Pokémon GO Season of Alola: Dewpider can only breathe oxygen that has dissolved in water, so it wears a water bubble on its head when it walks around on land

Niantic has announced a new event for Pokémon GO. Read on below to learn more:

Dewpider and Araquanid Debut during Pokémon GO’s Water Festival

You can also encounter Lapras wearing a scarf, battle Tapu Fini in raids, and earn bonus items during this event.

Watch for puddles as Pokémon GO‘s Water Festival begins! Through Friday, May 20, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time, you’ll see Lapras wearing a scarf and Dewpider making waves as they debut in Pokémon GO. Araquanid is also debuting—you can use 50 Dewpider Candy to evolve Dewpider into Araquanid. Plus, for the first time in Pokémon GO, you can encounter Shiny Binacle, if you’re lucky—and be on the lookout for the Legendary Pokémon Tapu Fini in raids.

The Water Festival brings with it a wave of bonuses. Rainy Lure Modules activated during the event will last for two hours, and you’ll earn twice the Candy and have an increased chance to get Candy XL from hatching Eggs. If you want to get your avatar ready for the festivities, a Water Festival Scarf avatar item is available in the in-game shop.

 

Research to Conduct

Timed Research focused on catching Pokémon will be available throughout the event, and by completing it, you can earn 50 Gyarados Mega Energy, 1,000 XP, 1,000 Stardust, and encounters with Dewpider and Lapras wearing a scarf.
