Pokémon Go Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke Community Day guide

Pokémon GoGalarian Slowpoke Community Day:March 18th, from 2-5 pm in your locale time.

Like you would expect with an event like Community DayGalarian Slowpoke & Slowpoke There is a good chance that your spawn will be large and shiny. There are also several other bonuses and perks, which we’ve listed out below.

What is the best way to catch a shining Slowpoke

According to research conducted by Pokémon community site The Silph Road, Shiny rates on Community Days are about 1 in 24, which means that if you keep playing throughout the three-hour window, you should find quite a few shiny Pokémon.

If you’re short on time or Poké Balls, you can pop an IncenseYou can then move quickly. Tap each Slowpoke to check for shiny ones, running from any that aren’t shiny. Notably, any Slowpoke you’ve already tapped will face where your player is standing, so that should help identify which ones you may have already checked.

What Community Day move does Slowpoke’s evolution learn?

It will acquire the charged move Surf if it evolves from (Galarian] Slowpoke to (Galarian] Slowbro or (Galarian] Slowking between 2 and 10 p.m. local time).

Notably, from 2-10 p.m., the requirement that has you catch 30 poison-type Pokémon to evolve Galarian Slowpoke will be changed to 30 psychic-type Pokémon instead, so take advantage of that.

It is possible to upgrade it at a Community Day weekend in December if it’s not available for you to change it. If you don’t want to wait, you can use an Elite TM to get the move.

Is Slowbro or Slowking doing in the meta

If you are looking for a powerful Slowpoke to Mega Evolve, don’t bother. Mega Slowbro isn’t great and is outclassed by tons of other water- and psychic-type Pokémon in raids.

Trummler12, a Silph Road subreddit analyst notes that there will be very few gains for the Slow-family in Surf PvP. They don’t do well in PvP and it’ll likely stay that way.

What can I do to make Slowpoke Community Day a success?

These bonuses are available during Slowpoke Community Day

  • Tripled XP for catching Pokémon
  • Doubled candy for catching Pokémon
  • Doubled chance for level 31+ trainers to get XL candy from catching Pokémon
  • Three hours of incense are enough
  • The duration of the lure modules is three hours
  • Special photobombs slowpoke for taking photographs
  • Another special trade
  • Stardust price halved to trade

However, it is a good idea to try and get some Slowpoke and a Lucky Egg.

If you can Mega Evolve Alakazam, Slowbro, Gardevoir, Medicham, Latios, or Latias, you’ll score additional Slowpoke Candy per catch. If you Mega Evolve a water-type Pokémon, you’ll gain bonus catch candy for Slowpoke, but not Galarian Slowpoke, so we recommend going with a psychic-type.

Niantic will still be running four-star special raids between 5-10 p.m. where you can clear Slowpoke and they’ll spawn within a 300-meter area around the gym for thirty minutes. Remote raiding is not possible. If the usual 2-5 p.m. spawn increase doesn’t get you the Slowpoke you wanted, you can try raiding for another chance.
