"Pokémon Go" holds a special event as it is integrated with Pokémon Home, so "Pokémon Go" trainers can transfer to the other Home platform. The event will allow trainers to activate a Mystery Box, encounter a Shiny Meltan, get Pidgeot Mega Energy as reward for Timed Research. Players would also do Field Research tasks, which would let them encounter a shiny "Pokémon Go" Slowpoke.

The event starts at 8:00 a.m. (local time) of November 17 and ends at 10:00 p.m. (local time) of November 23. Here are all you need to catch the "Pokémon Go" Slowpoke.

'Pokemon Go' Slowpoke

Pink 'Pokémon" Slowpoke is like a crossbreed of a hippopotamus and a salamander. Its eyes are vacant and seem never focused. It has a rounded, tan muzzle and curled ears. Slowpoke has four legs with a single white claw on each leg. Slowpoke uses its long, tapering tail as a fishing lure. Although the tail breaks off often, it grows back.

Slowpoke is a dual type Water and Psychic Pokémon that was first introduced in Generation I. this creature evolves into Slowbro at Level 37 or into Slowking when it is traded while holding a King's Rock.

Slowpoke is a pure Psychic-type form In Galar. It was included in the recent Pokémon Sword and Shield's 1.1.0 patch. The Galarian Slowpoke evolves into Galarian Slowbro after being exposed to a Galarica Cuff. In contrast, when exposed to a Galarica Wreath, the creature evolves to Galarian Slowking.

As Niantic holds this new event, trainers can get hold of the Shiny Slowpoke. Here, we will discuss in details how to get the Shiny Slowpoke during this event and how to evolve it into Slowking or Slowbro.
