The Water Festival in Pokemon GO is already underway, and users of the mobile AR game will have until May 20 to experience all of the special bonuses, spawns, and activities that come along with the annual event. The Water Festival is one of the most exciting items on the May 2022 Pokemon GO calendar, which includes many additional features for trainers to keep an eye on.
During the event, there will be some Special Research for players to complete, but these aren''t the only quests to complete in the next week or so. Pokemon GO players can also find event-themed Field Research by spinning Pokestops in their local areas during the event time frame. The limited time availability Field Research is generous, therefore players will want to keep an eye on it.
These tasks, like most Field Research, are all fairly straightforward and not incredibly costly to complete. The event spawn bonuses will help make some of the Water-type specific challenges a lot easier than they may possibly anticipate first. However, catch 25 Pokemon is likely to be the most time consuming task (assuming players can easily find Magikarp or Wailmer), but the reward will be worthwhile for many enthusiasts and completionists. Otherwise, most tasks can be completed in an hour or less of gameplay time.
