Now that Pokémon Sun and Moon has been out for a couple weeks, it's gotten to the time where Global Missions have begun. These will be facilitated via the Pokémon Global Link, and will require the collective participation of Pokémon players across the world in order to achieve the lofty goals being set. The first mission just went live today and is centered around catching a lot of Pokémon, 100 million to be exact.
The mission is running until midnight on 12th December and participants will receive up to 2,000 Festival Coins if the goal is reached and no less than 100 festival coins if it isn't. It's a pretty safe bet that this goal will be easily passed – if every owner of a copy caught about fifty Pokémon, that would surpass the goal and then some – so make sure you join in to get your paws on those sweet Festival Coins.
What do you think? How many Pokémon will you catch for this? What are some ideas you have for future missions? Drop us a comment in the section below.
"if every owner of a copy caught one Pokémon, that would surpass the goal and then some"
Might want to recheck that
I'll catch a few.
I wouldn't bet on that goal being reached, but I will catch even more Pokemon. The things I do for you guys...
@BoTalksGames Lol good catch!
"Now that Pokémon Sun and Moon has been out for a couple weeks"
But it's not even been out for a week here in Europe...
I would catch more pokemon if they didn't keep calling for help! Don't even start me on the self destructing minior! >.<
I have 7 so far in my Pokedex. But my main target is Sawk.
@Kimyonaakuma I have to agree, the one thing I absolutely dislike about this game is the calling 'feature'. I know it's easy enough to get around, but it's a barrier that didn't exist in the previous games.
I started and thought, this'll be easy, flew back to the starting area. 6 Pichu's calling each other into battle later I gave up (for today).
I've pretty much been breeding my starters plus a few others and trading em over the GTS instead of just catching 'mon out in the wild.
Yeah I've used more quick balls than ever before.
I'm feeling super lazy this gen, not sure why. 🤔 Maybe because I've got all the old 'mons in the Bank and I'll just transfer them over in January.
Once I beat the game will start to fill my pokedex up, that'll help add to the total!
I wonder if they count hatched eggs, etc. towards that total.
I'm filling in my Pokedex as I go, so will probably be catching more Pokemon than the average player.
I feel lucky, almost every time a Pokemon calls for help nothing comes, so I haven't had any problem catching.
Hmm... Does this include all of the Pokemon we hatch or already have?
Indeed, you are lucky. My highest was 7 successful calls for help, before I could catch what I wanted.
Does anyone know if the number is based on the number of pokemon listed as "caught" in your pokedex or the total number of pokemon you have acquired?
@MoonKnight7 @Luna_110 They don't seem to call for help if they have a status condition, so I always keep a Pokemon on hand that can paralyse them if I want to catch them.
But I'm actually trying to cause them to call for help myself as they can call other species of Pokemon to help, which is helping me to complete my Pokedex.
Too bad the race is not about KOes, I defeated so many Pkmn cause of the calling for help feature that I would have reach the 100 million alone XD
And just for be clear, I'm not complaining about the calling for help, quite the opposite I love it! Catching finally got more interesting than a boring "keep tossing pokeballs" and I got some pretty rare stuffs by abusing it.
I was planning on boosting my catching volume, anyway. I got nothing to Wonder Trade =p
@MoonKnight7 @Luna_110 Got 9 Zubats here in a row. But I noticed they don't call for help that often if they are at full health.
@DragonEleven In one battle a Wishiwashi called for help twice while being asleep before I managed to caught it.
@KTT Guess it doesn't work for sleep then... I was only assuming that it applied to other status conditions, but paralysis is the only one I've actually used myself, and I've never had a Pokemon call for help while it's been paralysed.
https://3ds-sp.pokemon-gl.com/information/daa0cde7-1e54-41d1-95de-19571cad0465 website says 1000 coins
On the third island. Have about 100 or so Pokemon so far.
i signed up for this. could always use festival coins
How does it works?
How does the game registers how many pokemon you catched?
Not gonna worry about it when I finally get a hold of Moon in a few days. Just gonna get to the point where I get the Nursery and figure out how EV training happens here. I'm gonna miss Super Training. TwT
@Joeynator3000 To not to being too spoilery... EV training works just like always but there are no 6-gen hordes, unfortunately.
But... early in the game, wild pokemon start making horde-like replacement, which boosts EV gain and quality of IVs. You can also get EV-gaining items (bands) early in game (but they need some grinding)!
@DragonEleven Out of curiousity, I searched some topics and it seems the status aliments greatly lowers the chance. Serebii says it should never happen while Asleep, however it happened to me and to few folks on the Internet with different conditions as well. I guess I'm just very unlucky...
I'll start in this after work.
I'm not very far in the game, but I'll join in on this.
If only this started before I finished the Pokédex...
I'm currently catching every pokémon I see. Every single random spawn. I'm so glad Gift Snorlax has Hold Back.
