Funfest Missions (Japanese: フェスミッション Fes Mission), also known as Entralink Funfests (Japanese: ハイリンクフェス Hilink Fes), are a feature of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, which were introduced in place of Entralink Missions which were available in Pokémon Black and White. To activate a Funfest Mission, the player must warp to Entralink and activate a mission from the Entree. Once activated, the player will be warped back to their previous location and the mission will begin. Funfest Missions can be activated anywhere in Unova as long as travel to the Entralink is possible there, and unlike Entralink Missions, they can be played either alone or with up to 99 other players. Nearby local players will receive a notification and an option to join the mission in progress from the Tag Log screen, even if they are in a location that does not allow travel to the Entralink.

Each mission has a time limit and tasks players with performing some task to receive points, in pursuit of a target score that varies by mission and level, though players can continue trying to score additional points afterward in order to increase their overall reward. In certain missions, the time limit may be extended with each point scored; these missions will also end immediately once the target score is met and not allow players to seek additional points. If a player joins such a mission in progress, the current timer, which already reflects any bonuses from points that may have been awarded, will show up for that player and then immediately be extended by additional bonus time based on the current score up to that point, effectively double-counting those previously existing bonuses for the new player only. If a player has started engaging an NPC in conversation or a Pokémon in battle shortly before time runs out in any mission, the conversation or battle will be allowed to run to its conclusion before the mission is declared over for that player, and if doing so meets the mission's criteria for scoring a point, that final point will be added to the overall tally.

Players can voluntarily end a mission at any time by tapping the white flag icon on the lower right corner of the bottom screen, in which case the mission will be treated as a failure and no rewards will be given even if the target score has already been met. A mission will also terminate without being scored if the player's C-Gear shuts off due to low battery on the console when it attempts to enter Sleep Mode; or if the player boards the Royal Unova; launches other wireless communication activities such as entering the Union Room; films or watches a movie at Pokéstar Studios; performs a Pokémon Musical; challenges the Battle Institute, Battle Subway, or Pokémon World Tournament; or defeats the Champion. If a player (including the mission host) resets or powers off the game while a mission with multiple players is in progress, other players will be able to keep playing, and the original player can rejoin the same mission, time permitting, but the reconnecting player will see the total score omitting any points they had previously earned, and other players' game displays will not acknowledge further points scored by that player until their personal score goes back up to exceed the value it had when they disconnected from the mission.

Upon the successful completion of a mission, the participants will be rewarded with Pass Orbs or alternative items depending on the mission. There is a base reward that's constant for a given mission and level regardless of how much the target score may have been exceeded by, and a Bonus Score of additional copies of the same item, which is calculated as Total Score × Mission Level ÷ 3, rounded down and limited to a maximum of 99. (No Bonus Score will be displayed if it rounds down to 0, as with a level 1 mission that can be completed with one or two points.) For missions that end automatically after reaching the target, in which the time remaining at that point is displayed on the results screen, the bonus score is instead Personal Score + (Seconds Remaining × Mission Level ÷ 45); thus the rewards can vary if two or more players contributed uneven numbers of points to the goal, or see different amounts of time left when it's over. Additionally, in level 3 or 4 missions other than those that end automatically after reaching the target, a Double Score Bonus can be unlocked if the total score reached is at least twice the target score. If this bonus is achieved, an extra item is given to each participant (possibly in multiples), cumulative with the main mission rewards.

Completing a mission can also increase participants' Entree levels, depending on the version of the host player's game: if the player completed their own mission on Pokémon Black 2, the player's Entree would gain ★Black experience equal to the total score, and possibly level up as a result. If the same player wanted to increase their Entree's ☆White level, they would need to visit and join missions being hosted by a White 2 player. The Entree needs 5 ★Black or ☆White experience to reach level 1 of the respective color, 10 additional experience to reach level 2, and so on until each level from 10 onward requires 50 experience of the given color. No experience is given for a mission that falls short of the goal, or gets surrendered out early, no matter how many points had been scored beforehand.

Level 2 and 3 missions can be unlocked by successfully completing earlier levels of the same mission, with up to three stars shown beside the mission name to represent the highest level that has been completed. Level 4 missions can be unlocked by pressing "Select, Down, Down, Down, Up, Up, Up, Up, Select" on the missions screen at any time. Completing a level 4 mission does not unlock lower levels, and does not place stars beside the mission name in the menu, nor does it count toward the "Funfest Complete" medal, but it does add to the player's tracked total of completed missions.

Detailed Information

The First Berry Search!

The player's first mission will be to find 5 Berries within 3 minutes. As with all missions collecting Berries, cities and routes (and, less commonly, caves) have spots with glowing sparkles which will allow the player to obtain a Berry when stepped on. The possible Berries that can be found are:

This mission is only available the first time Funfest Missions are activated and will be no longer available afterward. It is not possible to invite other players to participate in this mission.

Collect Berries!

This mission is unlocked after completing "The First Berry Search!". During the mission, glowing spots appear in cities and on routes which yield Berries when stepped on. If a player already has 999 copies of the Berry in question, they will not receive another one, but the sparkles will still disappear and award a point, as with all similar missions. The possible Berries that can be found in this mission are:

Big Harvest of Berries!

This mission is unlocked by talking to a Backpacker in Mistralton City. During this mission, glowing spots appear in forests and on roads which yield Berries when stepped on. The possible Berries that can be found in this mission are:

Find Lost Items!

This mission is unlocked after completing "Collect Berries!" for the first time. During the mission, glowing spots appear in towns and on roads which yield items when stepped on. The possible items that can be found in this mission are:

Get Rich Quick! / Treasure Hunting!

One of these version-exclusive missions is unlocked by talking to a Pokémon Ranger at the Desert Resort. Black 2 players will unlock "Get Rich Quick!" while White 2 players will unlock "Treasure Hunting!" instead. During the mission, glowing spots appear in forests and caves which yield items when stepped on. The items that can be found in this mission are:

Find Mysterious Ores! / Find Shining Ores!

One of these version-exclusive missions is unlocked by talking to a Lady in Chargestone Cave. Black 2 players will unlock "Find Mysterious Ores!" while White 2 players will unlock "Find Shining Ores!" instead. During the mission, glowing spots appear in caves and on routes which yield items when stepped on. The items that can be found in this mission are:

The <number> Lost Treasures

This mission is unlocked after completing either "Find Mysterious Ores!" or "Find Shining Ores!" for the first time. During the mission, glowing spots appear in caves and on routes which yield valuable items when stepped on. After collecting one of these items, the time limit is extended by 30 seconds. Once the required number of treasures have been found, the mission ends immediately. The items that can be found in this mission are:

Mulch Collector!

This mission is unlocked by talking to a Pokémon Breeder in Abundant Shrine. During this mission, glowing spots appear in forests and caves which yield Mulch when stepped on. The possible types of Mulch are:

Find Shards!

This mission is unlocked by defeating the Champion. During the mission, glowing spots appear in caves and on roads which yield Shards when stepped on. If the player manages to obtain a Shard from another source, such as a dust cloud in Reversal Mountain, that will not add to the tally. The possible types of Shards are:

Where are Fluttering Hearts?

This mission is unlocked by talking to a Rich Boy outside the Pokémon Center in Humilau City, who only appears by himself after defeating the Champion. During this mission, glowing spots appear in towns and on roads which yield items when stepped on. The possible items are:

The Berry-Hunting Adventure!

This mission is unlocked by bringing Meloetta in the player's party to Café Sonata in Castelia City, watching the Relic Song cutscene, then speaking to a female Veteran in the café. It is considered an event mission, and does not count toward earning the "Funfest Complete" medal. During this mission, glowing spots appear in towns, roads, caves and forests which yield Berries when stepped on. The possible Berries that can be found in this mission are:

Find Lost Boys!

This mission is unlocked after completing "The First Berry Search!". During the mission, small boys appear in towns and on routes. If the player talks to a boy, the player will show them his Town Map and the boy will thank the player and leave.

Enjoy Shopping!

This mission is unlocked after completing "Find Lost Boys!" for the first time. During the mission, Poké Mart clerks appear in towns and on roads. If the player talks to a clerk, they offer to sell a specific item at a lower price than usual, and the clerk will disappear after completing the sale. If the player chooses not to buy the item, doesn't have enough money for it, or already has 999 copies of the item, the clerk will remain there; talking to the same clerk again will not change the item being offered. The possible items that can be purchased in this mission are:

Item Original Price Bargain Price

Shocking Shopping!

This mission is unlocked by talking to a black-clad Clerk in the Undella Town Pokémon Center. During the mission, Clerks will appear in various spots in towns, caves, and on routes. If the player talks to one of them, they will offer to sell an item for a random price, determined by multiplying a base increment for each item by a random number between 8 and 49. If the player purchases the item, the Clerk will disappear. If the player rejects the deal, can't afford the price, or already has 999 copies of the item, the Clerk will remain there; upon speaking to him again, the item offered for sale will not change, but a new random price will be generated. The possible items that can be offered, and the random price ranges associated with each one, are:

Item Minimum Price Maximum Price
  Oran Berry  160  980
  Leppa Berry  240  1470

What is the Best Price? / What is the Real Price?

One of these version-exclusive missions is unlocked by defeating the Champion. Black 2 players will unlock "What is the Best Price?", while White 2 players will unlock "What is the Real Price?" instead. It follows the same rules as "Shocking Shopping!", but the items for sale are different:

Train with Martial Artists! / Sparring with <number> Trainers!

"Train with Martial Artists!" is unlocked by talking to an Artist near the fountain in Castelia City, while "Sparring with <number> Trainers!" is unlocked after completing "Train with Martial Artists!" for the first time. During these missions, Black Belts appear in towns, on roads, and in caves. They will only battle the player if talked to, and disappear after being defeated. Their Pokémon start at level 15 (10-14 in Easy Mode, 16-20 in Challenge Mode depending on where the Trainer is, with late-game areas having larger deviations in level) and increase by one with each additional Trainer defeated in total, up to a maximum of 45 after all players have combined to defeat at least 30 Trainers. The base pay for each Trainer is  32. Battling other Trainers unrelated to the mission, even Black Belts, does not add to the tally. In "Sparring with <number> Trainers", a 1-minute time bonus is added to the timer each time the player defeats one of the Black Belts, except that in level 4, Trainers beyond the 50th do not give time extensions. When the requisite number of Trainers has been defeated, the mission ends immediately.

Memory Training! / Push the Limit of Your Memory...

"Memory Training!" is unlocked by speaking to an Artist on the boardwalks in Humilau City, while "Push the Limit of Your Memory..." is unlocked after completing "Memory Training!" for the first time. During these missions, Harlequins (referred to in the mission description as Clowns) appear in scattered spots in towns and on routes. If the player talks to one of them, they will show the names of three Pokémon from the Unova Pokédex in sequence, with each name being accompanied by audio of its cry playing. After all the Pokémon have been listed, the Harlequin will ask which Pokémon was listed in a particular numbered position in the sequence, and provide a multiple-choice menu of five options. Selecting the correct Pokémon that was in that position awards a point and causes the Harlequin to disappear. After an incorrect answer, they remain there and can be spoken to again, time permitting, for another quiz using different Pokémon this time. After the same player answers four questions correctly, the number of Pokemon listed in the sequence for that player's next quiz increases to four, then to five, and up to a maximum of ten once the player has scored at least ten points; the number of options listed in the multiple-choice menu remains at five regardless. In "Memory Training!" the time limit is extended by 30 seconds after each correct quiz answer, and reaching the target score causes the mission to end immediately.

Rock-Paper-Scissors Competition!

This mission is unlocked by speaking to a young girl in a house in Striaton City. During the mission, Preschoolers appear in scattered spots in towns and on routes. If the player talks to one of them, they will challenge the player to a Rock-Paper-Scissors game: the player chooses an option from a menu, then both options are revealed. If the player's selection wins, the Preschooler disappears and awards a point. If the player loses, the Preschooler remains there and can be challenged again, time permitting, until they are defeated. If both revealed options are the same, the menu reappears and the player must select again until the tie is broken, but has the opportunity to do so even if the mission's time limit has already run out.

Give Me the Item!

This mission is unlocked by defeating the Champion. During the mission, Youngsters appear in scattered spots in towns and on routes. If the player talks to one of them, they will ask for a specific type of item, which the player can give to make them disappear and score a point. If the player does not have the mentioned item, or chooses not to give it, the Youngster will be disappointed and remain in place; repeatedly talking to the same one will not change the item he asks for each time. The items that Youngsters can request are as follows:

  Ultra Ball   Great Ball   Poké Ball   Net Ball   Dive Ball   Nest Ball
  Repeat Ball   Timer Ball   Luxury Ball   Premier Ball   Dusk Ball   Heal Ball
  Quick Ball   Potion   Antidote   Burn Heal   Ice Heal   Awakening

Exciting Trading! / Exhilarating Trading!

One of these version-exclusive missions is unlocked by talking to a Backpacker in Anville Town who only appears on weekends, and completing his trade request which requires two Escape Ropes. Black 2 players will unlock "Exciting Trading!", while White 2 players will unlock "Exhilarating Trading!" instead. During the mission, Backpackers will appear in various spots in towns, caves, and on routes. If the player talks to one of them, they will ask to trade a random pair of items. If the player accepts the trade, has the appropriate item to give, and does not already have 999 copies of the item to receive, then the trade will be completed and the Backpacker will disappear. If the player declines the trade and speaks to the same Backpacker again, a new pair of items will be chosen randomly. Selecting the "Well..." option also causes a new pair of items to be chosen for a proposed trade, but if this option is selected multiple times in a row, the Backpacker will interpret this as giving up on the trade, so the player will have to speak to him again to hear a new trade proposal. The possible items that can be chosen in trades are:

Both missions
  Poké Ball   Potion   Antidote
  Burn Heal   Ice Heal   Awakening
  Parlyz Heal   Super Potion   Max Revive
  Fresh Water   Moomoo Milk   Max Elixir
  Super Repel   Max Repel   Escape Rope
  Repel   Everstone   Hard Stone

This mission is unlocked after completing "Give Me the Item!" for the first time. It follows the same rules as "Exciting Trading!" and "Exhilarating Trading!", except that the NPCs that appear for trading with are Ladies instead of Backpackers, and the items offered for trading are different:

  Poké Ball   Potion   Fresh Water
  Hyper Potion   Max Potion   Elixir
  Escape Rope   Repel   Thick Club
  Stick   Metal Coat   Reaper Cloth
  Odd Incense   Luck Incense   Growth Mulch
  Damp Mulch   Stable Mulch   Gooey Mulch

Find Audino!

This mission is unlocked after completing "The First Berry Search!", and tasks the player with catching or defeating Audino found in rustling grass. Fleeing from Pokémon does not count toward the tally, nor does encountering any other species of Pokémon besides Audino.

Search for <number> Pokémon! / Find Rustling Grass!

"Search for <number> Pokémon!" is unlocked after completing "Find Audino!" for the first time, while "Find Rustling Grass!" is unlocked by defeating the Champion. In these missions, the player is directed to find Pokémon in rustling grass or dust clouds, but the use of any phenomenon, including rippling water or overhead shadows, is acceptable. Once a Pokémon is found by one of these methods, it must be defeated or captured in order to earn the point. Fleeing from Pokémon does not count toward the tally, nor does finding an item (instead of a Pokémon) from a phenomenon. In "Search for <number> Pokémon!", the mission ends immediately when the target score has been met, and each time a player catches or defeats a Pokémon found in this manner, the time limit is extended by 1 minute.

Find Emolga!

This mission is unlocked by entering Route 5, the earliest route on which Emolga is possible to find. The mission tasks the player with catching or defeating Emolga found in rustling grass. Fleeing from Pokémon does not count toward the tally, nor does encountering any other species of Pokémon besides Emolga. The mission description suggests taking advantage of Abilities; if the player's first Pokémon has Static (one of Emolga's possible Abilities) when they walk into a patch of rustling grass, Electric-type Pokémon will be more likely to appear, providing better odds that they will run into Emolga instead of any other Pokémon.

Find Steelix!

This mission is unlocked by defeating the Champion. It tasks the player with catching or defeating Steelix found in dust clouds; they can only be found within Clay Tunnel (including the Underground Ruins) or Twist Mountain. Fleeing from Pokémon does not count toward the tally, nor does encountering any other species of Pokémon besides Steelix. Even in the locations where Steelix can appear, only 40% of dust clouds contain a Pokémon at all, and only 5% of Pokémon encountered this way by default will be Steelix, making it unlikely to encounter even one Steelix during the mission's time limit. Players who have access to the various levels of Lucky Pass Power can use that to increase the odds of Steelix to 10%, 20%, or 30% of Pokémon respectively, while the Exploring Pass Power can make dust clouds appear more frequently.

Mushrooms' Hide-and-Seek!

This mission is unlocked by encountering a fake item in the overworld for the first time. During the mission, the player must find fake items that are Foongus or Amoonguss in disguise, engage them in battle, and capture or defeat them (fleeing from Pokémon does not count toward the tally). Upon starting or joining the mission, all fake items in the overworld that have previously disappeared for the player will respawn. They can be found in the following areas:

Additionally, if the player has Foongus or Amoonguss hiding in a Hidden Grotto, engaging in battle with those also counts, but encountering wild Foongus or Amoonguss in tall grass does not count. Foongus has a chance to appear in Hidden Grottos on Route 5, 6, and 13, while Amoonguss may appear in Hidden Grottos on Route 22, Abundant Shrine, and inside Pinwheel Forest.

Fishing Competition!

This mission is unlocked by obtaining the Super Rod, and tasks the player with fishing up Pokémon using that item. Capturing, defeating, or fleeing from the Pokémon after it's been hooked will all add to the tally, but having the Pokémon get away after taking too long to reel it in does not count. It doesn't matter whether the player fishes in rippling water or not, nor are the encounters required to be any particular species of Pokémon.

Search Hidden Grottoes!

This mission is unlocked by defeating the Champion. It tasks the player with encountering Pokémon in a Hidden Grotto. Capturing, defeating, or fleeing from the Pokémon all add to the tally, but finding an item instead of a Pokémon does not. Encountering stationary Pokémon in other locations, even those that also have their Hidden Ability (such as the Jellicent in Undella Bay), does not count either.

Noisy Hidden Grottoes! / Quiet Hidden Grottoes!

One of these version-exclusive missions will be unlocked after completing "Search Hidden Grottoes!" for the first time. Black 2 players will unlock "Noisy Hidden Grottoes!" while White 2 players will unlock "Quiet Hidden Grottoes!" instead. They follow the same rules as "Search Hidden Grottoes!", but upon starting or joining the mission, a random selection of Hidden Grottoes will have their contents replaced by Stunky ("Noisy Hidden Grottoes!") or Glameow ("Quiet Hidden Grottoes!"), which cannot otherwise be found anywhere in Unova. Encountering Pokémon other than Glameow or Stunky in a Hidden Grotto still counts for points. At the conclusion of the mission, any grottoes that still contain Glameow or Stunky will have their contents removed, regardless of what may have been there before the start of the mission, and the player must walk to regenerate them over time, as usual.

Wings Falling on the Drawbridge

This mission is unlocked by talking to a Pokéfan on Driftveil Drawbridge. It tasks the player with collecting Wings from overhead shadows. Though the description suggests collecting Wings on Driftveil Drawbridge, doing so at Marvelous Bridge is also acceptable and will add to the tally. Encountering a Ducklett or Swanna instead of a Wing does not count.

Find Treasures!

This mission is unlocked by talking to a Worker in Relic Passage, next to the exit to the Pokémon World Tournament. The mission tasks the player with collecting items from dust clouds in various caves. Encountering a Pokémon instead of an item, or finding items from other types of phenomena (i.e. Wings from overhead shadows), does not count.

Ring the Bell... / The Bell that Rings <number> Times

"Ring the Bell..." is unlocked by entering Celestial Tower, while "The Bell that Rings <number> Times" is unlocked after completing "Ring the Bell..." for the first time. During these missions, the player must climb all five floors of Celestial Tower and ring the bell at the top. Once the bell has been rung for a point, the same player cannot earn another point until they leave and reenter the tower, either by walking back down all the floors and out the front door, or by using Fly or Teleport from the roof of the tower. In "The Bell that Rings <number> Times", each point from ringing the bell extends the timer by 1 minute, and reaching the target score causes the mission to end immediately.

Take a Walk with Eggs!

This mission is unlocked by receiving the player's first Egg from the Day Care worker on Route 3. It tasks the player with having Eggs hatch during the mission's time limit. Eggs that the player already had in their party or PC Boxes before the mission started can be hatched and will count toward the tally; the player is not required to receive new Eggs from the Day Care helpers while the mission is going on.
