Pokemon Go’s Adventure Week event is coming to an end, which means you’d better hurry if you want those Rock-type bonuses.
The good news for UK fans is that Niantic’s latest Pokemon Go event has a 9pm end time on May 25, which means almost a full day of hunting.
For the duration of the
In fact, Buddy Pokemon will find Candy four times as fast, which is great for players hoping to evolve some Pocket Monsters.
The price of Poke Balls will be slashed by 50% from the in-game shop, and players will also be able to equip the brand new Explorer’s Hat from the wardrobe.
But the most exciting piece of news is that Rock-type Pokemon will appear with greater frequency.
Fans should see more Rock-type Pokemon like Larvitar, Pupitar and Tyranitar, as well as Geodude, Graveler and Golem.
Then there’s Rhyhorn, Rhydon, Onix, Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops, Sudowoodo, Shuckle and Magcargo.

According to Niantic, the Adventure Week Rock-type event was conceived as a way of honouring the memories that have been made since the launch of the app last year.
“Pokemon GO was developed for people to easily experience classic Pokemon gameplay on their mobile device and catch Pokemon in the real world.
“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 honour the memories created so far, and our collective journey yet to come, with the Pokemon GO Adventure Week celebration.”
The only downside to the event is that there are no new Shiny Pokemon to collect, despite previous rumours suggesting otherwise.
Recent reports suggested that Aerodactyl would become the third Pokemon to get a Shiny variant.
After all, with Aerodactyl given special mention in the Adventure Week announcement, a Shiny version certainly seemed plausible.
“Whether you’re exploring your neighbourhood or an exotic new location, make sure to watch for Rock-type Pokémon such as Omanyte, Kabuto, and their Evolutions,” reads a Niantic blog post. “Keep an eye out – maybe you’ll even spot Aerodactyl!”
And it didn’t take long for an image of a supposed Shiny Aerodactyl to hit the web.
Unfortunately, however, the screengrab is just a mock-up and there’s no proof that Shiny Aerodactyl has been added to the game.
