Pokémon GO: Every Legacy 40 Challenge Research for December 2020

New challenges are waiting for level 40 Pokemon Go players to complete. This guide will provide every legacy 40 challenge for December 2020. With the Go Beyond update releasing for Pokemon Go, the level cap has been raised from level 40 to level 50. Not only that, but every new level beyond 40 comes with new challenges for players to complete in order to level up to the next rank. For the month of December, players who have reached level 40 will be able to participate in the Legacy 40 challenge. This will provide additional goals for players to complete and rewards to collect. Here’s the complete Legacy 40 challenge and how players can complete it.


The player will need to reach level 40 before December comes to an end to participate in this challenge. Fortunately, some of the new Pokemon from the Kalos region has begun to roll out into the game. This makes it a bit easier to gain more experience for catching all-new Pokemon. These include fan-favorites like Greninja and Klefki as the first round of Kalos Pokemon. More Pokemon from this region will be slowly rolled out in a future update. Using Lucky Eggs is also helpful for reaching level 40 before the challenge is over. Here are all the Legacy 40 challenges in Pokemon Go.

Pokemon Go will continue to add new challenges to the player as 2021 is right around the corner and a new generation of Pokemon has begun to appear. These creatures originate from Pokemon X and Y, the mainline Pokemon title that appeared on the Nintendo 3DS back in 2013. It will be interesting to see how the game handles the legendary Pokemon from this generation since there are only a few introduced that generation. Diancie, one of the legendary Pokemon from X and Y will be given special research like all the other pixie Pokemon before it. Pokemon Go continues to be one of the biggest mobile titles in the world.

Pokemon Go is available now on iOS and Android.
