  • Hey there, TRAINER! Quite an eventful few months we’ve had, eh?
  • How are things with Hoopa? You two seem to get along great from what I can tell.
  • I suspect its trust in you must have deepened after you protected it from Team GO Rocket.
  • While you and Hoopa have been out adventuring together, my research into the mystery surrounding Hoopa has taken some strange turns.
  • I was up late poring over my notes recently when I heard a knock at the door of my mobile lab. I certainly wasn’t expecting anyone, but I figured it would be rude not to answer.
  • As I approached the door, I heard something scurrying away, and when I opened it, I found nothing but a curious bottle at my feet.
  • There was a note attached. I’ve managed to decipher only part of it, but here’s what I’ve got so far.
  • “Offer sweets and dust you’ve found
  • So Hoopa’s form will be unbound
  • And in this form it shall remain
  • Until an offering is made again.”
  • Poetry isn’t exactly my forte, but it’s got a pleasant rhyme structure, I’d say!
  • The poem lines up with the fact that Hoopa has multiple forms: Hoopa Confined and Hoopa Unbound.
  • What’s more, I feel a sort of...mysterious power emanating from the bottle. The patterns on it seem reminiscent of Hoopa, don’t you think?
  • It’s all got me tremendously excited! We’ve been trying to learn more about Hoopa for a while now, and I have a feeling this may be the final piece of the puzzle.
  • Naturally, I’ll need your help to put it all together, TRAINER.
  • Can you see what you can learn in the field while I stay here to analyze the poem and bottle?
2nd Part

  • Thanks for your help, TRAINER!
  • I’ve been busy analyzing the poem and the bottle it came with—and I have something to share!
  • The poem seems to be providing hints as to how to change Hoopa’s form—and I believe this bottle is somehow involved in that process.
  • With that said, the bottle’s power appears to be dormant. But with more research, I’m confident we can find a way to harness it and change Hoopa’s form!
  • After all we’ve overcome to get this far, I have no doubt the two of us can crack this together.
  • Will you help me conduct some more research so we can witness Hoopa’s other form?
3rd Part
Professor Willow icon.png
  • Eureka! TRAINER, I’ve just had a massive breakthrough.
  • Remember this part of the poem?
  • “Offer sweets and dust you’ve found
  • So Hoopa’s form will be unbound”
  • I believe the poem is telling us to use Hoopa Candy and Stardust to change Hoopa’s form!
  • You can get Stardust by catching Pokémon and battling in raids, but you can earn Hoopa Candy only by adventuring with Hoopa as your buddy.
  • Luckily, I’ve managed to convert the bottle’s power into Hoopa Candy. Once you’ve gathered everything you need, you’ll be able to change your Hoopa Confined into Hoopa Unbound.
  • There’s another bit of the poem that I think is relevant here, too.
  • "And in this form it shall remain
  • Until an offering is made again.”
  • It sounds like you’ll also need Hoopa Candy and Stardust to change Hoopa Unbound back into Hoopa Confined—but something tells me you won’t need quite as much.
  • Of course, this is all just a theory.
  • We’ll have to test it before reaching any proper conclusions!
  • Hoopa Unbound is said to be tremendously powerful—but I think you can handle it, Trainer.
  • It’s been a long adventure with Hoopa, but I think we’ve finally reached the end.
  • It’s almost bittersweet, don’t you think? But fret not—I’m sure more discoveries await!
  • Let’s keep adventuring through this world full of mysteries—you, me, and Hoopa!
