Game Freak has announced the first global event for Pokemon Sun and Moon, Kotaku reports. The company is challenging players collectively catch 100,000,000 Pokemon before December 13th. Any player participating in the effort will recieve a reward if the goal is met.

The official instructions for the event are below:

If everyone combines their efforts to catch 100 million Pokémon between November 29 and December 13, 2016, each participant will receive 1,000 Festival Coins as a reward. If the goal isn't met, Trainers who contributed will still receive a participation prize of 100 Festival Coins. To be sure that your Pokémon bounty gets included in the final count, be sure to use Game Sync by December 13.

That sounds like a win-win situation for any participating player! A player can enter the contest by tapping X and clicking on the Festival plaza icon. From there, they can go into the castle, use the PC there and select "game sync". After that, they talk to the lady at the castle and say yes to her offer to participate in Global Missions.

Once that's done, the game will keep track of how many Pokemon they're catching and contribute it to the global tally. Players will be able to check the number by talking with that same NPC lady at the castle. You've just gotta catch 'em all!

Festival coins can be used at the Festival Plaza for things like buying items, leveling up Pokemon and recoloring clothes. They're certainly handy to have around. So players don't really have anything to lose by participating in this mission.

I think I'll be participating! Are you planning to do the mission? How are you enjoying Sun and Moon?
