Pokemon Sun

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have received a new update. Version 1.2 is out now, and is required to play online.

The new patch addresses these issues:

• Pokémon being unable to attack and switch when Sky Drop is used and when knocked out by damage done by Spiky Shield.
• A glitch in Poké Pelago when entering a new month.
• A rare case where the game ends after using an Evolution item as the last item in your Bag.
• Scatterbug sometimes not learning Egg Moves.
• Eggs sometimes being able to be given items.
• A glitch ending the tournament when pre-registered for an online Friendly Competition (e.g. entry gets canceled or the Battle Teams get unlocked).

Note: after version 1.2 has been installed, any Battle Videos saved prior to the update cannot be played or shared.


Nintendo scheduled a rather sudden maintenance period for Pokemon Sun & Moon. For three hours, all online services of both games will be unavailable. Below are the exact times:

– 5 PM PT (May 16) / 8 PM PT (May 16)
– 8 PM ET (May 16) – 11 PM ET (May 16)
– 1 AM in the UK (May 17) – 4 AM in the UK (May 17)
– 2: AM in Europe (May 17) – 5 AM in Europe (May 17)

Pokemon Global Mission #6 is a success

Posted on 1 month ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 1 Comment | 0 Likes

Pokemon Sun/Moon’s sixth Global Mission just began this week. Despite that, it is already a huge success. Both milestones have been reached with players harvesting over six million Poke Beans.

You have until May 8 to participate in the new Global Mission. Doing so will net you Festival Coins, a Level Ball, and Rare Candies.


The sixth Global Mission in Pokemon Sun & Moon has begun. This time, players need to collect Poke Beans in Poke Pelago. The goal is to collect 3,000,000 or more Poke Beans by May 9th, 23:59 UTC. If the mission is a success, all players get 2000 FC; if the mission fails, all players get 200 FC. As always, these rewards are doubled if the game is tied to a Global Link account. If a player collects 30 or more Poke Beans, they get one Rare Candy. If all players collect more than 6,000,000 Poke Beans, everyone with a Global Link account gets a Level Ball.


A new report from the ESA reveals the top 20 best-selling games in the United States during 2016. Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon both made the list, coming in at the 11th and 12 spots respectively.

The full results are as follows:
