What is the Pokémon GO Special Weekend?
Special Weekend is an exclusive game event that you can enter using a Ticket that can only be obtained through a participating Pokémon GO sponsor, either physically or digitally. The Ticket contains a code that you can redeem on our Offer Redemption site . Once you have redeemed it, you will be able to enjoy the event anywhere within Mexico during the event period.
Days and hours: The event will take place on Saturday, November 7 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm local time. You can only experience the event bonuses during this period of time, and only within Mexico. Only players who receive a 7-Eleven Mexico code during the distribution period and redeem it online will be able to participate.
- A Temporary Field Investigation will be available to ticket holders during event hours. These temporary tasks will reward you with encounters of Pokémon such as Chansey, Sunkern, Spoink, Bronzor, Gible, and Sewaddle.
