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.
“Pokémon Go was developed for people to easily experience classic Pokémon gameplay on their mobile device and catch Pokémon in the real world,” said Niantic. “As a result, every day, people around the globe go outside, explore the world around them, make some new memories, and get some exercise along the way. We’d love to honor the memories created so far, and our collective journey yet to come.”
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.
