Pokemon Go: How to Evolve Galarian Slowpoke Into Galarian Slowbro
Players need to complete a special task before they can evolve this Pokemon.
Galarian Slowpoke was recently added to Pokemon Go as part of the game’s “A Very Slow Discovery Event.” While Galarian Slowpoke has two possible evolutions -- Galarian Slowbro and Galarian Slowking -- only Galarian Slowbro is available to collect in Pokemon Go as of this writing. Edit (10/18/2021): Galarian Slowking is now available in Pokemon Go. Check out our guide to learn how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking!
Here’s how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro in Pokemon Go!
When you tap on a Galarian Slowpoke in your collection, you’ll see the phrase “Adventure together to evolve” under the Pokemon’s Evolve button. When you tap the arrow to the left of this phrase, you’ll see the requirement you need to complete before you’ll be able to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro. This requirement says “Catch 30 Poison-type Pokemon.”
In order to complete this task, you’ll need to make Galarian Slowpoke your Buddy Pokemon and capture 30 Poison-type Pokemon while it is still your Buddy. Once you’ve captured 30 Poison-type Pokemon while Galarian Slowpoke is your Buddy, you can finally evolve the Pokemon into Galarian Slowbro.
Since you can only have one Buddy Pokemon at a time, you’ll need to complete this task (that is, you’ll need to catch 30 Poison-type Pokemon) each time you want to evolve a Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro.
And that’s all there is to it! Keep checking back with SuperParent, as we’ll make sure to let you know when Galarian Slowking is added to Pokemon Go, and how you can collect it!
