Slowpoke has long been one of the Pokémon franchises unofficial mascots. Whenever someone shows up extremely late to some meme or trend, you can expect to see images of Slowpoke floating around. It’s a silly little Pokémon with a silly face, but it deserves to be celebrated just as much as any other Pokémon. With that in mind, here’s an event guide for “A Very Slow Discovery” in Pokémon GO.
