Pokémon Go is hosting a special Luminous Legends X event to show off some new Pokémon, like the Legendary Xerneas. The event takes place from May 4-17, giving plenty of time to grab as many of these new releases as possible.

In this Pokémon Go guide, we’ll list out all the different types of research tasks you can get and list the other perks that the Luminous Legends X event has to offer.

Other than Xerneas, Spritzee, Swirlix, Goomy, and their evolutions are making their Pokémon Go debut. These Pokémon will have increased spawn rates, alongside Dratini, Snubbull, Ralts, Bagon, and Cottonee.

Dragonite and Salamence will also learn their Community Day moves when evolved during the event. When evolved from a Dragonair, Dragonite learns Draco Meteor. When evolved from a Shelgon, Salamence learns Outrage. Both of these moves are extremely powerful, so you should consider evolving these.

Xerneas will be featured in five-star raids throughout the event, after which it’ll be replaced by Yveltal.

There’s also a ton of event-based Field Research to complete that reward lots of new and rare Pokémon. You’ll need to spin PokéStops during the event to get these.
