Check out the storyline below.
Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%! I’m really glad to see you.
I’ve been dealing with some strange power outages in my mobile lab and wanted to investigate what could be causing them.
It didn’t take me long to find the cause. Seems as though a group of Electabuzz decided that the mobile lab’s electricity would make an excellent snack.
Electabuzz seem to be appearing in higher numbers, which could lead to more outages.
Do you think you could catch some of these Pokémon?
The research would be valuable, and I’d be grateful to have my power restored!
Welcome back, Trainer.
Thanks for the assistance—I really appreciate it! While you were out catching Electabuzz, I did some research on this Pokémon’s Evolutionary line.
Did you know that Electabuzz evolves from Elekid?
A weak electric current flows between Elekid’s horns. Be careful, Trainer! Sticking a hand between its horns will shock you!
Hmm… I wonder whether Spark has tried that with his Buddy Pokémon…
Anyway, let’s keep researching these Electabuzz and make sure they aren’t snacking on any electricity meant for other uses!
Great work, %PLAYERNAME%. I think we have enough data on Electabuzz.
Also known as the Electric Pokémon, it loves to feed on strong electricity. That explains why so many Electabuzz were attracted to my mobile lab.
Electricity runs across the surface of Electabuzz’s body. In darkness, its entire body glows a whitish blue.
Simply amazing! Let’s continue our research. Go ahead and use a Sinnoh Stone to evolve Electabuzz into Electivire!
I can’t wait to see what electrifying facts we’ll learn about that Evolution!
I just don’t ever know whether they find my jokes funny… Should I take a comedy class?
OH! I didn’t see you there, %PLAYERNAME%. I see you’ve evolved your Electabuzz into Electivire like I asked. Thank you!
According to the Pokédex, as Electivire’s electric charge amplifies, blue sparks begin to crackle between its horns.
When in battle, Electivire pushes the tips of its two tails against its foe, then lets loose with over 20,000 volts of power. I guess you could say its opponent is in for a shock!
Be careful with this Pokémon when battling with it—that’s a lot of power you’re dealing with!
With the lights back on in the mobile lab, I’m going to head back and wrap up some other projects.
Thank you again for all your help, and until next time, let’s GO!
The Electric for Electabuzz Special Research goes live on Sunday, November 15, 2020, from 11 AM to 5 PM local time and one must complete the given tasks to receive the special bonuses. The list will be updated when the event goes live, so stay tuned.
