Johto Rocket Collection

RESOURCE ID: mini_collection_jan21_shadow_event 
TEXT: Johto Celebration: Rocket Collection

It looks like the Johto event will have a separate Rocket Collection to complete, or maybe that is the collection.

The Love Cup

RESOURCE ID: love_cup_title TEXT: Love Cup

No hints at what Pokémon will be eligible, however, it’s probably a fair statement to say that Fairy types will be one of the types included.

Pokedex Updates

RESOURCE ID: pokemon_desc_0102 
TEXT: 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.

TEXT: Spiny Nut Pokémon

Updates to the Pokédex entries of Exeggcute and Chespin.

This looks like gifts you can get from sponsored balloons.  Maybe they’ll appear on the map like the Go Rocket balloons, but instead of battles, you’ll get free stuff.

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_0_1 
TEXT: Earlier today, I was distracted by an amazing aroma as I was taking my daily morning walk. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_0_2 
TEXT: Upon further investigation, I discovered that the scent was coming from an unusually large group of Roselia appearing by a nearby spring. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_0_3 
TEXT: Did you know, its flowers give off a relaxing fragrance. The stronger its aroma, the healthier the Roselia is, and judging by the aroma these are VERY healthy Roselia! 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_0_4 
TEXT: However sweet smelling, do be careful when encountering this Pokémon. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_0_5 
TEXT: The thorns on its head contain a vicious poison and can shoot them as projectiles at any opponent that tries to steal the flowers on its arms. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_0_6 
TEXT: Since this many Roselia appearing at once is quite a rare occurrence, would you mind assisting me with some research? 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_1_0 
TEXT: Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%! 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_1_1 
TEXT: While you were out smelling the Roselia, I wanted to be sure I had the most updated information about this Pokémon to share with you. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_1_2 
TEXT: Even a professor like myself reviews Pokédex information on a regular basis. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_1_3 
TEXT: Roselia, the Thorn Pokémon evolves from Budew, the Bud Pokémon. Budew is sensitive to changes in temperature, the bud is said to bloom when it feels the sun's warm touch. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_1_4 
TEXT: It also shares the same typing as Roselia, both are Grass- and Poision-type. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_1_5 
TEXT: I still need a bit more research on Roselia if you wouldn’t mind assisting me, in my review of the Pokédex I remembered something exciting about this Pokémon and want to see it for myself! 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_0 
TEXT: Wow… could you imagine if it was Muk appearing instead of Roselia? 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_1 
TEXT: A big group all gathered in the sun… that would smell AWFUL… 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_2 
TEXT: Oh! Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%, glad to see you’re back. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_3 
TEXT: I found that interesting bit of information I wanted to share with you. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_4 
TEXT: According to the Pokédex, Roselia that drink nutritionally rich springwater are said to reveal rare coloration when they bloom. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_5 
TEXT: Isn’t that fascinating? Have you seen anything like that while you have been out completing research? 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_6 
TEXT: If so, you are a very lucky Trainer! 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_7 
TEXT: Now that you are back, I’d like you to evolve one of your Roselia with the Sinnoh Stone I gave you. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_2_8 
TEXT: I’m excited to see the final evolution of this Grass- and Poision-type family of Pokémon! 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_0 
TEXT: Great work, Trainer! Your Roselia has evolved into the Bouquet Pokémon, Roserade! 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_1 
TEXT: With the movements of a dancer, it strikes with whips that are densely lined with poison thorns. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_2 
TEXT: Noted: Use caution when dancing with Roserade. If you examine the Pokémon closely, you can see there are differences between each hand. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_3 
TEXT: Each of its hands contains different toxins. The poison in its right hand is quick acting. The poison in its left hand is slow acting. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_4 
TEXT: What an amazing Pokémon, don’t you agree? 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_5 
TEXT: Thank you for all your help today, I really appreciate you helping me document this situation so we can keep learning more and more about the Pokémon in the world around us. 

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_roset_3_6 
TEXT: Until next time, let’s GO!
