Pokédex data

Snorlax - Sleeping Pokémon
No. Height Weight

Pokédex entry
Very lazy. Just eats and sleeps. As its rotund bulk builds, it becomes steadily more slothful.

Release information

The non-holographic version of this card was reprinted in the Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection reprint sets, which were only released outside of Japan.


A number of early Unlimited run prints have no Jungle expansion symbol. This error occurs on the holographic version only.


Body Slam is a move in the Pokémon games that Snorlax can learn. Thick Skinned's Japanese name is that of Immunity, an Ability introduced in Generation III that Snorlax can learn; coincidentally, the Pokémon Power is similarly named to Snorlax's other Ability Thick Fat. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
