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.

I thank you all for your time here, even if there wasn't much going on. But now it's time to move on...
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.

I thank you all for your time here, even if there wasn't much going on. But now it's time to move on...
ShiningStarlia: I absolutely have no idea how anyone draws the conclusion that it's bringing forth the Apocalypse. Or a Japanese cartoon show having characters use different forms of Japanese dialect and accents to fit their different cultures is the worst thing ever.
Jun 22, 2019 19:24:41 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Either way, it's over with, and tomorrow's episode is something more plot before the league episodes start up. Can focus on that instead of losing one's mind over a forgettable filler episode.
Jun 22, 2019 19:29:23 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Sorry, I need to say this; When you posted those other forum comments, Ryu, it's clear you were reading what you wanted to read and took me saying that you shouldn't act like your life was ruined by this episode as me saying you shouldn't like it at all.
Jun 24, 2019 4:32:42 GMT -4
Donkarasu: This is why I got so pissed off at you, because you purposely twisted what I had said. In fact, a majority of those comments you posted basically had the correct way to dislike this; calling it dumb or annoying, but without any of all the unnecessary rage.
Jun 24, 2019 4:39:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I listened to the full version of the remake for Type: Wild and I found Shōko Nakagawa did a great job.
Jun 25, 2019 12:40:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also way before that (like last week) I heard the remake of Together With The Wind, it was good too.
Jun 25, 2019 12:42:09 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Excellent. I'll get to hearing it whenever I get the chance to.
Jun 25, 2019 16:43:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Goodness gracias that type wild remix was amazing! I love how so full of energy it is!
Jul 8, 2019 17:07:22 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Hah, I can't get over how good the Alolan remixed Type: Wild is. I remember when it played during Infernape vs Electivire; if this song got remixed, we're due for something amazingly good and fun. Can't wait!
Jul 9, 2019 11:53:30 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I forgot to post the magazine scan and translation for the episode that aired yesterday... Oh well.
Jul 15, 2019 5:35:27 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I had no idea this forum had a block button which hides posts that you can open to see.
Jul 15, 2019 18:12:13 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Huh really. Anyway, enjoyed the newest episode. Ash's ironic tobias moment done accidentally and Mallow & Lana's clash.
Jul 15, 2019 22:01:52 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Rowlet in that Decidueye costume is extremely adorable
Jul 28, 2019 17:04:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, THAT was probably the anime's biggest fake-out that I've ever seen and made me go "Wait, what?!" for a couple of minutes until everything was cleared up.
Aug 4, 2019 20:46:02 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I find it so poetically ironic that even its been weeks after that bait and switch fake-out with Rowlet falling asleep...I still see some circle jerking around a few other boards.
Aug 24, 2019 19:26:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: For all the fire that 2016's Kalos League failure drew for Ash losing it down to the wire...never in my wildist imagination would I ever see parts of a community screaming so violently lividly that he should've lost instead.
Aug 24, 2019 19:27:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Whether or not the joke was in good taste is up for debate, though I find it quirky and humorous, I wouldn't think people would get this levels of upset.
Aug 24, 2019 19:28:20 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Saw the incoming upcoming anime episode clip and a certain old friend we've long missed makes their return! I'm so darn excited!
Sept 20, 2019 22:22:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I usually post full summaries for next week's Pokémon episodes on Monday, because that's when the previews show up on YouTube. But this time I decided to post it on the day it was revealed, seeing as that was the ONLY summary for the episode.
