Nintendo launched the first of their new global features for Pokemon Sun and Moon only a couple weeks after the game’s release, with the first goal being to catch 100 million pokemon by December 12th. Sounds like a tough goal right? But if you look at how well Sun and Moon have been doing over the past several weeks in terms of sales, this could’ve been achieved reasonably. Unfortunately though, it failed at a measly 16.4 million yesterday. Ouch, I imagine these were not the results Nintendo had in mind for their first attempt at a global mission for Pokemon Sun and Moon.
Nintendo has set up a rather arduous process for signing up for these global events, no doubt deterring gamers who don’t want to jump through hoops for festival coins. You can take a look at the how the sign-up process works for the global link here. However, Nintendo intends to launch the next global mission on December 27th, hopefully to much more enthusiasm from their wide player base. Honestly, I think it could have huge success if they maybe added a better incentive for success, or simply made the process of participating much easier.
Those that did participate didn’t leave empty handed, as they received 100 FC, or 200 FC if they registered with the Global Link.
Did you participate in the first Sun and Moon mission? Looking forward to more events like this? Sound off in the comments below!
