Niantic truly understands the significance of events to every “Pokأ©mon GO” player. That is because the studio has just recently introduced a brand-new one called Adventure Week. This time around, the spotlight belongs to the rock-type pocket monsters.
According to AJC, on Thursday, May 18, the company introduced a new “Pokأ©mon GO” event. It is a week-long occasion and thus, expected to wrap up next Thursday, May 25. It is an in-game celebration specifically designed “to honor the memories created so far,” while being a collective journey for everyone to enjoy.
Adventure Week increases the spawn rates of rock-type creatures such as Geodude, Omanyte and Kabuto. Other fossil-based species â€” be it rare or not â€” are also expected to appear more frequently than before. For players hoping to capture their first Onyx or Aerodactyl, this is the event to take part in.
Forbes reports that the aforementioned “Pokأ©mon GO” event provides a whopping 50 percent discount on all Pokأ©Balls. Players are also given the chance to acquire more items from Pokأ©Stops. Above all, they can obtain more candies without the burden of having to walk long distances with their Buddy Pokأ©mon.
Interestingly, the event comes with a special “Pokأ©mon GO” wardrobe item called the Expedition Hat. It is available for everyone and is for free. It should be noted that this event is not deemed as a micro event like the recently concluded Worldwide Bloom. The latter basically arrived with no bonuses but did increase spawn rates of grass-type Pokأ©mon.
It remains a mystery, however, if Niantic has fixed the biome issue with the arrival of Adventure Week. The said issue first appeared in Worldwide Bloom, affecting the spawn rates of some Pokأ©mon in certain areas. It seems players will have to find it out for themselves during the span of the current event.
