The King’s Rock is an important evolutionary item that players will need in Pokemon GO.

The Königsfelsen enables trainers to develop their Poliwhirl into a Politoed or their Slowpoke into a Slowking. The latter is the current goal of the Pokemon GO event “A Very Slow Discovery”.

This event focuses on slower Pokémon such as Slaking, Snorlax, Slowpoke and of course on the regional variants and developments of Slowpoke. To complete the event collecting challenge, players will need a King’s Rock to trigger one of these evolutions.

Trainers can take part in A Very Slow Discovery in Pokemon GO from June 8-13. This is also the time available to trainers to complete the A Very Slow Discovery Collection Challenge.

The challenge requires players to catch a Slowpoke, a Galarian Slowpoke, Slowpoke to Slowbro, and Slowpoke to Slowking. Moving from slowpoke to slowking takes a little more than just candy.

50 slowpoke candies are required, but the trainers must also get their hands on a King’s Rock. This evolutionary item is not exclusive to Pokemon GO or this event, but can be found more easily through other event-exclusive tasks.

There are a few surefire ways for Pokemon GO trainers to get a King’s Rock. The first is through a free event box in the shop. This includes 20 Poke Balls, 10 Great Balls and a King’s Rock for free.

The item can also be acquired by completing a specific field research assignment. Event-exclusive tasks are displayed during the entire event after turning a PokeStop. The special thing that is needed for a King’s Rock is “Evolve a Pokemon”.

It doesn’t have to be a Pokémon the event is about either. It simply requires a Pokemon evolution to take place. Submit this field research assignment and the Pokemon GO trainer will receive a King’s Rock as a reward.
