  • TRAINER, you’re not going to believe this!
  • Have you seen those Poké Ball–like Pokémon rolling about?
  • This all begs the question: why are Hisuian Voltorb appearing now after being absent for so long? Did they somehow travel to the present from the Sinnoh region of the past?
  • I have a theory that when Team GO Rocket broke open the mysterious door, it somehow caused these Hisuian Voltorb to appear in our time.
  • Now why am I suddenly reminded of Celebi, the Time Travel Pokémon...
  • Anyway, that’s all I’ve got! Kind of unbelievable, isn’t it?
  • I’m going to do some more digging on my end, and I’d love your help researching these bygone Pokémon out in the field!
  • Let’s investigate Hisuian Voltorb together.
  • They look an awful lot like Voltorb—a Pokémon native to the Kanto region, among others—but I’ve never seen any Voltorb quite like these.
  • I reached out to everyone I could think of and pored over all the research documents I could get my hands on, but get this: nothing in modern scholarship mentions this Pokémon!
  • However, I did eventually find something. Did you know that the Sinnoh region used to be known as the Hisui region?
  • Well, I found historical documentation of an old-fashioned Poké Ball developed long ago in the Hisui region, and I realized it greatly resembles this mysterious Pokémon. Or could it be the other way around?
  • Which came first: the Poké Ball or the Pokémon? Who knows!
  • Taking all this into consideration, I believe this anomalous Pokémon is, in fact, a Voltorb that once lived in the Hisui region.
  • Is it still a regional variant if it only existed in the past? Gosh, what a puzzle.
  • For now, I suppose we may as well call this Pokémon Hisuian Voltorb.
2nd Part

  • I’m still reeling, TRAINER.
  • Can you believe Pokémon from a different time are now appearing around us?
  • Anyway. Our research sure has been exciting lately, hasn’t it, TRAINER?
  • Something tells me we’re in for even more exciting discoveries!
  • Let’s keep at it and see what else our adventure together brings.
  • I wonder what this Pokémon has seen in the Hisui region—and what it thinks of the future it’s suddenly seeing now!
  • Ah, the Hisui region... I wonder what other kinds of Pokémon lived there.
  • What I wouldn’t give to go back in time and experience the Hisui region for myself! It’d be a dream come true!
  • Maybe if I ever meet Celebi, I could ask it for a quick trip back in time, just to sate my curiosity!
  • ...But I’m sure that’s not possible. It’s nice to dream, though!
  • Anyway, I’ve decided to research whether Hisuian Voltorb can evolve.
  • I haven’t the foggiest if it can, but that won’t stop me. I want to learn everything about this strange and wonderful Pokémon.
  • After all, it’s not every day that a literal blast from the past falls into your lap! Get it? Because Voltorb can Self-Destruct? Haha...

Trivia
