what is the point of this. i mean it has no point.

I'm sorry, but this insults real fillers

It's only a couple of minutes long. I don't know exactly what circumstances it first appeared in, but I suspect it was to fill a few minutes of some longer program. It can hardly be considered an episode, but since there's no better classification for it, that's what Serebii's done.

Since it isn't and was never meant to be the equivalent of a full episode, stop insulting it like one.

Just recently got to see this and it was pretty annoying. It wouldn't have been bad at all if they just had the narrator doing commentary or something, but they had a bunch of Japanese kids, pretty young judging by how they sounded, saying the same friggin thing over and over again. >>; It really got on your nerves after about the second time they said it.

It's just a short, i find it really cool.

I haven't heard of this short film, where do I find it?

Toonami will air the specials in May, so lets hope they dont air this one first!

22nd March 2005, 9:07 PM
That's unconfirmed, damnit. --; There is NO WORD on the Houso specials and regular specials.

Toonami will air the specials in May, so lets hope they dont air this one first!

Pokemon isn't going to air on CN anytime soon and if it does it certainly won't be airing on Toonami.

22nd March 2005, 10:44 PM
Even if they were going to show the specials I sincerely doubt this would be included. It's barely more than three minutes long, it hardly even counts as a special. :P

On the subject of Pokémon airing on Toonami, that random poster is refering to Toonami UK, which is apparantly going to be airing the Chronicles series in May according to pkmn.net.

I haven't seen any other sources or pieces of evidence as of yet, and the UK Toonami site is pretty slow with news as it is, so I'll ask around a little~

....... WHY DOES IT EXIST i mean i say it's kinda like a commercial!!!! that's what i say!!!!!!1!!! Down with Slowking!!!!! ;199;

It wasn't even like an episode, it was only a couple of minuted. Even still, it is a special, so Serebii had included it. Still it stinks.

He should have said that he needed pants. Yes I know that was a dub-only line, but it was the best line he ever got.

And this still doesn't help with the issue of where the shrine *is*. I always figured it was on the far part of Shamouti Island, and this special is as murky about it as the movie.

Slowking is amazing! ;O;

Possibly the worst short ever made.

16th April 2009, 9:41 AM
Possibly the best short made ever?

Yes. That's right. Slowking was SO amazing in this special, I can't even decide which of the scenes was the greatest. I loved the scene when he was sleeping amongst the flowers and when he was swimming undrwater in the crystal clear sea. Slowking forever. ;)

So boring that it made me cry :(

19th July 2009, 11:11 PM
I didn't like this at all. The little kid's voices really began to get on my nerves. I would totally watch any of the other Pikachu shorts anyday.

6th January 2010, 9:29 AM
It's really a really short short (lol). It's like 3 minutes long but worth it.

The kids in the background sound cute and the overall story of Slowking going about it's day was cute too.

Not much too say, it was just cute :)

Funny short..

I loved to learn more about Slowking. it looks strange but funny.


1st March 2011, 2:39 AM
This short was very bizarre but also funny. The narrating after everything he does is annoying, but funny. It was cool to see him sleeping next to the flowers, made the scenery look cool.


8th January 2012, 5:01 PM
It was funny and bad at the same time. It was so bad that it's hilarious. The kids voices were really annoying. 6/10.

4th January 2013, 9:55 PM
Wow, they basically gave us a short of Slowking doing nothing...and I enjoyed it! :( This is sad...

Slowking's day wasn't very entertaining. I kind of wish it had done more involving that shrine instead of meaningless activities.

Well this short was super short hee hee. Slowking had a relatively simple daily routine which was nice and all, but this short felt very unneeded in my opinion cuz Slowking was such a minor character. ^^;

1st March 2016, 6:26 AM
This short seems so relaxing. I really like this Slowking ever since the first time I watched "its" movie.

26th March 2016, 5:48 AM
I swear to God, those kids screaming the same words every few seconds gave me a terrible headache. This is a cute little short regardless.

27th May 2016, 9:55 PM
Wow what a waste of 2 minutes this special was lmao. Slowking didn't deserve a special and the kid voices were annoying...

17th September 2016, 2:58 PM
It was cute but as others have said the voice of the kids was quite annoying, especially as they just repreatedly shouted the same line.

It was quite calm at the beginning before the shouting

So this short was sadly only a few minutes long. I suspect that it was to fill a few minutes of some longer episode. The kids in the background sounded cute and the story of Slowking going about his day was cute too.

The Yadoking from the Lugia movie needed some kind of backstory since he was an enigma before, so I was expecting to find out more about him here. Unfortunately, all we got here was two minutes of his daily routine, which was entertaining, but somewhat lackluster.

Slowking is such a cool Pokemon and I wonder why this short didn't get dubbed into English. I mean it only had a few lines of dialogue to translate.

Presumably 4Kids didn't think that this special was important enough to necessitate a dub, which I can't fault them for thinking if true. Watching Yadoking's daily routine wasn't exactly an amazing treat, and this special's run-time itself was too short.

7th December 2017, 11:18 PM
Slowking was an amazing Pokemon, so it kinda sucks how he got such a generic special and we still didn't find out why he could speak.
