Pokémon Go ‘Spelunker’s Cove’ event and Timed Research tasks

1 month ago 57

Pokémon Go is hosting a water- and rock-type Pokémon event called “Spelunker’s Cove” to coincide with Pokémon Go Fest: Madrid. The event runs from June 15-18 and boosts the spawn rates of the aforementioned types of Pokémon.

During the event period, any candy obtained from catching Pokémon will be doubled. Crabrawler is also making its shiny debut, so if you’re super lucky, you may see a shiny one.

Below we list out the other perks alongside Pokémon Go’s “Spelunker’s Cove” event, including the paid Timed Research, event Field Research Tasks, and spawns.

This is a paid Timed Research for $1.99. Is the “Spelunker’s Cove” paid research worth buying? While the battle passes make it worth the value, we don’t recommend shelling out this extra cash unless you really want guaranteed Crabrawler encounters.
