Slowking (Japanese: ヤドキング Yadoking) is one of the main characters in The Power of One.

History

The Shellder bitten on Slowking's head

Slowking first appeared in The Power of One, narrating the Shamouti Prophecy. He was then seen observing the bad weather occurring after Moltres's capture. Following Zapdos's capture, Slowking witnessed Articuno freezing an island.

When Ash, his friends, Team Rocket, and Melody arrived to the Shamouti Shrine, they met Slowking who told Ash where to put the spheres he found. As Ash only found the Fire and Thunder Spheres, Slowking pointed out that he was one short. Slowking then saw the fighting between Lugia and the legendary birds. While Ash went ahead to get the Ice Sphere, Slowking stayed behind with Misty, Tracey, and Melody.

After Ash returned with the final sphere, Slowking witnessed Melody revive Lugia and undo the damage done on the island. When Team Rocket survived their fall, Slowking praised them for saving the world and their heroic actions did not go unnoticed.

Slowking appeared again in Slowking's Day, showing what he does on a daily basis. It was revealed that his interests include coconuts, taking walks, flowers, afternoon naps, the ocean, friends, and the sunset.

Personality and characteristics

This talking Slowking lives on Shamouti Island, and is the guardian of the shrine located on the island. He gave Ash advice on where to find the Ice, Thunder, and Fire Spheres that were needed to calm down the fighting legendary birds. He later praised the Team Rocket trio, upset that no-one saw them being heroes, telling them that their heroic actions did not go unnoticed.
