To make it up to you for last week being bereft of animal ratings, today we’re featuring a double shot of sorts: the Slowbro.
The Slowbro is a Pokémon, which means it can be domesticated, trained to fight or carry humans across bodies of water, and fits in a small ball or a madman’s computer network. It is essentially a Slowpoke that is being bitten on the tail by what the Pokédex describes as a Shellder. This is the widely accepted explanation, despite the fact that that thing on its tail is clearly not a Shellder.
The Slowbro has access to water and psychic attacks, along with all their respective type advantages.
Perhaps more notably, it does not feel pain. That’s not just something some trainer tells you when he’s trying to brag; that’s a real fact.
Under special circumstances, it can transform itself into something called Mega-Slowbro.
This is what Mega-Slowbro is:
Also: Bug, Ghost, Grass, Electric and Dark Types.

Insightful Bulbapedia Quote
“Slowbro is a combination of slow and bro (short for brother).”
What if it fought a bear?
Given that the bear is a Normal-type, neither animal would have an advantage.
Is it noble?
The Slowbro, yes. That thing called a Shellder? No.
The Slowbro is an amiable sort with an apt name. That mystery creature with intentions to devour it alive is some kind of demonic parasite attempting to pass for a real animal – and insulting us with the transparency of its deception.
You may remember hearing about Pokémon on an episode of ABC’s Norm.
