Trainers. November has commenced, and with it comes the culturally significant Día de Muertos 2023 event in Pokémon GO. This event promises not only a colorful palette of new costumed Pokémon but also introduces a diverse range of Field Research tasks designed to engage and challenge participants.
Día de Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead, is a time-honored tradition that pays tribute to the lives and memories of deceased loved ones. In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, Pokémon GO has curated a special in-game event replete with costumed Pokémon variants, shiny possibilities, unique bonuses, and a fresh lineup of Field Research tasks.
Of particular note are the Cubone and Marowak variants adorned with cempasúchil crowns. These costumed Pokémon not only capture the thematic essence of the holiday but also offer the additional excitement of shiny forms. To encounter these special Pokémon, Trainers can explore natural habitats, activate Incense and Lures, engage in One-Star Raids, or complete the Field Research task that necessitates making 3 Great Curveball Throws in a row.
Let’s see the specific Día de Muertos 2023 Field Research tasks and the corresponding Pokémon encounters in Pokémon GO.
