Nintendo has just revealed the first two expansions for Pokemon Sword and Shield: Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra. It’ll be some time before we can explore them properly, but you can already get a taste of what’s to come right now by grabbing a Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon Sword and Shield. This cute fella has a yellow mark over his head and tail, and Game Freak has already teased some kind of fun evolution for him. If you want one of your own, this guide will teach you how to get Galaraian Slowpoke in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
How to get Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon Sword and Shield
To get a Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you need to head over to Wedgehurst Station. Inside you’ll see the new rival for your version of the game (Klara for Pokemon Sword, Avery for Pokemon Shield). Head over and listen to them as they board the train to Armor and you’ll witness a cheeky Galarian Slowpoke wandering his way off the train.
Once the conversation is done, you can head outside the station to find and catch Galarian Slowpoke. While you can level them up, you can’t evolve the Galarian Slowpoke just yet. You’ll need to wait for Isle of Armor to release in June, where a new item will allow them to evolve and unveil the Galarian Slowbro and Slowking designs that Game Freak and Nintendo have been so keen to hide.
Looking for more information on what’s new in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Expansion Pass beyond Galarian Slowpoke? We have a breakdown of the new Legendary Pokemon coming, or if you want something different, here’s how to grab the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX demo. You’ll need something to occupy you until Isle of Armor arrives in June.
