Slakoth (Japanese: ナマケロ Namakero) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Vigoroth starting at level 18, which evolves into Slaking starting at level 36.

Biology

Slakoth is a brown, quadruped Pokémon with sloth-like qualities. It has coarse, shaggy fur with dark brown stripes on its back. It has a scruff of fur on the top of its head and a large, pig-like pink nose. Its pink eyelids are visible when it has a sleepy expression. Its underbelly, rear, and the paw pads on its back feet are also pink. It has long arms with two sharp claws.

It lolls around and sleeps for more than twenty hours a day, which can makes those around it drowsy. Since it does not move very much, it does not need much food. It only eats three leaves each day. Its heart only beats once a minute. It is capable of regaining lost energy through use of its former signature move, Slack Off. Its nest does not change during its entire life, but can travel far by swimming in rivers. It lives in forests.

In the anime

Major appearances

Norman's Slakoth appeared in Love, Petalburg Style and also in Balance of Power where it battled Ash's Pikachu and Ash's Torkoal. It proved to be a strong battler against Pikachu with its powerful Blizzard attack, but it lost to Torkoal.

In The Garden of Eatin', there were many Slakoth who lived in the Banana Slakoth Garden. A Snorlax was eating all the bananas in the garden and no one was able to stop it until one of the Slakoth in the garden evolved into Vigoroth and defeated it.

Minor appearances

Slakoth first appeared in Max's flashback in Having a Wailord of a Time.

A Slakoth appeared in The Ribbon Cup Caper at the ship's Pokémon Center.

A Slakoth appeared in Camping It Up!

A Slakoth appeared in Lumiose City Pursuit!.

Ruby Slakoth lolls around for over twenty hours every day. Because it moves so little, it does not need much food. This Pokémon's sole daily meal consists of just three leaves.
Sapphire Slakoth's heart beats just once a minute. Whatever happens, it is content to loaf around motionless. It is rare to see this Pokémon in motion.
Emerald It sleeps virtually all day and night long. It doesn't change its nest its entire life, but it sometimes travels great distances by swimming in rivers.
FireRed It sleeps for 20 hours every day. Making drowsy those that see it is one of its abilities.

Trivia

Origin

As its name implies, it appears to have been based on sloths, specifically two-toed sloths.

Name origin

Slakoth is a combination of slack (to be lazy) and sloth. It is also a play on the phrase "to slack off."

Namakero is derived from 樹懶 namakemono (sloth).
