Attention Sun & Moon players, if you’re looking to add two Mega Stones to your collection, the time is now.

Sign-ups for the 2017 International Challenge for February are now underway and ALL participants are to receive a Mawilite and Beedrillite Mega Stone, once the competition is over. A Brief overview of the competition can be seen here:


“The first International Challenge featuring the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games is here! The 2017 International Challenge February will use the same rules and regulations as Pokémon Video Game Championship Series events, and you can even earn Championship Points toward an invitation to the 2017 Pokémon Video Game World Championships in August.

To register, log on to your account from the Pokémon Global Link (PGL) homepage and select Online Competitions in the main menu. You’ll then be able to read and accept the regulations on the PGL. You’ll need a Pokémon Trainer Club account, your own Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon video game, and a Battle Team of eligible Pokémon. Accept the regulations on the Pokémon Global Link before Friday, February 24, at 00:00 UTC, and get ready to battle!

 The competition goes from Friday, February 24, at 00:00 UTC, until Sunday, February 26, 2017, at 23:59 UTC.”


Pokémon that can’t be used consist of: Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Magearna, Necrozma and Zygarde. (Mega Stones aren’t allowed either.)


Should you be new to Pokémon games and signing up for competitions, you will need a Pokémon Global Link account and you can find a step by step guide by clicking on the link below:


But for those of you who choose to skip the competition, or were just unable to sign up, Mawilite and Beedrillite will be distributed at a later date via Serial Code, so there is another chance to get them if you miss out.
