Gold It has incredible intellect and intuition. Whatever the situation, it remains calm and collected.
Silver When its head was bitten, toxins entered SLOWPOKE's head and unlocked an extraordinary power.
Crystal Every time it yawns, SHELLDER injects more poison into it. The poison makes it more intelligent.
Ruby
Sapphire

Sun A poisonous bite reacted with its system, blessing it with the enhanced intellect of a genius. It has full control of its psychic powers.
Moon This Pokémon is so famed for its intellect that a proverb still persists in some regions: “When in doubt, ask Slowking.”
Ultra Sun It’s constantly coming up with new ideas that would change the world, but as soon as it hits upon a new idea, it forgets it.
Ultra Moon It’s called “the sage of the sea.” It engages in battles of wits with Oranguru, but the result is usually a draw.
