Nanoblock Slowpoke Can Shift Between Standard and Galarian Forms

A new Pokemon Nanoblock set has been announced, and it has a neat twist to it. The Nanoblock Slowpoke comes with enough pieces to depict both of its forms. You can build a standard Slowpoke, which has been around since 1996. Or, if you use the optional pieces, you can build a Galarian Slowpoke, which debuted in 2020 as part of the Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor expansion. [Thanks, Bellicife!]

A diagram was released showing how this shift works, while the general gallery of Nanoblock Slowpoke pictures offers other customization options. The set includes enough yellow bricks to swap between a normal or Galarian version of the character. You can also put it together in such a way that the Slowpoke’s tail is posed flat or curved up in the air.

Here’s the full gallery showing the completed kit.

In addition to the Slowpoke, a second kit will be available the same day. It’s a Galarian Farfetch’d. However, its kit only comes with what you need to build that form of the character. There are no standard Farfetch’d pieces included. Though, this is likely due to an official kit for that variant having launched back in 2015.

Here’s a better look at the Nanoblock Galarian Farfetch’d.

The Nanoblock Slowpoke set will be available in August 2020 and cost 1,300円. It is a 2/5 difficulty level kit. The Nanoblock Galarian Farfetch’d will also be out in August 2020 and cost 1,300円.
