Tasks For Luminous Legends X Timed Research In Pokémon GO

The Luminous Legends X event goes live today in Pokémon GO. As Dragon-types and Fairy-types spawn in the wild, the incredible new Legendary Xerneas appears. Also, we have a new Timed Research available that will finally reward us with that Super Rocket Radar we need to take on Giovanni and win an encounter with Shadow Moltres. Let's break down the tasks and rewards of this Timed Research.

I have to be honest here… I can barely believe my eyes. We have… an actually amazing Timed Research in Pokémon GO. The encounters are… good. The XP… fair. The tasks… doable but not ridiculously easy. The encounters… actually amazing with species we'd want to catch. I feel like a sea captain's wife who has given up hope, only to see a silhouette approaching through the fog.
