Water Festival and Shiny Magikarp Come to Pokemon GO
Still playing Pokémon GO? If so, you'll be happy to hear that a Water Festival event is taking place from now until March 29. The event, in correspondence with World Water Day, will give players an opportunity to catch a number of water Pokemon that might be otherwise hard to find. Water Pokemon will spawn much more frequently, but they will still be limited to areas where water Pokemon typically spawn.
Specific Pokemon that this event features include the starter Pokemon Squirtle and Totodile and their evolutions. Lapras is also getting special treatment as well as Magikarp and Gyarados. Although Magikarp might not sound very exciting at first, there will also be the potential to catch a Shiny Magikarp, the first official shiny in Pokemon GO.
