Pokemon Go is celebrating Dia de Muertos around the world this year with a set of event-exclusive Field Research tasks to complete – and some great encounters available as rewards.
Niantic regularly celebrates real-world holidays like Christmas and Halloween with in-game events to help players encounter themed Pokemon, earn bonuses like extra catch Stardust, and battle limited-time Raid Bosses.
As well as an event-exclusive Collection Challenge, this year’s Dia de Muertos celebration also features some special Field Research tasks to complete. Doing so will lead to encounters with the likes of Sunkern and Cubone.
