Attention Pokémon GO trainers! The March 2023 Community Day is happening this Saturday, March 18, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., local time. It's going to feature Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke, both appearing more frequently in the wild. For lucky trainers, they may even get to encounter a Shiny Galarian Slowpoke.

Trainers able to evolve Slowpoke or Galarian Slowpoke during the event can get:

  • Slowbro.
  • Galarian Slowbro.
  • Slowking.
  • Galarian Slowking.

Enjoy the Bonuses

For the Community Day, trainers can enjoy these bonuses:

  • 3× XP for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive Candy XL from catching Pokémon.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event last for three hours.
  • Incense activated during the event lasts for three hours. Does not include Daily Adventure Incense.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise.

Trainers can also enjoy these bonuses, which are active until 10:00 p.m. on Saturday:

  • One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of two for the day.
  • Trades will require 50% less Stardust.

A Psychic Evolution

Typically, when evolving a Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro, trainers need to catch 30 Poison-type Pokémon while having Galarian Slowpoke as their buddy. But for this Saturday, from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (local time), trainers need to catch 30 Psychic types while adventuring with Galarian Slowpoke.

Bonus Raid Battles

The Community Day event only lasts for three hours, and after it has ended, trainers can still enjoy some activities. From 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (local time), trainers can take on special four-star Raid Battles, featuring Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke.

Trainers who get a win in one of these raids make more Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke appear around the Gym which hosted the raid for 30 minutes,

By the way, trainers can only join these raids if they have Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes can't be used for these Raid Battles.

Do the Research

Timed Research focused on Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke is available from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (local time). Those who complete tasks related to catching these Pokémon can earn as many as four King’s Rocks.

Meanwhile, the March Community Day–themed Field Research has trainers try to catch Slowpoke and earn rewards like King’s Rocks, Stardust, and Ultra Balls, to name a few.

Pokémon GO is available on Android and iOS.
