The second evolution in the Slowpoke line is finally in Pokemon Go in its Poison/Psychic-type Galar region form. Here’s how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking in Pokemon Go.

With the debut of the Halloween Mischief event on October 15, the hit mobile title is celebrating the spooky season. Not only does part one, Creepy Companions, bring new Research and a scary-themed Egg pool, but it also throws a new ‘mon into the mix.

Galarian Slowking, the evolution of Gen VIII’s Slowpoke, is here. But it’s not as simple as just evolving it, though – there’s some steps you need to do first.

The Galar ‘mon is a permanent addition and will stay even after the Halloween event is over.

How to evolve Galarian Slowking in Pokemon Go

Following the introduction of the Halloween Mischief event on October 15, to evolve Galarian Slowking from Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon Go, you need to do three things:

  • Set Galarian Slowpoke as your Buddy
  • Catch 30 Psychic-type Pokemon while it’s your Buddy
  • Earn 50 Galarian Slowpoke Candy so you can evolve it

Once you’ve done those, you’ll get the option to evolve when you click on the Gen VIII ‘mon.
