Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis - All Datapod Locations | Aelio Region (Updated)

While out exploring the world in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, unlike finding Red Containers, you won't be given a Task to find all of the game's Datapods, little Tutorial tips that are dotted across the map. However, the in-game map describes these little guideposts as Collectables, and even changes the color from orange to blue once you've read one for the first time. On top of this, reading all of a region's Datapods is necessary to get that sweet 100% Explored text on the map itself. So for completionists, here's where to find all of the Aelio Region's various Datapods.

All Datapod Locations | Retem Region
All Datapod Locations | Kvaris Region
All Datapod Locations | Stia Region

Update: New Datapods were added to the Aelio region with the Retem update in December 2021. These will be marked on the main map with a gold outline if they were added to regions that already contained Datapods.

PSO2: New Genesis - All Datapod Locations | Aelio Region

Central Aelio Datapods
South Aelio Datapods
North Aelio Datapods
West Aelio Datapods
Mt. Magnus Datapods
Resol Forest Datapods
Halphia Lake Datapods
Vanford Laboratory Ruins Datapods

Since the number of Datapods is far fewer than the number of boxes, we've only put together a single big map with all of their locations, color-coded by region.

Note that the numbering is arbitrary, and just reflects the order I found the boxes, they are not numbered in-game. For the Datapod map, I've marked N1 as the first one I found in North Aelio, M2 as the second I found in Mount Magnus, and so on.
