The Pet Rock was a short-lived uncommon pet, that was only available for free during April Fools' Day 2020.
The Pet Rock was a joke pet that was originally only available during April Fools' Day 2020, but its availability was extended to April 3, 2020, after which it disappeared from every player's inventory and became completely unobtainable.
The Pet Rock came with the ability to be flyable and rideable and was full grown. There was no way for a player to simultaneously have two Pet Rocks in their possession, as only one could be collected from the pile near the Nursery and it couldn't be traded or given away. The Pet Rock would always disappear out of the player's inventory after they exited the game, similar to a Healing Apple, Donut or Teacup. However, players didn’t have to collect one every time they entered the game.
The Pet Rock is a gray rock that has a crude face made out of what seems like a pair of googly eyes and a taped-on red pipe cleaner that symbolizes a smile. It also resembles what a child would typically make during art class.
The Pet Rock consists of the following tricks :
- Newborn - Do Nothing
- Junior - Play dead
- Pre-Teen - Stay
- Teen - Erode
- Post-Teen - Sit Still
- Full Grown - Think
All of these tricks were the same, and the Pet Rock sat still and did not do anything.
There was speculation on whether there was a Neon version of the Pet Rock. However, it has been debunked as the Adopt Me! Twitter has officially stated that there is no Neon version of the Pet Rock. However, an image of one of the Adopt Me! Team members sitting on a Neon Pet Rock can be found on the Adopt Me! Twitter account. In the image, the Neon Pet Rock is colored pink with a glow.
- People speculate that it was released for people who don't have Robux to use a Fly and Ride pet, so that they could try it out and want to actually buy Fly and Ride-A-Pet Potions, similar to how Roblox itself had a Guest mechanic.
- This is one of the three pets that does not already have wings and that does not grow wings when flying, the other two being the Arctic Reindeer and the Reindeer.
- The Pet Rock and the Scoob are the only two limited pets in Adopt Me! that were only available for a very short period of time. Players cannot get them after the event is over.
- There is a theory that the origin of the Pet Rock is from Patrick Star's Pet Rock from the Nickelodeon TV show, Spongebob Squarepants.
- Burt had a lot of money left over so he thought it would be a good idea to buy and sell some Pet Rocks, which he immediately regretted. Since he wasn't able to profit off of the Pet Rocks, he just gave them to players for free for a day.
