After having been focused during March and April with the Unova's Cloud Trio, it is time to change the course towards the Kalos region, where a Legendary Pokémon from the Nintendo 3DS game, Pokémon X, will make its arrival in a fantastic way to Pokémon GO.

Xerneas, the Life Pokémon, will make its Pokémon GO debut as the featured Pokémon of this event. Xerneas is a Pokémon that has existed among the tales of the Kalos people for generations, where they say it can share eternal life. In the Pokémon X story, it slept for a thousand years in the form of a tree before its revival.
Along with it, Spritzee, Swirlix, and Goomy will also make their debuts, appearing more frequently in the wild alongside other Dragon- and Fairy-type Pokémon like:
And if you are extremely lucky, you might even find a Shiny Goomy in the wild. Moving onto the eggs, the following Pokémon will be hatching from 7 km Eggs during the whole event:
A new type of Module will also be introduced with the start of the event, the Rainy Lure Modules. This will attract certain Pokémon that like rain, such as Water-, Bug-, and Electric-type Pokémon whenever you’re near a PokéStop with an active Rainy Lure Module.
Also, when you are close to these, you can evolve Sliggoo (the Evolution of Goomy) into Goodra. You can also evolve Sliggoo when the in-game weather is rainy.
Luminous Legends X: Raids and Quests
Among the featured Raids, many Psychic-, Dragon- and Fairy-type Pokémon like Galarian Ponyta and Alolan Exeggutor will be appearing around the map. All these thanks to their relation with the Life Pokémon and its story around Kalos.
