Snorlax (カビゴン) is the 143rd Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and is known as the Gluttony Pokémon.

Snorlax can use one of two abilities: Immunity, which gives it an immunity to being Poisoned, nullifying the effects of Toxic Spikes and Poison-inducing abilities; or Thick Fat, which decreases the amount of damage that it takes from Fire and Ice Type attacks by 50%. Snorlax from the Dream World use the Gluttony Ability. This Ability allows it to eat its held berry sooner than it would otherwise. This Ability is nullified by opponents that have the Ability Unnerve.

Munchlax evolve into Snorlax once it becomes loyal to its trainer and levels up.

Snorlax is in the Monster Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 10,240 steps to hatch. While a Snorlax can be bred, a Munchlax can hatch from an egg if Snorlax is breeding while holding a Full Incense. This Egg also takes approximately 10,240 steps to hatch. It takes a Snorlax 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] 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.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

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. It would be a powerful asset for Ash, as it was a part of Ash's Orange League-Winning team, along with victories at the Blackthorn City Gym and the Battle Arena.

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

[edit] Movies

Ash's Snorlax appeared in the film The Power of One. Wild Snorlax appeared in the first three Pikachu Shorts, two additional Pikachu Shorts that did not air outside of Japan, and the film Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

[edit] Manga

Snorlax's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] 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.
