 Game Information
 Original Games
In the original games, a Poké Flute was neede to wake up a sleeping Snorlax that was blocking a route, those routes being Routes 12 & 16, which was rehashed in Fire Red and Leaf Green. The same thing happened in Generation II, this time Snorlax blocks Diglett's Cave. Use the Poké Flute station that is a part of the Radio Upgrade to awaken it. This would also be rehashed in the Generation IV remakes Heart Gold and Soul Silver.
In Pokémon Black and White, Snorlax is only available via PokéTransfer, Dream World, or by evolving a Munchlax that was traded for in Undella Town during the game's summer months. A trade is also required to acquire Snorlax in Black 2 and White 2, but this time the trade occurrs at Ninbasa City.

 Anime/Manga Information
Ash captured a Wild Snorlax that had been eating the crops off some of the islands in the episode Snack Attack right before succumbing to the song of Jigglypuff.

Snorlax debuted in the episode Wake up Snorlax where it wouldn't wake up until a local played a Poké Flute to awaken it.

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Snorlax is in the UnderUsed (UU) tier of competitive battling due to massive bulk and a deep movepool that includes moves which take advantage of its bulk. Unfortunately, Snorlax suffers from the plethora of Fighting types in UU, and does not have recovery outside of Rest, which is unreliable given Generation V's new sleep mechanics. It does succeed at using its bulk to wall special attackers, and can be a very reliant Pokemon in the Under-Utilized Metagame.
