Congratulations, recruit. You have been selected from the applicant pool to join a task force of scientists, researchers, and explorers from all over Astreyza. Your superior test results, stellar educational record, and passion for field work make you an optimal candidate for research in the field of Ultra Beasts. Since the establishment of contact with research foundations in our sister universe, more data has been gathered on the many strange worlds that surround us. It is high time we begin to study the stars beyond the home our ancestors found for us.
Welcome to the Ultra Recon Task Force. May the Blinding One shine on.

RECRUIT PREP INFORMATION — READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY
Your duties as a task force agent include the collection and analysis of data from various regions of Ultra Space and beyond. Depending on your talents and preferences expressed in your application, you will be recommended to join either an Ultra Recon Squad or a scientific research team stationed at headquarters.
If you are assigned to the Laboratory Research Division, you will be sent to the Astreyza College of Science, where you will be enrolled in an intensive three-year program regarding scientific methods and the study of Ultra Beasts. Internships with the LRD are available for workplace experience. Additional courses offered include communication, linguistics, zoology, ecology, botany, astronomy, physics, history, archaeology, and geology.
If assigned to the Field Research Division, you will enter a training course that will teach you the necessary skills to operate in a variety of natural environments. You will learn the basics of navigation, emergency toolmaking, hunting, foraging, the preparation of food, hand-to-hand combat, the operation of small firearms, climbing, diplomacy, and conflict deescalation. You will deal with very dangerous wild Pokémon on a regular basis. Trainees will be gifted Astreyza-native starter Pokémon as a form of companionship and protection in their travels. Starters may be chosen from up to five sets of three, each with various type combinations and stat specialties.
Each individual Ultra Recon Squad will be loaned either a Solgaleo or a Lunala for purposes of transport to other worlds. These powerful Legendary Pokémon require a great dal of resources to raise to their final evolutions, and as such the Ultra Recon Task Force, over the course of the past decade, have reared six Lunala and eight Solgaleo. Breeding has proven difficult, and all current domesticated specimens are raised from wild-caught Cosmog. These Pokémon are valuable resources and are to be treated with utmost care and respect.
Attached is a document summarizing the most current data for each known sector of Ultra Space. You will receive your division assignment in the mail within three weeks.
