New Pokémon Go Event starts TODAY!!!
The Adventure Week event will run from 1 p.m. PT May 18 to 1 p.m. PT May 25. During this time, "Buddy Pokémon" will earn candies four times faster than normal, and players will have an increased chance of encountering Rock-type Pokemon, such as Omanyte, Kabuto and their evolutions. This event also includes increased encounter rates for uncommon Rock-type Pokemon like Aerodactyl, Onix and Sudowoodo.
In addition, once this event begins, players will receive a free new avatar item called the Explorer’s Hat, and they’ll be able to purchase Poke Balls for 50 percent off in the game’s store.
Finally, for the duration of this event, players will receive more items from every PokeStop they visit. This may encourage players to visit more PokeStops than normal!
