Pokemon Go has finally seen the debut of Galarian Slowpoke, and many trainers will be wondering if (and how) they can evolve it to get a Galarian Slowbro or Galarian Slowking.

The Season of Discovery is here, and kicks off with the A Very Slow Discovery event, which puts the focus on the beloved Kanto region ‘mon Slowpoke with exclusive Field Research and the long-awaited Mega Slowbro!

Perhaps most exciting, though, is the Pokemon Go debut of Galarian Slowpoke. The regional variant first appeared in Pokemon Sword & Shield on the Nintendo Switch and comes with yellow markings that really make it stand out.

Trainers are also able to evolve it into Galarian Slowbro, and at a later stage, Galarian Slowking. Here’s everything you need to know about catching Galarian Slowpoke in the game and evolving it to the Pokemon of your choice.

You can catch plenty of Galarian Slowpoke during the Slow Discovery event.

With the A Very Slow Discovery event taking place from Tuesday, June 8 at 10 AM, until Sunday, June 13 at 8 PM, trainers now have plenty of opportunities to catch Galarian Slowpoke and evolve it.

The main way you’ll get Galarian Slowpoke is in 1-Star Raids, which should be easy battles for any trainer to win. You can also earn encounters with Galarian Slowpoke by completing A Very Slow Discovery field research tasks.

Evolving your Galarian Slowpoke is quite a time-consuming task, regardless of which evolution you choose. As well as collecting enough Candy, you’ll also need to catch 30 of a specific Pokemon type.

Here’s how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro in Pokemon Go:

  1. Catch a Galarian Slowpoke and make it your Buddy.
  2. Earn at least 50 Galarian Slowpoke Candy. One way to do this is to use Pinap Berries when out catching Slowpokes (which doubles the amount you receive upon a successful catch), but you can also walk with the ‘mon as your buddy to earn candies every 3km, too.
  3. Catch at least 30 Poison-type Pokemon with Galarian Slowpoke as your Buddy. Using a Mossy Lure can help attract more Poison-types.
  4. Now you can evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro!

Unfortunately, Galarian Slowking is not currently available in Pokemon Go. Niantic have joked that it is “taking its time” to make its debut in the game, so you’ll have to settle for Galarian Slowbro for now.
