Heavy Slam For Damage & Disruption

Heavy Slam is a great move in both dealing damage and disrupting opponents as it makes them fall off their feet mid-battle. A lot of battles can get quite heated among several Pokemon at once, and this move deals the perfect mix of damage and disruption that could help tip the scales in your team's favor.

Block For Crowd Control

Block is a great choice in battle as it helps with crowd control. Use it to either defend your team from the onslaught of your opponents or block opponents from goals by shoving them away.

Battle Item
Eject ButtonEject Button ・Quickly moves your Pokemon in the designated location.
(Cooldown: 70s)

Flail For Extra Power

Snorlax is usually thrust right in the middle of battle in order to defend opponents, which is why Flail is particularly useful in these heated moments as your basic attack damage will increase in proportion to how low your HP is. This move is key to pummeling your opponents for a quick KO.

Yawn To Help Turn The Tables

Yawn is a great move as it puts surrounding opponents to sleep. This gives your team ample opportunity to turn the tables in a close fight. Do make sure to aim well as it's not a sure hit.

Pack A Punch With Held Items

While the Focus Band is an obvious choice for Snorlax, this build maximizes Snorlax's offensive abilities - particularly with Flail on your side. Amp up its effects by equipping Weakness Policy and Razor Claw and watch as your enemies fall quickly at your feet after just a few punches.

Yawn For Crowd Control

Yawn is a great alternative to Block for crowd control if you're not confident with using the latter as it puts surrounding opponents to sleep easily. Do make sure to aim well as it's not a sure hit.

Deal Damage With Heavy Slam

You'll need to be able to take down opponents as you try to control the crowd, so utilize Heavy Slam for this purpose. It's a great move as it both deals damage and disrupts opponents by making them fall off their feet mid-battle.

Best Builds For Each Pokemon

Snorlax Strategy Guide

Going Top Lane Is Recommended

top lane

Snorlax is a tanky Defender Pokemon, so you can head straight into battle with your allies via the Top Lane. Snorlax won't be able to deal strong enough attacks to KO other Pokemon quickly at the start, so make sure you follow your teammates in battle so you can help defend them as they attack the other team.

Early Game (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Tackle First

Although Rest is an excellent move, we recommend getting the offensive Tackle first to contribute to faster clears. Pick up Rest at level 3 and recover any HP you might have lost then.

Low Attack At The Outset - Stick With Friends

You shouldn't struggle taking out Pokemon from Mid to Late Game, but you will find that your attacks are on the weaker side at the start. Avoid straight 1 on 1 fights with Pokemon & stick with your teammates so they can deal the attacks while you defend them.

Strategy A: Defensive Goal Keeper

Snorlax certainly excels at surviving against their attacks - especially when on a goal. In the early game, focus on preventing enemies from scoring by standing on your goal and interrupting their casts. Remember that you get bonus defensive stats on the goal.

Strategy B: Offensive Early Game Bully

Snorlax's Tackle and auto attacks are actually quite effective in taking enemy camps. Pair up with an Attacker and aggressively move to the opponent's side to bully them and steal the Wild Pokemon and Berries on their side. This paves an efficient path toward doing well early game, and as a result, help you do even better mid game.

Don't Miss The Drednaw Teamfight

Drednaw spawns at the 7-minute mark during the match, so make sure you make your way to the bottom of the map before the clock hits 7 minutes. Drednaw provides tons of experience for you and your allies if KO'd, so make sure you help your allies take this objective by being prepared to do crowd control before the battle gets too heated.

Mid Game (Lv 6~) Strategy

Offensive Skills Improve From Lv6 Onward

Once you reach Lv6, you'll find your offensive capabilities improve enough to deal substantial damage to opposing Pokemon. You'll get Heavy Slam as your primary offensive move, and this will make combat easier for you in general, allowing you to move more independently. Keep sticking with teammates to primarily defend them though, but also try to get KO's and score with your team.

Adapt Your Build To The Situation At Hand

At level 6 you'll get a choice between Heavy Slam and Flail. Which one you choose will affect the direction of your build, so pick wisely. Although Heavy Slam is generally recommended because it both deals damage and throws opponents off their feet, Flail can increase your attack damage significantly when your HP levels are low - making it very useful when in a pinch.

Late Game (Lv 8~) Strategy

Heavy Slam + Block Build

Recommended Combo
Heavy SlamBlockHeavy Slam

This combo is great for both damage and defense. Heavy Slam both deals damage to all opponents in the vicinity and throws them off their feet, so start your onslaught with this move. After that, quickly follow up with Block to push your opponents away from you, prevent them from inflicting damage on you and your allies, as well as to push them away from a goal or particular area. Then, Heavy Slam should have cooled down already by the time Block's effect ends, so follow up with another hit.

Yawn + Flail Build

Recommended Combo
YawnFlail

This build is great for both maximizing Snorlax's crowd control capabilities and offensive qualities as you'll be able to up your basic attack damage, as well as put enemies to sleep. Use Yawn to stop your enemies in their tracks and render them motionless. Quickly follow with Flail to up your attack and start punching! Watch as they just stand motionless until they get KO-ed.

Yawn + Heavy Slam Build

Recommended Combo
YawnHeavy Slam

Yawn is a great alternative to Block for crowd control if you're not confident with using the latter as it puts surrounding opponents to sleep easily. Begin with Yawn to stop enemies in their tracks, then quickly follow with Heavy Slam to give them a powerful hit!

Unite Move: Power Nap

Snorlax's Power Nap performs amazingly in battle as it not only deals damage to opposing Pokemon in the surrounding area while throwing them off their feet, it also gives Snorlax immunity to hindrances while restoring HP continuously. Note that by pressing ZL a second time during the move, you'll trigger a follow-up motion of Snorlax rolling over to one side - dealing additional damage to the opponent next to him.

Other Tips & Guides

Use Block To Disrupt Enemy Positioning

Block will be an absolutely crucial move for Snorlax in the late game, especially when it comes to taking objectives. Use the move to push your enemies away from an objective or goal to let your team cap it.

Snorlax - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will teach you specific Wild Pokemon kill orders, as well as exactly what to do at various stages of the game.

10:00~9:40

Target Level3
Tasks① Select Tackle as your first move
② KO the 1st Aipom
③ Take down the 2nd Aipom
④ Clear the 3rd and the 4th Aipom
⑤ Head towards the center of your lane

As Rest is a healing move, taking Tackle first greatly helps in clearing the first few Wild Pokemon. You can KO the 3rd and 4th Aipoms at the same time so you can advance faster to the middle of your lane. As Snorlax is a Defender Pokemon and the necessity to gain levels isn't that high. With that said, best leave the last hits to your lane ally.

Top Lane Guide

9:40~7:00

Target Level6
Tasks① Defeat the Corphish found on the lower part of the top lane
② Defeat the upper left and lower left Aipoms
③ KO the Corphish found on the upper left side of your team's goal
④ Clear the 3 Combees and the Vespiquen at the middle of your lane
⑤ KO the respawned Corphish found on the lower part of the top lane
⑥ Clear the upper left and lower left Aipoms again
⑦ KO the respawned Corphish near your team's goal
⑧ Clear the 4 Corphishes near the center of the middle lane and continue towards the bottom lane

Snorlax's offensive power is quite strong during the early parts of the game. Take advantage of this and pressure the enemy team and take their Wild Pokemon for XP or plop some score in. With Rest, Snorlax can heal itself so leave the Yellow Berries to your ally instead. Use Sleep either inside your goal or inside bushes so you can safely maximize the move.

7:00~Before Defeating Drednaw

Target Level8
Tasks・ Use Heavy Slam to disable groups of enemy Pokemon
・ Use Block to either prevent enemy Pokemon from escaping or for protecting your team from approaching enemy Pokemon

Heavy Slam allows Snorlax to drop down with excessive force on a designated spot, sending enemies to the air and disabling them momentarily. Use this move during the Drednaw fight to create an opportunity for your team. Afterwards, place yourself at probable escape routes and use Block to prevent enemies from escaping.

Drednaw Guide

After Defeating Drednaw~The End

Target Level10~
Tasks・ Use Heavy Slam to disable groups of enemy Pokemon
・ Use Block to either prevent enemy Pokemon from escaping or for protecting your team from approaching enemy Pokemon
・ Use your Unite Move Power Nap to control fights

Snorlax's Unite Move, Power Nap, continuously damages enemies around it for 5 seconds。You can use this during the Zapdos or Drednaw fights to ward off enemies, allowing your team to have a greater chance of securing the last hit.

Snorlax - Patch Notes & Change Log

Snorlax Move Changes (September 22nd)

Move / StatChanges
YawnYawn- A bug was fixed in which the affected Pokemon that was asleep wouldn’t be woken up when attacked. (Effectively a nerf)

Snorlax receives a minor bug fix to its Yawn move during the September 22nd Patch. Although this fix affects the move's effectiveness, there are no other changes made to Snorlax. This is unlikely to affect Snorlax's position as one of the best Defenders in the game!

Balance Patch (September 22)Click To See Previous Balance Changes

August 18th Changes

Move / StatChanges
Heavy SlamHeavy Slam- Damage done to enemy Pokemon reduced by 5%
BlockBlock- The duration of the move was shortened from 5s to 4s
FlailFlail- Strengthened the effect of the move. (Details TBD)
Power NapPower Nap- HP recovery amount reduced by 30%

Snorlax has received some nerfs in the August 18th patch, many of which were a long time coming. In addition to damage and HP recovery reductions, Block's effect will also see a nerf. To compensate, however, Flail seems to have received a buff.
