Slowpoke is a pink creature that resembles a cross between a salamander and a hippopotamus. With the eyes of Slowpoke you can very well see that he is pretty much never focused. It has 4 legs, each with one claw. Slowpoke's long tail has a white tip which drips a sweet, sappy substance which it uses as bait for fishing. Slowpoke has low levels of intelligence, so he often forgets things. Slowpoke is usually found at the water's edge. He is also a Water and Psychic type pokemon
