The Pokemon Go Legacy 40 Challenge is a brand new set of timed research throughout December. It has arrived as part of the Go Beyond update which sees the level cap in-game raised from 40 to 50, so long-time players have more to grind towards. This set of Legacy 40 challenges have been introduced to Pokemon Go for players who have already reached level 40, or reach it before the end of the year. So without further ado, here's the full list of Pokemon Go Legacy 40 challenges.

There are four sets of Legacy 40 challenges in total and to be honest, none of them are particularly difficult, especially for level 40 players. If you don't have the Legacy 40 challenges at the moment, as long as you hit level 40 during December, you'll unlock them. You have until December 31 to complete them all and earn the rewards. Reaching level 40 before the end of the year will also earn you the title of "Legacy 40 Trainer" along with a special medal.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
