Pokémon Go ‘Water Festival: Beach Week’ Timed Research, event guide

Pokémon Go’s yearly Water Festival event runs from June 6-12 this year, with a focus on the beach. As expected from the name, the event focuses on water-type Pokémon, specifically those you’d find while on the sandy shores of a beach.

Notably, the sand castle ghost-type Pokémon Sandygast has been added to the game as part of this event. Clauncher is also available shiny for the first time.
