I want a Chikorita, it's my fave. So I just turned my game on, scanned 10 different QR codes in one go (from what I read, it didn't seem like I could do this, but regardless), and thus my total went to 100 points. Now I wait till Friday, save at Melemele Island, and try Island Scan: the game will then grant me the chance to find a wild Chikorita on Route 2 during one hour? And I can keep running away from battle until I meet a female?

So it just does not matter which 10 QR codes I scan during a day, as long as I scan them? Being able to scan 10 QR codes in one go went against everything I thought I understood about this thing, LOL.


A few things.

You get a qr scan every 2 hours. I believe the game will let you pocket ten or so, which is why you were able to scan all ten.

You get one hour to find the island scan poke.
Always save your game BEFORE you island scan. Once you start the island scan timer, turning your 3DS off will NOT stop the clock if you save after the scan. You can soft reset and try again if you saved before scanning.

Make sure you're on the correct island and it's the right day of the week. Don't look for a Pokémon listed in an area that isn't open to you yet, or you won't be able to capture it.

KOing a Pokémon, catching it, or running out of time will end the island scan. Running from the Pokémon will not.

In this thread there's a link to all the Alola Dex Pokémon QR codes. You can literally scan ANY qr code on anything and the game will accept it though.

Oh and don't wait until Friday! You can get your choice of any of the special island scan Pokémon all week and then get ten scans for Chikorita on Friday.

Hope that helps.

Oh, I see! That's good to know. Also, is the Island Scan fixed per day per Island, or I can random things and Chikorita is a special possibility for Melemele on Friday?

Nah, you can only get Monday's Pokémon today on their respective islands and so on throughout the week.

I'm guessing they did it that way so it'd be simpler to get them all. Probably better that way really, so the game just doesn't constantly randomly generate the wrong Pokémon.

Go to your game menu, then switch to the left page of the menu, and then click the QR scanner button

its a figure that was sold in Japan that apparently made an Island Scanable Charizard a thing, then people bred them for Charmander.
