The Pokemon Go Adventure Week event is live now and along with it comes huge bonuses.

Lots of walking

The latest Pokemon Go event follows on from the Snoozing with Snorlax event which celebrated the announcement of the new Pokemon Sleep app. Unlike other Pokemon Go events, the Adventure Week focuses on walking which should hardly be surprising given its name.


Adventures are often associated with exploring and sometimes climbing. As a result, the features of this Pokemon Go event include rock-type Pokemon appearing more frequently in the wild and hatching from 2km eggs.

Adventure Week features

There have been Adventure Weeks in Pokemon Go in both 2017 and 2018, also. Both had similar features – the 2019 events’ are as follows:

  • Geodude, Rhyhorn, Omanyte, Aron, Lileep, Anorith, and other rock-type Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild.
  • Rock-type Pokemon such as Onix, Larvitar, Lileep, Anorith, and Shieldon will hatch from 2 km Eggs.
  • Onix and other rock-type Pokemon will appear in raids
  • Shiny forms of Onix, Lileep, or Anorith may appear if you’re lucky

What are the big bonuses?

Unlike most Pokemon Go events where bonuses such as egg hatching discounts and catch XP are added, the Adventure Week offers bonuses not usually seen. They are as follows:

  • Earn 4× Buddy Candy – using Adventure Sync will maximize this bonus further
  • Earn 10x XP on each PokeStop you spin for the first time
  • Trainers who have Adventure Sync activated and walk 50 km will earn 50,000 Stardust and 15 Rare Candies!

Of course many Pokemon Go trainers don’t walk 50km in a week but at least now there is additional incentive to do so.

The event is live now and will conclude at 1pm PDT, June 11.


Elsewhere, the Pokemon Go June Community Day falls during this event on June 8.

The monthly event is headlined by Slakoth which in turn will provide the opportunity to catch the durable Slaking.


Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.


That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!


Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.


While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.


So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.


Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.


Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
