Been an update from 8pm last night, you can now wear a Magikarp hat and it's predominantly only water Pokémon showing up. 

This makes it easier to get Kingdra, Feraligatr, Blastoise and Gyarados amongst others

I finally managed to catch all possible gen 1 Pokemon the other day after evolving a tyrogue into a hitmonchan :hooray:

 

Just evolved my magicarp thanks to the water pokemon special and i'm now at the same point! Pretty satisfying.

 

My only regret is spending a week in Hawaii several months back and not getting a Tauros. I have a little one on the way so probably no other overseas travel for me anytime soon.

 

I do have an excess of Kangaskhans. Hopefully they introduce trading for the locality based pokemon

So the water festival has finished. I didn't see one Totodile and I didn't get my shiny Magikarp. :(

Apparently shiny Magikarp are still out there though.

I didn't get a shiny Magikarp either, but I have almost enough totodile's to evolve him fully again. 

 

I really am happy they did the guaranteed evolution item on a 7 days streak. I am slowly filling up my pokedex.

Ah!

My gf caught a gold coloured Magikarp the other day, is that a "shiny" one?
 

If so, what does that mean?

Dang, I'm stuck on 364 Magikarp candy.  Just needed 1 or 2 more days.

Yup, that's the one.

In the original games it's something like 1 in 10,000 Pokemon are shiny but they seemed to have reduced the rate for Pokemon Go and it seems to only be Magikarp so far. It evolves into a red Gyarados.

Other than being slightly rare and a different colour it doesn't really mean much else though, just something else for us mugs to collect I guess.
