When does the water festival start? The Water Festival kicks off on May 12, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. local time. You will then have time until May 20, 2022 at 20:00 local time to take full advantage of the event.

All the eggs and glitter for the Water Festival

With the start of the Water Festival, the journey to the Alola region continues for you. You have been able to meet Kapu-Kime, the patron saint of Pony Island, in level 5 raids since May 10th. During the event you can expect other suitable thematic calving.

You can meet the water and infect Pokémon Araqua for the first time and evolve it in Aranestro. The rock and water Pokémon Bithora is also celebrating its sleek debut in the game, and Lapras is also wearing it for you with his blue scarf.

You can distinguish the blinding variant from its body with red and white stripes and the head covering like green leaves. During the event, you have to keep an eye on him in the desert. Alternatively, you can get it by hatching eggs 7 km and doing field research.
