Pokémon GO Water Festival Event!

Earlier today, Niantic announced the Pokémon GO Water Festival event! During this event we’ll see increased spawning for certain water-type Pokémon as well as a new avatar item!



The Pokémon GO Water Festival event starts today (March 22, 2017) at 1 P.M. PDT and ends on March 29, 2017, at 1 P.M. PDT.


New Avatar item

The Magikarp Hat is located under hats in the style menu and is free! It’s undetermined if this hat is limited edition, so get in those screenshots just in case (how could you not, they are hilarious lol)!

Increased Spawns for Water-types

We’ll see increased spawning of the following water-type Pokémon all around the world:


You’ll also see increased spawns for Generation II water-type Pokémon and rarely Lapras when near water.
