‘Pokemon Go’ Upcoming Event Includes Rare Aerodactyl, Features Rock-Type Pokemon Spawns
Avid "Pokemon Go" fans will soon have the chance to add more rock-type Pokemon creatures to their Pokedex. Recently, Niantic unveiled details of its upcoming new event that will have gamers embarking on a new exploration adventure to get more candy treats and potentially capture a rare Pokemon.
Niantic is celebrating an impressive "Pokemon Go" milestone with a new in-game event that will feature the increased spawns of rock-type Pokemon. Given how the mobile gaming app's community has trekked more than 15.8 billion kilometers to play the game, the upcoming event will reward gamers with the chance to capture characters such as Omanyte, Kabuto, including their evolved forms Omastar and Kabutops, respectively.
"Pokemon Go" gamers might also encounter the rare Aerodactyl Pokemon, according to an announcement posted on the game's website. Apart from increased rock-type Pokemon spawns, Niantic's upcoming event will include a special in-game adventure hat for the gamers' avatars called the Explorer's Hat, as well as a 50 percent discount on Poke Balls.
Visits to the game's various PokeStops will also reward avid "Pokemon Go" gamers with more treats during the said event. Buddy Pokemon can even find up to four times the normal candy rewards when a gamer goes off to explore their surrounding neighborhoods.
Meanwhile, apart from the said Pokemon creatures, "Pokemon Go" players can expect to find more Onix characters in the wild, including Sudowoodo, according to gaming speculations posted on Eurogamer. For Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokemon characters, Niantic might have increased the spawn rates of rock-type creatures Geodude, Rhyhorn, Larvitar and their evolution forms Graveler, Golem, Rhydon, Pupitar and Tyanitar, as well as Shuckle and Magcargo.
The upcoming "Pokemon Go" event will begin on May 18, Thursday and is expected to end on May 25, Thursday. Gamers can start collecting the special rewards and capturing more rock-type Pokemon beginning 1:00 p.m. PDT or 4:00 p.m. EDT in the U.S.
