Luminous Legends Y - Part 1

Event

Starts:
Tuesday, May 18, at 10:00 AM Local Time
Ends:
Monday, May 24, at 8:00 PM Local Time

Following Xerneas’s recent arrival in Pokémon GO, the Legendary Pokémon Yveltal will soon be making its Pokémon GO debut in the Luminous Legends Y event! Dark-type Pokémon will also be appearing more often in the wild, and Pancham will be hatching from Strange Eggs.

It seems, however, that Team GO Rocket has gotten wind of Yveltal’s arrival—and naturally, they’re up to no good! They appear to be planning on turning more Pokémon into Shadow Pokémon during the first week of the Luminous Legends Y event, so we’ll need your help to save those Shadow Pokémon! We’re also receiving reports that some Team GO Rocket Grunts will be changing up their battle strategies. You might encounter some that specialize in different Pokémon types than in the past, and multiple Team GO Rocket Grunts may even challenge you at once!

During the second week of Luminous Legends Y, the focus will shift to Fairy-type Pokémon and Eevee. Why, exactly?

Because Sylveon will be making its Pokémon GO debut! The Intertwining Pokémon is an Evolution of Eevee first discovered in the Kalos region. There’s a Galarian fairy tale that describes a beautiful Sylveon vanquishing a dreadful dragon Pokémon—making Sylveon the perfect Pokémon to appear at the end of this dark-themed event. Look forward to this Fairy-type vanquisher of darkness, dread, and dragons during Part 2 of Luminous Legends Y!
