Pokemon Go: All Water Festival Beach Research Task, Rewards Guide

The Water Festival Beach Week event is a limited-time event in Pokémon Go that celebrates the water-type Pokémon.

It features increased spawns of water-type Pokémon, new Field Research tasks, and debuts highly anticipated Sandygast and Pallossand. Players may also have a chance to catch Shiny Clauncher for the first time.

Sandygast can be found as a reward for completing Field Research tasks and a one-star raid boss. Pallosand can only be obtained by evolving Sandygast, which requires 50 Sandygast Candy.
