Pokémon GO Día de Muertos 2022 – New Costumed Duskull, Mega Banette, and Origin Forme Giratina

Catch this new costumed variant!

Niantic has announced the Día de Muertos celebration for 2022. It is not the only event happening in November, but this one will bring exclusive costumed variants of the Duskull evolution line and a few other things for players to enjoy. The event will run from November 1, 2022, at 10am local time until November 2, 2022, at 8pm local time.

Duskull, Dusclops, and Dusknoir will all have costumes during this event. The Pokémon will be wearing cempasúchil crowns to celebrate Día de Muertos. These variants have not been seen in the game before, so players should be sure to grab them while they're around. Duskull can be caught in the wild, from Field Research, Incense, or Raids during the event, and then evolved into the other two Pokémon.

*Pokémon marked with an asterisk can be shiny when encountered.
