Galarian Slowking Appears in The Crown Tundra Expansion

Time to check out another Galarian Slowpoke evolution. Following the September 29, 2020 Pokemon presentation about The Crown Tundra expansion for Pokemon Sword and Shield, the official website updated with some additional details. Among them is a page for Galarian Slowking, the evolved form you can acquire after downloading and exploring in the add-on.

Unlike the normal Slowking, which is a dual psychic and water-type character, this is a poison and psychic-type. It still wears the Shellder on its head like a crown, just like the normal variant, but it has a more ominous appearance and is considered the “Hexpert” Pokemon.

There’s a new ability and move to go along with this version of the character. Curious Medicine triggers when you send a Galarian Slowking into a battle. If it’s a double battle with another one of your characters nearby, then any stat changes caused by opposing characters’ moves or abilities are removed and your buddy’s stats return to normal. The new move is the psychic Eerie Spell, which cuts an opponent’s most recently used move by 3PP and deals damage.

It’s important to remember that Galarian Slowpoke evolves in different ways than a standard one. While in the normal game, people could level it up or use a King’s Rock to trigger the Slowbro or Slowking evolutions, you need special items in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s expansions. We don’t know the Galarian Slowking method yet, but a Galarian Slowbro needed a Galarica Cuff made from Galarica Twigs found on the Isle of Armor.

Here are some of the first screenshots of the new Slowking shared on the official site.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are available for the Nintendo Switch. The Crown Tundra expansion will launch on October 22, 2020.
