A talking Slowking appears in [[GB19|The Truth About The Mysterious Whirl Islands!!]]. It met Gold and Chris when they got stranded on Whirl Islands. It initially thought they came to challenge Lugia, but they knew nothing about the Silver Wing. It asked them to leave but the trees were too thick to cut and build a raft. It then offered to give them its rubber boat if they defeated a recently gone violent Kamex that had ruled the island for a century. They manage to defeat it, wrecking Slowkig's cave in the process. It later explains to them about Lugia and the Whirl Islands after they defeat Lugia.
