  • Galar: A History
"We made for the town of Stow-on-Side, which sits tucked away in the mountains, to study an ancient mural painted upon a wall of rock. But our plans—and the mural itself—were shattered by an attack from a Copperajah!"
"Yet behind the mural, what should we find but a pair of Pokémon statues—one bearing a sword, the other a shield! These statues, older than any artifact we'd yet discovered, called into question everything we knew about the legendary hero."
