Just like last year, the first Global Mission for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon has ended in failure. The first mission took place from November 16 to November 27, trainers needed to catch a total of 10 million Pokémon, but instead, the tally came up way shorter, ending at 5.42 million caught Pokémon.
Checking over on the official website played it down pretty well:
“Unfortunately, the goal for the “Catch a lot of Pokémon!” global mission wasn’t reached. A huge thanks to everyone who contributed their Pokémon tally in an effort to catch 10,000,000 Pokémon worldwide in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. But not all is lost—everyone who added their Pokémon to the count will receive a participation prize of 1,000 Festival Coins (PGL members will get 2,000 Festival Coins)!
Check with the global mission receptionist in Festival Plaza to receive your participation prize.
Good luck next time, Trainers!”
