As we mentioned in previous publications, the objective of Niantic to keep the game active and happy to its players, while developing other features in the application, will be to base the game on events, which have been quite useful for those coaches who follow faithful to Pokémon go.
In the same way that the previous events have been generated (by type of Pokémon), Niantic has announced this new event which will be oriented to the Pokemon of the type rock and fossil. In addition to this, some very interesting extra features are added.
Te official communiqué of Niantic in Spanish:
“Coaches, in December of 2016, together, we exceed walking the equivalent distance of the Earth to Pluto and now, we are on a journey beyond the edge of the solar system! Until May 11th, the Pokémon go Community has travelled over 15.8 billion kilometres, and we are still awaiting more adventures
Pokémon Go was developed for people to easily experience the classic game of Pokémon from their mobile device and capture Pokémon in the real world. As a result, every day, people from all over the planet come out and explore the world around them, create new memories and do a little exercise on the way. We would love to honor the memories created so far and our collective journey still to come, with the celebration of the adventure Week of Pokémon go from the 1:00 p.m. PDT from May 18 to 1:00 p.m. PDT on May 25, 2017.
To help you stock up for your next adventure, you can get more items from every PokéStop you visit, and the Poké Balls will have a 50% discount on the game store. Your Pokémon partner also has the adventurous spirit and will find candies four times as fast as the celebration lasts. Whether you’re exploring your neighborhood or a new exotic location, make sure you have your eye on the rock-type Pokémon like Omanyte, Kabuto and its evolutions. Stay alert: You could even get a Aerodactyl!
Last but not least, you will notice that a totally new avatar element has been added to your wardrobe: the Adventurer’s hat. Once the adventure week begins, take your new hat and start your trip.
We are excited to see where Pokémon go will take you this week. Document your trip with the Pokémon Go RA camera, post your photos on the social networks using # PokemonGO! As you embark on your adventures, remember to be always alert and aware of your environment when you play Pokémon go, as well as respect the communities and places where you play.“

In addition to the rise of the rock and fossil type Pokémon, during the event the candies you will get with your Pokebuddy will fall to 1/4 of the required distance, that is: 1 km = 250 meters 3 km = 750 meters 5 km = 1250 meters in this way, those who travel long distances with their companions will be rewarded. In addition there will be a greater chance of obtaining evolutionary items of PokéStop, so we recommend you go for a walk if you still do not have Porygon 2 or Kingdra in your pokedex.
To finish, a new hat style will be added: the Adventurous headwear item. This had already been seen with the cap of Pokémon that was delivered free for the event of the Aquatic festival, giving a very attractive touch to this new celebration.
