Honoring memories

The event's aim is not just to encourage fans to play the game or those who stopped playing to return to the game. The Pokemon Go Adventure Week Rock-type event is actually a way to honor the memories of the game since its launching last year.

Niantic said that in December 2016, players collectively walked past the distance from the Earth to Pluto and as of now, the collective walking distance is equivalent to a journey around the solar system. Players have already traveled more than 15.8 billion kilometers as of May 11.

The game developer added that players can make new memories as they walk around, exercise and explore the world. Hence, they would like to honor the memories that were created through the game as well as the collective journey of the players worldwide through the Adventure week.


The event will focus on a certain type of Pokemon each week.
