Slowbro (Japanese: ヤドラン Yadoran) is a Water/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Shellbro

Shellder

When Shellder bites Slowpoke's tail, it is now bipedal. Its feet are more muscular, and its belly has scales to protect it, compared to Slowpoke.

Special abilities

Slowbro can have the ability Oblivious or the ability Own Tempo. Oblivious prevents Slowbro from getting infatuated. Own Tempo prevents Slowbro from getting confused. Slowpoke can evolve into a Slowbro if a Shellder bites on its tail. This triggers Slowpoke's evolution, and allows for the Slowpoke to stand on its hind legs (the Shellder acts as a counterbalance). It may be possible that if the Shellder was knocked off of Slowbro's tail, it would turn back into a Slowpoke. It has various moves such as Calm Mind, Slack Off, Surf, Ice Beam, Psychic, Flamethrower, and Grass Knot.

Evolution

Slowbro does not evolve. Slowbro evolves from Slowpoke starting at level 37. Instead, it can further evolve into Mega Slowbro using its Mega Stone. Slobrow gets this mega evolution in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Trivia

  • Of Pokemon evolution this one has the least amount of visible changes, perhaps to reflect the laziness suggested in its previous form's name.
  • Its Mega Evolution shows Shelder growing larger, swallowing up its entire body. The end result is Slowbro resembling a spinning top, balancing on its tail.
