The Luminous Legends X event has arrived in Pokemon Go, introducing a number of Gen 6 creatures like Goomy and the Legendary Xerneas, as well as a new timed research quest and field research tasks to complete.

Despite Gen VI’s Pokedex being added to the game back in December 2020, fans of X & Y have patiently been waiting for Xerneas to make its debut. Thankfully, the wait is now over as Niantic has added the Kalos Legendary alongside other ‘mon including Goomy, Spritzee, and Swirlix.

There’s also a timed research quest that will reward trainers with plenty of Fairy-type encounters and the new Rainy Lure Module to evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, as well as several event-exclusive field research tasks to complete.
