Ever since its debut last summer, Pokemon GO has encouraged players around the world to go out and catch ’em all through a variety of community events, with the game’s latest event set to kick off a whole new adventure.

The next community event in Pokemon GO has been announced with “Adventure Week,” which will bring a greater amount of Rock-type Pokemon to the mobile hit from May 18th 1pm PT – May 25th, 2017 1PM PT, including Omanyte, Kabuto, and Aerodactyl.

In addition to the increased chances of catching rare Rock-types, players will also be able to pick up more items at every PokeStop, while PokeBalls will also be discounted by 50% at the in-game shop during the run of the event. Candies will also be found 4x as quickly when traveling with a Buddy Pokemon, while players will also be able to grab a brand new avatar item in the inventory, called the Explorer’s Hat, to coincide with the adventurous week ahead.

Pokemon GO is available now on iOS and Android.
