Much like the rest of the world, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have set a new record in Australia. The two games are now the fastest-selling Nintendo games in the continent. Sales of Pokemon Sun/Moon are at 240,000 copies in under two weeks.

Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire were the previous record holders for Nintendo. With Sun/Moon though, there’s been a 67 percent bump.


Yesterday, a QR code was distributed for North America so that Pokemon Sun/Moon players could unlock Magearna. Now we have the equivalent for Europe and Australia.

After completing the main story, choose the QR Scanner feature. Then simply scan the image below to obtain Magearna. You’ll just need to visit the deliveryman in the Antiquities of the Ages shop in Hau’oli City to finish the process.



Magearna is the very first Mythical Pokemon distribution in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. Find a trailer for the event below.

Data miners are up to their usual tricks, and have made an interesting discovery about Pokemon Sun/Moon. The two games actually have low-polygon models and animations of each Pokemon walking and running. On top of that, some of the code may hint at Pokemon being behind you.

You can see some of the animations here. Because the models have no textures, they were applied to models used in battle.

What might this mean? Well, it could be an innocuous discovery. Others are hoping it’s a sign of things to come in the rumored Pokemon Stars on Switch.


The first Mythical Pokemon is now up for grabs in Pokemon Sun/Moon. By using a new QR code, players can obtain Magearna.

Before anything else, you’ll need to complete the main story. You can then select the QR Scanner function and use the image below. After visiting the deliveryman at the Antiquities of the Ages shop in Hau’oli City, Magearna will be yours.

Note: this QR code is only valid in North America. We should have some news for European players tomorrow.


Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have been setting all sorts of records, including in France. The two games saw the best launch week ever for a Nintendo-published game in the country. Over 425,000 copies were sold.

Pokemon Sun/Moon outperformed both X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. Pokemon X/Y sold 125,000 copies in its first week while the 3DS remakes moved 180,000 units during the same period.


The latest episode of Game Center DX, the Game Center CX spin-off show, has been released, and it focuses on Pokemon Sun & Moon. Check it out:

Media Create reported that Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon sold 375,665 copies in Japan between November 21 and November 28. We now have additional information from the sales tracker, revealing that the split was 197,000 for Sun and 179,000 for Moon.

That means each version is reduced to about a fourth of their first week sales. Pokemon X (second week of 240,000 copies) and Pokemon Y (233,000 copies) also saw about the same reduction rate. By counting the two games from the Double Pack, Sun and Moon’s total sales as of the second week are 2,281,000 copies, which goes down slightly if compared to X/Y’s two-week total of 2,340,000 units.
