First introduced in the Pokémon Sword and Shield DLC, Galarian Slowpoke will be debuting in the mobile title Pokémon GO next week. Check out the official details:
Sometimes the best adventure is a slow one. In the upcoming A Very Slow Discovery event, you’ll be able to take inspiration from the very same Pokémon that inspired us: Slowpoke. A Very Slow Discovery will feature Slowpoke, Galarian Slowpoke, Mega Slowbro, and Galarian Slowbro! Some of the other Pokémon appearing during this event are quite slow and active as well.

- Galarian Slowpoke will be making its Pokémon GO debut! You can evolve it into Galarian Slowbro by catching 30 Poison-type Pokémon when it’s your buddy. We’ve heard reports that Galarian Slowking is taking its time to make its Pokémon GO appearance. You could even say its arrival might be quite…slow.

- Slowpoke, Slakoth, Gulpin, Spoink, and more will be appearing more often in the wild. If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Slowbro or Vigoroth!

Great time to ask, what do you think of Galarian Slowpoke and its evolutions? Personally, I thought they were great regional forms and some of my favorites from Gen VIII. Share your opinions in the comments or hop on Discord for more Pokémon discussions!
