Pokemon Go Water Festival The Pokémon Company

Get ready to celebrate the summer days with the return of the Water Festival in Pokémon Go. Despite arriving a little later compared to last year, the second Water Festival event features plenty of Water-type Pokémon to catch as well as a number of welcome trainer bonuses.

The 2018 Water Festival kicks off later today at 1pm (PDT) and will run until June 21. Until then, Water-types, such as Magikarp and Wailmer, will be far more common, while rarer Pokémon, including starters Totodile and Mudkip, will now hatch from 2km Eggs.

There is actually a collection of Pokemon games on mobile now. It was a long time coming because Pokemon is one of the most popular gaming franchises out there. Each game plays a little differently. …

Trainers also earn double Candy and Stardust for any Eggs hatched during the event. Likewise, catching any Water-type creatures will award three times the amount of Stardust you’d normally receive.

In addition to event-specific Field Research tasks, Water-types will also appear more often in Raid Battles. Legendary Pokémon Kyogre also returns to Raids and, if you’re incredibly lucky, you may find a Shiny form version of the oversized whale. Shiny versions of Shelder will also be up for grabs in the wild, so don’t ignore the clam-shaped critter if you fancy owning a rare form of Cloyster.

The Water Festival arrives just two days after the end of Adventure Week during which Rock-types had their time in the sun, as well as the addition of the first Alolan form monster, Alolan Exeggutor. It also comes shortly after Nintendo revealed a new Pokémon RPG game for its Switch console that includes compatibility with Niantic’s mobile hit.
