Pokemon GO's A Very Slow Discovery featured Slowpoke and its various forms. While Pokemon GO debuted Slowpoke as the star of the event, fans wondered if they could also catch an Alolan version of Slowpoke.

Pokemon GO's A Very Slow Discovery event began on June 8 and ends on June 13 at 8 p.m. local time.

Unfortunately, fans will be unable to find an Alolan Slowpoke during this event. While there is a Water- and Psychic-type Slowpoke, as well as a Psychic-type Galarian Slowpoke, the Pokemon world does not have an Alolan Slowpoke. However, players can still catch special forms of Slowpoke, Slowbro, and Slowking during Pokemon GO's event.

Pokemon GO's A Very Slow Discovery event released Galarian Slowpoke encounters, which can lead to Slowbro and Slowking evolutions. Fans can experience a Collection Challenge and Field Research Tasks.

The Collection Challenge entails obtaining Slowpoke, Slowbro, Slowking, and Galarian Slowpoke. However, Slowbro and Slowking can only be received through evolving Slowpoke.

Players will have to acquire 50 Slowpoke Candies in order to evolve Slowpoke into Slowbro. As for Slowking, players will need 50 Slowpoke Candies and a King's Rock, which can be obtained through getting the free event box at Pokemon GO's shop in the app.

After finishing the event's Collection Challenge, players can earn 3,000 experience points, 30 Ultra Balls, and a Slowpoke Forever shirt for their avatars.
