The Astral Eclipse event is currently live in Pokemon GO, marking the final chapter of Cosmog's journey that began with the Nebula Legendary appearing at the start of the Season of Light. The unique event accommodates the debuts of Solgaleo and Lunala while also bringing new Special Research chapters and Collection Challenges.

The Astral Eclipse event began on November 23 at 10 am and will end on November 28 at 8 pm local time. With the debut of the box Legendaries of Pokemon Sun and Moon, Pokemon GO players will be able to evolve Cosmoem into either of them provided they have a hundred candies ready.

The event has more than a dozen Pokemon appearing more frequently in the wild and the Collection Challenges focus on players catching them.
