The first Pokémon global mission is seriously named “Catch a lot of Pokémon!” and Nintendo was not kidding when they said a lot.
The mission gives users 14 days to catch, not a million, or ten million, but 100 million Pokémon in Pokémon Sun and Moon, which doesn’t seem like a lot. And while it certainly would be impossible for one person, over ten million copies have already been sold, so this challenge isn’t that unreasonable.
Assuming that those aren’t all wrapped up as Christmas presents, each player would only have to catch ten new Pokémon. And, there will certainly be those individuals working towards catching them all, or at least the 302 Pokemon in the Aloha Pokedex. This will help to balance those who don’t touch the game at all over the next two weeks. This will make the Pokemon global challenge a bit easier. To participate players will need to speak with the lady running the desk in the castle at Festival Plaza, which can be accessed using the x-menu after going to a Pokémon Center for the first time. Progress updates with each Game Sync and players need to be connected to the Global Link. Players will receive at least 100 festival coins even if the global mission is failed. But, they could receive up to 2,000 if players succeed.
All of it can be spent in the Goody Shops like the General Store, the Ball Shop, the Battle Store, the Pharmacy, the Effort Shop, and the Soft Drink Parlor. They can also be spent in Food Stalls like the Rare Kitchen, the Friendship Café, the Friendship Parlor, and the Battle Table. Players can also earn festival coins by taking request from Plaza visitors and by joining missions such as “Japanese Lesson” or “Type Matchup Test” or hosting them by using a Festival Ticket and players receive three daily. Pokémon global missions will likely be monthly events.
