Trainer! Thank goodness you made it.

I was ready for a fun-filled day of playing with Pokémon, but as you may have seen, the park has all sorts of unusual geological phenomena occurring!

We need to figure out what’s happening and set it right, so I'm asking for your help.

Now that you’re here, I need you to be part of my Elite Research team.

First things first—could you help survey the park and get some supplies?

Please complete the following research tasks.

2nd Part

Yowzers! As you may have noticed, the park has all sorts of unusual geological phenomena going on today!

I’m not sure what could have caused it—they just appeared out of nowhere...and they seem to be getting bigger and bigger!

Whatever is causing it, the local park habitat here is quite disrupted by all the changes.

The local Pokémon have become confused… It looks like they’re acting more aggressive and territorial!

Let's see if we can help out by catching some Pokémon to make the situation a bit more stable.

Please catch 10 Fire-, Steel-, Water-, Grass-, Rock-, or Ice-type Pokémon!
