A Very Slow Discovery will be the first major event in Pokémon Go for the Season of Discovery. It’s an event celebrating the debut of Galarian Slowpoke, and you can capture this Pokémon in the mobile game. You’ll have to go out of your way to encounter this Pokémon, but it’ll be worth the effort to evolve it into a Galarian Slowbro. While Galarian Slowking and Galarian Slowpoke’s shiny versions are not appearing for this event, there’s still plenty to do. For A Very Slow Discovery’s Collection Challenge, you have from June 8 to 13, starting at 10 AM to 8 PM in your local time zone, to complete it and capture all of the Pokémon on the list.

Like similar Collection Challenges in the past, you need to capture all of the Pokémon on the list during the event. No Pokémon you captured before the start date will count. The same goes for attempting to evolve a Pokémon into another unless the task specifically says you can do that. You have to catch a Pokémon using a Poké Ball for it to count.

All A Very Slow Discovery Collection Challenge Pokémon

These are all of the Pokémon that appear on the A Very Slow Discovery’s Collection Challenge that you will need to catch.

  • Catch a Slowpoke
  • Evolve a Slowpoke into Slowbro
  • Evolve a Slowpoke into Slowking
  • Catch a Galarian Slowpoke

All of these Pokémon will be available during A Very Slow Discovery event. With all of them being variations of Slowpoke, it’s pretty straight forward where you need to go. For the standard Slowpoke, it will be appearing in the wild all over the world during the event. You can capture this one at your leisure. From there, evolving a Slowpoke into a Slowbro is pretty simple, you just need 50 Slowpoke candy. For Slowking, that’s a little bit different. You need 50 Slowpoke Candy, but you also need a King’s Rock, which you can acquire from spinning Pokéstops. The evolution item can be difficult to come by, which makes Slowking a bit tougher to acquire.

The final Pokémon in the list, Galarian Slowpoke, will only be available one star raids. You can find these raids at any of the Gyms in your local area. There’s a chance it won’t be a Galarian Slowpoke, but this is the only method to encounter it during A Very Slow Discovery event.

These are all of the rewards you receive for completing A Very Slow Discovery Collection Challenge.

  • A Slowpoke Forever Shirt for your avatar
  • 30 Ultra Balls
  • 3,000 XP

You have until June 13 at 8 PM in your local time zone to complete the challenge.
