If you’re still waiting for Lapras to land in your Pokémon Go PokeDex, it might be your lucky day. Pokémon Go announced its new Water Festival event today, which will increase select water spawns globally.

Totodile, Squirtle, Magikarp and others will appear more often after 1 P.M. PDT for the next week. To celebrate, your trainer will now be outfitted with a Magikarp hat, which surely will not get them beat up at school.


Also, Pokémon Go patched a feature that had players pretty excited. When you hit a 7-day streak with PokeStops, you’ll now receive a random item for evolving Pokemon. With the glacial pace Pokémon Go’s updates move, ramping up evolution was a good decision.
