Just in case there were fears of Global Missions not making a return, we can all rest easy as Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will have them and details on the first one have started to roll in!
So here’s what we know, the first mission will require players to collectively catch 10,000,000 Pokémon, which is active now and will end on the 28th of November and the prize for doing so will be 2,000 Festival Coins with a consolation prize of 1,000 being available should all participants fail. The official description of the event can be seen here:
Global missions return with the launch of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon! The first global mission is now active: “Catch a lot of Pokémon!” The goal is for all Trainers to collectively catch 10,000,000 Pokémon by November 28, 2017. If the goal is reached, every participant will receive 2,000 Festival Coins as a reward. Even if the goal isn’t reached, everyone will get a participation prize of 1,000 Festival Coins. Trainers who have registered their game at the Pokémon Global Link by the end of the global mission will receive double the number of Festival Coins, so be sure to sign up today.
Start catching as many Pokémon as you can for the “Catch a lot of Pokémon!” global mission now!

Additionally, it has also been revealed that anyone who gets either of the new Gen 7 games or even both, and syncs their game/games to the Pokémon Global Link, will also be able to earn themselves a free Master Ball, which will be given out in January and you can find the details for it, right here:
Can’t believe we’re just giving away Master Balls?! It’s true! Trainers who register and use Game Sync to connect their copies of Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon with the Pokémon Global Link between November 17, 2017, and January 30, 2018, will receive a free Master Ball as an introductory bonus. And yes—if you own both Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, you’ll be able to score a Master Ball for each game!
