Biology Slowbro is a bipedal, pink Pokémon with a tan, striped belly and a rounded, tan muzzle. It has large, vacant eyes, curled ears, and two pointed teeth protruding from its upper jaw. It has three clawed fingers on its hands and two clawed toes on its feet. There is a Shellder attached to its tail. This Shellder has a gray, spiral shell with darker gray spots and small eyes near the base. There are several spikes across the surface of the Shellder, and it holds onto Slowbro with many sharp teeth. Shellder developed its spiral form in an effort to suck more sweetness out of Slowbro's tail. If its tail or the Shellder attached to it is broken off, Slowbro will revert to its unevolved form, Slowpoke. Slowbro has lost the capability to feel pain due to the Shellder's poison. However, it apparently becomes inspired when the Shellder bites down on its tail. While it is capable of unleashing powerful psychic attacks, Slowbro is typically rather peaceful and usually prefers not to fight. Because it can no longer fish using its tail, it instead swims to catch its prey and allows the Shellder to feed on its leftover scraps. Slowbro tends to live near ponds, lakes, and seashores. When Slowbro Mega Evolves, it becomes engulfed by the Shellder so that only its head, arms, and white-tipped tail are visible. Its head pokes out of the mouth of the Shellder and is surrounded by Shellder's now larger teeth. The spiral Shellder now has an opening at its tip, allowing the tail of Slowbro to stick out. Mega Slowbro balances on its tail due to its legs being engulfed. It can move by bouncing, using its tail as a spring. The spikes on the Shellder are now reduced to four on the bottom section of its body and the dark spots only visible on its middle section. Mega Slowbro's energy has gathered into Shellder, which has increased its hardness. This allows it to act as an armor so hard that nothing can scratch it. Slowpoke is virtually unchanged, but it gains some power and motivation from Shellder's digestive fluids.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Slowbro in Pokémon Adventures

Slowbro debuted in Sigh for Psyduck as a corpse used by Koga's Gastly. Slowbro physically debuted under the ownership of Lorelei in Playing Horsea, where many were used for her Ice-type army. With the Shellder clamped onto its tail, Lorelei explains that her Slowbro has sharpened senses and is capable of looking in all directions, thanks to the extra pair of eyes, allowing it to discover Green's ploy using Horsea. A Slowbro appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to participate in the fight in Ilex Forest. Jinga, a Draconid, used a Slowbro to fight against Ruby in Omega Alpha Adventure 6, and later Mega Evolved it into Mega Slowbro in Omega Alpha Adventure 7.

The Shellder that is latched onto Slowpoke's tail is said to feed on the host's left over scraps.

Blue

Yellow

Lives lazily by the sea. If the Shellder on its tail comes off, it becomes a Slowpoke again.

Stadium

If its tail is bitten by a Shellder, Slowpoke evolves into Slowbro. The Shellder seems to like its crunchy tail.

Johto #081

Gold

If the tail-biting Shellder is thrown off in a harsh battle, it reverts to being an ordinary Slowpoke.

Silver

Naturally dull to begin with, it lost its ability to feel pain due to Shellder's seeping poison.

Crystal

An attached Shellder won't let go because of the tasty flavor that oozes out of its tail.

Stadium 2

Ruby

Slowbro's tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This causes Slowbro to grudgingly swim and catch prey instead.

Sapphire

Emerald

Its tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This forces it to reluctantly swim and catch prey.

FireRed

When a Slowpoke went hunting in the sea, its tail was bitten by a Shellder. That made it evolve into Slowbro.

Sun

It spaces out while gazing at the sea. With Shellder's poison flowing through its body, it becomes even spacier.

Moon

Whenever Shellder bites down hard on its tail, it gives Slowbro a flash of inspiration…which it forgets a moment later.

Ultra Sun

Spacing out is basically all it does. It turns back into Slowpoke if its tail, along with Shellder, breaks off.

Ultra Moon

Shellder, in its greed to suck out more and more sweetness from Slowbro's tail, has metamorphosed into a spiral-shaped shell.

Let's Go Pikachu

Let's Go Eevee

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation VI.

This Pokémon has no Pokédex entries in Generation VI.

All the energy from Mega Evolution poured into the Shellder on its tail, leaving Slowpoke to be swallowed whole.

When bathed in the energy of Mega Evolution, Shellder converts into impregnable armor. There is virtually no change in Slowpoke.

Tremendous energy strengthened the power of the Shellder on its tail, but it doesn't really affect Slowpoke.

Having been swallowed whole by Shellder, Slowbro now has an iron defense. It's pretty comfortable in there, too.

Under the influence of Shellder's digestive fluids, Slowpoke has awakened, gaining a great deal of power–and a little motivation to boot.

For other sprites and images, please see Slowbro images on the Bulbagarden Archives. Trivia Despite it being a commonly known and accepted fact that Shellder triggers its evolution, mentioned in most of its Pokédex entries, Slowbro's evolution from Slowpoke has nothing to do with Shellder in the core series, unlike how the evolution of Mantyke requires a Remoraid. Mega Slowbro is tied with Cloyster for the highest base Defense stat of all Water-type Pokémon. Mega Slowbro has the highest base Defense stat of all Psychic-type Pokémon. Slowbro's Pokédex entries state that if the Shellder is removed, it will revert to its Slowpoke form. Many Pokémon are noted to evolve by two or more Pokémon combining, such as Metang being formed by two Beldum. However, the anime does not show this and simply spawns the second Pokémon out of nowhere: an example is Morrison's Beldum, which simply evolved into Metang without the need of joining to another Beldum. The evolution of Slowpoke into Slowbro or Slowking is the only time that evolution by two Pokémon physically merging is shown. Origin

Bulbanews has an article related to this subject: On the Origin of Species: Slowpoke, Slowbro and Slowking

Slowbro's shell and lifestyle are somewhat similar to hermit crabs, though it is physically similar to giant otters, giant salamanders, and hippopotamuses. Slowbro's appearance may also be a reference to the mythical sazae-oni, a magical sea demon of Japanese folklore distinguished by its spiny “sazae” or “turban shaped” snail shell. Its parasitic relationship with Shellder may be inspired by leeches. Interestingly enough, Slowbro is known as the Hermit Crab Pokémon and many real-world parasites, including leeches, often target crabs.

Name origin Slowbro is a combination of slow and bro (short for brother). It may just be used in a general sense, or it could refer to the brotherly/symbiotic relationship shared by the combined form of Slowpoke and Shellder. Yadoran may be taken to mean 宿らん (to not lodge/dwell). It may also reference 宿借り yadokari (hermit crab) or 宿主 yadonushi ([parasitic] host).
