Slowpoke Egg

A Slowpoke egg

Slowpoke is a pink Pokémon that resembles a cross between a salamander and a hippopotamus. Its vacant eyes never seem focused, and it has curled ears and a rounded, tan muzzle. It has four legs, each of which ends in a single white claw. Its long, tapering tail has a white tip.


Slowpoke is commonly found at the water's edge.


Slowpoke has notoriously dim intellect, and often forgets what it was doing.


Slowpoke's tail drips a sweet, sappy substance that is attractive to many species of fish. Slowpoke uses it as a lure for fishing, and it will grow back if cut off.


Slowpoke takes a long time to respond to outside stimuli. For example, it can take up to five seconds to process pain and can take an entire day to notice when its tail has been bitten.
