Pokémon Sun & Moon - QR Code Note

As the QR Codes are now being distributed for the distribution of Magearna in Sun & Moon in Japan (through the new movie, Volcanion & The Ingenious Magearna), we now have a bit more insight into how the QR Codes work following from the confirmation that it is region locked. All players in Japan are receiving the same QR Code for their Magearna which means that everyone with a Japanese Sun & Moon game will be able to scan the code and redeem Magearna, acting akin to the shared Serial Codes that are released rather than the unique ones. It's currently unclear if all QR Code events will be like this across the globe but we'll provide clarification for each code for each event when they are released.

Who's That Pokémon

Today marks the one-hundred & forty-second entry into the Generation VI competitive field with a Kalos Pokémon.

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the sixth generation.  It lets out billows of steam and disappears into the dense fog. It's said to live in mountains where humans do not tread. It expels its internal steam from the arms on its back. It has enough power to blow away a mountain. So, here it is, the one-hundred & forty-second entry, Volcanion.

Until Next Time, See Ya
