Ok. Slowbro.

Here is the moveset I used for Pokémon Red:

Confusion / Surf (?)
Water Gun / Disable / Surf (?)

Phychic is always awesome to have, as it rarely misses and does 90 base Damage. Headbutt does 70 Damage, Confusion does 50. If this is your primary water type, teach Surf in place of Confusion or Water Gun. Water Gun is learned a bit late at level 33, and does 40 Damage. You can keep disable if you want, it can be a bit of a gamble, but it still hilarious when you are in a battle with a friend and you disable one of their best, most problematic moves! Never gets old!

Why water pulse? It is outclassed by scald and surf.
You also need to include your nature.

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 184 HP / 96 Def / 228 SpA
Bold Nature
- Yawn
- Dream Eater
- Nightmare
- Protect/Slack Off

So,idea of this set is to put your opponent to sleep and stall them out.You first go with Yawn,then use Protect.Slack Off also is an option,but I don't prefer it since Slowbro already gets enough recovery with Dream Eater,Leftovers and it's ability Regenerator.After your enemy is put asleep,use Nightmare,which takes 1/4 of your targets max HP each turn.Dream Eater is strong STAB on sleeping target,also good recovery.Plus takes down your foe faster.
