Sun Its long tail often breaks off. It doesn’t really feel any pain, though, and the tail grows back, so Slowpoke isn’t particularly bothered.
Moon Alolan home cooking involves drying Slowpoke tails and then simmering them into a salty stew.
Ultra Sun There are some places where Slowpoke is worshiped because of a long-standing belief that whenever Slowpoke yawns, it rains.
Ultra Moon Although their tails, which fall off naturally, can easily be found lying around, they’re a precious ingredient for cooking.
