Datamining Report: Cosmog and Team GO Rocket Special Research Texts

Posted in

Hello Trainers! Pokémon GO has had some texts pushed pertaining to Pokémon Sleep, the texts for the Cosmog special research for the Solstice Event, along with the texts for the Team Go Rocket Special Research. 

So spoiler alert for the two special research lines!!  It’s a data mine report, so that kinda goes without saying but hey, never can be too careful right?

Please read through all of this with a grain of salt – we often post data mining reports that take months to release, and we don’t want our readers disappointed. Be smart, read this like speculation, and be happy once it goes live.

💡 Disclaimer: You know the drill by now, everything in this article is data mined, and therefore subject to change or not even being released at all. All this information is publicly provided by the PokéMiners and includes some of my commentaries.

Step 1

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0
TEXT: Starry Skies (1/4)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_0
TEXT: %PLAYERNAME%, great timing!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_1
TEXT: I just got back from a harrowing expedition. I’ll spare you the gritty details, but it involved boulders, quicksand, and lots of Venipede.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_2
TEXT: Anyway, I’ve come out on the other side with some exciting treasures: fossils, King’s Rocks, and a trove of maps!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_3
TEXT: It’s hard to determine who or what left the maps behind, especially given their contents. For example, this one apparently leads to “the world’s tastiest Poffin.”

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_4
TEXT: There was one in particular that caught my eye: a map of the skies showing the exact position of the stars today!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_5
TEXT: It made me wonder if this is a purely informational map, or if it points toward something special.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_6
TEXT: What do you say we find out together?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_7
TEXT: Seeing as the stars are our inspiration, how about we focus on either diurnal Pokémon—meaning Pokémon that are active during the day—or their opposite, nocturnal Pokémon?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_0_8
TEXT: Take some time to think about which Pokémon you’re more interested in researching. Once you’ve decided, we can set off!

Oh look, Willow got himself in trouble again… Also, I had no idea that the opposite of nocturnal was diurnal.  Anyway, looks like we get to choose between day or night.

Step 1 – Choice Daytime or Nighttime

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_branch_0
TEXT: Which would you rather research: Pokémon that appear during the daytime or Pokémon that appear at night?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_branch_1_title_key
TEXT: Help Research Daytime Pokémon

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_branch_1_button_key
TEXT: Help Research Daytime Pokémon

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_branch_1_description_key
TEXT: Choose this option to help research Pokémon that are more active during the day. You’ll be tasked with exploring widely and catching many Pokémon.RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_branch_2_title_key

TEXT: Help Research Nighttime Pokémon

Texts for the Daytime and Nighttime branch choice.

Step 2 – Day

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1
TEXT: Starry Skies (2/4)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1a_0
TEXT: Great choice! There’s nothing like a warm sunbeam to refresh a tired body!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1a_1
TEXT: Speaking of which, here’s a refreshing Pokémon fact: the leaves on Petilil’s head are highly valued for medicinal purposes. They provide relief from weariness—even more so when boiled.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1a_2
TEXT: Heh. Now I’m in the mood to look for some Grass-type Pokémon. Shall we, %PLAYERNAME%?

If you choose the day branch, you’ll be after some Grass-type Pokémon.

Step 2 – Night

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1
TEXT: Starry Skies (2/4)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1b_0
TEXT: Great choice! I always enjoy a stroll in the cool, crisp moonlight.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1b_1
TEXT: Speaking of which, here’s a cool Pokémon fact: Misdreavus conceals itself in darkness, sending chills up travelers’ spines with its childlike weeping.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_1b_2
TEXT: Spooky, eh? Now I’m in the mood to look for some Ghost-type Pokémon. Shall we, %PLAYERNAME%?

If you choose the Nighttime branch you’ll be sent after some Ghost-type Pokémon.

Step 3

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2
TEXT: Starry Skies (3/4)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2_0

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2_1
TEXT: It has been some time since we last spoke. Have you been faring well?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2_2
TEXT: Splendid. Are you out doing research for Professor Willow?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2_4
TEXT: I, too, find the cycles of the sun and moon fascinating.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2_5
TEXT: But I am here for a different matter. I have picked up readings that indicate the presence of something from beyond this world.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2_6
TEXT: I had hoped to request your company, but your research for Professor Willow comes first.

It’s Cosmog, so you know Rhi is making an appearance. They’ll stick around to help you with Willow’s tasks.

Step 3 – Day

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2a_3
TEXT: I see. So you‘ve both been moved to study Pokémon associated with daytime after finding a celestial chart.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2a_7
TEXT: This is farewell for now. I hope you and your Buddy Pokémon have a radiant day, %PLAYERNAME%.

Step 3 – Night

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2b_3
TEXT: I see. So you‘ve both been moved to study Pokémon associated with nighttime after finding a celestial chart.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_2b_7
TEXT: This is farewell for now, %PLAYERNAME%. I hope you have a fruitful day—or should I say night?—learning about Pokémon.

Step 4

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3
TEXT: Starry Skies (4/4)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_0
TEXT: Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%! How did it go?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_1
TEXT: You ran into Rhi? They just stopped by to chat with me, too!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_2
TEXT: Rhi was hot on the heels of something otherworldly. We were getting ready to rally the Team Leaders when—get this—a Cosmog blissfully bobbed by!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_3
TEXT: You don’t see that every day.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_4
TEXT: I recall Rhi mentioning that Cosmog’s gaseous body can be blown away by the slightest breeze, but it doesn’t seem to care.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_5
TEXT: Even so, we can’t just leave it be. You’d better hurry and catch that Cosmog before it blows into some trouble!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_6
TEXT: While you’re doing that, I’ll ponder how another Cosmog found its way here...and whether it was more than luck that we happened to have a map of the stars on this exact day.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_cosmog_sol23_3_7
TEXT: Mysteries to illuminate in the future, as Rhi might say!

Apparently, you need to save Cosmog from blowing away.  Get catching!

A Shadowy Disturbance

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_title
TEXT: A Shadowy Disturbance

This round of the Team Go Rocket Special Research is called A Shadowy Disturbance.

Step 1

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0
TEXT: A Shadowy Disturbance (1/5)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_0
TEXT: I’m sure I left them around here somewhere...

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_1

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_2
TEXT: You haven’t seen my earplugs, have you? Those Team GO Rocket Grunts over there have been blasting music at higher volume than a Loudred all day!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_3
TEXT: What’s more, I’ve barely been able to walk two steps without the crinkling of littered candy wrappers underfoot.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_4
TEXT: And do you see all the bright red Rs they’ve spray-painted around here?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_5
TEXT: I’m all for a good party, but theirs has been a real nuisance.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_0_6
TEXT: Could you have a chat with those Grunts while I clean things up, %PLAYERNAME%?

Willow wants us to have a chat with some Team GO Rocket grunts because chit-chat is what they’re known for.

Step 2

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_1
TEXT: A Shadowy Disturbance (2/5)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_1_0
TEXT: How did it go, %PLAYERNAME%? Did you have a calm, reasonable discussion with those Team GO Rocket Grunts?

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_1_1
TEXT: No? They just started battling you? *sigh* I guess that’s to be expected.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_1_2
TEXT: Well, thanks for getting them to quiet down all the same! I can finally hear myself think again.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_1_3
TEXT: And what I’m thinking is, there’s no way those rambunctious Grunts would settle down so easily. I’m positive they’ll come back before long.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_1_4
TEXT: Could you “chat” with them again if you see them, please?

That’s right Willow, they were not interested in talking. Shocking, I know.

Step 3

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_2
TEXT: A Shadowy Disturbance (3/5)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_2_0
TEXT: Well done, %PLAYERNAME%!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_2_1
TEXT: You defeated them so quickly, it almost makes ME want to start a party!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_2_2
TEXT: But it’ll have to wait, because right as those Grunts scampered away, I overheard them muttering about coming back bigger, louder, and wilder than ever.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_2_3
TEXT: We can’t have them disturbing the local Pokémon—to say nothing of the assault on my eardrums!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_2_4
TEXT: Let’s put in a complaint with their superiors, shall we? Defeat the Team GO Rocket Leaders!

Ah yes, let’s go talk to the leaders now. I don’t think that’s going to go how you want it to Willow.

Step 4

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_3
TEXT: A Shadowy Disturbance (4/5)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_3_0
TEXT: Great work, %PLAYERNAME%!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_3_1
TEXT: You’ve won us some peace and quiet, but I think we should make certain Team GO Rocket isn’t planning any more mischief.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_3_2
TEXT: And that means taking down their boss, Giovanni!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_3_3
TEXT: I know you can do it!

At least he’s not suggesting we have some sort of conversation with Giovanni.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_4
TEXT: A Shadowy Disturbance (5/5)

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_4_0
TEXT: Expertly done, %PLAYERNAME%!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_4_1
TEXT: Good news on my end—Meltan and I are just about finished picking up all the litter Team GO Rocket left behind.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_4_2
TEXT: Thanks for your help today. We should throw our own party to celebrate your success!

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_4_3
TEXT: a reasonable volume. And we’ll pick up after ourselves, of course.

RESOURCE ID: story_quest_rockethq15_4_4
TEXT: I’ll see you again soon, %PLAYERNAME%!

Ey, I’m down for a party!
