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!

Tonight, 8pm UK time...

I collected another special item last night, a Kings Rock. I was walking across London Bridge and got it from the Pokestop right in the middle of the bridge.

Sigh...

I've now stopped walking my Totodile which I've done 60km so far in anticipation that they'll be thousands of them fairly soon.

Just need a Hitmonchan from Gen 1. But looking at gen 2 I don't need many more.

I'm certain there is a formula or something, that once you have something, you are then more likely to get egg hatches and so fourth. Too often I've caught something, only to then have multiple egg hatches after that.

That's some good going. Still 38 to go on Gen 2!

I was shocked to see a Top Hat was 800 coins, who'd spend that? I wondered if it was better for catching or something.

Apparently there are gold magickarp which turn into a red Gyrados, like a blue one, but red.

Seen a few fish about, but nothing massively rare. Doing a long canal walk tomorrow so maybe get something then.

I've seen at least one top hat in a London Pokegym. Didn't realise some of the clothing was that expensive.

Yeah, but you've got to figure that some people are getting 100 coins per day from gyms, so the hat only takes 8 days to obtain.

I've never managed to hold more than 5 gyms for more than a couple of hours, any longer than that and they all get taken over.

I see the 7 day pokestop now guarantees a rare item.

I've bought some clothes with coins. Gyms are pretty stagnant round here and it's fairly easy to get 60+ coins a day, even if you were instinct it's probably be possible

It's difficult with all the spoofers around Southend, I just tend to grab some gym space when my timer comes up. 40 coins is a good day.

I had a good day today, seem to have one in a good gym for about a week and nabbed two on the train going to work. However normally I'd begin to lose the first if I tried anymore. Most of the gyms near me are my team and at level 10 so can't really get any locally.

I've just gone from level 26 to level 26 again. Have I missed something?
