Adventure Week will be returning to Pokemon Go, from June 4 at 4 p.m. ET until June 11 at 4 p.m. ET.

Rock-type Pokémon will be spawning more in the wild, including a chance to get a Shiny Onyx, Lileep, and Anorith.

Two kilometer eggs and raids will also host more rock-types to celebrate the event. Step eight of the Let’s Go, Meltan Special Research requires that players catch fossil Pokémon, so this is a good chance to complete those steps if you haven’t already.

Other bonuses include quadrupled candy from your walking buddy and a special reward of 50,000 Stardust and 15 Rare Candies for anyone who walks over 50 kilometers using Adventure Sync. Pokéstops that haven’t been visited before will also earn players 10 times more XP than usual when spun. Un-visited Pokéstops can be identified by a white ring around the stop.

Players should be sure to turn their Adventure Sync feature on and set any Pokémon they need candy for as their buddy to get the most out of this event’s bonuses.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
