The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have revealed more about Galarian Slowbro in the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass content.
Category: Hermit Crab Pokémon
Weight: 155.4 lbs.
Ability: Quick Draw
A Shellder bite set off a chemical reaction with the spices inside Galarian Slowpoke’s body, causing Galarian Slowbro to gain the Poison type. The Shellder that’s latched onto Slowbro sometimes unconsciously bites down harder on Slowbro’s arm, causing an itch that drives Slowbro to start wildly swinging its arm around and smashing its surroundings.
With a speed that puts even the quickest reflexes to shame, Slowbro readies its Shellder and makes poisonous liquid shoot from the Shellder’s tip. This is Shell Side Arm, a Poison-type special move that may poison the target. The move inflicts either physical or special damage depending on which will damage the target more.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
