Pokemon GO kicks off Water Festival today
A new, limited-time celebration is kicking off in Pokemon GO today. Beginning at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 8 PM in the UK / 9 PM in Europe, players can participate in the Water Festival.
Here’s an overview of the event:
“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 Pokemon 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 Pokemon GO Water Festival ends on March 29 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM in the UK / 10 PM in Europe.
