You'll run into new characters from the upcoming Pokemon Sword & Shield Expansion Passes, Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra, which are slated for release in June and Fall of 2020 respectively.


Shortly after meeting the new characters, the special slowpoke will wander into the station behind them and you'll have the chance to battle and catch it.


Galarian slowpoke is only at level 12, so be sure to bring some lower-level Pokemon with you, or Pokemon that know great moves for catching Pokemon like false swipe, sleep powder and thunder wave.



You won't be able to evolve your Galarian slowpoke just yet, but should be able to once the new Expansions release.


Galarian Slowpoke

"The Slowpoke of the Galar region used to eat the seeds of a certain plant that grew in their habitat. These seeds were in fact Galarica seeds, used to this day as an essential spice for cooking in the Galar region. The Slowpoke in Galar built up particles of this spice in their bodies over several generations, eventually gaining the unique appearance and behavior they are known for today. Galarian Slowpoke spend their days wallowing on seashores and riverbanks without thinking about anything in particular. Occasionally, they might get a very sharp look in their eyes, but they will soon revert to their zoned-out expression. It's thought that this behavior is caused by the accumulated Galarica particles stimulating Galarian Slowpoke's brain, resulting in it thinking of something tremendous-only for the Galarian Slowpoke to immediately forget what it had just thought of."
