Slow and steady wins the race, trainers. Despite it not being in the highest standing in the current meta, Slowbro can still be a good niche asset on a team. This Pokemon UNITE Slowbro guide will show players how to keep up with fast-paced opponents.

Slowbro is one of the earliest defenders alongside Snorlax and Blastoise. Here are Slowbro’s star ratings:
Offense: 1 1/2 stars
Endurance: 4 stars
Mobility: 1 1/2 stars
Scoring: 1 1/2 stars
Support: 4 stars
From these ratings, we can see that Slowbro has outstanding defense and bulk in battle. It can also be optimized for great support plays. Slowbro isn’t Eldegoss or Wigglytuff, but with some of the moves in its kid, like Surf and Telekinesis, it can work when the team composition is lacking an actual supporter. Now, let’s get into the ideal items and moves for this pink colossus.
For battle items, the eject button is recommended to help get Slowbro out of disadvantageous situations so it can live to continue defending its fellow attackers. The potion is also acceptable to stack on top of healing items, however, the eject button is still the preferable item here.
For the three held items, the first is Focus Band. This item will restore Slowbro’s health when it gets too low, helping it stay in the game longer. The second held item is Buddy Barrier. This will grant both Slowbro and its partners a shield after using its UNITE move. Finally, the last item is Shell Bell. Shell Bell restores HP every time a move hits, which will greatly aid Slowbro when it decides to use Surf for crowd control. Just keep in the front and rack up enough exp to sponge the damage necessary for attackers to survive.
Surf: Surf allows Slowbro to ride over to a designated area, stunning the enemy and shoving them away from their teammates. This move is ideal for a Slowbro that is supporting their team. Attackers will fall quickly in an ambush, so buying characters like Pika and Ninetales some breathing room will come in handy for allowing them to take the target out or score.
Telekinesis: Definitely Slowbro’s most obnoxious move. This move will hold a single target in place, immobilizing them and giving Slowbro’s team members a chance to zone in and obliterate them. For this move, it is recommended that Slowbro is around allies as this can only affect a single target. However, landing this successfully on a Zeraora or other high-level enemy player can help open scoring opportunities. The Slowbro main’s team will be highly grateful.
With this Pokemon UNITE Slowbro guide in mind, players should be well equipped to surf right into the enemy lanes. While it doesn’t have a lot of attacking power, Slowbro can use its kit to stand with the other defenders. Get in those lanes and show them that pink is the color of nightmares, players.
