Pokemon GO Slowbro or Slowking — which form is better? Both evolve from Slowpoke and have similar stats, but Slowbro beats out Slowking just slightly. Here's what you need to know.
Slowbro is the normal evolution of Slowpoke. Evolving Slowpoke into Slowbro requires 50 Candy, and it has a max CP of 2545. It has 177 Attack, 180 Defense and 216 Stamina.
Slowking, on the other hand, evolves with 50 Candy and a King's Rock, and has the exact same stats at Slowbro.
Pokemon GO Slowbro or Slowking: Which Form is Better?
Slowking learns slightly different moves than Slowbro. They both can learn Confusion, Water Gun and Psychic. Slowking gets Blizzard and Fire Blast while Slowbro gets Ice Beam and Water Pulse.
Blizzard is a good move on Slowking, but Fire Blast is redundant with Psychic since most strong Grass-Type Pokémon are also weak to Blizzard and Psychic anyway. Slowbro's Ice Beam is a better alternative, as it prevents Slowking from being a Psychic monotype that gets countered by a Dark-Type. Water Pulse, a two-bar move, can even deal with Tyranitar in that case.
