Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%. As you know, I do a lot of research. There are just so many Pokémon to learn about and document! Recently, I’ve been investigating Ralts, the Feeling Pokémon, to learn more about how this Pokémon senses people’s emotions by using the horns on its head. It’s an amazing ability, don’t you think?

I thought studying this Pokémon’s unique sensing powers could help me identify the strange feeling that’s been stirring inside me these past few weeks. I’ve realized, though, that this isn’t any ordinary emotion—it’s a type of energy! This mysterious energy is filling me with hope and determination. I feel like I could take on any challenge and be victorious! I would appreciate your assistance in collecting more information on this strange and fascinating phenomenon.

  • Catch 30 Psychic-type Pokémon => Elgyem encounter
  • Catch 30 Fire-type Pokémon => Darumaka encounter
  • Hatch 3 Eggs => 1x Egg Incubator

Thanks for completing the research we needed to get started, %PLAYERNAME%. While you were catching Pokémon and visiting PokéStops, I started digging through my research and found references to a phenomenon that seems to have a lot in common with what I’ve been experiencing.

The reports refer to a Mythical Pokémon that shares the infinite energy it creates with others to guarantee victory. The reports also state that this Pokémon is Psychic- and Fire-type. What an amazing combination! 

To get closer to confirming the source of the energy, let’s focus our efforts on catching Pokémon that share those same types.

  • Take a snapshot of your buddy => 1x Poffin
  • Earn 3 Candies walking you buddy => 1000XP
  • Power up a Pokémon 3 times => 3x Hyper Portions

Stage rewards:
3x Revive, Espeon Encounter, 1000 Stardust


Wonderful work, %PLAYERNAME%. Thanks to your efforts researching Psychic- and Fire-type Pokémon, we’re well on our way to confirming the source of this mysterious energy. There’s many a mystery surrounding our path forward, so I’ll keep poring over our research notes. In the meantime, I’d like you to work on becoming better friends with your Pokémon.

As a Trainer, strengthening the bond between you and your Pokémon is an important task that requires a specific set of skills. To further develop those skills, why don’t you try spending time with your buddy? Successful partnerships take work and dedication, and talented Trainers build lifelong friendships with their Pokémon. That being said, be sure to spend time with your buddy every day!

The Feeling of Victory 4 of 6

Tasks & Rewards

  • Win 3 Gym battles => 1000 XP
  • Defeat 3 Team GO Rocket Grunts => 1x Lure Module
  • Win 3 Raids => 1000 Stardust

Stage rewards:
3x Max Potions, Victini Encounter (or 20x Victini Candy if you already have Victini), 3x Max Revive


You have a wonderful bond with your buddy, Trainer! It’s been a treat watching that friendship bloom. Now, though, it’s time to focus our efforts on the matter at hand! After further examination of the research you completed, I’m convinced that the Pokémon we’re looking for is Victini, the Victory Pokémon.

Not only would this be consistent with the references to a Psychic- and Fire-type Pokémon, but it would also explain the mysterious surge of energy I’ve been experiencing. It’s time for you to befriend Victini. Since this Pokémon represents victory, I think winning a few battles might inspire it to come forward! I’ve been hearing reports that Team GO Rocket is causing trouble. Battling these troublemakers just might show this Pokémon you’re worthy of attention!

Let’s see whether some victory will attract the Victory Pokémon!

Absolutely astounding, %PLAYERNAME%! I knew you’d be able to display your powerful bonds and battle prowess to impress the Mythical Pokémon Victini. It shares the infinite energy it creates when its body overflows with power, so I’m absolutely certain now that the energy I was feeling was coming directly from Victini!

Be sure to use this power wisely, %PLAYERNAME%, as you and Victini take on new challenges. But for now, your hard work calls for a celebration! Why don’t you take a few snapshots with Victini and share your success with fellow Trainers by sending them some Gifts?
