|Held Item||Rocky Helmet|
This build takes advantage of Slowbro's high Physical Defense. For its held item, it uses the Rocky Helmet to allow it to wear down physical attackers while weathering their attacks.
After taking a few hits, it can use its Regenerate Ability or Slack Off to recover HP, allowing it to come back for more.
|Hydro Pump||A Water-type move with 110 power. For situations when you want to hit harder.|
|Fire Blast||For using against Grass and Steel-types such as Ferrothorn and Scizor.|
|Ice Beam||Super effective against Flying and Dragon-types.|
|Body Press||An attack which allows it to take advantage of its high Defense. Goes well with Iron Defense.|
|Iron Defense||Raises its Defense by 2 stages. Useful to combo with Body Press.|
|Thunder Wave||Allows you to limit an opponent's Speed. With its high defense, it's easy to pull this off on a physical attacker.|
|Yawn||Allows it to force an opponent to switch. Great for using when you've got an attacker who can set up.|
With 110 points in Defense, Slowbro is able to hold its own as a physical defender. It also has 100 points in Special Attack, allowing it to hit back hard as well and push the opponent back on its heels.
Slowbro can use Trick Room when setting up for Dynamax or in the later part of a match to flip the match on its head. It's also able to use moves like Thunder Wave and Will-o-Wisp to limit the opponent's usefulness. When using it in your party, you can switch up its moveset depending on the role you want it to play, which can also make it difficult for opponents to predict.
While Slowbro has a high physical defense of 110, its special defense is incredibly low at 80, making special attackers the best way to handle it. Dark, Ghost, and Electric-type Pokemon are recommended when going up against Slowbro.
