Duskull Gets Its Flowers In The Pokemon Go Dia De Muertos Celebration November 1
Posted On October 18, 2022
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. Players will be able to find a special variant of Duskull wearing a cempasúchitl crown in the wild, and any players who evolve this special Duskull will receive Dusclops and Dusknoir also donning the crown.
The cempasúchitl flower that makes up the crown–also known in Mexico as flor de muerto, or “flower of the dead”–is a Mexican marigold that is widely associated with Dia de Muertos. Its name comes from the Aztec word zempoalxochitl, meaning “twenty” (zempoal) and “flower” (xochitl) which references its many petals.
