Grass and Gratitude Shaymin Research Quest Storyline

Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%!

I’m so glad you’re here. Get this – there’ve been sightings of Shaymin in the area!

Well, it might be more accurate to say “potential sightings,” as I’ve yet to verify the information.

Shaymin lives in common flower patches but is rarely noticed. It’s often mistaken for a flowering plant when curled up – what unique behavior for a Mythical Pokémon!

I can’t help but wonder if we’d know more about Shaymin if only we were a little more observant.

Let’s put that theory to the test and see what we can learn taking a good look around the area, shall we?

How did it go, %PLAYERNAME%? Any chance you ran into Shaymin while you were out?

No? Well, that’s OK! I see you got some good snapshots of other Pokémon in the meantime.

Hmm… That gets me thinking. As you might know, the flowers all over Shaymin burst into bloom if it’s lovingly hugged and senses gratitude.

I hypothesize that if we take the time to share some thankfulness, we’ll attract Shaymin’s attention.

Not that we need any excuse to celebrate Pokémon, I say! In fact, how about we appreciate them in photo form with some more snapshots, %PLAYERNAME%?

Your snapshots look great, %PLAYERNAME%! You’ve got a real knack for catching Pokémon – both in Poké Balls and on camera!

And y’know what else you’ve got a knack for? Pokémon battles!

I’m sure you already know that one of the ways you can keep your team in tip-top shape is by powering up your Pokémon. Why don’t you do that and come see me when you’re done?

Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%!

I was just thinking about Shaymin again. One of the many things that makes Shaymin so special is that it has two known forms.

I refer, of course, to its Land Forme and Sky Forme. Land Forme Shaymin is Grass-type, but when it turns into Sky Forme Shaymin, it becomes Grass- and Flying-type.

Some say that it transforms when it takes in the scent of a rare flower.

Perhaps you’re wondering what would happen if a human took a whiff. A researcher from long ago tried just that, but alas, his body remained unchanged.

Ah well. Not all hypotheses hold water. That’s just part of the scientific process!

And speaking of learning, why don’t you spend some time with other Grass-type Pokémon and Flying-type Pokémon? Maybe they’ll inspire you to make some hypotheses of your own!

Excellent work, %PLAYERNAME%. Now you’ve got even more Pokémon to bring along on your journey!

In the spirit of Shaymin being the Gratitude Pokémon, let’s show some gratitude to our old and newfound friends alike.

How about taking some snapshots with your Pokémon or feeding them some tasty Berries? I know my beloved Meltan always enjoys a snack – maybe your Pokémon are the same!

Your Pokémon are positively glowing, %PLAYERNAME%! I’m sure they appreciated that extra quality time with you.

The more time I spend with Pokémon, the more I appreciate all their unique qualities.

For example, Torchic is oh-so-cuddly. It has fire burning inside it, so hugging it is lovely and warm. Then there’s Mudkip, who contains amazing power – it can crush rocks bigger than itself.

I could also wax poetic about Treecko, whose feet are covered by countless tiny spikes, enabling it to walk on walls and ceilings.

And that’s just a scant three Pokémon! I’d love to hear your observations too, %PLAYERNAME%. What unique Pokémon and traits can you observe?

%PLAYERNAME%! Yay – it’s Shaymin!

It looks happy – I daresay even grateful – to be in the care of an exemplary Trainer like you!

And as long as we’re on the subject, I want you to know I’m incredibly thankful you helped me with my research.

I know it’s not always easy, but I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your contributions to my studies.

Studies that never end, I might add. Haha. So rest up, and I’ll be in contact again soon.

Let’s GO…with gratitude!

Good luck on your journey Trainers, and let’s catch ’em all.
