Just when you think you’ve seen all Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, have to offer, GAME FREAK reveal even more Pokémon for Galar and one of them is available now! So join us for another “Who’s That Pokémon?” and this time, we’re tackling the Dopey Pokémon Galarian Slowpoke.
Pokémon: Galarian Slowpoke
Classification: Dopey Pokémon
Weight: 79.4 lbs
Ability: Gluttony/Own Tempo
Description: The Slowpoke of the Galar region used to eat the seeds of a certain plant that grew in their habitat, as this was their favorite food. These seeds were in fact Galarica seeds, used to this day as an essential spice for cooking. The Slowpoke in Galar built up particles of this spice in their bodies over several generations, eventually gaining the unique appearance and behavior they are known for today.
Galarian Slowpoke spend their days wallowing on seashores and riverbanks without thinking about anything in particular. Once in a while they might get a very sharp look in their eyes, but they will soon revert back to their zoned-out expression. It’s thought that this behavior is caused by the accumulated Galarica particles stimulating Galarian Slowpoke’s brain, resulting in it thinking of something tremendous—only for the Galarian Slowpoke to immediately forget what it had just thought of.
Galarian Slowpoke can evolve into Galarian Slowbro if you use an item that can be found on The Isle of Armor. It can also evolve into Galarian Slowking if you use an item that can be found in The Crown Tundra.
