Pokemon Go’s water festival is back for 2022, bringing with it a handful of new Pokemon debuts, a new Legendary Raid, event bonuses, and more. The event will feature the debut of Dewpider and its evolution, Araquanid, as well as a new version of Lapras sporting a festive blue scarf, with the Water Festival running from Thursday May 12th at 10am to Friday May 20th at 8pm , in Players’ local time.
The new Pokémon Dewpider can be caught in wild encounters and will appear more frequently for the duration of the event. Dewpider can also be caught in Field Research encounters, and players can use 50 Dewpider Candy to evolve Araquanid.
Alongside the new debut, two new variants of existing Pokémon will be added to the game. The first is a new version of Lapras, all dressed in a blue scarf for the water festival. The scarf-wielding lapras will be available in three-star raids and will rarely appear in field research encounters. Players can also purchase their avatar a matching Water Festival Scarf from the in-game shop.
Pokemon Go also added a new Shiny version of Barnacle Pokémon Binacle for the first time, with a chance to meet both regular and Shiny Binacle from wild encounters, hatching from Eggs, and appearing in Field Research encounters.
A new five-star raid has also been added, giving players a chance to catch the legendary Pokémon Tapu Fini, the guardian deity of Poni Island.
Along with all of the Water-type Pokémon that will appear more frequently throughout the event, which you can read about on the Pokemon Go blog, there will also be a handful of bonuses in play. During the Water Festival, Rain Bait Modules last for two hours, and players will get double Candy and more Candy XL when they hatch Eggs. Trainers will also be able to unlock a special Global Challenge bonus reward of double Candy for catching Pokémon, unlocked when 600,000,000 Water-type Pokémon are caught worldwide during the event.
