Duskull Gets Its Flowers In The Pokemon Go Dia De Muertos Celebration November 1

Dia de Muertos, a holiday which is celebrated throughout Latin and South America as a day to honor those who have passed, will be recognized in Pokemon Go with a 34-hour event featuring a special costumed Pokemon.

Duskull will be the featured Pokemon throughout the event, which begins November 1 at 10 AM local time and runs until November 2 at 8 PM local time.
