Description: A mostly pink Pokémon that is shaped like a cross between a salamander and a hippopotamus, Slowpoke never really seems focused on anything in particular. It's vacant expression and tendancy to completely forget what it is doing make it difficult for Trainers to really connect with this Pokémon. It spends most of its time loafing on riverbanks, dipping its tail into the water to fish for food. Its tail often breaks off but it can regenerate a new one. Slowpoke take an exceptionally long time to respond to stimuli and can take an entire day to even notice that its tail has been bitten.

In Galar, Slowpoke can be found on the Isle of Armor and in the Crown Tundra. There, a diet suplemented by Galarica seeds have led to a regional variation. Galarian Slowpoke are pure psychic types with yellow markings on their head and tails. Galarian Slowpokes are also know for sporadic moments of clarity, attributed to the Galarica seeds in their diet, but these moments are always short lived with the Slowpoke returning to its vacant self quickly.
