Hello Trainers! A new bundle of texts has been pushed to the game today, bringing us glimpse of new snapshot-type quests, a few updated Pokédex entries and a handful of smaller changes.

You know the drill by now, everything in this article is datamined, and therefore subject to be changed or not even being released at all. You’ll see a running theme as we go along as well, that a lot of this seems unfinished. Credits go to Pokéminers.

Snapshot Quests

Several new Pokémon Snapshot quests were spotted. We are not sure if these are related to the Pokémon GO New Pokémon Snap Celebration Event or just standalone quests that appear to be added now. In any case, here we are:

Pokedex Updates

Several Pokémon received refreshed Pokédex updates, including Zygarde and Yveltal which are not yet released:

Chespin Spiky Nut Pokémon
Quilladin It relies on its sturdy shell to deflect predators’ attacks. It counterattacks with its sharp quills.
Exeggcute This Pokémon consists of six eggs that form a closely knit cluster. The six eggs attract each other and spin around. When cracks increasingly appear on the eggs, Exeggcute is close to evolution.
Pangoro Although it possesses a violent temperament, it won’t put up with bullying. It uses the leaf in its mouth to sense the movements of its enemies.
Aurorus The diamond-shaped crystals on its body expel air as cold as -240 degrees Fahrenheit, surrounding its enemies and encasing them in ice.
Goomy The weakest Dragon-type Pokémon, it lives in damp, shady places, so its body doesn’t dry out.
Sliggoo It drives away opponents by excreting a sticky liquid that can dissolve anything. Its eyes devolved, so it can’t see anything.
Bergmite It blocks opponents’ attacks with the ice that shields its body. It uses cold air to repair any cracks with new ice.
Yveltal When this legendary Pokémon’s wings and tail feathers spread wide and glow red, it absorbs the life force of living creatures.
Zygarde When the Kalos region’s ecosystem falls into disarray, it appears and reveals its secret power.
Hoopa In its true form, it possess a huge amount of power. Legends of its avarice tell how it once carried off an entire castle to gain the treasure hidden within.
Volcanion It lets out billows of steam and disappears into the dense fog. It’s said to live in mountains where humans do not tread.
Mr. Rime It’s highly skilled at tap-dancing. It waves its cane of ice in time with its graceful movements.
