2 sets of Luminous X/Y Event research and more spotted in Pokémon Go network traffic!

Hello coaches! A new text pack has been introduced to the game today, offering us not one, but two Luminous X / Y event research sets, an AR scan badge, and more.

By now you know the drill, everything in this article is data-minded and therefore subject to change or not even published. Credits go to the Pokéminers.

Luminous investigation X / Y

RESOURCE ID: luminous_x_event_name 
TEXT: Luminous Legends X 

RESOURCE ID: quest_title_luminous_x_0 
TEXT: Luminous Legends X (1/7)

RESOURCE ID: luminous_y_event_name 
TEXT: Luminous Legends Y  

RESOURCE ID: quest_title_luminous_y_0 
TEXT: Luminous Legends Y (1/7)

Looks like we’re getting two research sets for an X / Y light event. Xerneas and Yveltal are likely to each get their own research set with 7 steps each. I’m curious if we will all get both or if we will have to choose one of the two similar to how the Kanto event was handled.

For those who don’t know, Xerneas was exclusive to X and Yveltal was exclusive to Y

AR scan

New badge

RESOURCE ID: badge_pokestops_scanned 
TEXT: Scan {0} Pokéstop and Gym. 

RESOURCE ID: badge_pokestops_scanned_singular 
TEXT: Scan 1 Pokéstop or Gym. 

RESOURCE ID: badge_pokestops_scanned_title 
TEXT: Scanner

Texts have been submitted for a new badge called Scanner. This will be to do AR scans of Pokéstops and / or gyms. Bronze appears to be 1 scan, with no indication of what the rest of the badge requirements are. This is probably Niantic’s way of trying to get more people to do these scans for them, from what I’ve compiled, it’s widely ignored by most trainers. Nothing for this badge has been added to the APK yet, so it won’t be available in-game until we get another update from the client.

Maximum contributions

RESOURCE ID: titan_poi_scan_added 
TEXT: {0} more scanning contribution(s) will be added tomorrow. 

RESOURCE ID: titan_poi_scan_available 
TEXT: You have {0} scanning contribution(s) available today. 

RESOURCE ID: titan_poi_scan_maxed 
TEXT: You have reached your max daily scanning contribution(s) of {0}.

Apparently, you can max out your AR scans in one day… I guess to prevent people from getting the Platinum badge in just one day.

AR Snap Field Research

RESOURCE ID: quest_snapshot_wild_ducklett_chinchou_finneon 
Removed TEXT: Take a snapshot of Chinchou, Luvdisc, or Finneon in the wild 
Added TEXT: Take a snapshot of Chinchou, Finneon, or Ducklett in the wild

This particular mission was updated to reflect the correct Pokémon, with a few others receiving minor updates to change them to plural.

Conclusions and speculations

There are a few different ways they could go with the X / Y investigation, at the time this article is published, there is a little over a month left until the end of Season of Legends. The X / Y Luminous event could be the big event at the end of the season, a 2-week show to introduce Gen 6.

  • Release one after another, one investigation in week 1 and the other in week 2.
  • They make us choose X or Y and give it a similar treatment to the Kanto Tour with exclusive versions.
  • Same as option 2, but we have to buy the ticket.

Obviously, the first option would be the best option. However, it’s not out of the reach of possibility that Niantic decides to go with one of the other two, and given their penchant for ticketed events, we wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to go that route.

That’s it for now coaches. Are you excited for Xerneas and Yveltal? Which of the two is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!

Stay safe out there!
