What is smoke from a PokéStop in Pokémon GO?

After March 8, 2023, some of you may have encountered a strange phenomenon while playing Pokémon GO.

When you approach a PokéStop, something is emitting smoke.

Various kinds of smoke are coming out, such as red, purple, and green.

Why does smoke come out of PokéStops in Pokémon GO?

Smoke appears at PokéStops in Pokémon GO because of the "Color Festival" event.

The "Color Festival" will be held from 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, 2023.

"Megachalem" and "Hagi Gishiri" will make their first appearance at this event.

Smoke is one of the special colors and effects of this event; the presence of smoke does not mean that there is anything special about it.

This will be the second time the Festival of Colors will be held.

The first was held in March 2022, so if you started recently, you may not know about it.
