The Water Festival Increases The Spawn Of Several Rare Water-Type Pokemon: Lapras, Dragonite & Dratini Will Likely Appear More In The Event
Niantic Lab's "Pokemon Go" is again bringing up the chatter with shiny Magikarps. Several players have been able to spot the creatures during the Water Festival event. But aside from lustrous creatures, a number of rare Pokemon will also be appearing in the week-long event.
According to a Forbes, the event increased spawns for water-type Pokemon. These creatures are the ones that spawn near bodies of water.
The appearance of rare water-types might entice players to pick up where they have left off. Having Lapras, Dratini, and Dragonite more frequently on the map is quite a treat. Especially for players that have filled up their Pokedex with Pokemon.
Lapras is one of the games rarest Pokemon, most players can have one from a rare 10km egg. The ice/water Pokemon might still be difficult to find in the event, but the chances are higher throughout the week.
Another sought after Gen 1 Pokemon is also making an appearance at the "Water Festival." Dratini is a dragon type Pokemon that's apparently a water-type in "Pokemon Go." Chances to get one are high during the event. It's evolution forms will likely make an appearance. Dragonair and Dragonite will also spawn at a higher occurrence.
Aside from this rare Pokemon, other water based creatures will also spawn at a higher rate. Squirtle and Totodile might be easier to catch and find during the week-long event. Though it takes a lot of time to get them to evolve, players in arid areas can enjoy the catches.
It's possible that higher rated Pokemon will swarm on the map. Blastoise and Feraligatr will be around for a while but be wary, the event will also spawn a lot of Poliwags.
Currently, the shiny Magikarp and Gyarados are in the center of the week-long event. News about sightings all over the world are breaking out in several search queries. Stay tuned for updates.
