With the start of the “A Very Slow Discovery” event, Galarian Slowpoke made its long-awaited debut in Pokémon GO. Players will frantically catch as many as they can during and after the 5-day event. But once you've had enough, you'll probably want to know what to do with it next. Here's how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro and Galarian Slowking in Pokémon GO.
How to Evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro
The only evolution available at the start of Galarian Slowpoke will be Galarian Slowbro. Almost all evolutions of Pokémon GO use candies from individual species. That's true here too, but there's another step. Looking at all of your newly captured Galarian Slowpoke, you'll likely see the notice to adventure together to evolve. For this species, that means catching certain types of Pokemon with your buddy.
To evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro, you must first make the desired Pokémon your friend. Tap the friend in the bottom left to open the menu, scroll down and choose to swap friends. Choose the Galarian Slowpoke you possibly want to evolve. Now all you have to do is catch 30 Poison-type Pokemon while it's still your buddy. Once you catch them, you can turn him into a Galarian Slowbro at any time by spending 50 candies, whether the Slowpoke is still your buddy or not. But what if you want to go the other way with your Slowpoke evolution?
How to Evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking
Galarian Slowking will not be available in Pokémon GO for a while, so currently you cannot evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking. However, thanks to some exploration of the code by the community, it seems that we already know the requirement of the adventure together. If you want to evolve to Slowking rather than Slowbro, you'll only have to catch 30 Psychic-type Pokemon instead of Dark-type. Everything else above applies, including making Galarian Slowpoke your buddy before catching the Psychic-type Pokemon. However, you'll have to wait until Galarian Slowking is officially added to the game, or you'll just be wasting your time. The game won't keep track until they're actually added, so be patient for now and be prepared when they're introduced.
And that's how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro and Galarian Slowking in Pokémon GO.
