Is Sylveon in Pokémon GO yet? The Pokémon is among the most popular in the franchise, and certainly one of the most special evolutions for Eevee, both because of its status as a Fairy-Type Pokémon and because of its looks. The Pokémon's blue, pink and white color scheme is eye-catching and complements its adorable design. So when will Pokémon GO trainers be able to get it into their Pokédexes?

Is Sylveon in Pokémon GO Yet?

Although Sylveon is not yet in Pokémon GO, it soon will be. When Pokémon GO developer Niantic announced the Luminous Legends Y event May 10, it revealed that Sylveon would become available during the event.

The Luminous Legends Y Event began May 18, but it won't be until the second phase, which begins May 25 at 10 a.m. local time, that Sylveon will finally join the roster of catchable Pokémon. Players will be able to evolve Eevee into Sylveon by earning hearts when it's set as their buddy. Slyveon-inspired avatar items will also be available in the shop.

The Luminous Legends Y Event will end Monday, May 31 at 8 p.m. local time.
