Pokemon GO is headed to the ocean with its latest Water Festival: Beach Week event. The event includes a lot of sand and sea-themed Pokemon along with some exciting new additions to Pokemon GO.

Pokemon GO is just coming hot off of its Rising Shadows event in which players were able to obtain a plethora of different Shadow Pokemon, including a fierce Mewtwo Shadow Raid. Niantic is quickly turning the dark into light, thematically speaking, for the game as it transitions immediately into its new and summery Water Festival: Beach Week event.

The official announcement about the event and all of its details came recently via Niantic’s official Pokemon GO website, as well as posts across social media. One of the main points of interest for collectors will likely be the debut of two new Gen 7 Pokemon, Sandygast and Palossand, which will be regularly appearing throughout the event. These are some of the first new Gen 7 Pokemon introduced since the recent Rising Heroes event. To complement the arrival of Sandygast and Palossand there’s also a new Sandygast hat being added that will likely look very cute, if not a bit confusing, when worn by players who have Sandygast or Palossand as their partners.

On top of the addition of new Pokemon, the event is also introducing paid timed research which, if completed before June 11, will reward players with a surfer pose for their avatars. Any players with a surplus of Rainy Lure Modules for evolving or attracting certain Pokemon may also want to save them specifically for this event, during which time those Modules will last four times longer than normal. There are also some regional-exclusive raids, such as a five-star Azelf Raid in the Americas.

Niantic has been catching a lot of flak for its recent Pokemon GO content, or maybe the lack thereof, from its player base. The problems range from longtime users not feeling like the developer has addressed enough of the key issues that have been around for years to a perceived stagnation in new content now. The change in the function of Pokemon Go‘s Remote Raid Passes to something many players consider not as good as it was during the COVID era is also not helping the game or the company’s currently negative reputation. It’s unlikely that adding a handful of new Pokemon and a paid surfer pose will be enough, but only time will tell.

Pokemon GO is available on mobile devices.

Troubleshooting Purified Gem Issues in Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO allows players to use Purified Gems against bosses in battles, but it isn’t working for some players; here is how to fix it.

Pokemon GO players have been collecting Purified Gems to help them defeat bosses during the Shadow Raid Battle event, but these can also be used during other raids. Some players have been experiencing some difficulty when using the gems with other trainers during battle, which has caused players to become frustrated since their earned gems have been wasted.

Purified Gems are obtainable by collecting Shadow Shards – players find these while doing different battles around the game – which can then be turned into Purified Gems. Players will need to collect up to 10 Shadow Shards to convert into a Purified Gem, then only use up to 5 during a Raid Battle, but other trainers can stack them up to keep the boss Pokemon from getting enraged. These are important for Raid Battles; here is how to fix the Purified Gems not working in Pokemon Go.

How To Fix Purified Gems Not Working


If a Purified Gem is used during a Pokemon Raid Battle, it will stop a boss from being enraged, making it easier to defeat. However, some trainers have been using issues with their Purified Gems working during battles. This is definitely a problem when encountering enraged Pokemon bosses, as they will quickly wipe out players’ Pokemon health bars.

There is a reason players have been experiencing some problems while using Purified Gems, and it is quite a simple thing to fix. Purified Gems will take a few seconds to take effect against the boss. While the Pokemon is in this state, if a trainer makes any attack, it will cancel out the Purified Gem. This means the Pokemon will continue their enrage, and the gem will have been wasted.

While in a boss battle with other trainers in Pokemon Go, be sure to allow the chance for the Purified Gem to take effect. Players can watch this by paying attention to the health bar above Pokemon. Trainers can also stack up their Purified Gems as well to benefit everyone even more. Only so many gems can be used in a single battle, but with the help of other trainers, it will work really well.

The reason Purified Gems aren’t working for some players is simpler than players probably thought. Trainers that want to get the best out of their gems need to save their next attack for a little longer to ensure it works. Keep an eye on the health bar, and players will be good to go for their next Purified Gem.

Pokemon GO is available now for mobile devices as a free download.
