Pokemon GO: Luminous Legends Y Research And Rewards

Yveltal arrives in Pokemon GO with the Luminous Legends Y event, and that means new timed research to go along. Xerneas has been pushed out and it's time for Dark-type Pokemon to take over for a while.

Luminous Legends X and the timed research was all about Fairy-type Pokemon. on the opposite end of the spectrum, Luminous Legends Y pits players against Team GO Rocket grunts and tasks them with catching Dark or Shadow Pokemon. There are plenty of steps, but the rewards are worth the effort.
