Pokemon Sun/Moon - Win More against the Elite Four in the “Defend Your Champion Title!” Global Mission

Show your mettle by taking on the Elite Four in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon with a new global mission at the PGL! In the “Defend Your Champion Title!” global mission, participants have a goal to collectively earn the title of League Champion 100,000 times between June 27 at 00:00 UTC and July 10 at 23:59 UTC. Everyone who becomes Champion for this global mission at least once will earn Festival Coins, and Pokémon Global Link members can earn even more rewards!

To earn the title of League Champion, not only will you have to take on the Elite Four, you’ll also have to defeat the current League Champion. Prepare your best team and figure out your best strategies. Remember that you can battle the Elite Four in any order, but your Pokémon won’t be healed automatically and you won’t be able to leave until you become Champion (or are defeated), so be prepared before you enter!

To join a global mission, first head to the Festival Plaza in your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. Enter the castle and speak to the receptionist on the right. She’ll let you join the global mission and guarantee that every trip to the top will count toward this global mission. Then start battling for the title of League Champion.

If the goal of 100,000 Championship titles is reached, PGL members will earn 4,000 Festival Coins, while Trainers who haven’t joined the PGL will earn 2,000 Festival Coins. If the goal is not reached, the participation prize will be 400 FC for PGL members, and 200 FC for Trainers not registered at the PGL.

Pokémon Global Link members are also eligible to receive a Moon Ball—a Poké Ball that has better odds of catching a Pokémon that can evolve using a Moon Stone—if a bonus goal of 200,000 League Champion titles is reached. Plus, regardless of the success of the global mission, any PGL member who contributes at least one League Champion title to the tally will earn five Rare Candies!

Remember that a PGL account is free, and you have until the end of the global mission time period to create an account and sync your game to earn the bigger bonus. You can sign up for a PGL account today.

Check out “How to Participate in Global Missions” if you’d like a more detailed walkthrough on how to join the fun.

Good luck in the “Defend Your Champion Title!” global mission! Remember to use Game Sync by July 10 at 23:59 UTC to get your Elite Four victories counted toward the grand total.

Nintendo's Japanese amiibo website source code has a mystery listing

If you check out the source code for Nintendo's amiibo website in Japan, you'll find something interesting. When you look at the lineup of images, the Super Mario Odyssey-style Bowser amiibo comes up as "Release-05.jpg".

The next listed amiibo in the source code is the Goomba above, which is named "release-07.jpg". Wondering where "release-06.jpg" went? Here's the image that pops up when you manually search it.

A little bit strange, isn't it? Is this just a mistake? Is there another Super Mario Odyssey amiibo incoming that's yet to be revealed? Is this another amiibo altogether? Go ahead and place your bets now!

Intelligent Systems/Koei Tecmo on Fire Emblem Warriors hardcore mode, characters, Famicom Wars remake interest

Coming from a Kotaku interview with Masahiro Higuchi from Intelligent Systems and Yosuke Hayashi from Koei Tecmo...

On hardcore mode and losing characters:

Hayashi: We know Fire Emblem fans are both hardcore and casual players, and much like we have options for both in the Fire Emblem series, we also offer [a hardcore mode] in this game. You can choose a more difficult mode where you have to think strategically or else you’ll lose characters, or a more casual mode where you will not lose characters.

On permadeath

Hayashi: Maybe not in the same way as the main Fire Emblem games, but in a way that might make more sense for a Warriors game.

On appealing to fans of the series when choosing characters:

Hayashi: We really wanted to choose characters from around three games that make sense from a fan perspective. That’s why we chose Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and Fates to focus on.

On Shadows of Valentia’s release and remaking older games:

Higuchi: We don’t have concrete plans for any more remakes, but if the opportunity arises, I’d love to do a remake of Famicom Wars.
