Well, at least you'll be able to get the items a few months from now anyway according to the Serebii news. It is just advanced receival with the competitions. I thought about joining, but I'd forget to do any matches or something.
I keep track of the Global Mission stuff because I've been obsessed with them since the first one. I really enjoy Festival Plaza, although that might be because I've never experienced any of the other side content for games with Moon being my first and then me working backwards.
Komala is the only one I managed on purpose. The only other shiny I bred was an Anorith I used to get my Reshiram. I use my Reshiram and my Amphoras competitively but they aren't like, ace competitive. Mostly just goofing around with my friends.
