Pokémon Go June Community Day will feature Slakoth

So cute! So lazy!

Julia Lee (she/her) is a guides producer, writing guides for games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Genshin Impact. She helped launch the Rift Herald in 2016.

The next Pokémon Go Community Day will be on Saturday, June 8 from 3-6 p.m. in your local time zone and will feature Slakoth.

This means Slakoth will spawn at a heavily increased rate and there will also be a higher chance to score the sloth-like Pokémon in its Shiny form.

Lures will also extend to three hours, typical of Community Days, and eggs will hatch in one-fourth the normal time. That being said, save all your Super Incubators for this day, as only eggs put in Incubators during the three-hour Community Day window will receive that perk.

Slakoth will also be getting a special move when it evolves into a Slaking, but it has yet to be announced. As with recent Community Days, we’ll likely find out a few days before the event.

Slaking isn’t a great attacker, but it’s a pretty solid defender, worth dropping into gyms. Being tankier than most Pokémon, a high-CP Slakoth can be used as an anchor in raids as well, giving your teammates enough time to heal up their ‘mons and jump back into battle.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
