Slowbro is a Water & Psychic Pokémon which evolves from Slowpoke. It is vulnerable to Bug, Ghost, Grass, Electric and Dark moves. Slowbro's strongest moveset is Confusion & Psychic and it has a Max CP of 2,545.
"Slowbro's tail has a Shellder firmly attached with a bite. As a result, the tail can't be used for fishing anymore. This causes Slowbro to grudgingly swim and catch prey instead."
PVP Mode Explanatory Notes
PvP Moveset Explanation
Confusion is generally more preferable as it deals more damage than Water Gun. However, Water Gun's much shorter duration and different coverage can be useful sometimes
Surf is necessary due to its cheap cost, as Slowbro's other moves are expensive. Ice Beam is often the preferred second Charged Attack due to its wide coverage, nailing pesky Dragon-, Flying-, and Grass-type Pokemon. Psychic is a good STAB move but its coverage may be redundant with the heavy Psychic-type damage from Confusion. Water Pulse is terrible.
PvP Rating Explanation
Slowbro is known in PvE as a bulky Pokemon with slower DPS, and this isn't much different in PvP. With a defensive stat distribution, Slowbro is relatively bulky compared to its competition which works in its favor. However, weaknesses to very common types hold Slowbro back from being a key metagame threat. With that said, it does resist Medicham's entire moveset and has a positive matchup into Galarian Stunfisk and Bastiodon, allowing Galarian Slowbro to be somewhat of a corebreaker to certain teams.
Slowbro isn't particularly exciting for Ultra League, though its bulk does give some wins against more favorable matchups. The greater abundance of Dragon-type competitors in Ultra League allows Slowbro to have more targets to shoot at with Ice Beam, though that still isn't enough to beat the king of Ultra League: Giratina.
Slowbro is too slow for Master League.
