PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I am asking because one of my friend's way back in the past during an earlier generation of Pokemon said he got his slowking by trading a slowbro while it was holding a king's rock.

No, Slowpoke can either evolve into Slowbro at level 37 or into Slowking by trading Slowpoke holding a King's Rock. Both Slowbro and Slowking are the final evolutions of Slowpoke.

No. Slowbro and Slowking are the final evolutions of the Slowpoke. One cannot evolve into another.
Slowpoke evolves into Slowbro at level 37.
Slowking evolves when a Slowpoke is traded while holding a King's Rock (it won't work with Slowbro).

You, basically, copied my comment as an answer.
You should have answered instead of commenting.
The information s/he wants is specific. There is only one answer with one explanation. If he asked something broad, like how to beat a certain boss/trainer, and I had the exact same thing as your comment, then it would be copying.
