Pokémon GO has a new event, one that's already kicked off on a smartphone near you, and it's brought all manner of special rewards and extra buffs to make your AR Pokémon hunting that bit more enticing. Oh, and if you like your rock types, you should definitely read on.

There's some unique Field Research to be had, bringing with appearances by rare Pokémon such as Aerodactyl in Raid Battles. Rock-type Pokémon such as Geodude, Lileep, and Nosepass will appear more frequently in the wild, so be sure to keep an eye out on your travels, while Buddy Pokémon will earn candy at four times the speed for the duration of the event. You'll earn more XP from Gyms and PokéStops, and ten times as much for spinning one for the first time.
