Slowking, The Royal Pokémon. Whenever it yawns, the Shellder on it's head bites harder and injects more poison into Slowking's brain making it smarter. If the Shellder falls off, the Slowking will forget everything it knows and starts off as a Slowpoke again. It has an incredible Intellect and is always calm. Every day it researches in an effort to solve the Mysteries of the world.

Strategy Using Slowking

Slowking, the evolved form of Slowpoke when traded with the king's rock is a formidable pokemon in its own right. The stats are okay and the move Calm Mind can power up Psychic by upping its stats. Surf is for Slowking's water type and Ice Beam can serve to take care of the dragons people have.
Slowking may be underused but it still can pack a punch when used in this way. Calm Mind in Ruby and Sapphire could probably help Slowking more than Amnesia did in the earlier games.
