Pokémon Go will reward players with triple the Stardust whenever they catch a water Pokémon. Moreover, two-kilometer eggs will have an increased chance to hatch rarer water Pokémon like Totodile and Mudkip. Eggs will also reward players with double the Candy and Stardust when they’re hatched. Raid battles are also getting a refreshed group of bosses with some new water-type Pokémon, including the legendary Kyogre, throw into the mix.
