For the years I have played Pokémon, nothing has been frustrating me more than a slow Pokémon, especially on the battlefield, where speed and agility are essential qualities.
Having a slow Pokémon has slowed my attack missions, often losing in battles.
The slowest 🐌 Pokémon I encountered is Shuckles, who has a speed statistic record of 5. Given the pain I learned first-hand, I decided to prepare this piece to inform others of the experiences with slow Pokémon so that you can avoid wasting your time.
So stick with me as I explain why Shuckles is the slowest.
The Three Pokémon with the lowest speed in Pokémon Go? 🐢
The place for Pokémon’s with the slowest speed in Pokémon Go is occupied by three characters who share the same statistic for speed.
In this case, the place for the slowest Pokémon has been taken by Shuckles with a speed statistic of five. Schuckles also shares this speed stat with Munchlax and Pyukumuku, each with a speed stat of five. Schuckles is known for its slow speed mostly because of its nature and lifecycle.
First of all, this Pokémon does not evolve. This limits its capacity to develop and acquire new skills and powers, including attack speed.
However, Schuckle has incredible defence skills, which enable it to be a valuable asset when you need to deal with stubborn enemies in battle 🔫.
In addition, the lifestyle of the Pokémon is linked to its slow speed. Schuckle spends most of its time hidden in rocks concealed in its shell.
As a slow Pokémon, Schuckle is deployed last in battle as the much faster Pokémon’s attack first. Despite the lousy speed stats, Schuckle is still a valuable Pokémon, given its high defence capabilities.
On the other hand, Munchlax is a hyperactive normal type Pokémon that is often walking in search of food.
Munchlax evolves to Snorlax and learns new moves in the process making it more useful in battle. This Pokémon has a similar speed stat of 5 but an impressive hit points score of 135 with average attack score of 85.
In addition, Pyukumuku is a water-type Pokémon with a dark body.
It is not known to evolve into any new character. With a speed score of five, it shares speed stats with Schuckle.
Despite its poor speed stats, this Pokémon has impressive defence stats with a defence of 130 and a similar value for speed defence.
Schuckle Base Stats
What legendary Pokémon has a low speed? 🐢
Legendary Pokémon are often rare Pokémon characters that are pretty hard to find and often very powerful.
However, we still have some slow Pokémon under this category despite having other impressive features. The Galarian Slowpoke is the slowest Pokémon among the legendary Pokémon 🐢.
It has a speed stat of 15, which is quite a poor stat even when compared to other Pokémon that are not legendary.
Galarian Slowpoke evolves to Slowbro by feeding it Galarica Cuff or Wreath from this NPC. However, the evolution only translates to a little speed improvement since Slowbro has a speed stat of only 30.
Slowbro has impressive defensive capabilities to make up for the slow speed.
What is the fastest Pokémon? 🐇 🦌
Fast Pokémon are the first to be deployed in battle due to their ability to move swiftly to attack or counter opponents. This makes them an essential battle player, giving them a more significant advantage over opponents.
The fastest Pokémon in the series is Regieleki, which has an impressive base speed of 200 ⚡. This Pokémon is made of electric energy ⚡ developed from just one organ and can generate all electricity for Galar.
Regieleki can attack quickly and leave the scene quickly, allowing you to catch your enemy by surprise and depriving them of the chance to retaliate.
In this case, the only advantage an opposing Pokémon can have against this impressive speed is to have a priority move to counter Regieleki.
Besides its speed, this Pokémon has the transistor ability, which allows it to increase the Electric-type ⚡ move by 1.5, resulting in a powerful thunderbolt to attack opponents.
In addition, the Pokémon’s latent power can be unleashed by removing the rings around its body.
Regieleki is, therefore, suitable for swift attacks.
Since I started playing Pokemon at a tender age, my love for the game kept growing. My passion is what inspired me to pursue video game journalism. This helped me gain immersive experience of 5 years. I have a lot of expertise in the gaming industry since I have been editing game-related content for a long time. Since I have also been studying this game in-depth for years, I am now a professional player. My desire is to share everything I know about Pokemon to help you broaden your knowledge on the game.
