Second failure for Pokémon Sun & Moon Global Mission | Nintendo Wire

You may remember the first Global Mission for Pokémon Sun & Moon held in December. We’d been sad to report that the mission did, indeed, end in failure. Of the 100,000,000 Pokémon players were tasked to catch, the end tallies noted a significant shortage of caught Pokémon, with the numbers falling into the 16.42% range. Yikes.

Unfortunately, the results of the second Global Mission isn’t all that different from the first. Players were asked to find a total of 1,000,000 Pokémon through the Island Scan feature, but in the end, only 661,839 Pokémon were found before time was up. The failure reward sits at 217FC (434FC if the game is registered) with the Global Link is now available.

    I feel like the part of the reason for there being not one, but two, unsuccessful global missions, is because a lot of people may not understand how it works and how to register for it. Another issue may be that the goals are currently too high for people to get too, especially with something like Island scan, because you can only get up to two island scans each day. And you lose one if you fail to capture the Pokémon. I would recommend setting lower goals depending on the mission in question. Due to the lack of ability to get a bunch of island scans each day, a lower goal would have been potentially easier for everyone to achieve during this latest global mission.
