Slowbro the Psychic-/Water-type Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is a physical wall in Tera Raids overpowering opponents with Stored Power.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Slowbro is one of the best at Tera Raids, quickly defeating physically attacking Pokémon in Tera Raid Dens. Slowbro is a Psychic-/Water-type Pokémon with a bulky base defensive stat at 110 points and a sufficient special attack of 100 points. It also has the ability to shrug off taunts, affection, and intimidation, giving it further immunities to some status conditions. Additionally, its moves are powerful and can heal if needed.
Slowbro in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet evolves from Slowpoke and can be caught at Lake Casseroya on the Northwest part of the map. Just over the bridge from the Porto Marinada, near the rivers and lakefronts, Slowpoke and Slowbro will come in prominent families. To find one easier, make a Psychic-type Encounter Power Sandwich or buy a Chocolate Churro from Smoochurros. For a level 3 Sandwich, use Onion and Salty Herba Mysticas as the main ingredients.
Recommended Ability, Nature, and Tera Type
After obtaining a Slowbro in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, check its Abilities, Nature, and Tera-type. Slowbro can have one of three Abilities: Oblivious, Own Tempo, and Regenerator. In the case of Tera Raids, Oblivious or Own Tempo benefit Slowbro more since Regenerator, the Pokémon’s Hidden Ability, only works when switching out during a Pokémon battle. The recommended Nature for Slowbro is Modest, which boosts Special Attack and lowers Physical Attacks; however, if the Slowbro obtained does not have this Nature, Mints can be purchased from the Chansey Supply Stores and given to it. Preferably, trainers also should have Psychic-Tera Type on Slowbro to increase its main attacking move, Stored Power giving Slowbro a 2x boost in damage.
Maxing Slowbro’s Stats (IVs, EVs, and Level)
Individual Values and Effort Values for Slowbro are very simple for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raids. When judging Slowbro, be sure to Hyper Train its IVs using Pokémon Scarlet & Violet‘s Gold Bottle Cap or regular Bottle Cap for every stat except physical Attack. For EVs, a max of 252 points should be put into Defense and Special Attack building it’s already above average base higher. Finally, train Slowbro to level 100, maxing Slowbro’s potential as a raid-ready Pokémon.
Moves & Strategy For Using Slowbro
YouTuber Austin John Plays recommends that after raising Slowbro to its max potential in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, give it the moves: Iron Defense, Nasty Plot, Slack Off, and Stored Power. All of these moves continuously increase Slowbro’s main stats, heal itself instead of wasting a Cheer, and use Stored Power to the best of its ability. At the beginning of a raid, Slowbro should use Iron Defense 3 times. Following the Defense boosts, Slowbro must also boost its Special Attack by using Nasty Plot three times as well. On the final turn, trainers should be able to overpower their opponent using Stored Power.
