Poké Pelago

Poké Pelago is a feature in Sun and Moon that allows you to play games to find items, Pokémon, berries, and much more. It is run by the character Mohn, and can be accessed from the menu. The islands use the Pokémon that you have obtained in the game that are in your boxes. By sending your Pokémon to Poké Pelago, you can develop the facilities on your isles along with developing new kinds of isles as well. The more Pokémon you send, the more facilities and isles become available. The main goal of this new feature is to gather Poké Beans.

What are Poké Beans?

Poké Beans have different functions in Pokémon Sun and Moon. First off, there are three different types of Poké Beans: Regular, Patterned, and Rainbow. Poké Beans are primarily collected on Isle Abeens. One use of Poké Beans are in Pokémon Refresh. Beans are used as food and allow you to gain affection points with your Pokémon. The rarer the bean (regular < patterned < rainbow), the more affection points you receive.

Patterned BeansRed Pattern Beanbblbpgpybpbob

Beans can also be exchanged. Note: We recommend not exchanging any beans since the effects of Pattern/Rainbow Beans are much better than total Standard Beans exchanged.

Once a day for the cost of 7 beans, you can send out a Bean Bottle that will be distributed over the internet to other players. If you are lucky, you will sometimes receive Bean Bottles sent by other players.

Islands
Poke Pelago

Poké Pelago consists of five different islands. Isles are unlocked over time and each isle contains its own unique feature and environment. Isles are unlocked once a player acquires a certain amount of Pokémon in their PC boxes and specific number of regular Poké Beans. You can level up each isle up to level 3.

Poké Beans are primarily used for Poké Pelago. They enable you to activate each isle's special feature. The effects on each island are listed below:
