March’s Community Day in Pokemon Go is all about Slowpoke. The regular form of the Pokemon will be featured alongside Galarian Slowpoke, which is debuting its shiny version.

In the Pokemon Universe, certain Pokemon have regional variants. One of these Pokemon is Slowpoke and its variant from the Galar region. Both versions are the stars of March’s Community Day in Pokemon Go.

On March 18, from 2 pm to 5 pm local time, the spawn rate for Slowpoke will increase. Every Slowpoke that is caught and evolved during the event will know Charged Attack Surf.

Galarian Slowpoke event bonuses

Some of the bonuses available during the event areas follows.

  • 3x XP for catching Pokemon
  • 2x chance to receive candy XL, only for trainers level 31
  • Lure Modules last three hours
  • Incense lasts three hours
  • Trades require 50% less stardust

One of the biggest changes is the method to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro. On a regular day, players must catch 30 Poison-type Pokemon while having Galarian Slowpoke as a buddy. For the duration of the event, the requirement will change to 30 Psychic type Pokemon. This change is available until 10 pm local time.

Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke are both the four-star Raid Battle bosses for the day. Slowpoke is a dual Water and Psychic type. Pokemon Go has the perfect counter for it in dual Grass and Dark type Shiftry. The rest of the team can include Grass and Dark type, but Shiftry is definitely the star of the team.  

Another addition is the Special Research Story, Field Notes: Slow and Slower. Players must buy access to Field Notes: Slow and Slower for $1. The tickets for the Special Research are available on the in-game Shop now. Players can purchase tickets and send them as gifts to friends if they reached the Great Friends tier.
