The form of Galarian Slowbro in Pokémon Go will differ from the traditional evolution of Slowbro. He has slightly different typing and has a unique set of moves, which makes him a completely different Pokémon, even though he has the same name. For those who have been waiting to capture and use Galarian Slowbro in Pokémon Go, you can use it in the Ultra League, where it can become a useful contrast to any Pokémon such as Fairy, Grass, Ice, Normal and Steel that appears. If you want to optimize this Pokémon, you want to make sure you teach it the best attacks it can use.
Galarian Slowbro is a poison and a psychic type of Pokémon. It will be weak against Dark, Ghost and Ground moves, but is resistant to Fairy, Fighting, Grass and Poison attacks.

In terms of PvE, Galarian Slowbro has a maximum CP of 2,764, an attack of 184, a defense of 156 and a stamina of 216.
These are all the moves Galarian Slowbro can learn.
- Confusion (mental type) – 16 damage and 3 energy per wheel (4 damage per wheel) – 4 turns
- Poison Jab (type Poison) – 7 damage and 3.5 energy per wheel (3.5 damage per wheel) – 2 turns

When it comes to fast movement, you’re stuck between choosing a punch with poison or confusion. A water weapon is an attack that you use quite quickly, but it’s not a good choice given the overall options you have with the Galarian Slowbro. Poison strike and confusion are better attacks, and of these two, a more poison strike will be the stronger choice. Two turns are enough to hit, while the confusion lasts four. Confusion causes more damage, but poison poisoning can generate more energy, giving Galarian Slowbro the opportunity to use more of his charged moves during combat.
You have the same number of options for charged moves. If you plan to give Galarian Slowbro access to two charged attacks, you will be able to choose from two of three options. For the lowest energy choice, it is a struggle between the psychic and the sludge bomb. Of the two, the mud bomb is an attack that requires less energy, but if you’re willing to wait until Galarian Slowbro takes another five, he can use a psyche that does more damage, with the possibility of a debuff, even if there’s a small chance. However, it offers a better chance than a sludge bomb. Plus, psychic is super effective against Fighting and Poison types, so Galarian Slowbro provides even more coverage of types in the Ultra League. On his second charged move, you will always want to focus with the amount of damage the attack can do.
Galarian Slowbro can become a decent Ultra League Pokémon. It won’t be right at the top of the competition, so you want to make sure you choose your attacks wisely. It has a decent amount of type coverage, which makes it a solid closer Pokémon that holds the line, given its stamina.
The best movement set for teaching Galarian Slowbro is fast movement with poison, and the best charged movements to teach it are mental and focused.
