Ultra Beast Protection Efforts Research Storyline
I suspect you have already noticed, but Team GO Rocket seems to be assembling en masse again.
What shadowy schemes could those ruffians be plotting? They look to be glowering right at you.
Surely they couldn’t be thinking of absconding with the Ultra Beasts?
Or perhaps they’ve designs on Cosmoem. In its current state, I fear –
No. Anxious speculation will not avail us. Preventative measures must come first.
Could you use your battling skills to send some of these Grunts away?
Huh. I thought there were more Team GO Rocket Grunts around earlier…
Oh, %PLAYERNAME%, it’s you! I guess I’ve got you to thank for getting those goons out of here.
Rhi says they may be taking an interest in our otherworldly visitors, huh?
I’m inclined to think they’re right. Good thing you’re here to save the day!
Keep flushing Team GO Rocket out, %PLAYERNAME%. Try looking for their Leaders next.
I’m sure you and Rhi can track them down!
Brilliant work, %PLAYERNAME%. You’ve managed to defeat Team GO Rocket’s Leaders.
I knew your superlative skills would lead you to victory. And you had the chance to speak with Professor Willow, correct? What did he have to say?
I see… Though I am pleased Professor Willow has corroborated my theory, I continue to be concerned for the Ultra Beasts and Cosmoem.
I take solace in knowing that we have dispersed the majority of Team GO Rocket, if nothing else.
Now, the time has come to challenge the man who sits atop the organization: Giovanni.
So, you sent Giovanni home with his tail between his legs? Just another day in the life for you, huh, %PLAYERNAME%?
It’s no easy feat to put Team GO Rocket back in their place, but you rose to the challenge.
Great job! Now take some well-deserved rest with your Pokémon.
I’ll be in touch again soon!
