Sylveon, the Intertwining Pokemon, has finally been confirmed for an official debut in Pokemon GO this month.

The announcement was made on the official Pokemon GO news blog on Monday, May 10. A follow-up announcement was issued via Twitter account early on Tuesday, May 11. In a single tweet, Niantic Labs confirmed the long-awaited debut of the last Eevee-lution to take the stage: Sylveon.

Fans have been wondering when Niantic would implement this Pokemon into the game. Now, it seems, with the finale of the recent Fairy event challenge, Eevee fans will be able to claim the entire collection at long last.

Sylveon Finally Announced for Pokemon GO

In the blog post, Niantic explained that Sylveon will be appearing during the Luminous Legends Y event featuring the legendary Yvetal. There's a well-known tale in Galar about Sylveon and its elegant vanquishing of a certain dark dragon. This, according to Niantic, makes the fairy-type Eevee-lution "the perfect Pokémon to appear at the end of this dark-themed event."

Fans will be able to find Sylveon during Part 2 of Luminous Legends Y, starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 25 and running through 8 p.m. on Monday, May 31, local time. Trainers will be able to evolve their Eevee into Sylveon by earning hearts with it as their buddy.

Additionally, Sylveon-inspired avatar items will be available in the in-game shop.

The Luminous Legends Y event can't come fast enough!
