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

Biology

Physiology

Snorlax is a very large and fat, mammalian Pokémon that has grayish-blue fur and an apricot-color underbelly. Its eyes are always closed, making it look as if it is sleeping.

In its Gigantamax form, its belly forms a hill with plants and tree on top of it, causing Snorlax to lie on its back.

Behavior

Snorlax is known for its relaxed and somewhat-sluggish nature. It will sleep all day until it is hungry, when it will awake and forage for the 880 pounds (399 kilograms) of food it needs, afterwards falling back to sleep again. Because of its eating habits, it can interfere with human farming by destroying crops for food, but it is also believed to release a kind of energy to help new plants grow wherever it ate. In the wild, it will ignore most people and Pokémon while it is eating or sleeping, but tends to be very affectionate towards its Trainer after being caught.

Evolution

Snorlax is the evolved form of Munchlax by leveling it up at level 19 with high Happiness.

Ash's Snorlax appeared in Snack Attack.

Trivia

  • Snorlax is the heaviest Generation I Pokémon.
  • Snorlax is one of the 9 Pokémon that has a type of Incense (in this case, it has Full Incense in order to produce Munchlax eggs).
  • In Super Smash Bros., Snorlax is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Body Slam.
  • In Pokémon GO, Snorlax is one of the few Pokémon that can have a CP of 3000 or more that is not a Mythical or Legendary.

Origin

Snorlax is based on a bear, presumably a black bear or panda bear. Its habit of eating and napping takes inspiration from the act of hibernation, which is commonly associated with bears.

Etymology

Snorlax comes from the words "snore" and "lax" or "relax".

Kabigon comes from 黴 (kabi, "mold", referencing how Snorlax will basically eat anything), 寐 (bi, "sleep"), and is also based on the nickname of Kōji Nishino, one of the programmers working at Game Freak.
