Come next week, the time to Catch ‘em all will be a thing of the past, for next week it the time to Trade ‘em All!

A new Global Mission for Pokémon Sun & Moon has been announced and while the goal has not been divulged, what is known is that the mission will start on January the 31st at 04:00 a.m. UTC and ends on the 14th of February at 23:59 p.m. UTC.

 Unlike the two previous missions that required us to collectively catch 100 million Pokémon, or catch and defeat 1 million Island Scan Pokémon, this new mission requires us to trade through the Pokémon GTS (Global Trade System.)


Now while that concludes the global mission news, news which is not present on the Pokémon Global Link just yet, there is some news that is. A new Pokémon Rankings is now available, so if you haven’t seen it for yourself yet, you can see the official news here:

“Visit the Rating Battles page and discover dominant Pokémon moves, Abilities, Natures, and held items in both current and past seasons.

You can now view the ranking across all formats, or filter rankings by Single, Double, Special, or Championships Battle. Select a specific Pokémon and learn the top 10 Pokémon it defeated in Rating Battles, the top 10 moves it used to win, and more.

This exciting new PGL feature provides a treasure trove of data for Trainers looking to take their Rating Battles to the next level.”


As soon as more details are shared on the third global mission, you can expect to see them here!

  1. neato, I hope they get the word out better, I felt like for the last global mission that when you were in game, it wasn’t very obvious and apparent that there was a mission going on
