Trainers want to know how to evolve Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon GO.

Evolution is one of the most important parts of the Pokemon franchise. As such, it has been gifted a level of gravity that has carried through each title. Pokemon GO is no different, providing a variety of avenues and methods for trainers to add each new form—regional variant or otherwise—to their PokeDex. Once each of these has been to require tasks for certain Pokemon in order to represent the friendship needed to prompt evolution.

Slowpoke is one such example that, while it doesn't strictly require friendship, does need a bit of extra effort.

How to Evolve Galarian Slowpoke

Trainers can evolve Galarian Slowpoke by collecting 50 Slowpoke candies and completing the Slowpoke's required task. Each evolution has its own tasks that correspond to its type. We've listed both tasks below.

For Galarian Slowpoke to evolve into Galarian Slowbro, trainers need to catch catching 30 poison-types Pokemon with Galarian Slowpoke as their buddy. If done correctly and with the correct amount of candy collected, the "Evolve" button should be active and available to be tapped.

For Galarian Slowpoke to evolve into Galarian Slowking, trainers need to catch 30 psychic-type Pokemon with Galarian Slowpoke as their buddy. Like Galarian Slowbro, if done correctly and with the correct amount of candy collected, trainers will be able to tap the "Evolve" button.
