Expedition events (Japanese: 探索イベント Exploration Event) are a type of limited-time event in Pokémon Masters EX. These events feature area info consisting of multiple stages that players can explore.

Search for the Ball Pokémon!

This event ran from March 21 to April 7, 2023. It was focused on Ball Guy. Players could work with Ball Guy to search for Voltorb that had escaped.

Plot

Sophocles and Molayne are looking for something in the forest, and Ball Guy offers to help them. They explain that they're looking for ten Voltorb that ran away after being scared by an explosion. Ball Guy says he can handle that, and Sophocles and Molayne thank him for the help.

The player and Ball Guy search through one area, finding three Voltorb uneventfully. Upon arriving in the second area, Molayne calls and tells them that Sixtorb is a Shiny Voltorb. Ball Guy thinks he's found it, but it turns out to be a Spheal. Luckily, Spheal's Trainer shows up with Sixtorb and explains that it had gotten mixed up with his other Spheal. The player and Ball Guy collect Sixtorb and the two other Voltorb in the area. In the third area, Sophocles and Molayne call and tell them that Seventorb is a friendly and energetic Pokémon, so it might be playing with children somewhere. After interrogating a Preschooler about it, they find that Seventorb played with her and her friends so much that it evolved into Electrode. Another Voltorb in the area is blocked by a small tree, so Ball Guy uses his secret technique to chop down the tree and get to the Voltorb. After they find another Voltorb in the area, the last Voltorb finally comes out of hiding, so Ball Guy and the player manage to round up the whole group.

Later, Sophocles and Molayne are standing in the forest, surrounded by all their Voltorb and Electrode. They thank Ball Guy again for his help, and Molayne says that Ball Guy's an expert on all things ball-like. Ball Guy is flattered by the compliment.

If the player and Ball Guy give up before finding all the Voltorb, they meet up with Sophocles and Molayne to report their lack of success. Molayne suggests that they take a break and come back to search later, and Ball Guy promises that they'll find all the Voltorb next time.

(Forest; Sophocles and Molayne are looking for something)
Sophocles Oh! There they—
(Ball Guy and Amoonguss turn to look at Sophocles and Molayne)
Sophocles Nope. My mistake...
(Ball Guy walks over to Sophocles)
Ball Guy Hello there! You seem to be searching for something! I can help you out!
Molayne Really? In that case...
Sophocles If you could search for our Voltorb with us, that'd be really helpful!
Ball Guy Voltorb?
Sophocles Yeah. They were helping us with our inventions...
Molayne But one of them exploded, and that scared the others, so they ran off!
Sophocles There were 10 Voltorb total that ran away...
Ball Guy OK! Leave it to me!
Sophocles Thanks!
Molayne Sorry for the trouble. And thank you!
Ball Guy OK! I'm gonna make myself useful!
(When speaking to Ball Guy)
(Ball Guy's phone rings)
Sophocles When you find a Voltorb, call out to it gently and...
(When tapping the Voltorb on the far left of the area)
Ball Guy Come on! Let's roll on home!
(When tapping the Voltorb in the center of the area)
Ball Guy Oh, that's where you were hiding! Come with me!
(When tapping the Voltorb on the far right of the area)
Ball Guy Come on! Let's roll on home!
(Second area)
(Ball Guy's phone rings)
Molayne Sixtorb the Voltorb has a rare color!
It stands out, so it should be easy to spot...
Ball Guy Rare color... Could that color be...blue?
Molayne Yup! I knew you'd get it!
(When tapping the Voltorb on the far left of the area)
Ball Guy Come on! Let's roll on home!
(When tapping the Voltorb in the center of the area)
Ball Guy Oh, that's where you were hiding! Come with me!
(When tapping the Spheal)
Ball Guy Look, it's a blue Voltorb!
(Spheal turns around)
Ball Guy Oh, unbelieva-ball! It's actually a Spheal!
??? Heeey!
(A Swimmer with two Spheal and a shiny Voltorb appears)
Swimmer I've been looking all over for you, Spheal!
Ball Guy Oh! That Voltorb!
Swimmer Hm? Is this Pokémon yours?
I guess it had gotten mixed up with my Spheal. Before I knew it, it was following me around!
Ball Guy It's not my Pokémon, but I've been looking for it!
Swimmer Great! I'm glad we both found the Pokémon we were looking for!
Time to go home, everyone!
(Third area)
(Ball Guy's phone rings)
Sophocles Seventorb the Voltorb is super strong but also really friendly and kind...
Molayne It might be playing with children somewhere.
Ball Guy I see, I see... That's understanda-ball!
(When tapping the Voltorb in the center of the area)
Ball Guy Come on! Let's roll on home!
(When speaking to the Camper)
Camper Um... Were you eyeing that item ball? I want it, too!
Ball Guy Actually, that's a Pokémon! It's probably a Voltorb!
Camper Huh? You mean it's alive?
Ball Guy But...this small tree is in the way, so I can't go over and round it up!
Then it's time to use my secret technique!
Hyaaah!
(Ball Guy chops down the tree)
Ball Guy I'm glad my secret practice with that paid off!
Camper W-wow!
(When speaking to the Preschooler)
Ball Guy Hello there, young lady! Have you seen any Voltorb around here?
Preschooler ... ... ...? I dunno.
Ball Guy I see.
(When speaking to the Preschooler again)
Preschooler What's a Voltorb? I really don't know.
(When speaking to the Preschooler a third time)
Preschooler Is Voltorb a Pokémon?
(When speaking to the Preschooler a fourth time)
Ball Guy (Wait a minute...)
Do you know what an Electrode is?
Preschooler Yeah! My friends told me about it!
It's over there playing with everyone!
(The Preschooler runs off and returns with her friend and an Electrode)
Ball Guy So it evolved! Pokémon sure are mysterious creatures!
(When speaking to Amoonguss)
Ball Guy Amoonguss... We're not finding any of them...
Should we head back?: Maybe we should head back and report what we've found so far...
I won't give up!: No! We can keep searching!
(When tapping the Voltorb on the far right side of the area)
Ball Guy Oh, that's where you were hiding! Come with me!
We rounded up the whole gang! Outstanding!
(If the player gave up before finding all the Voltorb)
Ball Guy We couldn't find all the Voltorb...
Molayne Let's take a break for now and come back to search again later.
Sophocles Thanks for the help, Ball Guy!
Ball Guy You're very welcome. We'll definitely find them all next time!
(If the player found all the Voltorb)
Ball Guy We found all the Voltorb!
Sophocles Amazing! Thanks, Ball Guy!
Molayne Just as I heard, you sure are an expert on all things ball-like!
Ball Guy Oh my! That makes me feel so honora-ball!
