In celebration of the Water Festival event this week, “Pokemon GO” has started an event wherein a lot more Lapras and other popular Water Pokemon are released in the wild. This means that players will be able to catch these water-type creatures, particularly when players visit their nest. The event is scheduled to start today.

According to Gamerant, a new event has been launched by Niantic and it involves water-type Pokemon. If players visit the places where this type of Pokemon is most likely seen, they will be able to have better chances of catching popular water Pokemon including Squirtle, Magikarp, Totodile, and even Lapras. And that’s not all, even their evolutions will also have an increased catch rate within the event.

The event starts today at 1 PM PT which is 4 PM in ET and 8 PM in GMT. It will last for about a week which is March 29, 2017, Wednesday. And as an added bonus, Niantic included a bonus item in the player’s wardrobe called Magikarp Hat, and it should be found in the player’s wardrobe.

So now all the players need to do is find the nest of their favorite water-type Pokemon and start catching them according to Pokemon GO Niantic Lab. As for those who are not aware of the nests, it's usually found near water like a beach shore, any place with a body of water including water fountains and water tanks. Especially places with PokeStops so players can also use game items to increase the spawn rate of Pokemon.
