Massive Data Mine Hints at Many New Events

Trainers! A massive data mine released today by Poke Miners hints a summer full of new events, Safari Zone avatar items, QOL updates, and much, much more! Let’s take a closer look at what all was found.

Please keep in mind, NONE of this information has been confirmed by Niantic, any and all events reported in this data mine can be changed and/or completely removed at any time. Take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement about them is made.

Community Day Voting

The text for THREE Community Day’s voting tasks was uncovered. Perhaps the most interesting tidbit to come from it is that they each cover two months, not one. Could this mean we will start seeing a Community Day every two months instead of every month? Only time will tell.

Gastly, Sandshrew, Squirtle, and Weedle are the choices outlined here, and from a personal standpoint, there is only one viable choice, Weedle. Why? BEEDRILL ALL DAY!

"Vote for Gastly Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Sandshrew Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Squirtle Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Weedle Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

Caterpie, Charmander, Grimer, and Porygon are outlined as the choices here. Without knowing what moves they would get, our first choice would be Porygon.

"Vote for Caterpie Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Charmander Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Grimer Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Porygon Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

Bulbasaur, Exeggcute, Magikarp, and Starly would be the choices here, again, without knowing moves, our first choice would be Starly.

"Vote for Bulbasaur Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"
"Vote for Exeggcute Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Magikarp Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Vote for Starly Community Day! Catch {0} Pokémon"

"Investigating Illusions (2/4)"

"Investigating Illusions (3/4)"

"Investigating Illusions (4/4)"
"Good to see you again, %PLAYERNAME%. Have you noticed an increased number of Abra in the area?"

"Yes, so did I. I originally thought this strange phenomenon was happening due to Abra’s ability to teleport."

"When Abra decides to teleport randomly, it creates the illusion that it’s made copies of itself."

"However, what’s happening right now really does seem to be a large number of Abra appearing in the wild! Let’s research more about Abra and see what we can discover about the Psi Pokémon!"

"Fantastic work, %PLAYERNAME%! Are you having difficulty catching Abra you encounter?"

"It’s said that you must clear your mind if you want to catch an Abra."

"Or maybe you could ask your buddy for some catching assistance!"

"I’ve got a few more things about Abra that I could use your help researching. How about you give me a hand, and I’ll see if I can find a nice treat for your buddy?"

"I’m sure your buddy appreciates that delicious Poffin! I’m more of a Pinap Berry man myself."

"While researching Abra, I read that it can sense danger and maintains a telepathic radar even while it’s sleeping! What amazing abilities!"

"Why don’t you keep researching? As a token of my thanks, I’ll give you one of the Rocket Radars I’ve developed."

"While it won’t give you Abra’s ability to sense danger while sleeping, it will help you track down any trouble the Team GO Rocket Leaders are stirring up."

"Thank you again, %PLAYERNAME%, for all your help today. It was incredible researching Abra with you."

"We learned so much about this Psychic-type Pokémon. Rumor has it that some lucky Trainers even encountered Shiny Abra in the wild!"

"Pokémon are truly amazing creatures. There’s always something to discover."

"Until next time, %PLAYERNAME%!"


A somewhat generic quest for Abra Community Day

"Catch {0} Abra"


A new dialogue for Rocket Research was found for a Team GO Rocket Special Research entitled, “Time to Train”, possibly for April?
"Time to Train"

"Great to see you again, %PLAYERNAME%. You’ve done such an amazing job with every challenge I’ve given you."

"Congrats on coming so far as a Trainer! You constantly impress me with your skills."

"But there are so many aspects to Pokémon training! I think it’s time to switch things up. I spoke with Spark, and he thought it would be good for you to focus some more on taking care of Pokémon Eggs."

"Why not take a walk with your buddy Pokémon after placing some Eggs into Incubators?"

"And be sure to rescue Shadow Pokémon from any Team GO Rocket members you encounter, too. Those Pokémon still need our help!"

"Wonderful work, %PLAYERNAME%. While you were busy, I met up with Blanche to discuss our research on recent developments with Shadow Pokémon."

"I had observed that Team GO Rocket somehow seemed to be making Shadow Pokémon deal more damage with their attacks, though they also seem to take more damage in return now. My observations line up with Blanche’s research."

"Both of us are concerned that despite our best efforts to push Team GO Rocket back, they’re still gaining ground and putting more and more Pokémon in danger."

"While Blanche and I continue to investigate, can we depend on you to take down some more Grunts to slow Team GO Rocket down?"

"I’m also going to assign you some tasks to test you as a Trainer. Battling Grunts alone won’t keep your skills as sharp as they need to be to continue standing up to Team GO Rocket’s leaders."

"Thanks for taking on those Grunts, %PLAYERNAME%."

"I was working with Candela to figure out what challenges we could give you to help you prepare for battles with other Trainers and in the GO Battle League. Those skills carry over to doing battle with the Team GO Rocket Leaders, after all!"

"Candela was very excited to find ways to keep you on your toes! "

"Could you take on these challenges as part of your ongoing training?"

"You’ve done the team leaders proud, %PLAYERNAME%!"

"You took on those challenges like the skilled Trainer you are."

"Great work. Now it’s time to continue the battle against Team GO Rocket."

"Your efforts to rescue and purify Shadow Pokémon have certainly not gone unnoticed."

"I’ll be sure to share any new findings about Team GO Rocket’s continued invasion as soon as they crop up, but right now, we should keep up the pressure on the Team GO Rocket Leaders. Good luck, %PLAYERNAME%."

"Taking on the Team GO Rocket Leaders is no easy task. They have proven to be difficult opponents for even the most accomplished Trainers."

"One interesting thing to note is that I’ve heard reports of Trainers rescuing Shiny Shadow Pokémon from the Team GO Rocket Leaders."

"This only further supports my suspicions that Team GO Rocket is gathering large numbers of Pokémon if they’ve been able to find Shiny ones to turn into Shadow Pokémon."

"There is definitely more that we need to learn about these foes and what their plans are."

"For now, I need you to focus. It’s time to take on Giovanni himself. You got this, %PLAYERNAME%."

"What an impressive victory, %PLAYERNAME%!"

"Giovanni is one of the toughest opponents out there, but your continued efforts to improve let you rise to the challenge! After this, I’m going to talk with the team leaders to discuss how we can further support you."

"You’ve been an amazing part of the team, and we wouldn’t be able to keep these villains at bay without your skills and dedication."

"But we can’t drop our guard while Team GO Rocket’s around, so keep honing your battle techniques. I suggest challenging your fellow Trainers to battles and testing yourself in the GO Battle League."

"I’ll be in touch again soon, but until then, let’s GO!"

"Time to Train"

"I’ve dedicated my life to studying the behaviors and migration patterns of hundreds of unique species of Pokémon. So, will you help me with my research?"
