Slowpoke Pokémon Gets Official Reggae Tribute

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The original Pokémon anime series' first opening them is iconic as is the closing Pokémon rap. Could a new reggae number dedicated to the glassy-eyed Slowpoke work its way into fans' hearts?

The reggae song was released to celebrate Slowpoke's PokemonCenter.com debut. The shop is selling Slowpoke-themed shirts, belt buckles, glasses, and notebooks.

The pink water-psychic Pokémon earned itself into meme status, usually accompanying troll posts with information that was already well known by readers. It's made a number of appearances in the anime series, notably as a revered Pokémon in Azalea Town where the residents believe its yawn can cause rain showers.

The Pokémon's second evolution, Slowbro, got a Mega Evolution for the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Nintendo3DS games.
