Pokémon GO - Willow Report: Strange Scraps

Niantic has posted another Pokémon GO - Willow Report and this time it features Team GO Rocket and they need players to figure out what is going on.

Willow Report: Strange Scraps

Trainers, We’ve gotten word from Professor Willow that the team leaders have found some eyebrow-raising scraps of paper while training with their buddies for the Pokémon GO Fest weekly challenges. He’s shared this log with us because the scraps seem to be related to Team GO Rocket, and he needs your help to figure out what they can possibly mean. We’ve prepared his report for you below and will continue to update it as he shares more of his findings.

Date: 6/30/20 - Subject: [Willow Report] Moonlit scraps

Blanche had left recently to do some research on sun- and moon-related Pokémon that were appearing during the solstice. Upon returning from a research excursion to study Clefairy, Blanche carefully placed scraps of paper on my desk.

“Something’s up,” Blanche muttered. Looking at the “R” logo on the paper, I knew that whatever it was, it wasn’t good. Blanche brought up the dark object that Trainers noticed in the background of a recent Clefairy image, surmising that these might somehow be related. The Team Mystic leader also mentioned that in the area where this image was taken, they saw some Team GO Rocket Grunts who were acting more suspicious than usual. This will require further investigation.

—Professor Willow

Date: 7/2/20 - Subject: [Willow Report] Sunny with a chance of scraps

Image

Image

After a day passed without any further clues, Spark came to my lab. He showed me two pieces of paper that depicted Team GO Rocket figures.

Spark said that he found the scraps about a week ago. When I asked him why it took so long for him to come forward with them, he simply responded, “I was out by the grass, hanging out with all the Bug-type Pokémon and looking for a Shiny Weedle, and I forgot I had them. Are they important?”

I gave him a weary look and told him that Blanche had brought in similar scraps of paper and that they’d also seen some Grunts acting suspiciously in the area. This seemed to have sparked a memory in the Team Instinct leader’s mind—while he was looking for the Shiny Weedle, he noticed some Grunts nearby pointing up at the sky. Maybe they were looking at the same object that was floating in the sky in the Clefairy image? Perhaps these occurrences are all connected somehow. This is quite peculiar...

Limited tests incoming: daily guaranteed Pokémon encounters and Daily Free Boxes in the shop

Trainers, In our continued efforts to adapt Pokémon GO’s gameplay to individual settings, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be testing two features: daily guaranteed Pokémon encounters and Daily Free Boxes.

Daily guaranteed Pokémon encounters
A limited group of Trainers will soon get a special visit from Professor Willow! If you’re part of this test, he’ll tell you that he’s been working on a special kind of Incense. This Incense won’t appear in your Item Bag, but it’ll be active after Professor Willow gives it to you, attracting a Pokémon once a day that’ll appear only for you. Be sure to check the game every day to see what Pokémon will appear!

Daily Free Boxes in the shop
Soon, a small number of Trainers will be able to receive a free box of items daily in the shop! If you’re part of this test, the Shop button will display a notification when a Daily Free Box is available. To get your Daily Free Box, simply go to the shop and claim the box in the Free section. The box will contain different items each time, so be sure to claim your Daily Free Box every day to see what items you get!

We will be rolling these features out over the coming months to more Trainers, so keep an eye out for updates.
