Decoding Porygon

Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%! It’s great to see you again! I’m always grateful to have a helping hand with my research.

Speaking of research, have you heard of Porygon, the Virtual Pokémon?

Well, I’m not entirely sure why, but Porygon have been appearing more frequently in the area as of late!

I’d like to take this opportunity to learn more about this odd Pokémon. How about it, Trainer? Will you go out and catch some Porygon for me?

Fantastic work, %PLAYERNAME%!

I was able to review the data you collected, and I discovered that Porygon is made entirely of programming code!

Other reports I dug up mention that it was created by a group of scientists using state-of-the-art technology. Can you believe it? A man-made Pokémon!

Porygon have made a name for themselves by protecting cyberspace from suspicious activity! For something artificial, they sure do seem caring.

Maybe I should keep a Porygon around in case Team GO Rocket tries a digital take-over…

Well, in the meantime, I’d like to learn more about Porygon’s evolved form, Porygon2.

I have a hunch that you’ll need to use an Upgrade to evolve Porygon. Let’s get back out there and see if we can’t find one!

Excellent work, %PLAYERNAME%!

Thanks to your efforts, I’ve realized just how different Porygon2 is from Porygon.

According to my findings, further research and the implementation of artificial intelligence into its code allowed Porygon2 to develop the ability to learn independent of its programming.

The power of science is just astounding, isn’t it?

These reports also mention that Porygon2 was upgraded to enable extraterrestrial exploration and planetary development, though it has yet to accomplish much.

I wonder what this means for Porygon’s final Evolution, Porygon-Z?

For your next batch of research, I want you to evolve Porygon2 into Porygon-Z using a Sinnoh Stone. Good luck out there, Trainer!

Congrats on evolving your Porygon2 into a Porygon-Z, %PLAYERNAME%!

I’ve uncovered some notes about this Pokémon that I thought you’d find interesting.

According to reports, an update was added to Porygon-Z’s programming that was supposed to allow it to move between dimensions. But the upgrade also caused Porygon-Z to become unstable, and it began behaving erratically.

Because the update caused instability, academics can’t seem to agree on whether Porygon-Z should be considered a true Evolution of Porygon2.

It’s going to take a bit of time to file away all this research, but I’m thrilled we were able to learn more about Porygon and its Evolutions!

Your hard work is always appreciated, %PLAYERNAME%, and I’ll be in touch as soon as I’m in need of another inquisitive eye!

Until then, let’s GO!
