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 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.

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.

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.
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.
Mar 26, 2019 19:13:53 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.
Mar 31, 2019 21:30:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was
Apr 1, 2019 23:27:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.
Apr 1, 2019 23:32:17 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
