A COLOSSAL DISCOVERY STORYLINE TEXT

Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%. Good to see you again. Your research inspired me to do some more research of my own, and I think I’ve come across something…groundbreaking.

I was investigating the digging patterns of Diglett, and I wound up heading deep into a cave. Inside, I came across some unusual markings carved heavily into the cavern walls.  At first, I thought them to be random, but then I realized the carvings formed four unique patterns, each consisting of seven circles. These patterns look incredibly familiar, and I think we need to take a closer look at some Pokémon in particular.

Can I count on you to help me research some Rock-type Pokémon? I have a hunch that this will lead us to our first clue.

Simply amazing! The pattern on the Regirock you caught matches perfectly with the first pattern of carvings on the cave walls. This leads me to believe we should move our investigation to Ice-type Pokémon. I wonder if we’ll find another Pokémon that will help us solve this puzzle.

I have one in mind, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself! I’m sure with the help of an accomplished Trainer such as yourself, we’ll be on our way to figuring this out in no time.

As expected, Regice clearly has similar markings to the second carving I found in the cave.

I remember an ancient legend that told a story about a Colossal Pokémon. It’s said that it made Pokémon that looked like itself from a special ice mountain, rocks, and magma.

Could it be these Pokémon these patterns originate from? This is starting to get exciting, isn’t it? If the first two Pokémon were Regirock and Regice…then there’s only one left that we must research further.

Excellent work. I believe we’re going in the right direction. This could only mean one thing, %PLAYERNAME%. We’re close to coming across the Legendary Pokémon Regigigas! According to legend, this Pokémon towed continents with rope.

Maybe it can help move my research lab next time it gets stuck. Hahaha! Anyway…I have a feeling that once you fully document these amazing creatures, you’ll make a colossal discovery of your own.

COLOSSAL EXCITEMENT

We can’t wait to see how A Colossal Discovery plays out. Indeed, the idea of paid events like this has sparked some controversy. “Is it worth it?” “Why are they doing this to F2P players?”, “Are they are using FOMO to make money!?”

These questions may not be answered today, or anytime soon. Only time will tell if these kinds of events will be successful or not. Let us know how your Colossal Discovery experience goes in the comments below, on Twitter, or on our Discord. Good luck, Trainers!
