Note: This was translated with Google Translate from the Brazilian announcement

Every year, during this season, people from different parts of the world come together to celebrate Carnival. The festivities and street blocks of this period are some of the largest recorded annually, with millions of people maintaining traditions that originated centuries ago in Europe. Currently, these parties are extremely popular in Latin America, the Caribbean and, especially, in Brazil!

In 2021 we will not be able to celebrate Carnival with our friends and families at parties and blocks as we are used to. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate with our Pokémon and connect virtually. So we are incredibly excited to present the first Carnival Celebration at home on Pokémon GO!

This event will take place in the following regions: Latin America and the Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Granada, Guyana French, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Panama, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, St. Lucia, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, and Uruguay) .
