The Global Link has announced that the sixth generation Global Link that powers some of the online functionality for Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire will be shut down in late October, a few weeks before the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon. The change will mean that Game Sync will no longer function, and the Global Link website will be inaccessible. Additionally, you'll no longer be able to compete in Rating Battles or the Online Competitions.

The sixth generation Global Link was a nifty idea that was released alongside Pokémon X and Y in 2013, which caused all of Game Freak's servers to melt under the flood of newly-minted trainers. The service is the home to the PokéMileage Club, the Medal system, a Logbook of in-game events, and the Online Competitions, among other features. Unfortunately, it wasn't given much attention after XY's release and received nothing new with Omega...
