Slowpoke is a half salamander/half hippopotamus creature known as the "Dopey Pokémon." The name is derived from the word "slowpoke", an insult directed at a lazy or sluggish person. This usage has then been reversed, using the Pokémon as a metaphor for such a person in the real world. The Slowpoke character is slow at moving and thinking, and has two separate evolution options.
Slowpoke, as its name suggests, is a very slow-witted creature, and requires lots of patience to tolerate it. They are skilled at fishing using their tails, but they are so easily distracted and so unresponsive to pain they may not notice a bite for a day. Slowpoke tails drip an odd syrup-like fluid which many fish are attracted to. Slowpoke's evolution is based on the Pokémon, Shellder. If a Shellder clamps onto a Slowpoke's tail, it will evolve into Slowbro. Its other evolution, Slowking, occurs when a Shellder clamps onto its head while holding a King's Rock.
