega Stone as prize: the Swampertite. Just like the other two, you will need to take part in at least 3 battles during the Battle Competition to get it.

Pokémon Sun and Moon – Battle Spot

Back in January, 5 954 Pokémon Sun and Moon players were banned from Battle Spot, for using altered save data. This prevents them from using various online features, such as Game Sync, Rating Battles, Battle Competitions, Global Missions, and more. Those users end up with Error code 090-0212 when they try to use those features.

And yesterday, it was announced that 7 651 additional players were banned, for the same reason. Naturally, more players will be banned for using edited and illegal saves in the future.
