Día de Muertos Event 2022


Hello Trainers, 

The Día de Muertos event is once again coming back to Pokémon GO!

Día de Muertos is a holiday observed in Mexico and other parts of the Americas that celebrates the lives and memories of family and friends who have moved on from this world.

In ancient Aztec tradition, it was said that the spirits of our loved ones never go away but simply travel to a different world. Those that celebrate Día de Muertos get ready for the occasion by setting a table with the favourite dishes of their ancestors, covering the streets with petals of the cempazúchitl flower, and lighting candles and incense to enjoy a joyful celebration full of colours, flowers, and flavours.
