Niantic’s latest Pokémon Go special event, Adventure Week, kicks off today at 1:00 PM PDT, running through until 1:00 PM PDT on May 25, 2017. The new event is a way of celebrating the fact that the Pokémon Go community has travelled more than 15.8 billion kilometres worldwide.
For the duration of Adventure Week, players can expect to be awarded more items from every PokéStop they visit, and Poké Balls will be 50% off in the in-game store. Even better, your Buddy Pokémon will find Candies four times as fast. You can also expect to encounter more Rock-type Pokémon including the likes of Omanyte, Kabuto, and their Evolutions. It may also be possible to find an Aerodactyl, according to Niantic.
Niantic is also giving all Trainers a free avatar item, the Explorer’s Hat, which will be available as soon as the event begins.
