Pokemon Sword and Shield: How to Get Galarian Slowking

Friday, October 30th, 2020 9:37 am

You'll need to collect lots of Galarica Twigs.

The Isle of Armor expansion for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield included lots of new Pokemon for players to add to their collections. One of these was Galarian Slowpoke.

Galarian Slowpoke has two possible evolutions — Galarian Slowbro and Galarian Slowking — but when The Isle of Armor expansion was released, only Galarian Slowbro was available to collect. Now that The Crown Tundra expansion is available, Galarian Slowking can finally be collected as well.

Here’s how!

As reported by Polygon, in order to evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking, you’ll need to collect 15 Galarica Twigs and talk to a specific person near the Frigid Sea in order to have them transformed into a Galarica Wreath.

Galarica Twigs are the same items you need to collect to create a Galarica Cuff, the item necessary for evolving Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro. You can find Galarica Twigs at random by interacting with the sparkling objects found on the ground all around the Crown Tundra and Isle of Armor.

Once you have 15 Galarica Twigs, head to the Frigid Sea. As Polygon reported, if you travel down the river near the entrance to the Roaring-Sea Caves, you’ll eventually find an isolated portion of the cave that contains a large room and the woman you need to talk to. (The screenshot below shows you the river’s location in relation to the entrance of the Roaring-Sea Caves.)

Talk to the woman, and she’ll offer to make you a Galarica Wreath in exchange for 15 Galarica Twigs. Select “Yes” to complete this process.

From there, all you have to do is give the Galarica Wreath to a Galarian Slowpoke, and it will automatically evolve into Galarian Slowking! (You can find the Galarica Wreath in your bag’s “Other Items” pocket).

It may take you quite some time to find the 15 Galarica Twigs you need to exchange for a Galarica Wreath. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play Pokemon Sword and Shield (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other accessories.
