Sandshrew Makes a Slash during Pokémon GO’s March Community Day

The Mouse Pokémon burrows its way into the spotlight with themed research and activities.

Sandshrew bounces its way into Pokémon GO‘s March Community Day on March 13, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. Throughout the day, both the Ground-type Sandshrew and the Ice- and Steel-type Alolan Sandshrew will appear more frequently in the wild. Roll through March Community Day like a pro with a new Special Research story, opportunities for Sandslash to learn a special Charged Attack, and special event bonuses. During Community Day, Incense and Lure Modules will last three hours, and Eggs placed in Incubators will hatch at just a quarter of the usual distance.

Evolve Sandshrew during the event or up to two hours after its conclusion to obtain a Sandslash that knows a special Charged Attack. Ground-type Sandslash will learn the Dark-type Charged Attack Night Slash, and Alolan Sandslash will know the Ghost-type Charged Attack Shadow Claw.

A Community Day–exclusive Special Research story—titled Gritty and Glacial—will be available for US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency) through the Pokémon GO in-game shop. If you need extra Poké Balls to catch more Sandshrew throughout the day, you can pick up 30 Ultra Balls at no cost during the event in the shop. Trainers with PokéCoins to spare can purchase a Community Day Box containing 30 Ultra Balls, three Super Incubators, five Lucky Eggs, and one Elite Charged TM for 1,280 PokéCoins.

Roll over to Pokémon GO and start catching those Sandshrew, Trainers!
