Both Yveltal and Sylveon will make their Pokémon GO debuts at the game’s forthcoming Luminous Legends Y case in the second half of May. As it approaches its five-year milestone, Niantic’s virtual reality smartphone game has continued to retain a large user base after its huge popularity in 2016.
Niantic has lavished new updates on its characters in the first half of 2021 to commemorate the fifth anniversary. The Marill Limited Research Gathering, which took place on May 9, was Pokémon GO’s more recent, although smaller, activities.
However, there were some problems when the event was started two days ahead of schedule, prompting Niantic to reset the success of some excited players who took advantage of the error. Now that Niantic has planned a much bigger in-game event for the last two weeks of May, it’s safe to assume the developer will be much more cautious to prevent another early release.
The Luminous Legends Y event will begin on Tuesday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. local time and will be divided into two sections, according to a blog post from Pokémon GO. The first portion will run until Monday, May 24 at 8:00 p.m., which will include Yveltal’s debut as a five-star raid, among other things.
Part two starts on Tuesday, May 25, and runs until Monday, May 31, simultaneously as part one. Sylveon will make his Pokémon GO debut during this time, along with several Eevee-inspired features and other event-specific updates.
It seems to be only a matter of time before Pokémon GO contains the full list of Pocket Monsters from all previous years. Making activities out of these new additions, on the other hand, seems to be a decent way to keep the player base engaged, particularly when it comes to legendary Pokémon, while also lengthening the entire launch process. Niantic is bound to have more plans close to Luminous Legends Y in the works for the remainder of the year and certainly beyond.
This year, not only is Pokémon GO marking its fifth anniversary, but the entire Pokémon franchise is also celebrating its 25th anniversary. Longtime fans have been anticipating a slew of releases for this year, and it appears that Niantic is doing its part to participate. Hopefully, the Luminous Legends Y event will be a huge hit with Pokémon GO players, keeping them interested for the rest of the year.
