UPDATE 2 (14/02/17): 4,107,702 is the final number for the third Global Mission. This surpasses not only the initial target of 1,000,000 and also the secondary target of 2,000,000. The result of this is that 2000 Festival Coins (4000 if you connected to Global Link). The extra Friend Ball and Rare Candy distribution will come later this February through Serial Code on Global Link.
Furthermore, the next event has been revealed. Running from 4am UTC on 28th February to 23:59pm UTC on 14th March, this tasks the Sun & Moon playing community with acquiring as many BP (Battle Points) at the Battle Tree as they can. There is no specific number stated yet, but we will likely hear more closer to the date. The reward will be between 200 and 4000 FC.
UPDATE 1 (04/02/17): The target of 1,000,000 trades has been met! As such, the Global Mission has been completed. As written below, if we get to the number of 2,000,000, a Friend Ball will be added to the Festival Coins as a reward. If you haven’t yet signed up, there is still time – don’t miss out on those Festival Coins!

One of Pokémon Sun & Moon‘s numerous online features is the Global Missions of Pokémon Global Link, where the entire online community is challenged to hit a collective goal. The third one launched today, and, well, we kind of need a better outcome for this one.
You see, the last couple of Global Missions haven’t gone so well. The first, tasking us with catching 100,000,000 Pokémon globally, was furthest from the mark – we caught 16, 423,231, making us (hold on) 83,576,769 off the goal. Yikes. After that, we got the more-achievable-looking target of scanning 1,000,000 Pokémon with Island Scan. We managed 661,839; there was a more respectable outcome, but we still fell short.
So this one is our moment, fellow Poké-players. Our task? To trade 1,000,000 Pokémon using the Global Trade System (GTS) from the period of 4am UTC on 31st January (that’s today) to 23:59pm UTC on 14th February. There’s motivation behind it, too – like with the prior two Missions, we can get a reward of Festival Coins for use in the Festival Plaza. In addition, and almost as a plea to us to actually complete this one, we have some extra rewards on top:
- 200-4000 Festival Coins for Completion
- 5 Trades Grants a Rare Candy
- 2 Million Trades: Friend Ball
2 Million? Let’s worry about just getting the million for this one. With the new Pokémon Bank update, we have access to a lot more Pokémon in our Sun & Moon games now, so hopefully that can help boost our efforts in this Global Mission.
Third time’s the charm, right? -cries-
