Pokémon Go event gave more than half a billion Magikarp a home!
Back in march trainers had the chance to catch shiny Magikarp during an event which caused tons of players to go through hundreds of catches to get one. Some trainers were able to get a Shiny Magikarp and others were unable. At the end of the Water Festival the official Pokemon GO twitter tweeted out the specific number of Magikarp caught during the event.
Great work, Trainers! Collectively, you caught over 589 million Magikarp during the #PokemonGO Water Festival.

Over 589 Million Magikarp were caught during this event which is clearly a bit over half a billion which is very impressive. With a fan base of over 65 million players this is expect as each trainer will go through tons of catches in order to find a shiny Magikarp. This event also helped tons of players finally get their Gyarados with all the extra candy from searching for shiny Magikarp.
Should Pokemon GO do more events like this or similar to their Lapras/Snorlax events in Japan for the rest of the world? Let us know in the comment section!
That’s all for now have a wonderful day!
