The Water Festival is making an even bigger splash in 2018! 

From today until June 21st 1:00pm PDT the Water Festival will be live in Pokémon GO! Players can take advantage of the following bonuses:

  • Spawn increases for Water-type Pokémon such as Magikarp or Wailmer 
  • The chance to encounter Shellder’s shiny form 
  • New Field Research tasks focused on Water-types
  • 3× Stardust for each Water-type catch
  • 2x Candy and Stardust for every egg hatch 
  • Special 2km egg drops from PokéStops – Promising exciting Water-type hatches such as Totodile, Mudkip, and Corphish

In addition Kyogre has made its return as a Legendary Raid Boss, and if you’re lucky enough you can encounter it as a Shiny!

Seems like a great opportunity to farm some Magikarp candies for Professor Willow’s special research task, and get some Wailmer candy for its hefty evolution fee! How’s your Pokédex coming along in GO?
