I'm a bit confused on what these actually are. I googled "Ga ore Pokemon" and found the Japanese game disks. Are you able to scan the QR codes to get the Pokemon into your games? I was hoping to buy them all for my collection someday but I never suspected them as having a practical use.

Yup, the Japanese game discs.

When scanning them on a JP 3DS, the respective Pokemon will become "seen" in your Pokedex,
and you get 20 Points instead of the usual 10 Points, for scanning a QR code. (referring to points used in the daily Island Scan feature)

The collection is more for novelty sake since,
if they are not in Alolan Dex, you can't tell that you registered them,
but if you don't own them, it'll save time on the GTS. (search by alphabet, rather than typing out the entire name)

Also, we don't know if they intend to add the National Dex to USUM.
(If they do, it may come in useful)

Ahh, I thought these actually gave you Pokemon. Like the Magearna one does. I never played SuMo past the second Pokemon center so I didn't have any idea scanning QR codes was a thing.

If only they gave the Pokemon.
(then again, if they did, it'll probably be harder to find the codes online >< )

Only Magearna and the upcoming Movie Pikachu codes give Pokemon.

The Island Scans basically give you a free out-of-alola encounter a day.

Yeah we're missing a big bunch of these.

not everyone wants to show the QR code online, and using certain search terms in Japanese (Pokemon, shiny) easily shows a bunch of other images. :/

I fear we miss a lot of them. Sometimes it's hard to get the QR codes because people cover them when they share images of Ga-Ole discs or the quality is to low.

Bulbapedia has lists of all the sets https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pokémon_Ga-Olé#Release_history

I am not sure how to read what we have and the set info to know what we are missing. I think we should put together a list and maybe users like @argus1963, @Purin, and others can help fill in gaps.
