If you live outside of Japan and are keen to catch Farfetch'd in Pokémon GO, then you might want to watch the game's new Global Catch Challenge with interest.

The objective is for players to catch 3 billion monsters (combined, not on their own!) from now until the 26th November - that's Sunday.

If this total is met, the Japanese exclusive Farfetch'd will be made available worldwide, while Japanese players will get Kangaskhan, a monster previously exclusive to Australia.

But that's not all - there are various awards on offer, too:

These rewards last until 1st December, while the availability of Farfetch'd and Kangaskhan - should they be unlocked - will be just 48 hours. So what are you waiting for? Get catching!
