Slowpoke Community Day is fast approaching, and as a dedicated Pokémon GO trainer, you’re probably wondering how you can best prepare for this event. Slowpoke Community Day is a special event in which trainers can catch more Slowpokes than usual, earn bonuses, and evolve their Slowpokes into Slowbros or Slowkings with exclusive moves. Let’s talk about how we can prepare for Slowpoke Community Day in Pokémon GO.
Mark Your Calendar – Mar 18
The first step in preparing for Slowpoke Community Day is to know when it will be taking place. The event will occur on Saturday, March 18th, 2023, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM local time. Make sure to mark your calendars, set alarms, and plan accordingly, so you don’t miss out on any of the fun.
Stock up on Poké Balls and Berries
During Slowpoke Community Day, there will be an increased number of Slowpokes spawning in the wild, so it’s essential to have plenty of Poké Balls and Berries on hand to catch them all. Consider visiting Pokéstops and Gyms in the days leading up to the event to stock up on items, especially if you’re running low on supplies.
I would recommend having over 150 Pinap Berries and over 300 balls by Friday evening. You will need to use Pinap Berries every chance you get to collect as much candy as you can possibly get. This will really help with evolving and powering up the best Slowpokes that you will catch that day.
During this event, you will earn double candy for all your catches. So be sure to further maximize that with the Pinap Berries. Raiding during this event will also prove to be very fruitful.
Lures & Incense Ready
As with any Community Day event, there will be special items available to aid you in your quest to catch and evolve Slowpokes. Make sure to equip incense to maximize your chances of success. Consider using Lure Modules to attract more Pokémon to your location. Also, make sure to use Star Pieces to increase your chances of receiving more Stardust.
Incense is an absolute must on this day and will greatly increase your chances of catching Shiny Slowpokes. With the different evolution trees for Slowpoke (including the Galarian versions), you will certainly want plenty of Slowpokes to evolves into the different Slowkings and Slowbros.
Know the Exclusive Move
During Slowpoke Community Day, trainers will be able to evolve their Slowpokes into Slowbros or Slowkings with an exclusive move that cannot be obtained through regular evolution. Make sure to research which moves will be available and evolve the best ones or the shiny ones that you’ve caught. You don’t want to miss out on the chance to obtain a powerful and rare move that you normally would not be able to get.
Plan Your Locations
To make the most out of Slowpoke Community Day, it’s essential to plan where you will be playing beforehand. Consider visiting areas with a high concentration of Pokéstops and Gyms, and prioritize areas with water-type Pokémon biomes. Slowpokes are more likely to spawn near bodies of water, so consider visiting lakes, rivers, and beaches for the best chance of success.
Join a Local Pokémon GO Community
One of the best ways to prepare for Slowpoke Community Day is to join a local Pokémon GO community. By joining a local Discord, Facebook, or WhatsApp group, you can stay up to date on the latest event news, share tips and strategies, and coordinate with other trainers to maximize your chances of catching and evolving Slowpokes. This will also allow you to make trades and join Gym Raids together for double the candy during the event.
Trades will also cost 50% less Stardust which is huge for those of you who want to make those special trades that would normally cost your 40,000 Stardust!

Slowpoke Community Day is an exciting event that offers trainers a unique opportunity to catch and evolve powerful Pokémon with exclusive moves.
