Starting RIGHT NOW, Pokémon GO trainers will encounter Water-type creatures like Magikarp, Wailmer and Shellder in the wild a lot more frequently. And those three Pokémon are available as shinies! This year’s Water Festival brings not just one Shiny-form but two Pokémon now have their shiny form available for the event.
The Sea Basin legendary Pokémon, Kyogre, will be returning to Raid Battles and once defeated, you have the chance to catch it in its Shiny form! On top of that, Field Research tasks from Pokéstops will focus on Water-type Pokémon and new 2km Eggs obtained during the event will hatch Water-type Pokémon so spin those Pokéstops and get walking!
Event bonuses include double Candy and Stardust for every Egg hatched along with a triple Stardust bonus for every Water-type Pokémon caught during the event. The Water Festival event ends June 22nd at 4AM (converted to our time here in SEA) so use these two weeks to your advantage, Trainers!
