Slowpoke (ヤドン, Yadon), is known as a Dopey Pokémon. The name Slowpoke is an insult for someone who acts or moves slowly. Slowpoke's Japanese name, Yadon, has the word don in it which means slow or stupid. This mammalish Pokémon has a tail which gets lighter towards the tip, a tan muzzle, and curled ears.

They use their tails to fish by dipping them in the water at the side of a river. Slowpokes do not feel pain if their tails are bitten and take 5 seconds to feel pain when under attack. They are often vacantly lost in thought and can spend entire days loafing at the water's edge. Slowpoke's tails leak a sweet sap from the tip which make the tails pleasant to chew on, though the sap is not nutritious. If a Shellder bites its tail, it will evolve into Slowbro, and if one bites its head whilst holding a King's Rock, it will evolve into Slowking.

Residents of Azalea Town in Johto place Slowpoke in high regard and the community revere them. The town is home to the Slowpoke Well, a small underground cave where lots of Slowpokes live. It is said that the yawn of a Slowpoke from the well ended a drought plaguing Azalea 400 years ago. Team Rocket tried cutting off their tails to sell in Mahogany Town. In the anime, Slowpoke has never been seen to use an attack. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, Slowpoke is a member of Team Slacker, the zero motivation exploration team.

Score: 10 -- Flawless Victory (10s are as close to perfect as you will get in a genre or on a platform. Pure, untarnished videogame ecstasy.)

About Mark Griffithsone of us since 10:25 AM on 11.20.2009

Well, I'm Mark, I prefer to be called Griff but there we go. I'm a Languages student from the UK, I love videogames. I play PC games, console and portable ones. I first got into gaming at a young age, only got the Playstation in 2000, but before that I played lots of games on the Mac. I played a hell of a lot of demos, I used to play them over and over. I love all sorts of games, apart from sports and strategy really. Had a long run of FPS games during GCSEs and Sixth Form when I should've been studying. I love point and click games, particularly Lucasarts classics, but also Telltale's more recent titles. Recently, I've really got into games with a unique concept (for example Echochrome, Crush, Mirror's Edge, and others) and even if they have flaws, the concept alone is often enough to draw me in. I'm a completist as well, I tend to play to win, or finish and get overly competitive. I would love to do voice acting as a future career but I really don't see it happening.
