Pokémon Go - Adventure Week

Not too long ago, Niantic Labs rolled out a Grass-Type event for Pokémon Go. It was have been a success, because the studio is rolling it out again. This time though, it’s of the Rock variety.

The event isn’t actually being labeled as a Rock-Type event. It’s just one of the main perks of the venture. Niantic is calling the next Pokémon Go event Adventure Week. It will run from 1:00 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, May 18th to 1:00 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, May 25th. Here’s what you can expect from it:

“To help you stock up for your upcoming adventure, more items will be awarded from every PokéStop you visit, and Poké Balls will be 50% off in the in-game shop. Your Buddy Pokémon is also in the adventuring spirit and will find Candies four times as fast for the duration of the celebration. Whether you’re exploring your neighborhood or an exotic new location, make sure to watch for Rock-type Pokémon such as Omanyte, Kabuto, and their Evolutions. Keep an eye out—maybe you’ll even spot Aerodactyl!

Last but not least, you’ll notice an all-new avatar item has been added to your wardrobe—the Explorer’s Hat! Once Adventure Week begins, grab your new hat and head out on your journey.”

So for all of you out there struggling to get those Golems, it sounds like now is your shot. Maybe I can somehow get a Steelix out of this event too. See you in the wild!
