Professor Willow dialogue

First part:

Welcome to GO Fest 2019, TRAINER! I'm glad you're here.

I discovered something fascinating during my research, and I need your help. I've come across what I believe to be a rare Pokémon deep in slumber.

We have our work cut out for us, TRAINER. I think this adventure is going to call for some resources and even the help of friends.

Could you collect some supplies? Meanwhile, I'll see if I can find anything about this Pokémon in any of my texts.

Second part:

Good work, TRAINER. I am sure the resources you've earned will be crucial.

I had some success in my research, as well. I came across an ancient text containing the story of a Mythical Pokémon that grants wishes.

I'm still researching the best way to awaken this Pokémon, but I keep hearing reports of other Pokémon in the area showing signs of distress.

Could I ask you to investigate these reports?

Third part:

Well done, TRAINER! I knew I could count on you. You know, something interesting came up when I reviewed your results.

Many of the Pokémon you encountered seem to have strayed from their habitats.

I'd like you to help them get back to their proper habitats, as I'm sure this will soothe them and make them more comfortable. This should be a breeze for an accomplished TRAINER like you!

As you return the Pokémon to their proper habitats, be sure to snap pictures to help document this unusual situation.

Fourth part:

Wonderful work, TRAINER! You're certainly getting the hang of that camera! Did you notice anything strange while taking photos of Pokémon in their habitats?

Apparently there's an unusual phenomenon where Pokémon leap out in an attempt to appear in your photos. I've heard Spark refer to it as a "photobomb."

I'm eternally amused—and amazed—by the things we learn about Pokémon every day. That said, I did notice a connection.

These Pokémon all seem to have something in common—music! I have a hunch that music may be the key to awakening our slumbering Pokémon.

What do you think, TRAINER? Shall we set the stage and see if some beautiful music is the answer to this perplexing situation?

Fifth part:

That's it! The pure melody created by your musical Pokémon has awakened the Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon Jirachi!

The ancient text was right—this Mythical Pokémon could only be awakened from its thousand-year slumber by a song of purity. The text also says that when Jirachi awakens, it grants wishes!

Now that we've done the work of waking Jirachi up, I wonder what you and your fellow Trainers will wish for. I already know what my wish is going to be—I want you to enjoy this amazing experience!

It isn't every day that you get to join Trainers from all over the world in exploring a park with so many Pokémon in such diverse habitats—not to mention meeting a Mythical Pokémon!

I'm sure Jirachi was far from the last amazing discovery to be made, though. I'll no doubt be calling on your excellent research skills again in the future!
