The Pokemon Go Water Festival returns featuring all of your favorite water-type Pokemon along with a few new ones. Here’s everything you need to know about Water Festival 2022.

The first Pokemon Go Water Festival took place in 2017 and went on to become an annual event until 2019. For the next two years, players would enjoy numerous other events, but the Water Festival wouldn’t make the cut.

That is until 2022 when Pokemon Go announced the Water Festival would be making a spectacular return. Putting the focus back on water-type Pokemon, players can have fun in the sun while encountering some fan-favorite ‘mons for the first time in Pokemon Go.
