Last week we were given the luminous legends X event featuring Xerneas and Fairy-type Pokémon. Now Yveltal is coming to Pokémon GO with a two-part event releasing new Pokémon in the game.
Part 1 date, time and, features
This event will start on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, at 10:00 a.m and end on Monday, May 24, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. Yveltal will be making its Pokémon Go debut and will be appearing in Five-star raids and more Dark-type Pokémon will be appearing in raids as well. During this event, You’ll be able to encounter more Team GO rocket grunts and obtain 12km eggs hatching one might give you Pancham. And because the event features Dark-type’s more will be appearing in the wild.
There will be Team GO Rocket timed research during the event. Complete challenges to get encounters with Dark-type Pokémon and Galarian Zigzagoon, you’ll also receive special field research that can lead to encounters with Scraggy, Galarian Zigzagoon, and other Dark-type Pokémon. Niantic has also released that Galarian Zigzagoon can now be found Shiny during and after this event! You’ll find Zigzagoon with research and they’ll be showing up in One-star raids
Part 2 date, time, and features
Part two of the event will start Tuesday, May 25, 2021, from 10:00 a.m to Monday, May 31, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. This part of the event will feature Fairy-type Pokémon again releasing a new Fairy-type Pokémon Sylveon!
Finally, players will be able to fill a hole in their Pokédex and collect all the Eeveelutions. To get Sylveon you’ll need to earn a certain amount of hearts to evolve it or you can easily name it Kira but using the naming trick on Eevee only works once. Keep in mind that Eevees Shiny form can be found in the wild, so if you have an extra Shiny Eevee you can get Shiny Sylveon!
Fairy-types will appear more in the wild just like the Luminous Legends X event, and Dark-types from Part 1. Swirlix, Spritzee, and Goomy will keep appearing in the wild more often in case you missed the last event. We’ll be getting special research tasks that lead to encounters with Eevee and special AR mapping tasks that reward Poffins. Niantic will also put the other Eeveelutions in Three-star raids for Part 2 of this event.
