Pokémon Sun and Moon players really need to step up their game. While not as bad as the last challenge, fans have once again failed to complete their global mission. Players were challenged to find as many Pokémon as they could using the game’s Island Scan feature. The aim was to reach 1,000,000 encounters, but sadly fans only managed to reach 661,836. In order to contribute to the total you had to log into the Game Sync function, so maybe players weren’t aware the challenge was even taking place. Hopefully we’ll do a bit better next time.
