Comments

Adventure Week is back for 2022, kicking off the brand-new Season of Go with a week of Rock-type and Fossil Pokemon. The event will begin on Tuesday June 7 at 10 AM in trainers' local time, and continue until Sunday June 12 at 8 PM.

The event brings two new Rock-type Pokemon into Pokemon Go for the first time--Tyrunt and Amaura--the two fossil Pokemon introduced for Pokemon X and Y. Trainers can either hatch the new Pokemon from 7km Eggs obtained during the event, or encounter them by doing Field Research tasks.
