Niantic has announced a special Water Festival for their mobile game, Pokémon GO. The festival brings a higher chance of encountering certain Water-type Pokémon, like Magikarp, Squirtle, Totodile, and their Evolutions.
Additionally, you’ll have a greater chance to encounter several of the Water-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region. You might even find yourself a Lapras. If you’re after something new in the wardrobe department, there’s even a fancy new Magikarp hat for your avatar to adorn
The Pokémon GO Water Festival is a limited-time celebration and ends on 29 March 2017 (1 pm PDT).
This news follows a minor update earlier this week that brought Pokémon GO to version 0.59.1 for Android and 1.29.1 for iOS. This latest update brought several small fixes, including the addition of being awarded a random Evolution item at the 7-day PokéStop streak.
