"Pokemon GO" is expanding its legendary Pokemon roster with the arrival of Xerneas and Yveltal in the Luminous Legends event, with several Generation VI creatures joining the upcoming debut. The game is marking the start of May to be the introduction of the new Pokemon, alongside the arrival of new events and offers.
The event would run throughout May, and both legendaries would be offered weeks apart from each other but would ensure that it would both be on five-star raids once it arrives on the platform. It has been a crazy end of April for "Pokemon GO" and Niantic Labs, as different events have occurred in the game.
Apart from that, there were also a couple of disturbances, such as the Team Rocket disappearing from haunting and challenging trainers to a battle as they go around the map for PokeStops and others. The game has been in constant development, and it aims to come strong this May, especially as it marks another month for its new offers and content.

According to Pokemon GO Live's website, the upcoming May would be jam-packed with events and offers from the game, and one of the month's highlights is the Luminous Legends event that would be held on two separate weeks. "Pokemon X & Y's" legendaries are set to make an appearance, and this is the first time it would dawn on the AR game.
Luminous Legends X would be held from Tuesday, May 4 to Monday, May 17--almost two weeks of the legendary raids and appearances from the legendary Xerneas for the game. Moreover, this Legends X event would bring Dragon and Fairy-type Pokemon from Generation 6 with the likes of Goomy, Swirlix, and Spritzee, alongside other creatures of the same type.
On the other hand, Luminous Legends Y would be held from Tuesday, May 18, until Monday, May 31, and is showcasing Yveltal, of the "Y" aspect of Generation 6, bringing Dark-type Pokemon. This time, there would be an increased chance of encountering Team Rocket Grunts and PokeStop challenges that would give players a battle experience.
