Slowking (Johto Pokédex. It is a Water/Psychic-Type, and is known as the Royal Pokémon.) is the 82nd Pokémon in the
Slowking can use one of two Abilities: Oblivious, which gives it an immunity to being affected by the moves Attract and Taunt; or Own Tempo, which protects it from becoming Confused. Slowking's Hidden Ability is Regenerator, which restores a third of its Maximum HP when it switches out of battle.
Slowpoke can evolve into a Slowking if it is traded whilst holding a King's Rock. Alternatively a Slowpoke can evolve into a Slowbro at Level 37, then into a Mega Slowbro in battle if Slowbro is holding a Slowbronite.
Slowking takes on a vastly different appearance after evolution. The Shellder that bit the King's Rock that was on the Slowpke's head now resides on the head of Slowking, which takes on a light blue appearance with a pink gem. The scarf on Slowking's neck takes on the appearance of a red and white-striped beach umbrella. The majority of Slowking's body is pink, save for its cream, segmented underside and light-colored toes.
Facially, Slowking's jaw is a shape similar to that of its previous evolution but it sits upright, as Slowking is bipedal, with its plain, non-descript eyes above its jaw.
 Gender Differences
Slowking doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.
