Card #: card 43 of 62
HP: 60 HP
Pokemon #: 80
Power: "Strange Behavior"
As often as you like during your turn (before your attack), you may
move 1 damage counter from 1 of your Pokemon to Slowbro as long as
is Asleep, Confused, or Paralyzed.
Attack: [PP] Psyshock (20)
Flip a coin. If heads, the Defending Pokemon is now Paralyzed.
Not very many Slowpokes in the cartoon. There was that cool one
near the Theme Park (and it evolved), but other than that, just
cameos. Slowbro is quite elusive in Snap, as well. It was quite common
in the Gameboy Game, however. Both Red and Blue had them.
The way Slowpoke evolves is strange, too. It has to dip its tail
into the water and hope that a Shellder would latch onto it. Shellders
like eating Slowpokesí tails, though...
Slowpoke is the only real recursion this game has right now. There
are the Trainer cards like Recycle, Item Finder, and Revive, but they
trade cards 1 for 1, and are oneshot. Slowpoke can potentially get a
lot of cards out of the pile. However, it doesnít have _any_
attacks! And you have to discard a P every time you want to get a
Trainer Card out of the pile.
Slowbro is the coolest Potion youíve seen. Thatís what youíll
use it for most of the time. Can absorb 5 damage, better than Super
Potion! The catch is that Slowbro has to stay on the bench, and
attacks like Spark, Giga Spark, and Dark Mind can get to it.
- Cheap (Common/Uncommon)
- Not that hard to get out
- One of the few recursion elements in the game Weaknesses:
Scavenge is fragile
- SlowbroPotion is vulnerable to Bench Attackers and Gust Combos:
Slowbro + Mr. Fuji/Scoop Up - bye bye 5 damage - though if you use
Scoop, youíll lose the Ďbro. Remember Mr. Fuji only works on
- Slowpoke + Card Drawing (Bill, Oak, Gambler, etc.) - Draw again
and again (as long as you have Ps)!
7.0/7.5 - I still think Scavenge is very fragile.
