First Pokemon Sun & Moon Global Mission ended in failure; next mission announced

Posted on December 13, 2016 by (@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS, News

The first Global Mission in Pokemon Sun & Moon is now over – unfortunately, players were not able to reach the goal of 100 million caught Pokemon, catching only 16,423,231. As a consolation prize, players will receive 100 FC, or 200 FC if their game is registered on the Global Link. Game Freak also put up a notice which states that the targets of future Global Missions will be altered based on the results of this one.

Speaking of future Global Missions, the next one was also announced today. Players will have to look for Pokemon using the Island Scan feature. The mission will start on December 27th.

    Hoping they make more realistic goals from now on…

    Wah, wah, waaawawawawawawah.

    Lol. 20mil sounds more realistic at this point. Or, they can go back to 100 if the games sells 10 more times what it has sold so far.

    • I don’t think the problem is sales. The problem is the obtuse online framework required to even sign up for the global mission. It was a pain in the butt to register for the event, I had to access the pokemon website off my 3DS and everything. Amazed any number of people bothered with it.

        The global link has been the same since B/W. It’s how people keep track of their championship points, used to be how to get hidden ability pokemon, and was used to get rare items.

        I can see it being a small issue, but you just log in and put in your game sync ID and that’s it.

        • The fact that it’s unchanged for that long should say something in and of itself. It’s an overly complicated process that will turn off the vast majourity of casual users, most of whom won’t even know the global missions are going on, since it seems so hidden.

            I mean, when you click the game sync option it tells you exactly how to do it. I guess I just don’t see the problem because it’s always worked just fine, and I think this is the first time I’ve ever heard of it causing problems.

            Although, I am not surprised.

    Wasn’t even aware of it

    Oh boohoohoo! I’ll never get my 200FC for a feature that is a watered down variation of Join Avenue. Boohoohoo!
