Along with all the other Pokémon news this morning, the official Pokémon Sun & Moon website has posted info about a new QR code scanner in Pokémon Sun & Moon that will be able to be used to meet new Pokémon.
In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, there is a QR Scanner function that allows you to see information about Pokémon when you scan QR Code patterns. With the QR Scanner, you scan in a QR Code and check the information about the Pokémon that corresponds to that QR Code. There are QR Code patterns in various places all around you, so try scanning them.
The official website notes that you can use QR codes to register Pokémon in your Pokédex, in order to find out where they live. If you scan a Pokémon you haven’t met yet, its habitat will be revealed, and you can use your Pokédex to search for it!
Stay tuned for even more Pokémon Sun and Moon coverage!
