Pokemon Go Rock-Type Event End Date

Although the Pokemon Go Rock-type event kicked off back on May 24. It's unfortunately come to a close as of June 5. Keep in mind that this was the second time that the Rock event for Pokemon Go was running, after it debuted back in 2017, so there's always a chance that thr event could return next year, in 2019.
