Why am i seeing that you can catch a charmander via island scan but everything im seeing is the same pokemon available on the days mentioned in this post. Is it random? I cant find what day he is availble or what island yet im seeing its possible. Sorry if its been covered


It's simply an untrue rumor that no one can ever confirm.

Charmander is now available on the GTS because the ban on post bank Pokémon has been lifted.

so maybe hacks then, because Bank still isnt working on my end but charmander and ralts are suddenly in WT and on GTS.

Most likely hacks, yes.

GTS flooded with them today when people realized the bank ban was over. The assumption is, bank is soon to follow.

instead of making my topic about choosing second starters I guess I should've came here first. Thanks for the download. But I have a question for the final evolution unova starters on poni island. Is there a possibility or chance that you can catch the first forms, or do you just catch the final evolved forms and breed them to get there pre evolutions?

Is there an actual point to doing all the scans since they only count as seen but give no actual dex entry? I've been doing them in order just for the heck of it but I only need one more week to get one of everything and if I really want something again the five special codes are faster and repeatable in the same day.

Did you not read the first post? Every Pokemon comes with an egg move in addition to being able to catch the gen 2 and 5 starters with their hidden ability.Thats the biggest appeal of this.

@Minaru44
The benefits are minor.
- Pad your "QR Code Scans" stat in Festival Plaza.
- Any national Pokemon you obtain that aren't part of the Alolan Pokedex, it's remembered by the GTS. So it's like this secret national Dex that you don't have access to.
- There are some unique Poke Balls that you can catch the Island Scan Pokemon in, like the Apricorn Balls and Beast Balls. When you breed Pokemon, the ball will pass down. So, they can be decent trading fodder for collectors. Or you can become a collector yourself, like doing a goal of obtaining all the Beast Ball Pokemon.

You can't get hidden ability Pokemon from Island Scans.

What I meant was that there is probably no point to scanning the list top to bottom. If you complete the dex anyway, you get these entries (and scanning will only count as seen anyway). I have gone to just scanning the Shinies now to get the picture into the dex. ^_^

Can you get a shiny from the island scan? I'm sure you can but it seems like the hardest thinget ever.

Probably harder than HAs which you supposedly can but without SOS calls... I wouldn't try it.

Is there a more complete scan list than the one on imugr? The Shiny entries stop by the Lycanrocs I just noticed. It's mostly a cosmetic thing but since scanning actually adds the picture to the dex entry it would be nice to have these.
