Celebrate Day of the Dead with Pokémon GO

Dia de los muertos

Niantic is getting into the spooky spirit with a special Dead of the Dead event in Pokemon GO. This is a special event for Latin American trainers, and full details on what's included are below.

This year, spirits will return! In addition to our annual Halloween event in Pokémon GO, we will be celebrating the Day of the Dead for the first time with a special event for Trainers in Latin America.

The Day of the Dead is a holiday observed in Mexico and other parts of the Americas that celebrates the lives and the memory of family and friends who are no longer with us. In Mexican tradition, it’s said that the spirits of the deceased return to the world of the living during this special time to share a joyful celebration with their loved ones, surrounded by candles, flowers, fruit, bread, sugar skulls, incense, and other traditional foods and decorations!
