Slowpoke, Slowbro, and Slowking are all obtainable in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. None of these Water/Psychic-type Pokemon are version exclusives. This means you can try to catch all three of them if you want to add them to your team.

This Pokemon Scarlet and Violet guide will cover all the locations to find Slowpoke and Slowbro in the wild, all relevant raid rarities, as well as evolution requirements.

Note: This guide is solely about the Kantonian versions of these three Pokemon.

Slowpoke is available in a fair number of areas within Paldea. Its spawn rate ranges from 30% to 60%. The Water/Psychic-type creature most commonly spawns near the lakes shown in the orange parts of the map above.

Alternatively, you can obtain Slowpoke by completing 2-star Tera Raids. However, there is no guarantee that you will get one in these Tera Raids, but they are still an option to consider.

You can also get Slowpoke via breeding, although does require you to have the Pokemon or its evolutions already.

Slowpoke's base stats are:

  • HP: 90
  • Attack: 65
  • Defense: 65
  • Sp. Attack: 40
  • Sp. Def: 40
  • Speed: 15

There are two main ways to catch Slowbro in the wild:

  1. Find it in the northwestern part of Paldea, pictured above as orange squares.
  2. Battle it in a 5-star Raid.

Slowbro spawns uncommonly in the locations on the map above, ranging from a 15% to 25% chance (based on the biome). If you wish to get the Pokemon from a 5-star raid, note that it will be at Level 75, meaning that the battle may be difficult for inexperienced trainers.

Alternatively, one can get Slowbro by evolving its pre-evolution at Level 37.

  • HP: 95
  • Attack: 75
  • Defense: 110
  • Sp. Attack: 100
  • Sp. Def: 80
  • Speed: 30

How to get Slowking in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Unfortunately, Slowking is not available in the wild in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The only way to get it is via a 5-star or 6-star Tera Raid.

There is no guarantee that you will get Slowking in these raids. Therefore, you will have to be patient to see if your current selection of Tera Raids features the Pokemon.

If you're fortunate, you will get to fight a Level 75 (5-star raid) or a Level 90 (6-star raid) Slowking. Keep in mind that if you catch the 6-star variant, its level will be reduced to Level 75.

You can also trade a Slowpoke holding King's Rock in order to evolve it into Slowking. The only issue is that you will need to find somebody you can trust when it comes to trading it back.

Slowking's base stats are:

  • HP: 95
  • Attack: 75
  • Defense: 80
  • Sp. Attack: 100
  • Sp. Def: 110
  • Speed: 30

That's the end of this Pokemon Scarlet and Violet guide. Good luck catching one of these Water/Psychic-type creatures in the games.
