Niantic is introducing a handful of Gen 6 Pokemon to Pokemon Go as part of the upcoming Luminous Legendaries X event. That event runs from May 4-17 and adds the Legendary Pokemon Xerneas to the game, along with a few other Dragon and Fairy types from Pokemon X and Y.
Xerneas will be featured in five-star Raids throughout the Luminous Legendaries X event, making this your first opportunity to catch it in Pokemon Go. On top of that, the Gen 6 monsters Spritzee, Swirlix, and Goomy will be available for the first time. These Pokemon will appear in the wild alongside other Dragon and Fairy types such as Dratini, Ralts, Bagon, and Cottonee.
In addition to the new Pokemon, the Luminous Legendaries X event introduces a new item to the game: the Rainy Lure Module. Like other Lures, this can be set in a PokeStop to attract certain types of Pokemon, but it has a secondary function as well. When you’re near an active Rainy Lure Module, you can evolve Sliggoo (Goomy’s evolved form) into Goodra. You can also evolve the Pokemon when the weather in the game is raining.
