For the first time ever in Pokemon GO, Dia De Muertos is being celebrated as an in-game event! With every event comes rewards players can earn, so here’s what a player can unlock during this event. 

Dia De Los Muertos is a real-world Latin American holiday that celebrates those who are no longer here. Keeping in tune with the holiday, Pokemon GO is currently in a two-day event featuring flower, skeleton, and spirit-themed Pokemon. On top of that, there are lots of opportunities for players to get all kinds of goodies, and they aren’t that difficult. 

Pokemon GO Dia De Muertos Rewards: How to Get

One way to get rewards from this event is to complete limited-time research tasks, that feature event Pokemon when completed:

  • Make a Great Throw - Sunkern
  • Make a Nice Curveball Throw - Cubone or Roselia
  • Win a Trainer Battle in the Go Battle League - Alolan Marowak

Another challenge players can tackle is the limited-time Collection Challenge for this event! To complete this challenge, players must capture the following Pokemon before the event ends to earn the prize:

  • Sunkern
  • Roselia
  • Murkrow
  • Cubone
  • Houndour
  • Sableye
  • Sunflora
  • Drifloon

Completing this challenge will grant the player an Incense, a Poffin, and an opportunity to encounter the super-rare Bug/Ghost Pokémon Shedinja. 

On top of these various missions, there are actually quite a few freebies the player can claim right off the bat. Anyone who participates can automatically unlock the Dia De Los Muertos avatar t-shirt, and there’s a free event box with some items players can redeem during the event. And of course, there are lots of uncommon Pokemon that players can have at.

The Dia De Muertos event is scheduled to end on Nov. 2 at 11 p.m. ET.
