The Season of Legends is heating up in Pokémon GO with the arrival of Xerneas as part of the Luminous Legends X event. The release of one of Gen 6’s Legendary creatures comes alongside the launch of various Dragon and Fairy type species from the Kalos region. Yveltal seems to be coming in a similar event at a later date, so let’s dive into all of the details for the Luminous Legends X event in Pokémon GO.

When is the Xerneas Release Date in Pokémon GO

The Luminous Legends X event will begin on Tuesday, May 4th at 10am in your local time zone. This will be a two week event, ending at 8pm on Monday, May 17th. You’ll have a lot to do during this time though, including hunting down Xerneas raids at nearby gyms. Here’s all the features of the event.

Luminous Legends X Event Details
