Pokemon Global Link registration and login issues could be contributing to failure of Global Missions

Posted on February 2, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

Many Pokemon players are experiencing issues registering and logging in to the Pokemon Global Link. This is needed in order to log progress in Global Missions.

As Kotaku points out, a Pokemon Trainer Account is required to sync game progress online. That’s where you ultimately gain access to the Pokemon Global Link. While it seems as though Trainer Accounts are fine, attempting to log in with that information on Pokemon Global Link refreshes the page rather than logging you in. Newly registered accounts appear to be primarily affected.

Unfortunately, these issues have been taking place for a month without any resolution in sight. One suggestion has been to add your name to your Pokemon Trainer Account and set your PGL settings to “Nobody”, but it’s definitely not a solution for all players. The situation may also explain why the first Global Missions in Pokemon Sun/Moon have ended in failure.
