Shiny Poliwag Is Coming To Pokemon GO on August 6

In celebration fo Pokemon GO Fest events, Niantic has announced that Pokemon GO players will be able to encounter and catch a Shiny Poliwag starting on Tuesday, August 6 at 10:00 AM (JST).

That being said, players who managed to catch the Shiny Poliwag next day will have the chance to evolve them into a Shiny Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, and Politoed. Shiny Poliwag will be available worldwide but it is tied with the upcoming Pokemon GO Fest 2019 in Yokohama, Japan.

If you’re in Japan where the event will be taking place, expect to see new Special Research Task and on-site challenges that may be similar to the previous Pokemon GO Fest in Chicago and Dortmund.
