Pokemon Go Water Festival Global Challenge explained

The current Water Festival Global Challenge in Pokemon Go requires trainers around the world to catch 600,000,000 Water-type Pokemon (that’s six hundred million!) within a set amount of time.

Players will work together on this quest, so any Water-type Pokemon you catch will be added to the overall number. Once the goal has been reached, everyone can enjoy the rewards.
