I have used my King's rock to evolve my slowpoke to a slowking, but seeing as you also need a King's rock for poliwhirl I wonder if there are 2 or only the one?

According to Bulbapedia, there are a lot of repeatable methods for obtaining extra King's Rocks. It can be bought at the Battle Tree for 32 BP, and wild Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, Politoed, Slowbro, and Hariyama each have a 5% chance to hold one.

If you lead your team with a Butterfree with Compound Eyes and use a Pokemon that has the ability Frisk (Exeggutor can have that), then the Butterfree will give you a better chance of the Pokemon having a King's Rock and the Exeggutor's ability will tell you whether they actually have it.
