According to the PokéDex, Slowpoke’s evolution into Slowbro or Slowking is caused by a chemical reaction brought about when a Shellder bites it, secreting its natural toxins into the Slowpoke’s body. Normally, when a Shellder bites a Slowpoke’s head, the toxins stimulate its brain, making it smarter and turning it into a Slowking. However, in Galar, those Shellder toxins are apparently so potent that they increase the Sheller’s intellect instead, effectively rendering the Slowpoke its puppet. While you ruminate on those unsettling implications, here’s how to get a Galarian Slowking in Pokémon GO.

The option to evolve a Galarian Slowpoke into a Galarian Slowking, as well as Galarian Slowking itself, were added to the game alongside its currently-running Halloween event, likely due to the fact that Galarian Slowking’s gaze is incredibly creepy. To make this evolution happen, you’ll first need a Galarian Slowpoke, identified by their yellow heads, as well as 50 Slowpoke Candy, obtained from either catching Slowpokes or walking around with a Slowpoke as your buddy.

Pokémon GO: How to Get Galarian Slowking

To get a Galarian Slowking in Pokémon GO:

  1. Obtain a Galarian Slowpoke and 50 Slowpoke Candy
  2. Make the Galarian Slowpoke your Buddy and catch 30 Psychic Type Pokémon
  3. The option to evolve into a Galarian Slowking should appear on the Galarian Slowpoke’s details

If you attempt to evolve the Slowpoke right now, it’ll just become a Galarian Slowbro. As such, we need to get it accustomed to its soon-to-be Psychic typing. To do this, make the Galarian Slowpoke your Buddy and catch at least 30 Psychic Type Pokémon in the wild. They can all be the same kind of Pokémon, but the number is non-negotiable.

Once you’ve got the Candy and have caught 30 Psychic Types, check Galarian Slowpoke’s page, and you should see the option to evolve into a Galarian Slowking.
