Slowpoke (Pokémon)

1 byte removed, 9 January
Biology
Slowpoke has notoriously dim intellect, and often forgets what it was doing. It takes a long time to respond to outside stimuli. For example, it can take up to five seconds to process pain and can take an entire day to notice when its tail has been bitten. Slowpoke is commonly found at the {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Water's-edge Pokémon|water's edge.}} In some places, it is believed that Slowpoke's yawn causes rain. This Pokémon is worshiped in those areas.
 
In Galar, Slowpoke gains yellow markings on it'sits forehead and tail. This was a result of eating Galarica seeds which were their favorite food. As a result, Galarian Slowpoke built up particles of the spice in their bodies over several generations.
 
Galarian Slowpoke spend their their days wallowing on seashores and riverbanks without thinking about anything in particular. Once in a while they might get a very sharp look in their eyes, but they will soon revert back to their zoned-out expression. It’s thought that this behavior is caused by the accumulated Galarica particles stimulating Galarian Slowpoke’s brain, resulting in it thinking of something tremendous—only for the Galarian Slowpoke to immediately forget what it had just thought of.
