Today, Pokemon GO kicks off the water festival

In Pokemon GO, the Water Festival of 2022 will feature a new Alolan species with Dewpider, a new Shiny Pokemon with Binacle, and a new Costumed Pokemon with Lapras wearing a scarf? Let''s look at the facts.

The Water Festival of 2022 will take place today in Pokemon GO, with all of the details:

  • Date and time: Thursday, May 12th at 10 AM until Friday, May 20th at 8 PM. This makes this event quite a bit longer than the four or five-day offerings we''''re seeing a lot lately.
  • New Pokemon: The new Alolan species Dewpider will also arrive along with its evolution Araquanid which can be obtained by using 50 Dewpider Candy.
  • New Costumed Pokemon: Lapras "wearing a scarf" will be released after what seems like years since it was datamined. In any case, I think calling this a scarf is weird considering it''''s a bow, but all good!
  • Shiny release: Binacle.
  • Wild spawns: Dewpider, Binacle, Tympole, Wailmer, Carvanha, Surskit, Lotad, Marill, Magikarp, Staryu, Goldeen, Slowpoke, Tentacool. Poliwhirl, Mantine, and Alomomola will be rare spawns.
  • Raids:
    • Tier One: Qwilfish, Wailmer, Spritzee, Helioptile, Rockruff.
    • Tier Three: Bow Lapras, Alolan Raichu, Feraligatr, Azumarill, Ludicolo.
    • Tier Five: Tapu Fini.
    • Mega Raids: Mega Blastoise.
  • 7KM Event Eggs: Psyduck, Azurill, and Mantyke are the common hatches; Mudkip, Feebas, and Binacle are uncommon hatches; and Staryu and Clamperl are rare hatches. I recommend making sure your Egg space is full before opening Gifts, because this is perhaps the least eventful 7KM Egg rotation we''''ve had in a long while. I remember people used to complain about the Fossils in Eggs. Boy, oh boy.
  • Special Research: The new A Poni Adventure Special Research focused on Tapu Fini went live in the game this past Tuesday.
  • Timed Research: This questline offers 50 Gyarados Mega Energy, 1000 XP, 1000 Stardust, and encounters with Bow Lapras and Dewpider. Outside of Raids and Field Research, this is the only way to encounter Bow Lapras. No wild spawns, unfortunately.
  • Field Research: You can encounter Bow Lapras through rare tasks, along with Blastoise Mega Energy, Gyarados Mega Energy, and other Pokemon encounters.
  • Global Challenge:Starting Global Challenge: Catch 600,000,000 Water-type Pokemon, trainers will be tasked with catching a total of Global Challenge: Catch 600,000,000 Water-type Pokemon across the game. If thisdoes happen, double Catch Candy will be added as an event bonus throughout the remainder of the Water Festival 2022.
