Niantic has announced a new event - the Adventure Weekend 2017! What's your strategy for the event? I know I'll be walking my Porygon like crazy, managed to hatch only one in 8 months
Event summary: https://pokemongohub.net/events/rock-event/
Update: here's a great image depicting increased spawns:
Probably chansey or mareep because their both pretty rare around here
Well, I stillneed my Typhlosion and Tyranitar so i guess they'll be walking by my side. In the rest il just try and spin as many pokestops as possible. Would like to set up my inventory again. Also my wife should be giving birth around this time so I'll try to just walk around and catch pokemon while I can not visit her in the hospital.
I'm going to walk my Chansey to max out my Blissey and then probably Larvitar for my second Tyranitar
But if anyone still needs a pokemon which takes 5km to walk as a buddy, now is the time
Btw, the distance which you walked before event will be converted to Candy once the event starts! Aim for 75% of the walking distance
So for example i walk my chansey, i walk 3.75 km --> This will then directly be converted into 3 candies for my chansey or?
Yep. So in stead of 5km you will just have 1.25Every 1.25 km you will get a candy.
As I have completed my Gen 1 pokedex a few days ago I will be walking my Flaffy first! Already walking my Chansey and have 45 Candy's for her so she will be done soon
I get that i need to walk 1.25km for every candy, but i mean i walk 3.75km before the event starts. Does this 3.75km then directly convert to the 3 candies?
Have no ideea. Did anyone have such a case at the last 4xcandy event?
This is a hard one to confirm. It could happen or it could just start when the even has started.
Yeah, this is how it happened last time. The conversion happened once the game downloaded a fresh GAME_MASTER file, roughly 5 minutes after the event starts!
So we will get candys for what we have already walked??
Apparently yes, if the amount is enough for 1 or more candies
Yeah that happened with me at the start of the last reduced buddy distance event instantly got a Snorlax candy... As others said optimal strat would be to get somewhere between 3.75km and 4.99km just before the event starts for instant gains
So if the candy is close to rolling over for a 5km don't walk anymore! Undecided what to walk for this, need to power up my only dragonite and my only blissey but still have to get the mareep, and larvitar evolutions, what do you guys think?
I'm probably doing Porygon and then Mareep, but that's due to rarity of them in our local biome
Mareep seems to be extremely rare everywhere, I've only caught 1 so I that'll have to be my walking buddy for the 'Adventure' event
I need to walk my porygon and grimer as I've only hatched one of each since the game came out but I really want an ampharos too.
