Celebrate Día De Muertos in Pokémon Go two-day event

Día De Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebratory holiday that takes place predominantly in Mexico, looking back on the lives of loved ones who have passed on. Far from being a sad occasion, Día De Muertos is a celebration of life and color, with flowers and bright tones often associated with the holiday.

The Pokémon Company have decided to integrate more real life events into Pokémon Go this year, and are celebrating this much-loved and respected holiday with a series of in-game bonuses around the world.

What’s happening in Pokémon Go?

The thing to note is that the theme of the Pokémon Go Día De Muertos event is joy, colour and life. Flowers are often used to represent life during Día De Muertos, and so Pokémon such as Sunflora and Roselia will appear more frequently in the wild.

Collection Challenge

Another Collection Challenge badge has been released for you to collect as part of the Día De Muertos event. This time, you must collect a Sunkern, Cubone, Sableye, Sunflora and more within the two days of the event in order to earn your badge.

Event Bonuses

There will also be a number of limited-time bonuses active for the duration of the event. Global trainers can expect to benefit from Lure Modules and Incense duration being extended to 90 minutes as they will have an effect on the event themed Pokémon. These can be used to increase your chances of completing your Collection Challenge!

You’ll also earn twice the Stardust for every catch during the event window.

On top of the above, there are additional exclusive bonuses for those trainers playing in Latin American and the Caribbean. If that’s you, you can benefit from an additional Candy for every Pokémon you transfer and even more frequent appearances from the event Pokémon than everyone else.
