The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have revealed Galarian Slowking, the Hexpert Pokémon which will appear in next month’s The Crown Tundra downloadable content.

Galarian Slowking’s signature move is Eerie Spell, a Psychic-type special move in which it attacks with tremendous psychic power. If hit, your opponent won’t only take damage but lose 3 PP from the move that it last used.

The Hexpert Pokémon will also have a new Ability called Curious Medicine, which, when it enters the battlefield, will reset its allies’ stat changes.

A Shellder bite set off a reaction between the chemicals secreted by Galarian Slowpoke’s brain and the spices inside its body, causing Slowpoke to gain the Poison type as it evolved into Galarian Slowking. The Shellder’s intelligence also skyrocketed, giving the Shellder psychic powers that put other Psychic-type Pokémon to shame.

Galarian Slowking have been observed uttering incantations in order to communicate with each other. They also appear to chant mysterious spells when using moves in battle. Exactly what these Slowking are saying has yet to be fully understood.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
