Luminous Legends X dates and time in Pokémon Go
The Luminous Legends X event in Pokémon Go sees the release of multiple Gen 6 Pokémon in Pokémon Go, including the legendary Xerneas.
Both the timed research quest and the Luminous Legends X research tasks will only be available during the event, which runs from Tuesday, 4th May at 10am (local time) to Monday, 17th May at 8pm (local time).
The Luminous Legends X research quest consists of seven steps, which are made up of three challenges. You’ll be rewarded for every overall step and individual challenge you complete, but, due to this being a timed research quest, you’ll need to complete this quest within the event or else you won’t be able to collect all of the rewards.
Good luck catching all the new Gen 6 Pokémon!
