The new events have begun for Summer in Pokémon Go. Niantic has kicked off the Season of Discovery, which means new events are flooding in. The new events bring a bunch of new spawns, as well as Research Tasks. One is the new A Very Slow Discovery, which has its own special Poke. There are of course others, like the Gibble event that ran this week. Anyway, back to the topic of A Very Slow Discovery. The event features Galarian Slowpoke, a Pokémon that originates from the Galar region, featured in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
Players who want to get their hands on the regional variant for the Dex can get it by using a special evolution item. You will need to use an item called the King’s Rock to unlock Slowking, a special variant. This Pokémon will offer some very interesting Water and Psychic moves. Here’s how to get it. To get the item, it comes as a Pokéstop reward. You need to head out and spin Pokéstop dials. When you do, you will sometimes get both items and Research Tasks as a result. There’s no guarantee that you get a King’s Rock as a reward but practice some patience.
For A Very Slow Discovery event, there will be a specific field research task you want to find that will give you a guaranteed King’s Rock item. Just get the tasks to Evolve a Pokémon and you will get the item you’re after.
You need to hurry up though, as you only have a short time. This field research will be going away when the event ends, which is June 13 at 8 PM in your local time zone.
You may also get a King’s Rock in Pokémon Go from the Shop. Each day, the daily free boxes will spawn. Make sure to have room in your bags. You can get berries, balls and healing items. The event box for today also includes one King’s Rock. Once you have one, regardless of what source you used, you can create a full Slowking.
