Pokémon Sword and Shield have received a new update today adding Galarian Slowpoke. Here’s how to capture and evolve this Pokémon.
Galarian Slowpoke is a new Pokémon that will be available to capture in the upcoming expansion for Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield. There are two different story expansions that will be released for Sword and Shield beginning first with The Isle of Armor in June 2020. This expansion will add 100 new Pokémon to capture in the game.
Galarian Slowpoke can only be captured once you have download the latest update for Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield. After you have updated the game, you can capture Galarian Slowpoke. This Pokémon can be further evolved into Galarian Slowbro and Galarian Slowking.
Galarian Slowpoke and evolve into Galarian Slowbro if you use an item that can be found on The Isle of Armor, or into Galarian Slowking if you use an item that can be found in The Crown Tundra. Since there is no way to get these items, you can’t really evolve Galarian Slowpoke in the game at the moment. You have to wait until one of these expansions is available.
If you want to get the upcoming expansions, the season pass can be purchased for $29.99. If you don’t have the game, the bundle containing the expansion pass with the full game is available to purchase for $89.99.
The Isle of Armor expansion is focused on growth and will be available in June 2020. The Crown Tundra is focused on the exploration and will be available in Fall 2020. Each expansion will add 100 new Pokémon that can be bought to the full game even if you don’t have the expansion pass by trading them.
