Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon: How to Use QR Codes to Unlock Pokemon

Scanning a QR Code in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon lets you locate the Pokemon in the game, but there is another QR Code feature called Island Scan that lets you find and capture Pokemon that are not part of the Alolan Pokedex.

Each time you scan in a normal QR code, you’ll receive 10 points for the Island Scan. However, there are special codes like Magearna which give more points, like 20. Once you reach 100 points, the Pokemon assigned to the current day and the island you’re on will appear in the wild. From there you have one hour to go to its location and capture it before it takes off. You can only fight in this battle once, so make sure to make it count!

TIP: It doesn’t have to be a Pokemon QR Code, you can scan any working QR Code and get a scan and points, like scanning a Mii QR Code for BatMii, getting a random Pokemon like Purrloin, and then using Island Scan.

Unfortunately, you can only save up to 10 scan slots. Once they’ve all been used up, you’ll be able to replenish one scan slot every two hours. It’s basically one Pokemon a day!

Island Scan returns in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and contains new Pokemon to find and catch. Pokemon that were added to the Ultra games are marked with the *new* tag.
