Slowking (ヤドキング Yadokingu) is a Water/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. It has a Galarian Form introduced in Generation VIII that is a Poison/Psychic type.

Biology

Physiology

Johtonian Form

Shellder on Slowking's head

Slowking is a bipedal Pokémon with a backward facing Shellder latched onto its head. It is primarily pink, with a pale yellow muzzle and scaled belly. Its feet and hands each have a single clawed digit, while the hands also have a clawless thumb. Around its neck is a spiny ruff with alternating red and white stripes. The backward facing Shellder on its head has a spiral shape with two horns near the base. A red gem resides in the center of the Shellder.

Galarian Form

Galarian Slowking in Pokémon Camp

Galarian Slowking's appearance is a result of an item from the Crown Tundra. The main difference is that it has gained purple markings on its forehead and tail, the red-white spiny ruff is now dark and light purple and longer around its neck. Unlike Johtonian Slowking's appearance, the Shellder on its head has a more round off shape near the base of the crown with Shellder covering up more of its head. A green gem resides in the center of the Shellder.

Behavior

Johtonian Form

Unlike Slowpoke and Slowbro, Slowking is much cleverer and royal. Shellder's bite releases venom into Slowpoke's brain, causing a chemical chain-reaction that unlocks superior intelligence and extraordinary power. More venom is injected into Slowking every time it yawns. The more venom the Shellder releases, the more intelligent Slowking will become. However, if the Shellder on its head comes off, it will forget everything it has learned. Slowking's intelligence can match that of a human and it constantly attempts to learn more. Its inspiration and intuition are also highly developed, and Slowking is able to stay calm in any situation and plan situations with effective results. As seen in PJ026, if the crown were to land on a different creature's head, the new wearer starts to act strangely until the crown is removed.

In the anime, it can understand and speak the human language. According to The Complete Pokémon Pocket Guide, it has such an easy-going personality that it is never stressed. Slowking is rarely found in the wild, though it can be found by the water's edge. It has been seen eating seaweed and drinking coconut milk. In Alola, Slowking occasionally matches wits with Oranguru by the beach.

Galarian Form

A Shellder bite set off a reaction between the chemicals secreted by Galarian Slowpoke's brain and the Galarica particles inside its body, causing Slowpoke to gain the Poison type when evolving. This has also caused the Shellder's intellegence to massively increase, giving it psychic powers to control the Slowking.

Galarian Slowking have been observed uttering incantations to communicate with each other, and also chanting mysterious spells when using moves in battle. However, it is yet to be fully understood what Slowking are actually saying.

Evolution

Slowking is one of the two evolved forms of Slowpoke, the other being Slowbro. Kantonian Slowpoke evolves into Johtonian Slowking when being traded while holding a King's Rock.

Galarian Slowking evolves from Galarian Slowpoke using a Galarica Wreath. Like Johtonian Slowking, it is one of Galarian Slowpoke's final forms, the other being Galarian Slowbro.

In the anime, Slowpoke evolves into Slowking when wearing a King's Rock and having the rock bitten by a Shellder.

Trivia

  • In the anime, Slowking is one of the few Pokémon who talks like a human without telepathy, along with Team Rocket's Meowth.
  • It is said if the Shellder on Slowking's head is removed it will forget everything it has learned and revert to Slowpoke, in the same way Slowbro will revert to Slowpoke if the Shellder on its tail is removed. This has yet to be seen.
  • In Pokémon The Movie 2000 - The Power of One Slowking breaks the fourth wall by saying in reply to Team Rocket thinking no one saw them be good "Yeah they did, they are right there!" and looks towards the audience.
  • Slowking is one of the 11 Generation II Pokémon that is an evolution of a Generation I Pokémon.
  • Galarian Slowking and Galarian Slowbro are the only Pokémon with a Poison/Psychic type combination.
  • The Galarian form of Slowking's pre-evolution is the only single-type Pokémon that gains a secondary type upon evolution, and that the secondary type becomes the primary type.
  • Despite having king in it's name, Slowking can be male or female.

Origin

Slowking, just like Slowpoke and Slowbro appears to be based on semi-aquatic mammals such as hippopotamuses and otters. It also resembles a king with the Shellder resembling a crown and its neck tufts resembling a ruff.

Galarian Slowking appears to be based off of witch doctors or wizards, now with its Shellder crown resembling a warlock's hat and its tuft resembling a robe, clothing often depicted on warlocks.

Etymology

Slowking is a combination of the words slow and king.
