Pokédex description

Hermit Crab Pokémon
Standard Pokédex description
Slowbro's tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This causes Slowbro to grudgingly swim and catch prey instead.
- Slowbro's cry
Galarian Slowbro Pokédex description
A Shellder bite set off a chemical reaction with the spices inside Slowbro's body, causing Slowbro to become a Poison-type Pokémon.
Mega Slowbro Pokédex description
Having been swallowed whole by Shellder, Slowbro now has an iron defense. It's pretty comfortable in there, too.
- Mega Slowbro's cry
