Second Slakoth Pokémon GO Community Day successfully concludes with no widespread issues in Europe, the Middle East and Africa

Last month, Pokémon GO Community Day took place on Saturday, June 8, 2019, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in your local time zone. Not only did you have the opportunity to catch plenty of Slakoth during the three-hour span, but if you evolved Vigoroth (the evolved form of Slakoth) into Slaking during or up to one hour after the event, your Slaking learned the special move Body Slam, which it is normally unable to learn. This move was available only to Slaking evolved during Community Day. Shiny Slakoth, Shiny Vigoroth and Shiny Slaking have also made their Pokémon GO debuts. Additionally, during the event, Lures lasted for three hours and Eggs placed in Incubators hatched four times faster.
