Pokemon Global Link Shutting Down for Pokemon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon

Pokemon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon’s online competitions and team rentals will be going away. The official Pokemon website has revealed the Pokemon Global Link shutdown date for the seventh generation of games. On February 24, 2020, certain online interactions will all go away.

The Pokemon Global Link interactions in seventh generation of games primarily focused on online competitions and access to the Global Trade Station history. You could participate in either Friendly or Online Competitions, grab some QR Rental Teams for battling, and participate in Rating Battles to see how high your rank is.

As a means of saying goodbye, people can get a gift from Fennel, who helped you set up access to the Pokemon Global Link in Pokemon Black and White. To access to feature in that entry, you needed Munna’s Dream Mist. If people sign into their Pokemon Global Link account at the official website, you’ll be able to get her Munna as a thank you gift. As long as you log in before February 24, 2020 and get the 16-digit code, then enter it into your seventh generation Pokemon Nintendo 3DS game, you will get her Munna.

The Pokemon Global Link shutdowns aren’t uncommon. After each generation, they tend to be closed between generations. For example, the sixth generation of Pokemon’s system closed on November 1, 2016, ahead of Pokemon Sun and Moon’s debut on November 18, 2016.
