Description: A huge, dark blue, cat-like Pokémon, Snorlax is best known for falling asleep in the middle of roads and obstructing even foot traffic. Snorlax are capable of eating just about anything: spoiled food, mold, even Muk’s poison. Nothing they eat causes them any harm. Snorlax’s large, cream colored belly makes it impossible for this Pokémon to walk on all fours, and slows it down considerably. That combined with its docile nature lead to many Snorlax being used as a trampoline by small children and other Pokémon. Snorlax only wake up to eat the 900+ pounds of food they require each day.

Capable of Gigantamaxing, Gigantamax Snorlax is considered by many to be the strongest Gigantamax Pokémon discovered. Despite this great power, it barely moves at all during battle beyond flailing its arms and legs. Seeds that had been caught in its fur sprout up and grow to massive heights, creating a tree, bushes, and even grass across its landscape of a belly.
