Datamining Report: Is Pokémon Fusing Coming to Pokémon GO?

Attention, Pokémon Trainers! The latest data mining reports are in and I don’t think it’s overselling it to say that what’s been found could be game-changing as texts referencing Pokémon fusing have been found, including direct references to Dawnwings Necrozma and Duskmane Necrozma, Ice Rider Calyrex and Shadow Rider Calyrex, and Black Kyurem and White Kyrem. Data Miners have also found the texts for the Bellsprout Community Day special research, GO Fest Avatar items, and more!

💡 Disclaimer: You know the drill by now. 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.

The PokéMiners publicly provide all this information and this article includes some of my commentaries. Remember, while the PokéMiners have provided this information, always take these updates with a grain of salt. Some of these features might take a while to go live, or may never go live at all.

Report Highlights

  • Pokémon Fusing: Several new text entries that discuss fusing Pokémon.
  • Bellsprout Community Day: The texts for the Flower Pokémon Bellsprout’s Community Day.
  • New Avatar Items: Including Sun Crown, Moon Crown, GO Fest T-shirt, Burmy Earings

Pokémon Fusion

Necrozma, Pokémon GO Fest

I have to say this is the section of this article that I am most excited about. Fusing Pokémon is an exciting mechanic, and can lead to some very awesome looking Pokémon.

Fuse Button

RESOURCE ID: fusion_feature_name
TEXT: Fusion

RESOURCE ID: fusion_fuse_button
TEXT: Fuse

RESOURCE ID: fusion_ftue_description
TEXT: This Pokémon can fuse with {0} or {1}.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_description
TEXT: This Pokémon can fuse with {0} to become {1}, or {2} to become {3}.

There will be a fuse button, judging from the last two entries above it’s likely as an option on Pokémon that can be fused. 

Pokémon That Can Fuse

RESOURCE ID: fusion_description_calyrex
TEXT: This Pokémon can fuse with Glastrier to become Ice Rider Calyrex, or Spectrier to become Shadow Rider Calyrex.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_description_kyurem
TEXT: This Pokémon can fuse with Reshiram to become White Kyurem, or Zekrom to become Black Kyurem.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_description_necrozma
TEXT: This Pokémon can fuse with Solgaleo to become Duskmane Necrozma, or Lunala to become Dawnwing Necrozma.

Text entries for not only Necrozma and its fusion with Solgaleo or Lunala, but also Calyrex and Kyurem and their fusions

Lunar and Solar Fusion Energy

RESOURCE ID: fusion_resource_dawnwings_necrozma_name
TEXT: Lunar Fusion Energy

RESOURCE ID: necrozma_dawn_wings
TEXT: Dawn Wings Necrozma

RESOURCE ID: fusion_resource_duskmane_necrozma_name
TEXT: Solar Fusion Energy

RESOURCE ID: necrozma_dusk_mane
TEXT: Dusk Mane Necrozma
It looks like we’ll need to collect energy for the fusion target, rather than the overall fusion So Solar energy for Solgaleo and Lunar energy for Lunala rather than Necrozma energy to power either one. This will likely be a system very similar to the current Mega energy system.
The absence of any other energy type suggests that this will be released when Necrozma makes its debut.

Separating Fusions

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_button
TEXT: Separate

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_question
TEXT: Do you want to separate {0}?

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description
TEXT: This {0} will separate into {1} and {2}.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_complete
TEXT: {0} has separated from {1}.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_cost
TEXT: Pokémon can separate for no cost.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description_calyrex_icerider
TEXT: This Calyrex will unfuse into Glastrier and Calyrex.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description_calyrex_shadowrider
TEXT: This Calyrex will unfuse into Spectrier and Calyrex.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description_kyurem_black
TEXT: This Kyurem will unfuse into Zekrom and Kyurem.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description_kyurem_white
TEXT: This Kyurem will unfuse into Reshiram and Kyurem.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description_necrozma_dawnwings
TEXT: This Necrozma will unfuse into Necrozma and Lunala.

RESOURCE ID: fusion_unfuse_description_necrozma_duskmane
TEXT: This Necrozma will unfuse into Necrozma and Solgaleo.

Texts for separating fusions. Good news it appears that separating fusions will be free. These texts also suggest that these fusions will be permanent and not time-limited like Mega and Primal evolutions.

Special Research Texts

I’m not going to dig into the texts too much, they’re all there if you want to read through them.

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_0_0
TEXT: Hello there, %PLAYERNAME%! Have you happened to do any exploring today?

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_0_1
TEXT: It’s quite the sight, let me tell you! It’s lousy with Bellsprout out there!

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_0_2
TEXT: They tend to prefer hot and humid places, but right now they seem to be everywhere.

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_0_3
TEXT: And you know, there’s still plenty for us to learn about the Flower Pokémon. Would you be a pal and catch one for us to study?

Step 2

RESOURCE ID: quest_title_bellsprout_1
TEXT: All About Bellsprout (2/4)

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_1_0
TEXT: Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%. And what a great specimen you’ve brought!

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_1_1
TEXT: Did you know that despite their slender frames, they can move lightning fast to catch insects? One more reason to be glad we’re not bugs!

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_1_2
TEXT: But there’s more for us to learn about this fascinating Pokémon! Drop by again after you’ve evolved your Bellsprout into Weepinbell.

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_1_3
TEXT: I’ll leaf through my Weepinbell research notes so I’m ready for you when you get back!

Step 3

RESOURCE ID: quest_title_bellsprout_1 
TEXT: All About Bellsprout (3/4)

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_2_0
TEXT: Hey now, that’s got to be the Weepinbell of the ball! Let me take a closer look.

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_2_1
TEXT: Aha! You see that large hook on its rear end? Weepinbell tend to use that to hook themselves on tree branches when they sleep.

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_2_2
TEXT: In other words, if you see your Weepinbell yawning, find it a tree on the double!

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_2_3
TEXT: But there’s no time for us to be snoozing. How about you evolve Weepinbell into a Victreebel and bring it back here?

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_3_0

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_3_1
TEXT: These large, plant-like Pokémon live in huge colonies, deep within the jungle. No one who’s visited has returned to tell the tale. That’s sure foreboding!

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_3_2
TEXT: Although if I put my professor cap on and think about it, how do we know about the colonies unless someone DID make it back?

RESOURCE ID: quest_special_dialogue_bellsprout_3_3
TEXT: There’s something to ponder! In the meantime, thanks for letting me observe your Victreebel. I’m sure you’ll be fast friends in no time—just watch out for that prey-dissolving acid!

Parting Words

I think we can all agree that the fusing is the big deal in this report. I’ve been waiting for this to come out since Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem were released and I’m excited for this. Are we going to get fusing at GO Fest this year? They’ve announced Necrozma is coming for GO Fest so it stands to reason that now that we’re finding these texts its coming. What do you think? Let me know in the comments, or hit me up on X @ProfessorGlaw

Stay safe out there trainers.
