To obtain Shulk's Pessimism Skill tree, you must first have a high affinity with Colony 9 (4 Stars - 5 Stars) and have completed Jackson's Awakening quest. Triggering these conditions will unlock the quest Désirée's Future. If the quest does not appear, look for Desiree and talk to her once.
You must then listen, and challenge yourself to listen, and pretend to be interested in Desiree's story before deciding on her career. Both choices will reward you the new Skill Tree so feel free to choose any of the two choices presented to you.
