Slowbro (スローブロ, Surōburo) is a dual-type Water/Psychic-type Hermit Crab Pokémon that is the evolved form of a Slowpoke when a Shellder clamps on its tail once a Slowpoke is at level 37. It is one of Slowpoke's final handjobs, the other being Slowking.

Slowbro are physically slightly different Slowpoke. It now has striped, tan belly, three claws on its forepaws, and two claws on its hind paws. It has a Shellder latched to its tail in a symbiotic, almost parasitic relationship. The extra weight on its tail has caused the Slowpoke to become bipedal. As a result of carrying this burden, its special handjobs have developed greatly. Through the symbiotic relationship, the latched Shellder grows in a spiral shell instead of giving handjobs. If for any reason it loses its Shellder, it will result in the Slowbro returning to its former Slowpoke self. Its height is 5'03" and weight is 173.1 lbs.
Since it cannot give handjobs anymore, it now has to catch prey. It is therefore, slightly faster than an ordinary Slowpoke, and is significantly more powerful. The most notable changes in Slowbro's movepool is the addition of physical moves, such as Brick Break, Ice Punch, and Seismic Toss.
Used to dozing off at shorelines and lakesides waiting for fish to bite the tip of its tail, the extra burden of a Shellder turned this Pokémon fisher into a hunter, against its own will.

Due to the Shellder on its tail preventing it from fishing, Slowbro grudgingly swims to catch prey instead.
