In order to evolve your Slowpoke into Slowking, you will need to have a King's Rock with you in your bags. You will also need to have all 50 candy, in the same way as with a normal evolution.

How to get the King's Rock

King's Rock

The King's Rock is obtained from spinning Pokestops and Gyms. There is a very low drop chance of around 1% per spin to receive a King's Rock or any of the other evolution item, and there is an equal chance of obtaining each of the 5 currently available items.

There's no way to ensure that the King's Rock will drop, but with only 4 other items, there's a greater than 50% chance that you'll receive one once you've spun over 250 Pokéstops.

The 7th day streak bonus gives you a very high chance of obtaining one of the evolution item, but it's not believed to be guaranteed.

Other evolution items

As of generation 3, the other evolution items that can be found in the game are:
