It's time for a Pokemon Go pool party.

The latest in-game event for The Pokemon Company's hit mobile game connects to the Water Festival. If you're on the hunt for more Water-type Pokemon, you'll want to fire up the game starting on March 22 at 4 p.m. ET.

Magikarp, Squirtle and Totodile (plus their evolved forms) will all appear with greater frequency until the event ends on March 29 at 4 p.m. ET.

In addition, all Water-type Pokemon that were added to the game back in February will appear more frequently wherever Water-type Pokemon are normally likely to pop up.

Best of all: there's a new hat. Starting on March 22, all players can make their Trainer avatar more stylish with a Magikarp Hat.

There isn't an official look at the hat to share yet, but here is an artist's rendering of what a hat adorned with a seemingly dead Pokemon fish looks like:
