Pokémon GO recently kicked off two weeks of adventure as part of this year’s Adventure Week, which lasts through June 5. This event features a heavy emphasis on Rock-type Pokémon, so fans can expect to come across many Pokémon like Geodude, Omanyte, Kabuto, Nosepass, Aron, Lileep and Anorith. Shiny Omanyte, Shiny Kabuto and Shiny Aerodactyl have also made their Pokémon GO debut. Naturally, Shiny Omanyte and Shiny Kabuto evolve into Shiny Omastar and Shiny Kabutops, respectively. In addition to all the special Pokémon that are making appearances during this two-week event, other bonuses are now active as well. Buddy Pokémon now find Candy four times as fast while you’re out walking. Niantic has also shared a special image of Omanyte, an AR screenshot of Lileep and a screenshot of Larvitar as a Buddy Pokémon approaching PokéStops, which you can check out above.
Spinning the Photo Disc at a PokéStop or Gym now earns you extra XP – twice the XP for spinning a Photo Disc that you’ve already visited and a whopping 10 times the XP for spinning a new Photo Disc. Players have also been given unique Field Research tasks during these two weeks. New rewards include a Raid Battle appearance by Pokémon such as Aerodactyl and Shiny Aerodactyl. New Raid Bosses also include Kabuto, Lileep and Anorith as Level 1 Raid Bosses; Sudowoodo, Magcargo and Nosepass as Level 2 Raid Bosses; Lunatone, Solrock and Shuckle as Level 3 Raid Bosses; and Rhydon as a Level 4 Raid Boss. There are three new boxes now available for purchase via the in-game store as well:
- Special Box – three Incense, three Egg Incubators and five Lucky Eggs for 480 PokéCoins
- Great Box – six Incense, six Super Incubators, eight Lucky Eggs and six Lure Modules for 780 PokéCoins
- Ultra Box – 12 Super Incubators, 15 Lucky Eggs, eight Premium Raid Passes and 15 Lure Modules for 1480 PokéCoins
