In order to keep its momentum afloat, the developers decided to make a follow-up, which the addition of the aforementioned rare Pokémon. It is worth noting, however, that this event is slated to close its curtains come March 29. Until then, players have the chance to catch more water-type creatures.

Although the odds of capturing these pocket monsters (same with Gyarados) may seem a bit slim, it is still a fun addition to experience. Enthusiasts suggest that the shiny creature is one in every 4,096 chances or encounters.
Express, however, reports that the introduction of the above-mentioned beast in Pokémon GO is a sign that more things, bigger in scope, are coming.

Niantic already confirmed the forthcoming arrival of the said feature to Pokémon GO. Unfortunately, as of this writing, they can't give a specific release date. It will introduce a mechanic in which players are only allowed to do trades with others that are near them. In a sense, trading internationally will not work.
