In other news, it was reported that players weren't able to complet the first Global Mission for "Pokemon Sun and Moon," Wired learned. IT was mentioned therein that players were only able to catch around 16 million Pokemons out of the 100 million goal in the said event.
One of the factors that were considered as to why the goal wasn't reached for the Global Mission in "Pokemon Sun and Moon" was the necessity for players to set up the Game Sync service on the Pokemon Global Link. Hence, those who failed to do so missed out on the chance to have their Pokemons accounted for.
In any case, it was also stated by the source that the developers will reconsider the numbers for the next Global Mission in "Pokemon Sun and Moon" in the coming future.
