Slowpoke (Japaneseヤドン Yadon) is a dual-type Water/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Slowbro starting at level 37 or Slowking when traded holding a King's Rock.

Biology

Slowpoke is a pink creature that resembles a cross between a salamander and a hippopotamus. Its vacant eyes never seem focused, and it has curled ears and a rounded, tan muzzle. It has four legs, each of which ends in a single white claw. Its long, tapering tail has a white tip. This tail drips a sweet, sappy substance that is attractive to many species of fish. Slowpoke uses it as a lure for fishing, and it will grow back if cut off. In Alola, its tail is often dried and used in home cooked stews.

Slowpoke has notoriously dim intellect, and often forgets what it was doing. It takes a long time to respond to outside stimuli. For example, it can take up to five seconds to process pain and can take an entire day to notice when its tail has been bitten. Slowpoke is commonly found at the water's edge.

Major appearances

Slowpoke's first appearance was a brief one in Island of the Giant PokémonAsh's Pokémon asked it for help, but it didn't respond. It evolved into a Slowbro at the very end of the episode.

Slowpoke was seen in The Evolution Solution. Ash and his friends asked for the help of Professor Westwood V to help figure out why Slowpoke only evolved into Slowbro when a Shellder clamped on its tail (a question that was giving Professor Oak a headache). Westwood's Slowpoke evolved when a Shellder that Jessie caught clamped on to the Dopey Pokémon's tail.

A Shadow of a Drought revealed that Azalea Town considers Slowpoke sacred due to legends claiming that Slowpoke's yawning can summon rain.

Enlighten Up! introduced practitioners of a religion similar to Buddhism that see Slowpoke's empty head as a sign of enlightenment and worship by meditating along with Slowpoke and Slowbro.

In A Crowning Achievement, a group of Slowpoke were trying to reach a King's Rock to evolve into Slowking in order to help find a better habitat for the group. In this episode, a Slowpoke evolved into a Slowking when its head was bitten by a Shellder while it was wearing the King's Rock.

Generation VII  
Sun Its long tail often breaks off. It doesn't really feel any pain, though, and the tail grows back, so Slowpoke isn't particularly bothered.
Moon Alolan home cooking involves drying Slowpoke tails and then simmering them into a salty stew.

Trivia

 
Ken Sugimori artwork showing Slowpoke's striped underside
  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Slowpoke was originally known as "Slowmo".
  • The Japanese and international Pokémon Silver have different sprites for Slowpoke, with the Japanese versions having a fatter and striped belly similar to that which Slowbro and Slowking sport. It is unknown why this was changed. However, its striped underside is still partially visible in all of its Gold and Crystal sprites. This striped belly does not appear to be a true error, as it has been seen in artwork by Ken Sugimori, though it is from Generation I.
  • Like Mantyke, Slowpoke evolves when another Pokémon attaches to it; however, this was only seen in the anime. Proximity-based evolution such as requiring Mantyke and Remoraid to be in the same party were not introduced until Generation IV. Despite the fact that other Pokémon, such as Feebas, have been given additional evolution methods for evolving into the same Pokémon, Shellder still has no bearing on Slowpoke's evolution.
  • Slowpoke is the only Pokémon whose multiple evolutions have different total EV yieldsSlowbro has an EV yield of 2, while Slowking has an EV yield of 3.
  • Slowpoke is the only Pokémon whose National Pokédex number is the same as its weight in pounds when rounded.
    • However, Dodrio has this trait when its weight is measured in kilograms.
  • Despite numerous Pokédex entries stating its lack of response to a bite on its tail, in Pokémon Snap it is shown to quickly react to Shellder's bite. This may be due to Shellder's venom stimulating a quicker response, or simply an error or game mechanic to speed the process along.
  • The Pokémon Company posted a Slowpoke-themed reggae music video onto their Japanese channel titled What's Going on, Yadon?. The song was later dubbed and posted to the English-language channel under the title of Slowpoke Song.
  • Though the species has appeared repeatedly, no Slowpoke has ever been seen using an attack in the anime.
  • Slowpoke is the slowest Psychic-type Pokémon.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Due to its marine nature, shape and association with shellfish, Slowpoke may be based on various species of otter. It may also be based on a giant salamander or hippopotamus.

Its ability to regenerate its own tail if cut off refers to autotomy.

Name origin

Slowpoke is literally slowpoke, a term for someone who is slow. It can be also a combination of slow and poke (an abbreviation of Pokémon).

Yadon may be a combination of 宿借り yadokari (hermit crab) and donkan (thickheaded or stolid), whereas 鈍 don means slow, dull, or stupid. Alternatively, it may also derive from 宿主 yadonushi ([parasitic] host), based on its relationship with Shellder in its evolutions.

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese ヤドン Yadon From 宿借り yadokari or 宿主 yadonushi, plus 鈍 don
France Flag.png French Ramoloss Probably from ramolli and molosse
Spain Flag.png Spanish Slowpoke Same as English name
Germany Flag.png German Flegmon From phlegmatisch and Monster
Italy Flag.png Italian Slowpoke Same as English name
South Korea Flag.png Korean 야돈 Yadon Transliteration of Japanese name
Hong Kong Flag.png Cantonese Chinese 小呆獸 Síudāaisau Literally "Little slow-witted creature"
China and Taiwan Flags.png Mandarin Chinese 呆呆獸 / 呆呆兽 Dāidāishòu Means "Slow-witted creature"
