The Pokémon GO Water Festival is underway and lucky trainers started noticing something pretty amazing. Shiny Magikarp have been identified in the game, which can be evolved into a beautiful red Gyarados!

For those unfamiliar, Shiny Pokémon can be discovered randomly in games in the Pokémon franchise at extremely low rates. These Pokémon sport a different color palette and emit an array of stars when thrown into battle.
Only Magikarp has been located so far, and at the moment, there’s no word on what kind of rate these shiny creatures will appear. If you’re heading out over the next few days, keep your eyes peeled!
