Niantic announces the Water Festival Event, lasts from March 22 to March 29!

Posted in


not only did we get a game update today, we’ve also got a great event! Starting today and going through March 29, Water spawns are increased all around the world, highlighting a possible Lapras spawns.

The increased spawns refer to Magikarp, Squirtle, Totodile and their evolutions, but also mentions that Lapras could be more commonly encountered in Water biomes.

A friendly reminder that a Water Biome is usually found next to still bodies of water like Lakes and Sea.

These are great news as Water Pokémon are prevalent in the Gym meta and are always sought after.

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!
