Galarian Slowpoke and Slowbro in Pokemon Go

Galarian Pokemon are regional variants of previous-gen Pokemon that are exclusively found in the Galar region, popular for their unique appearance. Here’s how you can get Galarian Slowpoke and Galarian Slowbro in Pokemon Go.

New Pokemon are constantly released in Pokemon Go and accordingly, players can now catch over 700 distinctive creatures in the mobile game. However, the rarity of these Pokemon varies according to their usefulness in combat, type, region, evolution stage, and several other factors.

Galarian Slowpoke and Slowbro are two of the most sought-after Galarian Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Their original versions from the previous generations have always been popular, and the community went into a state of frenzy when Galarian Slowpoke debuted in 2021.

Here’s a guide to catching Galarian Slowpoke and obtaining Galarian Slowking and Galarian Slowbro in Pokemon Go.

Can you catch Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon Go?

The ‘A Very Slow Discovery’ event introduced Galarian Slowpoke to Pokemon Go and players could catch it by completing the Field Research tasks or raids. The event arrived on June 8, 2021, and was available until June 13, 2021.

Unfortunately, this was the only time when Galarian Slowpoke appeared in one-star raids. The event also offered two encounters with Galarian Slowpoke as a reward for completing these Field Research tasks:

  • Win a raid in under 60 seconds.
  • Evolve three Slowpoke.

You cannot get Galarian Slowpoke as of September 2022 because Galarian variants of Slowpoke, Slowbro, and Slowking haven’t returned since the end of A Very Slow Discovery event in 2021.

Having said that, Niantic might bring back the event with updated challenges and rewards soon so that newcomers also have a chance to catch their favorite slow Pokemon.

How to get Galarian Slowbro and Slowking in Pokemon Go

You can evolve Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon Go and get Galarian Slowbro and Slowking by fulfilling these requirements:

  • Galarian Slowbro – Collect 50 Slowbro candy and catch 30 Poison-type Pokemon with the desired Galarian Slowpoke as your buddy Pokemon.
  • Galarian Slowking – Collect 50 Slowbro candy and catch 30 Psychic-type Pokemon with the desired Galarian Slowpoke as your buddy Pokemon.

Luckily, you can catch any version of Slowpoke (Galarian and previous generations) to collect candy. Use Pinap berries to double the number of candies when you catch them.
