Every Pokemon has its own unique QR code. Use the Island Scan ability to scan ten QR codes to get 100 QR points (10 points per scan). After getting those points, scan one of the four islands for a rare Pokemon. There is a different Pokemon available each day of the week.
- Monday: Totodile (Melemele), Spheal (Akala), Swinub (Ula'ula), Conkeldurr (Poni)
- Tuesday: Deino (Melemele), Luxio (Akala), Duosion (Ula'ula), Togekiss (Poni)

Shiny Pokemon are extremely rare variants of regular Pokemon. They are completely cosmetic, but finding a shiny Pokemon can drastically increase your trading ability —- and they also look really nice. Shiny Pokemon are the rarest to find, but they can be farmed a lot easier using Ultra Wormholes. Ultra Wormholes become available after you become Alola Champion, and are located in the Altar Of The Sunne/Moone. Enter the Ultra Wormhole to start a mini-game. Reach 3,000+ Light Years to begin increasing your chances of finding Shiny Pokemon. Travel further than that to continue to increase your chances. It is possible to find approximately one Shiny Pokemon every hour using Ultra Wormholes. Additionally, Shiny Pokemon can be reset whether a Pokemon is shiny or not is determined when you enter a wormhole. Nature and IVs are determined when you enter the battle -- meaning you can reset the Pokemon and try for better quality Shiny Pokemon. While Wormhole running, Pokemon in wormholes discovered at high LY (Light Years) will always have at least three Perfect IVs. Note: To improve Wormhole running, change your controls from motion-controlled to D-pad controlled to provide much more accurate control, making it easier to reach a higher LY. To change Ultra Wormhole controls, go to Heahea City on Akala Island and enter the GameFreak Offices. Talk to the Aether scientist on the left to switch controls. The further you travel, the higher your LY, and the more likely you are to encounter powerful, competitive Shiny Pokemon.Easy XP
It is recommended to have the following two items to make XP farming much easier, but they are not required.
Lucky Egg: Talk to Professor Kukui after completing the game and obtaining at least 50 species of Pokemon to get it.
Absol Pokemon: Catch it on Mount Lanakila. An Absol is useful due to the False Swipe move (leaves Pokemon with 1 HP) and the Pressure ability. Try to catch an Absol with Pressure.
Complete the following steps to take advantage of SOS Pokemon encounters and easily farm XP:
1. Go to Poni Meadow on Poni Island.
2. Find a shaking bush and save your game. Chansey will often spawn and ambush from a bush in this area.
3. Get close to the bush, and if a Chansey jumps out, fight it. If not, reload until one does appear.
4. Send out Absol with False Swipe and Pressure. Any Pokemon with that combo will work. Pressure will increase the chances of your opponent calling for SOS Pokemon.
5. Use False Swipe to lower Chansey's HP to 1. Then, use Adrenaline Orbs to further increase the chances of SOS Pokemon.
6. Defeat the Chansey/Blissey that is summoned. You will get 5k/7k XP respectively for each defeat.
7. Do not defeat the original Chansey. Just keep your HP up, and defeat the incoming SOS Pokemon until you have obtained the desired amount of XP.
This method is very effective and easy to complete post-game. It is only useful for leveling up your Pokemon quickly after you are already champion, but the method basically applies at any level. You can farm SOS Pokemon at any time. Note: Make sure to drop low-level Pokemon in your party and enable XP sharing to level up Pokemon very quickly. Level 1 Pokemon will gain a lot of levels after each individual SOS Pokemon defeat.Easy money
To get an easy $15,000 daily, complete Po Town and defeat Team Skull as you progress in the story. After Po Town has been completed, return to find Office Worker Royce. Defeat him in a Pokemon battle to gain his trust and complete his side quest. Then, Royce will sell one Big Nugget each day for $5,000. You can then sell the Big Nugget for $20,000, netting a $15,000 profit each day.
Once you obtain Taurus, you can earn money by crushing rocks at the Poni Breaker Coast and selling them for PokeDollars. Stardust can be sold for 1,500 PokeDollars, Star Piece for 6,000 PokeDollars, and Comet Shard for 30,000 PokeDollars. To earn money using this method, destroy four boulders at Poni Coast and then go north. Once you reach the Ancient Poni Path, go back and destroy four boulders again. Next, travel south and destroy four boulders, then go back to the coast to destroy some more boulders. Repeat this process as many times as desired.
Examine the six Pyukumuku wandering the beach in Akala Island Hano Grand Resort and return them to the sea to get 20,000 PokeDollars. This side quest is activated by talking to a man on the beach. It can be done once a day.
Find the Wimpod on the coast towards the south of Akala Island, near Route 8. Use Taurus' dash to chase the Wimpod. Defeat the Wimpod for it to drop a Big Pearl worth 4,000 PokeDollars, a nugget worth 5,000 PokeDollars, and a big nugget worth 20,000 PokeDollars.
Some Pokemon can be sold to people for large PokeDollar rewards. On Melemele Island, you can sell Abra to a woman near the Hau'oli City Pokemon Center for 10,000 PokeDollars. The following Pokemon can also be given to people for large rewards:
Crabrawler: It can be found on Route 2 and sold to a woman near the Pokemon Center on the same route for 3,000 PokeDollars.
Garchomp: It can be found in Haina Desert and sold to the Aether Foundation representative near the Pokemon Center Cafe on Route 16 for 20,000 PokeDollars.
Goomy: It can be found in Lush Jungle and sold to the Aether Foundation Base on Route 8 for 5,000 PokeDollars.
Minior: It can be found on Hokulani and sold to a man in the boutique of Malie City for 10,000 PokeDollars.
Sableye: It can be found in the grass on Ten Carat Hill and sold to a man on Route 1 and 3 for 3,000 PokeDollars.
Salazzle: It can be found in Wela Volano Park and sold to a man near the Heahea City Apparel Store for 10,000 PokeDollars.
Xatee: It can be sold to the KoniKoni City Pokemon Center for 5,000 PokeDollars.
First, try having a powerful Pokemon like Charizard. Try using Pokemon with passive abilities that increase the points you earn in Mantine mini-games to make this farming method even faster, but you can still use it without an optimized team. Go to Heahea Beach on Akala Island. Ride the Mantine and select "Melemele Surf Spot". Boost your speed to reach the "orange" top-speed. To boost speed, move up (right) then down (left) the wave rapidly. Jump off the wave and complete as many tricks as possible. Use Lanturn 360 (once unlocked) as your main move. Land back on the wave, quickly get your speed up to max, and jump again. Keep getting your speed up to max, then jumping and doing tricks mid-air. Keep completing surf spots and getting first place to earn easy BP and new moves that will allow you to unlock more moves, making first place victories even easier. Get all the moves to unlock Surf Pikachu.Getting Rare Candy
Rare Candy is uncommon to obtain, but it is useful to teach your Pokemon new moves and evolve them. It should be used wisely since it is not readily available and cannot be purchased from the shop. It can also be sold for approximately 5,000 to 6,000 Pokedollars each. However, it is not recommended to sell them since their actual use outweighs the monetary benefit you gain from selling them. There are multiple ways to obtain Rare Candy. One way is to win over 20 times in the Battle Tree to get one candy from the receptionist. However, it can be difficult to get 20 wins in the Battle Tree. You can also get Rare Candy using BP. One piece of candy costs 48 BP and can be purchased from the receptionist that sits towards the left side of the Battle Tree lobby. Additionally, capture an Alolan Meowth and use it to collect items after a battle ends to get Rare Candy. The rate of acquiring Rare Candy greatly increases after an Alolan Meowth reaches Level 51.Ultra Wormhole Pokemon

Popplio is good for the main storyline, but it can also do goof against late-game enemies due to good type matchup. However, it is recommended to use Rowlet as a starting Pokemon. Rowlet can take a lot of damage due to its high HP. It gets Ghost Typing when it turns into Decidueye. It can cause neutral damage to Ampharos and Tropius. It can also cause very effective damage to Tyranitar. You can also use Litten if you turn it into Incineroar and it gains Dark Typing. Doing this will make it neutral against Volcarona. It can also deal neutral damage to Zoroark, Apmharos, and Manectric. Do not expect it to do much when facing Houndoon, as it shares the same type. It is also type advantageous to Tropius.Alternate Ultra Warp Ride controls
When first using the Ultra Warp Ride, you must use the 3DS's gyroscope to move around. You can change the controls by going to the Game Freak office in Heahea City. The technician in the corner will ask if you prefer the gyroscope or circle pad. The Ultra Warp Ride controls will change depending on your answer.Date with Nurse Joy
