The Pokémon GO Adventure Week 2019 began on June 4. It will continue through June 11. This marks the third annual Pokémon GO Adventure Week.
As in past Adventure Weeks, the amount of Rock-type Pokémon that spawn in-game will increase during the next seven days. This applies to egg hatches as well. This week, players will have the chance to hatch Geodude, Onix, Rhyhorn, Omanyte, Kabuto, Larvitar, Lileep, Anorith, Cranidos, and Shieldon.
New shiny Rock types will also begin to appear this week. These include Onix, Steelix, Lileep, Cradily, Anorith, and Armaldo. This week particularly provides trainers with a good chance to obtain Fossil Pokémon.
Special Raid Battles will occur during the 2019 Pokémon GO Adventure Week. These will include powerful Rock-type Pokémon like Aerodactyl, Tyranitar, and Aggron. In addition, a select few non-Rock types can appear in this week’s Raid Battles. Those Pokémon are Mawile, Alolan Marowak, and Absol.
The five-star Raid Battle list will also include two very special Legendary Pokémon: Cresselia and Defense Form Deoxys. A full list of Pokémon that can be fought during this week’s Raid Battles is available.

Serebii has also confirmed that Legendary Pokémon can now learn a new move with only 25 Candy. Previously, Legendary Pokémon required 100 Candy in order to add a new move to their move set. It is not yet confirmed if this is an intentional feature of the Pokémon GO Adventure Week or a glitch. Legendary Pokémon will still require 100,000 Stardust to learn a move.
