Pokemon GO Water Event Incoming

So, after yesterday’s announcement of a new version for the Pokemon GO app, and what it brings with it, today we get news on a very welcome Pokemon GO Water event, dubbed “Water Festival”, featuring the likes of Magikarp, Squirtle, Totodile and even Lapras!

See official announcement below –


Get ready to make some waves in Pokémon GO! There’s a global Water Festival in progress, and Magikarp, Squirtle, Totodile, and friends are looking forward to celebrating with you! Starting today at 1 P.M. PDT, you’ll be more likely to encounter Magikarp, Squirtle, Totodile, and their evolutions all around the world. Additionally, when you’re out exploring areas where Water-type Pokémon more commonly appear, you’ll have a greater chance to encounter several of the Water-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region, and maybe… you might even encounter Lapras.

Also, starting later today, you’ll notice a new avatar wardrobe item—the Magikarp Hat!

The Pokémon GO Water Festival is a limited-time celebration and will come to an end on March 29, 2017, at 1 P.M. PDT, so get outside and GO catch some Water-type Pokémon!

Are you excited for this Water Festival event? Maybe you’ll finally encounter and catch the ever elusive Lapras? Let us know in the comments below!
