What do you want to do with this Slowbro or Slowking? Do you want to battle other people, the Battle Frontier, in-game trainers, or something else?

Besides their stat differences (Bro = Def, King = SDef), they are pretty much the same besides a few differnet things.

Reasons to use Slowbro:
1. It's easier to get
2. It's my favorite Pokemon

Reason to use Slowking:
1. It gets Nasty Plot which can give it a large edge

Let's take a look at the stats shall we

Slowbro
HP-95
Attack-75
Defense-110
Sp.Atk-100
Sp.Def-80
Speed-30

Slowking
HP-95
Attack-75
Defense-80
Sp.Atk-100
Sp.Def-110
Speed-30

Same stat base overall but Slowking has less Defense.

Let's see the movepool.

Slowbro
A rather deep and wide movepool.

Slowking
Deep movepool too but Slowbro has a deeper movepool.

So, it depends what you want, if you want a special attacker go with Slowking but if you want something bulky go with Slowbro.

Hope I helped!

Also Slowking has more special defense. You didn't say that either.

Slowbro has more advantage because he can use calm mind properly than slowking because
By giving Slowbro bold nature,you can raise more defense and calm mind will raise his s defense and s attack

And slowbro is easier to get since you can just catch slowpoke and just lvl it up to evolve it

Slowbro doesn't even use Calm Mind competitively at all. A bulky pivot set is far better. If you're playing in-game then Calm Mind Slowbro is still bad because setting up isn't viable in a playthrough.
