Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%! I hope you and your fellow Trainers have been taking care of yourselves. Remember to take a break every now and then to do something you really enjoy! I like to go on short walks, myself.
In fact, I was out for a stroll with my Buddy Pokémon earlier when I heard a strange crackling sound.
Upon further inspection, I realized it was a large group of Charmander gathered in an open field! The source of the noise was the soft crackling of their tail flames.
Seeing so many Charmander at once was highly unusual, though this wasn’t the first time I’ve witnessed such a gathering...
Catch chance
Well, whatever the reason, this is the perfect chance to learn more about Charmander!
Pokémon Manager
Would you mind giving me a hand by catching some, Trainer?
Wonderful work, Trainer.
While you were out in the field, I looked through some research focused on Charmander and its Evolutionary line and came away with some interesting information.
For starters, Charmander is also known as the Lizard Pokémon and seems to be fond of hot things. You can tell how a Charmander is feeling by looking at the flame burning at the tip of its tail. What a fascinating Pokémon!
Hmmm... Perhaps those Charmander I ran into while walking were gathered to enjoy the sun? We may be able to learn more by evolving one.
Charmander’s evolved form is Charmeleon—but be careful when evolving Charmander! Charmeleon is known for its fiery temper!
That’s a fine Charmeleon you’ve got with you, %PLAYERNAME%!
Known as the Flame Pokémon, Charmeleon is hotheaded by nature and is constantly seeking out worthy opponents for battle.
When it finally encounters a worthy foe, it becomes so excited that the flame at the tip of its tail flares up and turns a bluish-white color.
The easiest way to calm a Charmeleon down is by winning a battle. That sure sounds like a certain team leader I know!
Now, did you know Charmeleon can evolve? Not only that, but its evolved form, Charizard, is also known as the Flame Pokémon! Come back and see me once you’ve evolved your Charmeleon.
Congrats, Trainer! Your Charmeleon has now become the Flame Pokémon Charizard!
Charizard is a truly amazing Pokémon. Its wings can carry it close to an altitude of 4,600 feet, and its fiery breath packs such great heat that it can melt almost anything!
While all that raw power seems intimidating, Charizard never turns its flames on any opponent weaker than itself.
What a superb display of control! It’s amazing to see how this Pokémon chooses to take on only the mightiest of opponents!
They say the key to a successful partnership is a powerful bond, Trainer, so why not celebrate by spending a little time with your new Charizard?
I can see you’re really putting an effort into strengthening the bond between you and your Pokémon, %PLAYERNAME%. Did you know that that bond can become a source of power for certain Pokémon? That’s right—I’m talking about Mega Evolution!
Mega Evolution is the result of a strong connection between a Pokémon and its Trainer. Charizard is unique not only because it can Mega Evolve but also because it has two different Mega-Evolved forms!
Its two Mega Evolutions, Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y, each come with their own strengths.
It’s said that the overwhelming power dwelling within Mega Charizard X is so intense that it turns its body black and causes blue flames to spill from its mouth.
Other research suggests that Mega Charizard Y uses its bond with its Trainer as the source of its power, resulting in speed and maneuverability greater than that of a fighter jet’s.
Simply amazing! I can’t wait to see how Trainers use these Mega Evolutions in their Gym battle strategies!
Thanks again for your help, %PLAYERNAME%. I’ll be in touch as soon as I have more exciting research to share!
BOO! Haha, hey there, %PLAYERNAME%!
I find it offensive
Hope I didn’t scare you too much, I was just having a bit of fun during this spooky season.

Say, since you’re here, I was wondering if you could help me. I’ve heard some reports of an unusual Pokémon appearing in a nearby forest.
It’s a scam or misleading
Ah—why aren’t I just going into the dark forest myself to find this Pokémon? Scared? No! Not at all!
It’s sexually inappropriate
Y-you see, I would, but I’m busy here with some...um...research! Yes!
It’s spam
Oh! I think I see Blanche over there near my lab and it looks like they need my help with evolving some Ghost-type Pokémon.

Ah, Blanche, do you really think it's Galarian form will be able to evolve— oh, glad to see you again %PLAYERNAME%—AH!
Thank you for your contribution!
What’s that sound?! Oh, it’s just a Yamask, looks like it’s looking at its mask and crying again.

This was what you found in the forest? Ah, I see. Sorry, Trainer but it looks like you’re going to have to venture back into the woods for me.
I want more Sponsored Gifts in general
After cross-referencing eyewitness reports with some texts I found about Ghost-type Pokémon, turns out we are not looking for this particular Yamask, which was discovered in the Unova region—but another one entirely!
This other one hails from the Galar region and looks almost like stone, not a mask. Sources say the slab absorbs the Yamask's dark power. It appears Galarian Yamask might be a bit different than its Unovan counterpart.

Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%! I think I’ve got an exciting adventure for you. I’ve been working on something...BIG.
The Seasons Change: Part 1
Recently, we observed a large number of Weedle appearing in the wild. I wanted to investigate that phenomenon further.
Search for a Pokémon, e.g. :Pokemon
The Seasons Change: Part 2
After a day of research, I saw something sparkling in the tall grass near where the Weedle were gathering.
It turned out to be a smooth, stonelike object with a symbol etched into it. It glowed with an energy I’ve never encountered before!
Critital hit chance
Longchamp Backpack
I’d seen that symbol before in documents about Mega Evolution that I received from my colleague in Kalos, Professor Sycamore. That led me to believe that the object was somehow related.
Crown Tundra Bag
After digging further into the documents, I theorized that Pokémon can Mega Evolve using the energy from the object I found, which I named Mega Energy.
Ultra Moon Bag
It also occurred to me that the object I found might be related to Weedle.

Now that I’ve caught you up on my BIG discovery, let’s get started on some research. We’ll need a Weedle—I think that Pokémon has mega potential!

Great work, %PLAYERNAME%! Let’s document our findings for other Trainers.

Now, Weedle can’t Mega Evolve, but its final Evolution, Beedrill, can.
Main move

My theory is that there is Mega Energy for different Pokémon and that each Pokémon needs a certain amount of Mega Energy to Mega Evolve.

It also seems that Mega-Evolved Pokémon return to normal once their Mega Energy is depleted.
Arlo-Style Glasses
It may be difficult to gather the Mega Energy needed to Mega Evolve a Pokémon for the first time. However, it seems that once a Pokémon has Mega Evolved, it requires less Mega Energy to do so again.

Maybe it’s because Mega Evolution strengthens a Trainer’s bond with their Pokémon.

Well, I’m not entirely sure why, but Porygon have been appearing more frequently in the area as of late!
Combat Power is a combination of the Attack, Defense, and Stamina of Pokémon. Different Pokémon all have varying base stats and Pokémon with higher CP points have greater multiples of the base stats. This means that at the same CP levels, the Pokémon with the higher base stats will be more powerful.

I’d like to take this opportunity to learn more about this odd Pokémon. How about it, Trainer? Will you go out and catch some Porygon for me?

According to my findings, further research and the implementation of artificial intelligence into its code allowed Porygon2 to develop the ability to learn independent of its programming.

Because the update caused instability, academics can’t seem to agree on whether Porygon-Z should be considered a true Evolution of Porygon2.

Not all Pokémon are equal: two max-level Pokémon can have different IVs, resulting in one which will be more powerful then the others. For example, a level 40 <a href=":url">:pokemon</a> can have a CP of between 2,229 and 2,603.

I was investigating the digging patterns of Diglett, and I wound up heading deep into a cave. Inside, I came across some unusual markings carved heavily into the cavern walls.
Individual Pokémon
Nice to see you again, %PLAYERNAME%! I’m excited to get started on our next big adventure.
All movesets
We’re going to focus our efforts on Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, because I have some leads on a Pokémon I’ve never seen before!
First, we need to get some baseline research to help track this Pokémon.
A few weeks ago, I came across an ancient text that was found in the Hoenn region. It was filled with fascinating information.
Base capture rate
I should make up for the rude awakening with some Berries... Well, we’ve learned something important here, and I think this method could work to awaken even the deepest of sleepers.
Base flee rate
If my calculations are correct, the wish-granting Mythical Pokémon might be ready to awaken soon, and we should be prepared to do the waking!
Good work, %PLAYERNAME%. With the help of your research, I’ve been able to decipher more of this ancient text.
It says that when the Mythical Pokémon awakens, it will grant any wishes written on notes attached to its head.
