One of my favorite Pokémon added into the Pokémon Sword and Shield expansions is Galarian Slowpoke. For those who prefer its evolutions, we’ve been able to access Galarian Slowbro since the launch of The Isle of Armor this past summer. For Slowking fans, however, it wasn’t until yesterday’s release of The Crown Tundra that we could obtain one. Of course, like its predecessor, Galarian Slowking is a bit of a pain to figure out how to get. So here’s a guide for how to get Galarian Slowking in The Crown Tundra!
Not surprisingly, the process to get Galarian Slowking is pretty similar to the process for Slowbro in Pokémon Sword and Shield: The Isle of Armor. Across the world of The Crown Tundra and The Isle of Armor, you’ll be able to pick up an item called a Galarica Twig by examining shiny spots on the ground. You’ll need a total of 15 Galarica Twigs this time, almost double that required for Galarian Slowbro. They appear to be about as common as they were in The Isle of Armor. If you’re having trouble locating them, I’ve found that the trees in Ballimere Lake are fairly good at producing them.
Now for the harder part. There’s a single NPC in the entire Crown Tundra region that can make the item you need to get Galarian Slowking. The problem is you have to find her first, and of course, she’s tucked away by herself in a random offshoot. To find this NPC easily, head through the Roaring Sea Caves until you reach the Frigid Sea. Upon exiting the caves, you should notice a rocky outshoot in the sea in front of you. Enter the water and hang left of the outcropping, then follow the path around until you see a cave.
Enter this cave, and you may notice an old woman standing by herself off to the right. This is the woman we’re looking for. Talk to her and agree to exchange 15 Galarica Twigs for a Galarica Wreath. If you find yourself a few Twigs short, I was able to find a few along the cave walls. Once you have the Galarica Wreath, simply give it to your Galarian Slowpoke and watch it evolve! As with most evolutionary items, the Galarica Wreath only lasts for a single use, so if you want to get a bunch of Galarian Slowking, you’ll have to repeat this process for each one.
