A Look Into Video Games: Slowpoke

Slowpoke is a pokemon from the original games. I never really used him in the games (though I faced some with excellent defense levels), but I remember him mostly for being stupid. 

Which is merely implied in the games, you had to watch the anime to see why Slowpoke is a slow poke. 

His Japanese name is ヤドン (Yadon) which might be a combination of  宿借り (Yadokari) which means "hermit crab", and 鈍感 (Donkan) which means "thick-headed".
