Pokemon GO has recently begun handing out global challengers for trainers to accomplish together.
These challenges always come with some type of reward for every trainer in Pokemon GO. The most recent challenge tasked trainers with catching Fairy-type Pokemon. Once a certain amount were caught, the rewards would unlock.
This coincides with the current Luminous Legends X event, which will be followed up by Luminous Legends Y. The focus of these events is on Fairy-types and Dark-types respectively.
Is Triple Catch XP live in Pokemon GO?
500 million Fairy-type Pokemon needed to be caught worldwide between May 1st and May 9th. Trainers across the globe participated to complete this Pokemon GO challenge, thereby unlocking the special rewards.
The rewards will be active from May 11th until Luminous Legends X ends on May 17th. A chance at Shiny Galarian Ponyta, Pancham debuting in Raids, and 3x Catch XP were all the rewards that Pokemon GO trainers received.
The chance of encountering Fairy-type Pokemon has greatly increased with the Luminous Legends X event. That made it a breeze for trainers to accomplish the global challenge set forth by the mobile game.
Now, trainers everywhere can reap the rewards. Triple Catch XP will be available in Pokemon GO until the end of the event on May 17th at 8 PM local time. That leaves a few days left to get to catching Pokemon.
As Luminous Legends Y approaches, starting the morning after the X event ends, trainers have another challenge to increase the longevity of the Triple Catch XP bonus.
From May 15th to May 23rd, 3x Catch XP, a chance at Shiny Galarian Zigzagoon, and Galarian Zigzagoon appearing in Raids, will be up for grabs.
In order to complete the Luminous Legends Y global challenge, Pokemon GO trainers will need to beat 25 million Team GO Rocket Grunts worldwide. A tall order, but trainers around the world will surely complete it.
