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!


Check out How to Participate in Global Missions if you’d like a more detailed walkthrough on how to join the fun.

Pokémon Sun & Moon’s 5th Global Mission Ends with a Fantastic Result

If you have been following news of the Egg Hatching Global Mission for Pokémon Sun and Moon, there’s a good chance you’ll know both its goals were met, but now with the event finally over, the end result is colossal.


Players were only required to hatch 200,000 eggs if they wished to get 2,000/4,000 FC and 400,000 if they wanted to get a Love Ball as well. Except when the event did end on the 10th of April at 23:99 p.m. UTC, the final count is 14,503,078 eggs hatch and no it doesn’t mean players are going to receive more than 1 Love Ball to celebrate their success.

[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!

More Details on the Japanese Ash-Pikachu Distribution for Sun & Moon

Now that a few days have passed since the Ash-Pikachu distribution was revealed in CoroCoro, Serebii has had the time to translate the details much better and the results are interesting.


As it turns out, every single cap wearing Pikachu will come with the standard Poké Ball to call and each hold a Pikashunium Z Z-Crystal. They’ll all also all have the ability Static, but that’s were their similarity ends. Besides having different hats, they’ll also have different levels, and differing moves and we have all of that information: Continue reading More Details on the Japanese Ash-Pikachu Distribution for Sun & Moon

New Japanese Ash-Pikachu Distribution for Pokémon Sun & Moon is On its Way!

Following the datamined data, we all knew Ash-Pikachu will be making an appearance sooner or later and now that appearance is sooner than we thought.


In the latest issue of CoroCoro, it has been revealed that the Pikachu wearing Ash’s hat (Ash-Pikachu,) will be distributed in Japan, but the only way to lay claim to your own Ash-Pikachu, is to pre-book a ticket for the upcoming Pokémon: I Choose You movie. Doing so will allow you to get a very special Serial Code that gives you access to not just one Ash-Pikachu, but all of them (6 in all), along with the Z-Crystal Pikashumium Z that allows Ash-Pikachu to use the Z-Movie 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt.

[Random] Victory is Ours! Pokémon Sun & Moon’s 4th Global Mission is a Day 1 Success

I guess the losing streak is well and truly over!

The “Earn BP from the Battle Tree” Global Mission only started today and already players have surpassed 550,946 Battle Points! So not only have players earned enough to get the 2,000/4,000 Festival Coins, but they surpassed the second goal as well, meaning we all get a Heavy Ball as well. Now if you’re thinking, “I didn’t even sign up to participate, so am I eligible for the prizes?” the answer is yes. Provided you register to participate while the event is still running, you can still win the completion rewards provided you get 3 BP of your own, and you will also get 5 pieces of Rare Candy.

But way to go Trainers, you really knocked it out of the ball park on this one!
