Pokemon Go trainers have a whole new set of challenges to grind their way through for Adventure Week, and some of the field research tasks have some incredible rewards. 

Niantic's in-game event runs between June 4 and June 11, allowing trainers to encounter a wide variety of Pokemon for completing different achievements. If you hadn't already guessed from our initial image, one of which is Aerodactyl.

The rock and flying fossil type Pokemon isn't the only one that you will run into, of course, but first you're going to have to worry about the tasks that need completing.

Spinning Pokestops always play a part in the field research tasks.

The in-game event is set to come to a close on June 11, as stated earlier, at 4pm (EST), 9pm (BST) and 1pm (PT). 

However, these won't be the only tasks and rewards that trainers will be able to work their way through in June, as another series of Pokemon Go Field Research tasks and Research Breakthrough rewards will be available in the month and can be completed on a daily basis. The list works the way it did in May.

Rewards for these breakthroughs can vary from a Rare Candy, Pokeballs, or even an encounter with a legendary Pokemon. So, let's hope you have enough Pokeballs to catch them if they appear!
