Snorlax (Japanese: カビゴン Kabigon) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Munchlax when leveled up with high friendship. It also has a Gigantamax form.

In the Generation I and II games and their remakes, wild Snorlax can be found sleeping in inconvenient locations throughout Kanto. In order to catch one, a Trainer must first awaken it with music from either a Poké Flute or Pokégear set to the Poké Flute channel. A sleeping Snorlax makes a return in Pokémon X and Y, in which it is blocking the player's way on Route 7.

Biology

Snorlax is a huge, bipedal, dark blue-green Pokémon with a cream-colored face, belly, and feet. Its body is composed of mostly its belly, as its limbs are comparatively small. Its head is large with small, pointed ears and two pointed teeth protruding from its lower jaw. It has round feet, which both have three claws and a circular brown paw pad, and short arms with five claws on each hand. Snorlax's bulk makes it the heaviest Normal type.

Snorlax is often found in mountains and forests. It wakes up only to eat, requiring 900 lbs. (400 kg) of food per day before returning to its slumber. It is not a picky eater, as its strong stomach allows it to eat even moldy food without feeling any ill effects. It can even handle thorny plants or Muk's poison. It can also eat while it is resting. Snorlax is docile enough to let children and small Pokémon bounce on its large stomach.

Snorlax can show awesome power when prompted. As Gigantamax Snorlax, seeds and small rocks that were tangled in its belly fur goes through immense growth and a tree spouts upon its belly. The tree has three red clouds surrounding it like a circle. It almost never moves; even when in battle it only slightly lifts its body and attacks by flailing with its arms and legs. However, its attacks are very powerful — Gigantamax Snorlax is considered to be the strongest Dynamax Pokémon to have been discovered.[1]

It is the only known Pokémon capable of using the exclusive Z-Move Pulverizing Pancake and G-Max Move G-Max Replenish.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros.

When released from a Poké Ball, Snorlax will ascend into the air before descending over a large area of the screen with a Body Slam that sends any opponent underneath flying.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Snorlax does the same maneuver as it did in the previous game, but covers a smaller area.

Snorlax is also a Poké Float. It is lying down asleep and so fighting occurs on its head and belly.

Melee trophy information

Snorlax love to sleep and love to eat: these portly Pokémon get grumpy if they don't get 888 pounds of food per day. After snacking out, they always nap. They have cast-iron stomachs and can eat moldy and even rotten food with no digestion problems. They are the heaviest Pokémon on record, weighing in at over 1,000 pounds.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Snorlax once again performs the same maneuver as the previous games.

Brawl trophy information

"A Sleeping Pokémon. It's the ultimate loafer. Sometimes children like to play on top its big belly. Once in a slumber, not even the hardest rain or the fiercest wind will wake it. Snorlax recovers health and restores its physical state by sleeping, and it proves daunting with its damaging Snore attack. Snorlax is the king of Sleeping Pokémon."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Snorlax in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.

Snorlax reappears as a Poké Ball summon in these games, behaving the same way as before.

Trophy information

NA: This sleepy, Normal-type Pokémon is huge! It eats more than 900 lb. of food every day. Most of the time not spent eating is spent sleeping. That big, round body comes in handy when it's brought onto a Smash Bros. battlefield—the Body Slam attack will send anyone who gets hit flying into the air!

PAL: Snorlax is often referred to as the Sleeping Pokémon, and there's a good reason for that! This giant loafer spends almost all its time snoozing, getting up for just long enough each day to scoff up a tidy 400kg of food. In this game, it soars into the air and uses its Body Slam attack, smacking into fighters like a giant wrecking ball.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Snorlax reappears as a Poké Ball summon, retaining its behavior from past games. It also appears as a Spirit. In the Spirit Battle, Snorlax, who is depicted as a giant gray King K. Rool, is immobile but has 500 HP and slowly regains HP. The player fails if they cannot KO Snorlax before the time runs out.

Detective Pikachu

A Snorlax appeared in Detective Pikachu.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Ranger: Snorlax will be seen sleeping throughout the game, effectively cutting off certain areas until later on. It will eventually remain in a cave in the Sekra Range. Once the rest of the Ranger Browser has been completed, it will wake up and can be captured.

Trivia

Origin

Snorlax may be loosely based on hibernating bears, giant pandas, or teddy bears. It may also be based on the cave bear. In addition, it may be based on a food coma, as it eats large quantities of food, then takes a nap, both of which are symptomatic of a food coma. Snorlax also shares traits with sloths, who are often portrayed as lazy and sleepy creatures.

Name origin

Snorlax is a combination of snore and lax or relax.

Kabigon may come from an alternate reading of sleep, 寐 bi, and a corruption of 鼾酔 kansui (snoring) or 憩う ikou (rest). It may also incorporate 黴 kabi (mold), noting the fact that Snorlax will eat anything, even moldy food. Kabigon is also based on the nickname of Game Freak programmer Kōji Nishino, which is the reason his game appearance uses Snorlax as his highest-leveled Pokémon in Black 2 and White 2.
