In the anime

A Slowpoke that Ash's missing Pokémon asked for help evolved at the end of Island of the Giant Pokémon.

Professor Westwood had a Slowbro that evolved from a Slowpoke in The Evolution Solution.

Prima used a Slowbro to help Ash get his Charizard under control in The Mandarin Island Miss Match.

Several Slowpoke evolve to Slowbro in A Crowning Achievement.

A Slowbro has appeared in May, We Hardly Drew'd Ya!, under the ownership of Solidad.

In the manga

Lorelei uses a Slowbro as part of her team in Pokémon Special. With the Shellder clamped onto its tail, Lorelei explains that her Slowbro has sharpened senses and is capable of looking in all directions, thanks to the extra pair of eyes, allowing it to discover Blue's ploy using Horsea.

Game data

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red The Shellder that latches onto Slowpoke's tail is said to feed on the host's leftover scraps.
Blue
Yellow Lives lazily by the sea. If the Shellder on its tail comes off, it becomes a Slowpoke again.
Stadium If its tail is bitten by a Shellder, Slowpoke evolves into Slowbro. The Shellder seems to like its crunchy tail.
Generation II
Gold If the tail-biting Shellder is thrown off in a harsh battle, it reverts to being an ordinary Slowpoke.
Silver Naturally dull to begin with, it lost its ability to feel pain due to Shellder's seeping poison.
Crystal An attached Shellder won't let go because of the tasty flavor that oozes out of its tail.
Stadium 2 If the tail-biting Shellder is thrown off in a harsh battle, it reverts to being an ordinary Slowpoke.
Generation III
Ruby Slowbro's tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This causes Slowbro to grudgingly swim and catch prey instead.
Sapphire Slowbro's tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This causes Slowbro to grudgingly swim and catch prey instead.
Emerald Its tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This forces it to reluctantly swim and catch prey.
FireRed When a Slowpoke went hunting in the sea, its tail was bitten by a Shellder. That made it evolve into Slowbro.
LeafGreen The Shellder that latches onto Slowpoke's tail is said to feed on the host's leftover scraps.
Generation IV
Diamond Though usually dim witted, it seems to become inspired if the Shellder on its tail bites down.
Pearl Though usually dim witted, it seems to become inspired if the Shellder on its tail bites down.

Trivia

  • In Red and Blue versions (not Yellow or Green), Slowbro is holding the Shellder that goes on its tail instead of it being on the tail. This is a similar sprite error to the error of Koffing's sprite in Red and Blue, as well as Raikou's sprite in Gold and Silver.

Origin

Slowbro's shell and lifestyle are somewhat similar to hermit crabs. Slowbro's appearance may also be based on a hippopotomus.

Name origin

Slowbro's name is a combonation of slow and bro, short for brother. It may just be used in a general sense, in the same way someone would say "hey, brother!" It could also refer to the brotherly relationship shared by the combined form of Slowpoke and Shellder.

Yadoran may be taken to mean 宿らん, to not lodge/dwell. It is also possible that the yado comes from 宿借り yadokari, hermit crab, or 宿主 yadonushi, (parasitic) host. Also, 鈍感 donkan means thickheaded or stolid.
