When you live in-land with no body of water in close proximity, it can be rather hard to encounter some Water-type Pokémon, only thanks to a new Pokémon GO event, all of that is about to change.
The event is the Water Festival, and because the likes of encountering Magikarp, Squirtle, Totadile and plenty of other Water-types, was hard enough already, now it’s not as all of them will be appearing more often and there’s also a new hat for your avatar to where as well. But because we don’t want to spoil what the hat is just yet, you can read about it here, as part of the official announcement.

Make a Splash, Trainers!:
(22nd of March, 2017)
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 Pokémon 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 Pokémon GO Water Festival is a limited-time celebration and will come to an end on March 29, 2017, at 1 P.M. PDT, so get outside and GO catch some Water-type Pokémon!
