The Luminous Legends Y is officially rolling out in Pokémon Go, meaning players will now be encountering an increased number of Dark-type Pokémon and other species that were previously featured in the Luminous Legends X event.

From May 18 to 31, Luminous Legends Y will be split into two parts that will focus on drastically different elements, with Yveltal and Sylveon being the headliners for each respective period. 

Part one will heavily feature Team Go Rocket and have Yveltal appearing for the first time in five-star raids. Team Go Rocket will continue appearing in part two, but the focus will shift to other things, like Sylveon being added to the game. 

You can also expect additional bonuses to be added to the game for part two on May 25 if players can defeat 25 million Go Rocket Grunts before the end-of-day on May 23.

With a ton of rewards and bonuses on the line, here are all the research tasks you can complete during the Luminous Legends Y event.
