New Shinies

The Water Event not only brought Water Spawns but also bought some new shinies.

Ditto as Remoraid

Ditto isn’t that important in Pokemon Go Metagame, So after collecting one for the Pokedex, most of the players have stopped caring about it. That all changed after Ditto when tracking Ditto became a mandatory part of the Special Research journey for catching the Mythical Pokemon Mew.

After many reports, it seems like Ditto is now also disguising itself as a Water Festival Pokemon, Starting this Morning, many trainers on Reddit began reporting that they had caught Dittos disguised as Remoraid.

The Video evidence was shared on Reddit by trainer hamstersmagic.
