Tank Build Explanation

This build focuses on taking the frontlines to tank damage and disrupt opponents using Heavy Slam and Block or Yawn.

  • Exp. Share provides Snorlax with durability and mobility through increased HP and movement speed. It also makes leveling up faster in the early game for Snorlax and its lane partner.
  • Focus Band further improves Snorlax's durability through increased defenses and acts as a survivability tool in the frontlines.
  • Buddy Barrier gives Snorlax a large HP boost, and it synergizes well with Power Nap, granting the Pokemon a large shield for extra protection.
  • Aeos Cookie can be a replacement for Exp. Share, providing Snorlax with a larger HP in exchange for mobility and support capabilities.
  • Eject Button allows Snorlax to quickly reposition and set up its moves.
  • X Speed can also work for the build to serve the same purpose.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve HP to further improve Snorlax's durability.
  • Sp. Atk. and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on tanking damage, equipping items that will maximize Snorlax's durability is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Exp. Share, Focus Band, and Buddy Barrier will be the best for the build. Although the item combination gives the least HP, it does provide more benefits for Snorlax in the long run.

As for alternatives, replacing Exp. Share with Aeos Cookie would be the best option. The item combination produced the second highest HP results while maintaining a high Sp. Def and Defense stat score.

Flail Build Explanation

This is a offense-oriented build centered on disabling targets with Yawn, then beating them down with attacks with the help of Flail.

  • Muscle Band enhances Snorlax's attacks through increased damage and attack speed, especially while Flail is active.
  • Scope Lens gives Snorlax a chance to deal critical-hits with its attacks, particularly when Flail is active.
  • Focus Band improves Snorlax's durability via increased defenses and acts as a survivability tool, prolonging the Pokemon's life during fights and allowing it to keep attacking targets.
  • Exp. Share can be a replacement for either Muscle Band or Scope Lens, increasing Snorlax's HP and movement speed in exchange for damage.
  • X Speed helps Snorlax stay on top of its targets while beating them down with attacks.
  • Eject Button can also work to serve the same purpose.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or Critical-hit Rate to further improve Snorlax's attacks.
  • Sp. Atk., Sp. Def, and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Flail, equipping items that will maximize Snorlax's attack damage is the ideal item combination. Focus Band is a core item for the build, leaving only two (2) items for consideration.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band and Scope Lens will be the best for the build. The item combination still generated quite decent results, but it does allow Snorlax to deal critical-hits, which suits the build perfectly.

As for alternatives, replacing either Muscle Band or Scope Lens with Exp. Share would be the ideal option. Although Snorlax's attacks will deal less damage, the movement speed and experience gain from of Exp. Share can translate into a different kind of advantage in the long run.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Block ImageBlock Block is a great disabling move that can stun opponents who are caught in the wall's path. Additionally, it drastically increases Snorlax's defenses, allowing it to soak up massive amounts of damage.
Heavy Slam ImageHeavy Slam Heavy Slam is a great damaging move that can disable multiple enemies in an area. It has excellent range, making it easy for Snorlax to engage fights strong.

This moveset better suits Snorlax's tank gameplay. Heavy Slam gives Snorlax a way to dive in the middle of fights and disrupt opponents. Block allows Snorlax to control enemy movement, which has offensive and defensive uses. It also grants Snorlax a shield and increases its defenses, giving the Pokemon more durability for short time.

Heavy Slam and Flail are Snorlax's primary offensive moves. Heavy Slam is a straightforward crowd control move that functions as a dash. It is objectively the better move for Snorlax since it's a disabling move, which is crucial to winning fights. Flail improves Snorlax's attacks by giving it additional effects, turning the Pokemon into a powerful brawler.

Block and Yawn are Snorlax's complimentary moves. They are crowd control moves that don't do much on their own and doesn't deal any damage, but they become useful when use in conjunction with the other moves. Block is generally best paired with Heavy Slam due to their synergy. On the other hand, Yawn is a more powerful disabling move and can work with Heavy Slam or Flail, but it's the best move choice if Snorlax learns Flail.

How to Play Snorlax

Jump to Section

Prioritize Supporting Damage Dealers

Snorlax's primary job throughout the game is to accompany the team's damage dealers and provide crowd controls. The Pokemon also should be fighting in the frontlines to soak damage from the enemy team, allowing the damage dealers to safely attack and use their moves. If there are enemies targeting the team's damage dealers, it's best for Snorlax to quickly come to their aid and throw itself into the fight to tank damage.

Take Advantage of Initial Moveset

Take advantage of Snorlax's strong initial moveset in the early game to get some advantage for your team. It will translate into a better mid game and late game for you and your team if done flawlessly.

Get Early Knockouts with Tackle

Use Tackle to secure early knockouts. Refer to the Tackle Combo for maximum damage.

Tackle: Snorlax Move Effect and Cooldown

Use Rest in Grass or on Goal Zone

It's best to use Rest in grass to heal up safely. It can also be used while standing on an allied goal zone for faster healing.

Rest: Snorlax Move Effect and Cooldown

Utilize Boosted Attacks

Snorlax's Boosted Attack deals damage to nearby enemies and slows them for a short time. Incorporating Boosted Attacks into Snorlax's fighting makes the Pokemon a more efficient frontliner during fights. This is especially true during the early game where most Pokemon are still frail.

Utilize Movement Speed from Gluttony

Take advantage of the movement speed increase from Gluttony. It's useful in certain scenarios like stealing Yellow Berries from the enemy or escaping.

Gluttony: Snorlax Ability Effects

Zone Out Enemies with Block

Use Block to zone out enemies from objectives or discourage them from approaching.

Block: Snorlax Move Effect and Cooldown

Trap Targets on Walls or Objects

If there are walls or objects nearby, shove enemies towards them to trap them in place using Block.

Cut Off Enemy Path

Snorlax can also use Block to cut off the enemy's path. Use the Heavy Blocks Combo for proper execution.

Utilize the Shield and Unstoppable Status Effect

Take advantage of the shield and the Unstoppable status effect during Block. The shield is useful for mitigating damage, especially burst damage while the Unstoppable status effect prevents Snorlax from getting disabled.

Anticipate Enemy Movement When Using Heavy Slam

When using Heavy Slam, try to anticipate the enemy's movement and time it so Snorlax will land directly on top of them.

Heavy Slam: Snorlax Move Effect and Cooldown

Use as a Mobility Tool

Heavy Slam can also be used as a mobility tool for escaping or leaping walls.

Use Power Nap in the Middle of a Teamfight

Use Power Nap when there are many enemies near Snorlax and it's low on HP, especially during teamfights. The move not only heals Snorlax but functions as a crowd control.

Power Nap: Snorlax Move Effect and Cooldown

Use Power Nap to Defend Goal Zones

Snorlax can also use Power Nap while it's inside an allied goal zone to defend it since the move deals damage over time in an area which can interrupt scoring.

Hard Counter With Long Range Pokes

Except for Heavy Slam, Snorlax has short-range attacks and moves, making it difficult to get to enemies farther away. Ranged Pokemon will have an easier time brawling with Snorlax since they can whittle away at its health from afar. For melee Pokemon, it is best to bait out and exhaust Snorlax's moves before you can attack with yours.

Best Teammates for Snorlax

Pokemon Explanation
Cinderace ImageCinderace Scizor ImageScizor Damage Dealers
Snorlax is one of the best "bodyguards" for damage dealers in the game, particularly for ranged Pokemon. Its assortment of disables allows the Pokemon to easily set up knockouts for them, making it easier for them to carry the team. Snorlax can also soak a lot of damage for them during fights, giving them room to freely hit enemies with their attacks and moves.
Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime Urshifu ImageUrshifu Aggressive Frontliners
Pairing Snorlax with an aggressive frontliner puts immense pressure on the enemy team during fights. Both can tank and deal damage all while providing disables, allowing the rest of the team to follow up. Moreover, targetting Snorlax with a move like Power Swap makes the Pokemon a lot harder to knock out, which can force the enemy to exhaust their moves and effort on the Pokemon. Alternatively, Snorlax can use Heavy Slam or Yawn to make it easier for charge-up moves like Wicked Blow to hit.
Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Well-rounded Supporters
Pokemon that can support Snorlax defensively and offensively improves both of the Pokemon's playstyles. Should Snorlax go for a traditional tank build, moves like Cotton Guard or Cotton Spore allows Snorlax to tank even more damage. On the other hand, if Snorlax goes Flail, a move like Leaf Tornado can amplify Snorlax's aggression.

Hello! There is no direct substitute for Buddy Barrier as of the moment. However, if you're only after the HP, we recommend Aeos Cookie or Score Shield for Snorlax. Aeos Cookie will give the most HP between the two, but it does require fully stacking the item to get the max HP. On the other hand, Score Shield gives the same amount of HP as Buddy Barrier for each level and allows you to score more safely. It also goes well with Snorlax's high HP pool.
