Slowpoke (Japanese: ヤドン Yadon) is a Water/Psychic-type Pokémon. Slowpoke first appeared in Pokémon Episode 17 - Island of the Giant Pokémon.

In Pokémon Gold and Silver, Pokémon Crystal, and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Team Rocket entered Slowpoke Well under orders of Executive Proton, and started cutting off the tails of the Slowpokes living there. They then started to sell the tails at high prices. They were eventually stopped (and the Slowpoke's tails grew back). Nobody can tell when a Slowpoke is thinking, or if it ever does think. Its specialty is fishing with its tail.


Slowpoke is a mostly pink Pokémon that doesn't look much like a water type Pokémon at all. It stands on four legs, and has a long tail that is used like a fishing pole. It's mouth is a pale brown color.

Special abilities

Slowpoke can have the abilities Oblivious or Own Tempo. Oblivious prevents Slowpoke from being infatuated. Own Tempo prevents Slowpoke from being confused. Although slow, Slowpoke is skilled at fishing with its tail, and it does not feel pain if its tail is bitten. It is also implied that their tails can grow back if it is cut off or removed (either during battle, fishing, and/or occasionally by human's).

According to Pokémon Gold and Silver, Pokémon Crystal, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, SlowpokeTails are worth a lot of money (hence Team Rocket's takeover of the Slowpoke Well) and are considered a delicacy.


Slowpoke evolves into Slowbro at level 37. Slowpoke evolves into Slowking when traded while it holds King's Rock. In the anime, Slowpoke's evolution is quite different. To become Slowbro a Shellder must latch onto Slowpokes tail. To become Slowking a Slowpoke must put on a King's Rock and have a Shelder clamp onto it.
