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.

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.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Sorry, it's just that after SM021 and M21, I know Mima's gonna be three for three when it comes to terribly mishandling emotional moments.
Feb 9, 2019 18:50:46 GMT -4
Donkarasu: But at least you're fine with episode 79, because you've never said anything about it.
Feb 9, 2019 19:02:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That was a lucky case of not bad but the dub did better.
Feb 9, 2019 19:09:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Masafumi Mima said he got goosebumps when selecting the music for a certain episode and even the voice actors were brought to tears, I'm certain it was indeed episode 108 that he was talking about: twitter.com/Sunma47/status/1073896011758587909
Feb 9, 2019 19:12:11 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That's fine and good for them. Mima's just unfortunately given me lots of reasons not to trust his music placement skills (actually, lack thereof).
Feb 9, 2019 22:39:49 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Looks like I'm right not to have believed him when he promised I'd cry at the onscreen events. But I can give him a bit of credit: it turned out better than SM021 and M21 did, so that's a relief.
Feb 10, 2019 10:26:25 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: It ended up with the same results SM079JP did: a "well, okay, that happened. Can't wait for the dub to improve it" kind of feeling.
Feb 10, 2019 10:27:06 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: BTW, I watched it in the first place just because of how cocky Mima was about it.
Feb 10, 2019 18:07:31 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I'm just going to say it now: I will not be happy when TPCI fills the silent moments with music. Silence is needed especially in tear-jerking episodes as it helps set the mood for a depressing atmosphere (it's hard to describe, so I tried my best).
Feb 11, 2019 5:46:51 GMT -4
Donkarasu: It's more Reina Ueda's voice acting as Mao (I can't believe anyone who thinks she wasn't amazing) and the dialogue and less so the background music used which makes those scenes so heart breaking and caused me and others to cry or tear up.
Feb 12, 2019 10:04:15 GMT -4
Donkarasu: While I said I wasn't going to talk about the whole controversy around Vic Mignogna, I do want to say one thing about it and that's, it kind puts me off anything to do with Funimation, especially due to other voice actors being involved in this.
Feb 17, 2019 8:44:25 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: That is my biggest grief behind it. They honestly shouldn't of said anything at all, rather than outright lashing at fans that disagree with them.
Feb 17, 2019 19:44:19 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Regarding Sean Schemmel being the latest person to be a part of it, that causes me to say this: Even if you're not a fan of Masako Nozawa's Goku voice, at least she's a kind woman who respects fans and has never caused any sort of controversy.
Feb 18, 2019 13:03:11 GMT -4
Donkarasu: And for the record, this is not the only time Schemmel did/said something which caused some outrage.
Feb 18, 2019 13:04:46 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Yeah, I'm aware. His past sins have come to light and while I was able to tolerate a lot of it, his latest episode was were the line in the sand has been crossed. Cancelled Funimation account as well.
Feb 18, 2019 23:00:57 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: If he's gonna be an arrogant butt that insults the hands that feed him, then he'll have to accept the consequences of it and hopefully that'll stick. Still yeah. I was never annoyed with Nozawa's Goku voice and she is really nice.
Feb 18, 2019 23:03:51 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I mean, Goku's supposed to sound like a disrespectful county hic (remember his inspiration from Journey of the West which the Monkey King routinely pissed off the gods)
Feb 18, 2019 23:05:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: and I think most complaints stem from just different tastes in vocals from us overseas. I honestly wonder why people make a really big deal out of it. Not everyone is Norio Wakamoto
