The Water Festival 2019 event has gone live in Pokemon GO.
Here’s the full list of Water Festival Research Tasks in Pokemon GO and their rewards:
Earn a Candy walking with your buddy – Barboach
Catch five water-type Pokemon – Krabby
Defeat a Team GO Rocket Grunt – Carvanha
Take five snapshots of water-type Pokemon – Seel
Catch 10 water-type Pokemon – 1,000 Stardust
Evolve three Carcanha or Barboach – Clamperl
Hatch 5 Eggs – Blastoise
Win two Raids – Azumarill
In addition to finding certain water-type Pokemon more frequently in the wild and in Eggs, Kingler and Crawdaunt will be able to learn a brand new water-type Charge Move known as Crabhammer. Shiny Carvanha and shiny Barboach have also been added to the game. Raids will include more water-type Raid Bosses such as Blastoise, Vaporeon, Lapras and more. In addition, you’ll be able to fight and catch Uxie, Mesprit or Azelf in five-star raids in their respective regions, but only on August 28 from 6 to 7 p.m. local time. Plus, you’ll get twice the Candy from hatching Eggs and the distance to earn Buddy Candy will be halved if your Buddy Pokemon is water-type.
The event will last from now until August 30 at 1 p.m. PDT.
