Pokémon Sun & Moon - QR Teams & Friendly Competitions

Following its reveal in the pre-release, the functionality that allows for you to create a QR Code to share your team with other players which can then be scanned and used in the game in the Battle Tree and in communication with friends. You can even search the Global Link for QR Teams, including the ability to search for ones with specific Pokémon, moves, items and abilities. The Global Link will also provide the "top" teams. Each player has got a Builder Rank which alters how many teams you can put live, with the rank increasing the more someone uses your team, starting at 20 uses to get to Level 2. The Global Link will also display the top used QR teams, creators of QR teams that have their teams frequently used as well as QR teams of the high ranking players if they have chosen to share it. Do note, a Pokémon's Happiness value is not carried over, so moves such as Return and Frustration reset to their default rather than their intended power.
In addition to this, the functionality to create a special Friendly Competition is now available on the Pokémon Global Link, which can be done both online or as a local Live Competition allowing for full competition checking and battle box locking. You also have the ability on the Global Link to view other people's competitions and potentially join them. Competitions won't be held until 20 or more people participate and you can set whether to use the Your Time or Match Time timers, allow for Z-Crystals and Mega Stones. Competitions can only last one day and need to be shared by sharing the Global Link URL for the Friendly Competition for players to obtain the QR Code for Friendly Online Competitions. These features utilise the QR Codes in the game but need to be scanned in their respective areas rather than the standard QR Scanner
QR Codes will only work for your Game Sync ID, so sharing of QR Teams and Friendly Competitions requires giving a link to the Global Link page for the team/competition.
