Carvanha Pokémon GO will be featured in the latest Incense Day event. Who better to be the face of a Dark and Water event?

Normally, Carvanha is found near bodies of water, but you'll get another chance to catch one from the comfort of your home during Incense Day.

Carvanha Pokémon GO: Incense Day May 2020 Featured Pokémon

Incense Day May 2020 will take place May 17. During the event, certain types of Pokémon will appear more frequently to Incense. This time, Dark and Water Pokémon will appear, and the type will alternate every hour. For example, the first hour will feature Water type Pokémon, the second Dark and will alternate from there.

To help with the event, there will be a onetime PokéCoin bundle with three Incense.

Carvanha is a dual Water and Dark type, so it will appear during the entire event. There will also be a chance to find a Shiny Carvanha. Incense Day doesn't seem to boost Shiny encounter rates, but you sure will find a lot of Carvanha during the event.

Carvanha will evolve into Sharpedo, a Pokémon with enormous attack and pathetic defenses. Sharpedo may have the highest attack of any Water type, it suffers from low durability. A Shiny Sharpedo is magenta and it does look cool, so it has that going for it.
