Normal Sudoku rules apply. Each of the digits 1 to 9 must appear exactly once in each row, column, and nonet box of the grid.
Pivot Sudoku rules. If a cell contains arrows and its digit is N, the sum totals of the N digits in the directions of the arrows of the same color are all equal. For a given cell, arrows of different colors point to different sum totals. All possible arrows are present.
Given Cage rules. The two given cages contain digits which sum to the totals shown (30 or 25). Digits may repeat within these two cages only.
Viginti Quinque Pentomino Killer Cage rules. The rest of the grid must be entirely filled with Pentomino Killer Cages to be discovered by the solver. Each cage contains exactly 5 different digits that sum to 25. Pentominoes of the same shape may share an edge. Some borders between pentominoes are already drawn.

Very nice. I like complicated puzzles as long as I can find a start.
@bob I am glad you liked it. This was my first puzzle, and the rule set is complex, but the puzzle itself is not too hard.

Sorry for the confusion. There are three "colors" of arrows for the Pivot Sudoku rules. The small black arrows. The small black arrows with green lines. The white arrows.

Err, no to make a super complicated puzzle even more complicated, but what's the meaning of the green lines?
