1. Exeggutor

Slowbro's moveset

Fast move Charge move
Confusion Psychic
Confusion Water Pulse
Water Gun Psychic


When Slowbro's moveset is a combination of a water-type move and a psychic-type move, Exeggutor is the best for fighting against Slowbro because Exeggutor can decrease the damage of those moves by half.

Exeggutor's fast moves are psychic-type and charge moves are grass-type. Even though fast move are not very effective against Slowbro, charge moves such as Seed Bomb and Solar Beam are super effective.

2. Magneton

Slowbro's movesets

Fast move Charge move
Water Gun Ice Beam
Confusion Ice Beam


When Slowbro's charge move is Ice Beam, Magneton is the best to defeat Slowbro. The ice-type charge move is not very effective against Magneton due to its steel-type. Also Slowbro's psychic-type fast move, Confusion, is not effective against the steel-type Pokemon.

While the damage of Slowbro's moves are reduced, Magneton can attack Slowbro by electric-type moves, such as Spark, Thunder Shock, and Discharge, which are super effective against Slowbro.

3. Venusaur

Water Gun Water Pulse

Venusaur and other grass-type Pokemon

When Slowbro uses Water Gun ans Water Pulse, grass-type Pokemon represented by Venusaur is the best to defeat Slowbro because the damage of those water-type move are not very effective against grass-type Pokemon.

On the other hand, Venusaru's grass type moves, such as Razor Leaf and Petal Blizzard, are super effective against Slowbro.
