Slowpoke: Water / Psychic Type

Slowpoke’s mind started to race as he tried to internalize the news that his friends had just told him. How could this be true, there was no way- his whole town? He grabbed his head as a wave of pain started to grow inside it, his stomach wasn’t doing too well either. All these sudden thoughts, sudden feelings were making him sick, he needed to find a calming river quickly before it got so bad he couldn’t move.

Although they are notorious for being slow and dopey, many Slowpoke are not lazy. Their bodies have a hard time moving fast and their brains take some time before they are able to react to situations giving them the appearance of being unproductive and dim, but this is not necessarily true. There are a number of Slowpoke who are actually quite bright, it just takes them longer to do and say things then other creatures due to their slow response. If they try to think too fast about something they will often get ill and may find that the world appears as if it is spinning around them. When this starts to happen they will need to lay down and take a moment or two to relax in a daze till their sickness subsides. If they can stick their tail in cool water that can help as well. A old myth tells of a tail of a slowpoke who could cause it to rain whenever it yawned, because of this some slowpoke will try to stay awake for hours to practice yawning in hopes that one day they will be able to bring the rain.

If a Slowpoke wishes to evolve they must find a Shellder to help them do so. If they do not know any Shellder they will often stick their tail in large bodies of water and let a sweet sap leak from it that only Shellder can smell. If a Shellder bites down on their tail this will cause the Slowpoke to evolve into a Slowbro and the Shellder will change forms. Slowpoke have a delayed sense of pain causing them to take a few moments to react if they have been cut or hurt. Many creatures find the sweet sap to taste delicious and many well trailed cooks will use it to make their foods taste sweet. Slowpoke's tail has little to no feeling in it and also has a unique trait of being able to break off in a pinch. If broken off they will grow back in a month or two.

If allowed, Slowpoke will not move very far in a day and it is because of this that they will live wherever they find themselves. They prefer to live somewhere with protection and a roof over their head, but it's not unheard of for a Slowpoke to just sleep on the road because it didn’t want to find a place to rest for the night. If they do sleep out in the open it's quite normal for thieves to come along and steal their tails as they sleep. If they are feeling particularly motivated they prefer to live near moving streams where they can rest their tail in the cool water when their head starts to hurt.

Slowpoke Traits

Allignment: Inside Slowbro are just like any other creature and have feelings and thoughts of their own, however it takes a bit of time for them to be able to express themselves making conversations or strategizing with them quite frustrating. They tend to want to help out others but have doubts about their abilities to do so and will often end up not trying because of these negative thoughts.

Size

Height: 3’11”
Weight: 79 LBS

Speed

20 Feet

Age

The slowbro line tends to live to be about 100 years old. They reach maturity around 22 but aren't considered to be adults till 25. As they age their brains become more and more active. Near the end of their lives many slowbro can think as fast as a regular creature, however because of this they are often constantly physically sick from doing so. Some creatures speculate that if this didn’t cause them to be sick that they would live much longer.

Languages

You can speak, read and write Common and Tankonian. Their brains and actions are slow, and this also applies to their speech. Most Slowpoke have a drawn out way of speaking, taking twice as long to say something as a normal creature would, their pauses nearly unbearable to wait through.

Nature

There are 30 natures, pick a nature that best describes your character. Increase and decrease the appropriate stat accordingly.

Racial Ability score increase

Although your slow mind gives you many disadvantages in life, it has given you at least one advantage and that is a dulled sense of feeling making it easier for you to take hits. Your Constitution ability score increases by +1. See rules on racial ability score increase for more information.

Evolution

No Pokemon has to evolve, but if Slowpoke wishes to evolve it may do so at level 9 and have help from a Shellder(see Slowbro for upgrades) or if you are attuned to a Link Cable and Kings Rock and level up. (see Slowking for upgrades)

Slowpoke looked over the edge of the bank into the deep, slow running water. A face was looking back up at her, its tongue sticking out making it look extremely dopy. “H-Hello?” she said quietly, the creature not responding, but she could see in its eyes what it wanted, but was she ready for this? Evolution was a big step to take.
