The “Harvest Poké Beans” Global Mission Has Cropped Up at the Pokémon Global Link!:


We’re spilling the beans on the new global mission at the PGL! In the “Harvest Poké Beans” global mission, participants have a goal to collectively harvest 3 million Poké Beans between April 25 at 00:00 UTC and May 9 at 23:59 UTC. Everyone who helps out with this global mission will earn Festival Coins, and Pokémon Global Link members can earn even more rewards! 


Poké Pelago is where you’ll find Poké Beans in the greatest abundance. Every day, Poké Beans fall from the beanstalk on Isle Abeens—and the more you develop the island, the more Poké Beans will fall every day. You can also talk to the barista at the café inside any Pokémon Center, who will give you Poké Beans once per day when you purchase a beverage.


To join a global mission, first visit Festival Plaza in your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. Head into the castle and speak to the receptionist on the right. She’ll let you join the global mission and guarantee that the Poké Beans you collect will count toward it. Then, start harvesting Poké Beans wherever you can.

If the goal of 3 million Poké Beans is reached, Pokémon Global Link members will earn 4,000 Festival Coins, while Trainers who do not belong to the PGL will earn 2,000 Festival Coins. If the goal is not reached, the participation prize will be 400 Festival Coins for PGL members and 200 Festival Coins for Trainers not registered at the PGL.


Pokémon Global Link members are also eligible to receive a Level Ball if a bonus goal of at least 6 million Poké Beans is reached. Plus, regardless of the success of the global mission, any PGL member who contributes at least 30 Poké Beans will earn five Rare Candies!

Remember that a PGL account is free, and you have until the end of the global mission time period to create an account and sync your game to earn the bigger bonus. You can Sign up for a PGL account today!

Pokémon Go Eggstravaganza Hatches 87 Million Eggs

The Official Pokémon GO Facebook page has uploaded a photo celebrating the fact that 87 Million Eggs were hatched during the Easter Eggstravaganza Event. That is actually pretty good going, I suppose the possibility of getting rarer Pokémon in 2K eggs and double XP helped somewhat and no doubt a few dollars were spent in buying incubators for hatching those egg. Well it is nice to see Pokémon Go still going strong. We can only hope it continues to get better and better over time.

[Video] Who’s That Pokémon? It’s Marshadow!

We knew its name. We even knew what it looked like, but now Marshadow has been officially and we’ve got the official video that revealed the “new” Pokémon right here:

According to Serebii, Marshadow (a Fighting/Ghost-type Pokémon,) is to tie in with the upcoming Pokémon: I Choose You movie, which makes sense since the official Pokémon website cites Marshadow not being encounterable in normal gameplay. Other than that though that is literally everything that was revealed, but the promise of more details to come has been made and once we have them, you can expect to see Marshadow featuring on once again!


Until said time comes though, keep on gaming!
