Niantic has announced a new event for Pokémon GO: Luminous Legends X. The Life Pokémon, Xerneas, a Legendary Pokémon from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, will make its Pokémon GO debut. Dragon- and Fairy-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Kalos region, such as Spritzee, Swirlix, and Goomy will also debut in this event.

Dratini, Ralts, Bagon, Cottonee will be appearing more frequently in the wild. Pokémon that will hatch from 7 km Eggs include Cleffa, Igglybuff, Azurill, Gible, Swirlix, and Spritzee. Psychic-, Dragon- and Fairy-type Pokémon like Galarian Ponyta, Alolan Exeggutor, Xerneas, and more will be appearing in raids. There will also be event-exclusive Timed and Field Research, and AR-mapping tasks.

During this event, if you evolve a Dragonair or use a Charged TM on a Dragonite, it can learn Draco Meteor. Evolving a Shelgon or using a Charged TM on a Salamence will teach it Outrage.

A brand new item, the Rainy Lure Module, will be introduced. It attracts Water-, Bug-, and Electric-type Pokémon. When near a PokéStop with an active Rainy Lure Module or when the in-game weather is rainy, Sliggoo can evolve into Goodra.

The event will take place starting from May 4, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. local time, and ending on May 17, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. local time.
