Datamining Report: GO Fest Finale Special research texts hint at Solgaleo and Lunala

Posted in

Hello Trainers! Pokémon some goodies have been pushed to the game by Niantic, including a bunch of stuff for the GO Fest Finale event, strong hints that Solagelo and Lunana are coming, some updates for Campfire, and more

Please read through all of this with a grain of salt – we often post data mining reports which end up taking months to release, and we don’t want our readers to be 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 of this information is publicly provided by the PokéMiners and includes some of my commentaries.

As the Miners found in their Campfire APK breakdown trainers will have the ability to take pictures of Pokémon where they caught them and then share them to campfire. It sounds like a fun way to post Pokémon Nests to Campfire.

Rhi & Professor Willow Texts

The research is set up a bit weird, it looks like the overall research is called A Radiant Reunion, with a smaller two-part Willow’s Return at the beginning? I could be wrong there, but that’s my guess.  Take that for what it’s worth.

Research 1 – Part 1 (Willow’s Return 1 of 2? A Radiant Reunion 1 of 6?)

RESOURCE ID: sr_gofest2022_f1
TEXT: Willow’s Return

RESOURCE ID: sr_gofest2022_f1_1
TEXT: Willow’s Return (1/2)

RESOURCE ID: sr_gofest2022_f2
TEXT: A Radiant Reunion (Part 1)
RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_1
TEXT: Pokémon Trainer! I have a positive update to share.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_2
TEXT: After analyzing the data we collected from the Ultra Wormholes, I have located—and retrieved—Professor Willow from Ultra Space.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_3
TEXT: His return would not have been possible without your exhaustive efforts.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_4
TEXT: I do not doubt you are eager to speak with him, but he requires rest before your reunion.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_5
TEXT: Following that, I would appreciate your assistance with another matter.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_6
TEXT: UB-01 Symbiont and UB-02 Beauty—that is, Nihilego and Pheromosa—have once again returned to this world.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_7
TEXT: I need not emphasize what dangers they pose.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_8
TEXT: Additionally, new signals indicate that other Ultra Beasts may soon follow.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_1_9
TEXT: But first, your professor. You and I can reconvene after you two have spoken.

Rhi was able to bring Willow back!

Professor Willow
RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_2_1
TEXT: ... ... ...
%PLAYERNAME%? Is...that you?
How long has it been? It’s good to see you. I’ve had the most amazing adventure!

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_2_2
TEXT: There I was, pondering the mysteries of the island guardians—and moping a little at my misfortune, I must admit—when a glowing portal appeared out of thin air!

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_2_3
TEXT: I couldn’t help wondering what was on the other side. My curiosity ignited, I weighed the risks, grabbed my gear, and jumped right in!

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_2_4
TEXT: The portal led to a completely different dimension—one traversed by unimaginably strange creatures...

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_1_2_5
TEXT: I must tell you all about it! *yawn* But before I do, I could use a little nap. I promise I’ll spare no detail after I’ve slept...a few...

Apparently, an ultra wormhole appeared near Professor Willow, and his experience of missing the Island Guardians prompted a YOLO moment and he grabbed his stuff and leapt in.  Can’t say I blame him to be honest. Also, he needs a nap. Again, can’t say I blame him on that one either.

Research 1 – Part 2 (Willow’s Return 1 of 2? A Radiant Reunion 2 of 6?)

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_1
TEXT: Welcome back, Pokémon Trainer. I hope you had a pleasant reunion with your professor. Has he fallen asleep? Understandable.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_2
TEXT: You and I can turn our attention to the Ultra Beasts while he recuperates.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_3
TEXT: I have confirmed the reappearance of UB-02 Absorption, Buzzwole.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_4
TEXT: Buzzwole’s propensity for displaying its robust musculature remains a mystery—is it mere self-satisfaction or some kind of threat?

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_5
TEXT: Its sturdy physique stands in contrast to Pheromosa’s lithe frame.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_6
TEXT: Though neither should be underestimated.

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_7
TEXT: Since we cannot predict their behavior, I propose further observation. Have you all your necessary supplies?

RESOURCE ID: gofest2022_finale_2_1_8
TEXT: If you and your Pokémon are ready, then we can begin.

Buzzwole is here!

Research 2  (A Radiant Reunion 3 of 6?)

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_2_2_1
TEXT: A brilliant display, Pokémon Trainer. Before we continue, I have something for you.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_2_2_2
TEXT: Here—a small supply of Beast Balls.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_2_2_3
TEXT: Excuse me if I am repeating myself, but allow me a brief explanation.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_2_2_4
TEXT: Beast Balls were developed specifically to capture Ultra Beasts. Your assistance enabled me to fabricate them—I wish to help you as you have helped me.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_2_2_5
TEXT: I trust you will know the right time to use them. Now, let us continue our work.

Beast balls!

Research 3  – Part 1 (A Radiant Reunion 4 of 6?)

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_1_1
TEXT: Pokémon Trainer—I feel we are being watched. Could it be Team GO Rocket?

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_1_2
TEXT: If they have been observing us, then do you believe they have plans that involve the Ultra Beasts?

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_1_3
TEXT: This is a possibility we cannot ignore.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_1_4
TEXT: If only I could battle like you do... Until then, I must ask again for your aid.

It wouldn’t be a Pokémon Go Fest without Team Go Rocket trying to muck things up.

Research 3  – Part 2 (A Radiant Reunion 5 of 6?)

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_2_1
TEXT: Thank you for dispersing Team GO Rocket, Pokémon Trainer.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_2_2
TEXT: I am relieved to know that they have been removed from the equation.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_2_3
TEXT: Your strength is further appreciated given this world’s most recent arrival—UB-03 Lighting. Xurkitree.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_2_4
TEXT: It has been known to raid power plants, presumably to energize itself with electricity.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_2_5
TEXT: It would be disastrous if Xurkitree depleted the power in this area.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_3_2_6
TEXT: Let us do what we can to prevent this catastrophe.

Research 4 – (A Radiant Reunion 6 of 6?)

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_1
TEXT: *yawn*
Oh, %PLAYERNAME%. Sorry I dozed off on you there—I hardly slept while I was away. Did anything interesting happen while I was gone?

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_2
TEXT: ... ... ...
Ultra Wormholes?
Ultra Beasts?

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_3
TEXT: Incredible! I can always count on you to unearth amazing things. You even helped bring me home!

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_4
TEXT: In that space, there were times when my memories would blur together—but I swear I could feel the light of our world, and everything would rush back.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_5
TEXT: No, it was more than a feeling. It was like I was surrounded by a protective presence—warm like the sun and calm like the moon.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_6
TEXT: Even so, I don’t know how I would have returned if you and your new friend hadn’t intervened.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_7
TEXT: I’m always thankful for you, but this time, you really saved me.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_8
TEXT: Why, I could just hug you, %PLAYERNAME%!

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_9
TEXT: Wait. Is there something in the sky? I’d investigate myself, but... *yawn* I suddenly feel like I lost a staring contest with a Hypno.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_1_10
TEXT: You and your Pokémon should go check it out. I’ll be here. Just give me a...minute...

“It was like I was surrounded by a protective presence—warm like the sun and calm like the moon.” Sounds to me like Lunala and Solgaleo are coming, likely after the GO Fest Finale event sometime.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_1
TEXT: Pokémon Trainer, I saw you were able to speak with the professor. Is he in good health?

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_2
TEXT: He felt something akin to light of the sun and moon, did he?

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_3
TEXT: Interesting.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_4
TEXT: The important thing is that you and your Willow have been reunited. Endless musing is my proclivity, not yours.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_5
TEXT: Before we redirect our attention to the Ultra Beasts, I wish to take this opportunity to express what an excellent...erm...

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_6
TEXT: I had intended to call you my “research partner,” but that feels insufficient. You are more than an assistant—you are my confidant.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_7
TEXT: Such a sterile title hardly suits a person as dazzling as you.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_8
TEXT: So thank you, %PLAYERNAME%.
My partner...and my friend.

RESOURCE ID: gofest_2022_finale_4_2_9
TEXT: I look forward to whatever adventures await us next.

Looks like Rhi’s grown fond of you, I’m sure we’ll see them again soon enough.

That’s all for now trainers, stay safe out there!
