Pokémon GO Día de Muertos Event

Pokémon GO events are coming thick and fast and if the Halloween bonuses weren't enough for you, the Día de Muertos event that kicks off November will give you one last chance to capture some spooky monsters.

Día de Muertos is a South and Central American tradition in which people celebrate the spirits of the dead returning to earth for one day. It's often paralleled with Halloween, but the two are very different holidays, admittedly celebrated at the same time of year.
