For Pokemon GO players looking for something new to do, Niantic revealed a new Adventure Week coming soon! The newest event officially kicks off on June 4 and will once more offer trainers in training a chance to earn exclusive rewards, catch new types of Pokemon, and a shot at a few Shinies as well!
Interested in partaking? Here's what you need to know, according to Niantic:
Date + Time
- Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at 1 p.m. to Tuesday, June 11, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)
- Rock-type Pokémon like Geodude, Rhyhorn, Omanyte, Aron, Lileep, Anorith, and many others will appear more frequently in the wild.
- Hatch Rock-type Pokémon such as Onix, Larvitar, Lileep, Anorith, and Shieldon from 2 km Eggs.
- Challenge Onix, the Rock Snake Pokémon, and other Rock-type Pokémon in raids.
- You may encounter a Shiny Onix, Lileep, or Anorith if you're lucky!
- Earn 4× Buddy Candy (Tip: Turn on Adventure Sync to make every step count!)
- Visit new PokéStops and earn 10× XP on your first spin of each Photo Disc
- Trainers who have Adventure Sync activated and walk 50 km will earn 50,000 Stardust and 15 Rare Candies!
- Specially themed Field Research tasks will be available for a limited time during this event.
The Buddy Candy increase is a fine incentive on its own, but no true Pokemon fan can resist the lure of a Shiny Pokemon! Plus, 10X the amount of the usual XP earned?! That's insane! And definitely a solid reason to jump back in for those that may have taken a break or haven't tried the mobile experience at all.
