Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra moon – Global Mission #1

Today, the first Global Mission for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon ended, but it was a failure. Players were tasked with catching 10 million Pokémon, and they ended up catching “only” 5 442 088. As a result, there’s no rewards for anyone, just a consolation prize: 1 000 Festival Coins for everyone, and 2 000 Festival Coins for Pokémon Global Link players. You can get it from the receptionist in the Festival Plaza.

Check out this post for more details about Global Missions, including upcoming missions!

Pokémon GO

Last week, the Global Catch Challenge took place in Pokémon GO, and unlike the first Gloal Mission in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it was successful. Players were tasked with catching 3 billion Pokémon, and that’s pretty much what they did! To celebrate, Niantic decided to throw it one extra reward… Ho-Oh! It will be available in Raid Battles until December 12th.

Speaking of Pokémon GO, here’s the latest videos from the Pokémon GO Travel video series:
