QR Codes seem super weird, since like almost no one uses them anymore. That said, I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but it seems almost any QR Code works. Like, I literally googled "QR Codes", scanned what came up and got a bunch of hits. I didn't beat the game yet (I'm a slow player, I don't like speeding through them for some reason) so I got a Luxray and something else, but don't have the National Dex.
The National Dex isn't available yet, it will come in early 2017 (probably/most likely January) along with Sun and Moon's compatibility with the Pokémon Bank.
And speaking of the Pokédex, the majority of these entries are really dark and messed up. This isn't anything new, but there is huge amount of them in S/M.
I'm guessing this is because they're being said by Rotom, who is a Ghost, it especially seems to be obsessed with the habit of how Pokémon feed on others.
Mega Evolved Pokémon also have Dex entries and while some are fine, others might make you rethink the entire thing of Mega Evolution and what it means: Mega Alakazam Sun- As a result of Mega Evolution, its power has been entirely converted into psychic energy, and it has lost all strength in its muscles. Moon- Its hidden psychic power has been unleashed. A glance at someone gives it knowledge of the course of that person’s life, from birth to death.
Mega Slowbro Sun- All the energy from Mega Evolution poured into the Shellder on its tail, leaving Slowpoke to be swallowed whole. Moon- When bathed in the energy of Mega Evolution, Shellder converts into impregnable armor. There is virtually no change in Slowpoke.
Mega Gengar Sun- Gengar’s relationships are warped. It has no interest in opponents unless it perceives them as prey. Moon- The energy of Mega Evolution awakened it. It sinks into another dimension, where it keeps a patient watch for its chance to attack.
Mega Kangaskhan Sun- Mega Kangaskhan’s strength derives from the mother’s happiness about her child’s growth. Watching it grow up keeps her spirits high. Moon- Thanks to Mega Evolution, its child grows. But as the child is good only at fighting and nothing else, its mother feels uneasy about its future.
Mega Pinsir Sun- The influence of Mega Evolution leaves it in a state of constant excitement. It pierces enemies with its two large horns before shredding them. Moon- Bathed in the energy of Mega Evolution, its wings become unusually developed. It flies at speeds of approximately 30 mph.
Mega Gyarados Sun- Mega Evolution also affects its brain, leaving no other function except its destructive instinct to burn everything to cinders. Moon- It jets water from the orifices on its sides, streaking above the water surface at supersonic speed. Mega Aerodactyl Sun- Part of its body has become stone. Some scholars claim that this is Aerodactyl’s true appearance. Moon- When it Mega Evolves, it becomes more vicious than ever before. Some say that’s because its excess of power is causing it pain.
Mega Scizor Sun- The excess energy that bathes this Pokémon keeps it in constant danger of overflow. It can’t sustain a battle over long periods of time. Moon- Due to the effects of Mega Evolution, its pincers have taken on a more diabolical form, ripping anything they pinch to shreds.
Mega Sableye Sun- The jewel from its chest, which has grown gigantic due to the effects of Mega Evolution, can turn back any attack. Moon- Supporting a giant heavy jewel, it can’t change direction very nimbly and is vulnerable to attack from behind.
Mega Sharpedo Sun- The spines sprouting from its head are transformed fangs. If they’re injured or broken off, the spines will regenerate countless times. Moon- As a consequence of Mega Evolution, its combative instincts exploded. The yellow marks it bears are scars from a long history of battles.
Mega Absol Sun- When this Pokémon whips the winglike fur on its back as though beating its wings, it sends an intimidating aura flying at its opponents. Moon- As the energy of Mega Evolution fills it, its fur bristles. What you see on its back are not true wings, and this Pokémon isn’t able to fly.
Mega Glalie Sun- The excess energy from Mega Evolution spilled over from its mouth, breaking its jaw. It spews endless blizzards. Moon- It envelops prey in its mouth, freezing them instantly. But its jaw is dislocated, so it’s unable to eat them.
Mega Salamence Sun- Anyone standing in its path gets sliced right in two, while this Pokémon continues its flight without interruption. Moon- Mega Evolution fuels its brutality, and it may even turn on the Trainer who raised it. It’s been dubbed “the blood-soaked crescent.”
Mega Metagross Sun- This form results from one Metagross, one Metang, and two Beldum linking up. Moon- Mega Evolution stimulated its brain. It emerged as a ruthless Pokémon that will clutch at any means of ensuring its victories.
Mega Garchomp Sun- Excess energy melted its arms and wings, transforming them into giant scythes. Moon- Its vaunted wings become scythes, sending it mad with rage. It swings its scythes wildly and slices the ground to pieces.
Mega Lucario Sun- Black streaks all over its body show where its auras and the energy of Mega Evolution intermingled and raced through it. Moon- It readies itself to face its enemies by focusing its mental energies. Its fighting style can be summed up in a single word: heartless.
That concludes all the currently available Dex entries of Mega Evolved Pokémon, until the National Dex arrives in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
What we thought was just the strength of the bond between the trainer and their Pokémon being converted into energy has a cruel side for some Pokémon.

Nintendo Hong Kong has put out some details about the upcoming Pokémon Bank update, specifically in regards to the Generation 1 transfer. First, transferred Pokémon will likely have at least 3 max IVs. Their nature will be random and there is a chance that the Pokémon will have their Hidden Ability. It will also have a unique GameBoy mark The National Pokédex will sync up with the games you use with Pokémon Bank, listing the Pokémon you have seen/caught in each game and combining them. It will list the games that you have each Pokémon in. You don't need the Pokémon to be deposited into your Bank in order to register them in the National Pokédex. Finally, it confirms that you can send Battle Points again. Finally, it shows that you can track a variety of stats from your games such as Eggs Hatched, Pokémon Captured etc. through Pokémon Bank, crossreferencing between all 6 games.
The Pokémon Bank update is now available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. This update adds compatibility for Pokémon Sun & Moon in Pokémon Bank and also updates Poké Transporter for the ability to send Pokémon from Green, Red, Blue and Yellow up to Pokémon Bank. It requires 496 blocks to download and a requires a full redownload of the software rather than a patch. In addition to this, Poké Transporter Version 1.2's patch requires 420 blocks. We're currently cataloguing all the updates to Pokémon Bank so be sure to keep checking back as we update our pages
It has been confirmed by The Pokémon Company that the special Z Crystal, the Mewnium Z is to be distributed to Pokémon Sun & Moon players who use Pokémon Bank until October 2nd 2017
Confirmation that Mew obtained in Generation 1 games through glitches will not transfer over. All Pokémon have their Hidden Ability when transferred over as well.
ShiningStarlia: I remember her voicing a blind kid who was healed by Fat Buu back in Z. And that must've been like, almost 20 years ago I think!

Donkarasu: It's funny, despite Ribrianne getting so much hate (not me, I think she's an entertaining character and love the Magical Girl parody Toei added with her and her team mates) people were excited to hear that Veronica Taylor was voicing Ribrianne.
Dec 6, 2018 6:04:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: In a way though. I personally have no problem with her and think her magical girl parody is hilarious and her transformation is meant to look hideous that even in-universe Vegeta couldn't bring himself to punch her when she tried to use Rollout on him.
Dec 8, 2018 0:28:31 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though considering how much screentime she soaks up, I can see where most of the complaints come from. Then again, one can say the same thing about the Saiyans (U6 and U7) so who am I to complain? Haha.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: I think the forum's banner pic should be changed to Tsareena's butt closeup from today's episode. Pokemopolis thrives on easy-to-take-out-of-context stuff like that.
Dec 8, 2018 18:08:39 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So have been hearing Movie 21 has a heart warming story, it's not another movie that shoehorns in a Mythical and/or Legendary Pokémon for the sake of views, but rather their use in the plot is respectable, all characters get to do something notable, etc.
Dec 9, 2018 9:41:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: While that's true, it did still default to the whole "mythical/legendary hates humans until it meets Ash and friends" formula. Some parts of the old formula just had to stick around.
Dec 10, 2018 21:52:31 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Everything else was fresh and well-done, though. And though I trash the music (the only weak point of the movie, and boy is it an Achilles' Heel; that is except for the dub's ending song), the movie itself is spectacular.
Dec 10, 2018 21:54:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Actual so-called-music that deserves to be called "noise" is whatever 4kids used in their dub for One Piece. Music you don't like, but can still clearly hear the instruments, should be called "bad music", calling it "noise" is just a petty insult.
Dec 14, 2018 12:09:50 GMT -4
Donkarasu: There were no instruments used for the 4kids' One Piece dub music, it was all synthesizers.
Dec 14, 2018 12:13:09 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also that dub of that thing which when I showed Ryu the Japanese verison of long ago he said it was fine, but when I brought it up again, Ryu got all aggressive and started saying the original version was bad, despite the dub having all the flaws.
Dec 14, 2018 12:17:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: You never showed me that thing any more than once. And also, you showed me it in a failed attempt to make me like something about the JP version.
Dec 14, 2018 12:29:39 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes I did actually, I showed it to you to show you that when the narrator started singing it wasn't like in Brother Bear, like you thought (when the song was put over one character explaining something to another) but rather she was singing with them.
Dec 14, 2018 18:16:26 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Only you believe it was to get you to like the original, while I was just correcting your misinformation.
Dec 14, 2018 18:18:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That first time was just a correction (and back then, the JP version hadn't fully earned my utter abhorrence). The second time was an attempt to sway me.
Dec 14, 2018 19:35:55 GMT -4
Donkarasu: No it wasn't, it was me having to get this thing out of my mind and so the best way was to let it out and share my thoughts with others. I mean by that logic, I guess you telling me that Popplio says "Arwoo" and Ashimari doesn't is you forcing me to like
Dec 15, 2018 6:14:45 GMT -4
Donkarasu: the dub voice and sway me away from the Japanese one, despite the fact that Popplio only goes "Pop! Pop!" and I have listen to Ashimari's voice more than enough to fully confirm it says what I said it does. But don't worry, I won't make that assumption.
Dec 15, 2018 6:26:40 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Oh and by the way, I do like the dub voice, but for a different reason from why I like the Japanese one.
Dec 15, 2018 6:30:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: All in all that was a good two parter: wish it lasted longer! And as for Dragonball Super, goodness it was great hearing Veronica Taylor again. She used bits of her May voice in the most recent dub episode.
Dec 16, 2018 12:35:04 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: HUGE dub-related news: Matori's dub name (or rather, only name since the dub kept her name as Matori) has finally been said in a dub episode.
