The Island Scan returns in Ultra Sun and Moon The Pokemon Company

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon brings back Island Scan to Alola, and with it, a ton of Pokémon that are not catchable anywhere else in the game.

The Island Scan feature, introduced in Sun and Moon , allowed for trainers to scan QR Codes of the Pokémon they captured (or their friends’) to have a special Pokémon appear somewhere in Alola.

Each scan allots 10 points and it takes 100 points to activate the Island Scan in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The Pokémon will appear for about one hour after activation so go and grab that Pokémon.

Here’s some extra information about Island Scan Pokémon. They won’t activate SOS Battles so if you were hoping to Shiny Chain you can’t. But also, these Pokémon will have a special Egg Move already in their attack arsenal so you won’t have to breed it on .

Of course, certain Pokémon appear through the Island Scan depending on the day and the island you are currently on. Check out the list of all the Pokémon you can catch via the Island Scan broken up by island, day and more.
