Pokémon Go doesn't normally issue a trailer for its monthly Community Day events, but then June's big day stars something of a fan favourite.

Slakoth, the sloth Pokémon, will be available to catch everywhere and its Shiny variant will become available for the first time.

The sleepy creature eventually evolves into Slaking, one of the beefiest Pokémon in the game - even if it's not hugely useful for player battles due to its lethargic nature. It's best left in gyms as a bulky deterrent.

As previously announced, June's Community Day will take place on Saturday 8th. Once again, you'll want to play 3pm-6pm local time, wherever you are in the world.

As ever, lures will last for three hours. Incubators will be four times as effective. Here is the rather cute trailer:
