May is just around the corner, and Pokemon Go developer Niantic has a variety of events lined up for the popular mobile game next month. In addition to the Luminous Legends event, which will introduce Xerneas (and, later, Yveltal) to the game, Pokemon Go players have new Pokemon spotlight hours and more to look forward to over the next few weeks. Here’s a rundown of all the biggest events happening in Pokemon Go in May 2021.
May 2021 Research Breakthrough Encounter: Galarian Ponyta
Niantic is rolling out a new batch of Field Research tasks and rewards starting May 1, along with a new Research Breakthrough encounter. Each time you achieve a Research Breakthrough this month, you’ll earn a chance to catch Galarian Ponyta.
Legendary Raid Schedule
Incarnate Forme Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus will remain in Raids for a few more days, and once they’re gone, two Gen 6 Legendaries will make their debut in the game. The Life Pokemon Xerneas will appear as a Raid boss during the first half of the month, while its counterpart, the Destruction Pokemon Yveltal, will arrive in the second half.
