Pokemon Go's Adventure Week event started yesterday and its it's going to be larger and longer than the Grass-Type event from a couple of weeks ago. The Adventure Week will last up until 25 May. The event is also called the Rock event, as it is made in celebration of exploration and adventure essential to the game.

What does the event, whatever you want to call it, entail exactly? Well, there will be increased rock spawns, quadruple Buddy Candy, PokeStops will have increased drops and Trainers will get a new wardrobe item: Adventure (Explorer) hat. Don't forget to wear a real-life hat, guys otherwise you'll be having your adventure in the ER. Stay hydrated too.

During the event, all Pokemon with singular or dual rock typing will have increased spawns. Those include:

  • Larvitar, Pupitar, Tyranitar
  • Geodude, Graveler, Golem
  • Rhyhorn, Rhydon
  • Onix
  • Omanyte, Omastar
  • Kabuto, Kabutops
  • Aerodactyl
  • Sudowoodo
  • Shuckle
  • Magcargo


The official announcement says: "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!"

In order to obtain some Buddy Candy you will now only have to walk one kilometre, which is a super short distance compared to the previous four kilometres.

The Adventure hat will be available in the game’s customization zone for free. We're not sure whether or not the hat will remain free after the event comes to its end, but if the Magikarp Hat is any indicator then the answer is a resounding yes.

Have fun, adventurers!
