Pokemon GO Luminous Legends X Exclusive Charge Moves

During the event, Dragonite can learn Draco Meteor, and Salamence can learn Outrage. You can get these moves on the corresponding Pokemon by evolving them during the event or using a Charged TM.

Rainy Lure Module

A new item debuts during this event: Rainy Lure Module. The new module attracts Pokemon that like the rain, including some Water-type and Bug-type Pokemon. Like other modules, it’s also going part of a specific Pokemon’s evolution: Sliggoo to Goodra. The event will be an excellent opportunity to catch some Goomy, so keep that in mind.

After the Luminous Legends X event concludes, trainers can look forward to Luminous Legends Y. We don’t have much information on that one yet, but we do know Yveltal will be part of it.

Pokemon GO is available on Android and iOS devices, and players can learn more about the Luminous Legends X event via the official announcement on the Pokemon blog.
