Pokemon Go Gritty and Glacial Special Research Storyline

Good morning, %PLAYERNAME%! There sure seems to be a surplus of Sandshrew around today, don’t you think?

I’m especially surprised to see both Sandshrew and Alolan Sandshrew appearing at once!

These two forms of Sandshrew usually prefer vastly different climates. Sandshrew usually make their homes in deserts and arid zones, where rain doesn’t fall.

Alolan Sandshrew, on the other hand, are typically found in snowy mountains. What an uncommon sight for them to both be here together!

How about you spend some time with them and see what they’re up to, %PLAYERNAME%?

Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%! That’s an impressive number of Sandshrew you have in tow. I’d love to take a closer look at them – especially their shells.

Did you know that there’s a traditional competition in Alolan festivals where Trainers slide Alolan Sandshrew across ice as far as possible?

How must the Sandshrew feel about that, I wonder!

The Sandshrew first found in the Kanto region are quite fascinating in their own right.

When their shells are wrinkled from moisture, they head for volcanoes and lie flat on a spot with a lot of geothermal heat to dry themselves out.

It’s truly incredible how different geography and climates can influence Pokémon.

I’d love to get an even closer look at both of these forms of Sandshrew. What do you say, %PLAYERNAME%? Let’s get back out there!

You never disappoint, %PLAYERNAME%! Seeing all the Sandshrew together, don’t they look like a tough bunch?

Sandshrew evolve into Sandslash, another hardy Pokémon. Alolan Sandslash use their large, hooked claws to cut paths through deep snow as they run.

On snowy mountains, these Sandslash are faster than any other Pokémon.

But Sandslash first found in Kanto are tough, too! They climb trees by hooking on with their sharp claws.

They even share the Berries they gather by dropping them down to Sandshrew waiting on the ground. If only I could gather Berries so easily…

Try and evolve Sandshrew to Sandslash for yourself, %PLAYERNAME%!

Great work, %PLAYERNAME%. Your new Sandslash are an impressive sight – befitting an impressive Trainer such as yourself!

Up close, you can really appreciate the differences in the spikes of these Sandslash.

The drier the area Sandslash lives in, the harder and smoother their spikes feel.

Meanwhile, Alolan Sandslash have beautiful icy spikes that glisten in the light of dawn.

Thanks for helping me look into these Sandshrew today, %PLAYERNAME%.

I’ll keep studying Sandshrew and Sandslash in hopes of discovering more differences and similarities between them!

And I’ll be sure to get in touch the next time I need a helping hand. Something tells me it won’t be long!

Until next time, let’s GO!
