What is happening in Pokemon GO?

In an recent blog, Niantic have revealed few more details about the Mysterious Pokemon, but lets begin with the past for those who are not aware.

The Past

On November 5th 2022, Trainers around the world started reporting some mysterious Golden Pokestops.

It was observed that as soon as Community Classic was ended, Pokestops started turning into Golden Pokestops. Spining this Pokestops had some special effect and had the following outcomes:

  1. A Mysterious coin
  2. A lot of loot

Spining this Pokestops rewarded the trainers with some mysterious coin and it also triggered a dialog between Professor Willow, and Jacq, a new character coming in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

It was also observed that a Mysterious Pokemon was roaming around the Player in the map. It was not catchable, but clicking on it triggered a speech above its head with a Coin inside the bubble.

Here’s the Full Dialog between Prof. Willow and Prof. Jacq

Willow – What’s that you’ve got, %PLAYERNAME%? Ah! Yes, I see—this appears to be a very old coin. I picked one up myself, actually. There’s something mysterious about them…

Jacq – Professor Willow? Can you hear me?

Willow – Oh—hello, Jacq! It was great hearing you speak at the World Pokémon Ecological Society conference the other day!

Jacq – Thank you. Your lecture, "Strolling through the World of Pokémon," was fantastic, too!

Willow – %PLAYERNAME%, this is Jacq. He teaches biology at an academy in the Paldea region.

Jacq – It’s very nice to meet you! Hm? Oh! That coin…!

Willow – Hm? Do you know something about this, Jacq?

Jacq – I think I might… I know we were supposed to discuss Diglett, but can I get a rain check? This is something that I want to look into!

Willow – Of course! I’ll get right on researching this with %PLAYERNAME%. And I’ll be sure to take a video of the coin and share it with you soon.

Jacq – Thank you! I’ll see you later, then. Happy exploring!

Willow – All right, %PLAYERNAME%—let’s get cracking! I’d like to find a few more coins, so why don’t we start looking around? These coins are a little suspicious, but I can’t help feeling excited all the same! I believe a thorough investigation is in order. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover—so I’ll start my search over there! Are you ready? Then let’s GO!
