Snorlax (カビゴン, Kabigon) is a fictional creature in the Pokémon franchise. It appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in all five Smash Bros. games. It is the evolved form of Munchlax.

In Super Smash Bros.[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Snorlax uses Body Slam as its attack. It jumps in the air and disappears off the screen. Snorlax will then inflate itself, making itself bigger, and descend towards the bottom of the screen. Any character that makes contact with Snorlax will take damage and considerable knockback. Snorlax's hitboxes can also affect stage elements and set off explosive items such as the Bob-omb. The attack does not harm the summoner.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Snorlax returns in Melee with exactly the same functionality, however, this time it descends much faster than in the last game.

As a stage element[edit]

A giant balloon of Snorlax (in actuality, the 3D model of Snorlax used in Pokémon Stadium for Nintendo 64) is one of the many floating and bending "platforms" that make the Poké Floats stage. The balloon's belly raises and lowers as if it is "breathing".

As a trophy[edit]

Snorlax features as a collectible trophy, unlocked as one of the 100+ trophies that can be collected randomly during normal play, such as in the Trophy Lottery and throughout the various Single-player Regular Matches.

Snorlax love to sleep and love to eat: these portly Pokémon get grumpy if they don't get 880 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, weight in at over 1,000 pounds.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a Trophy[edit]

A Sleeping Pokémon. It's the ultimate loafer. Sometimes children like to play on top of 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.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Snorlax returns in Super Smash Bros. 4 with the same functionality, making it the only Poké Ball Pokémon other than Goldeen and Mew to appear in all four installments with an attack not changed or given to another Pokémon.

In Smash Tour[edit]

Snorlax appears as a blue item: when selected, it prevents the user from being launched as a result of being KOed or due to the effect of other items like Zinger and Dillon.

Trophy information[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Snorlax trophy is obtained by clearing the "Fitness Junkie" event at normal or hard difficulty.

ntsc 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.

Snorlax's official artwork from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

Snorlax is one of the first 151 Pokémon first appearing in the Generation I games, and at its debut was the absolute heaviest Pokémon. In all of the main series games where it is found in the wild it appears sleeping in the middle of roads, blocking them with its enormous size, and must be woken up by the sound of a Poké Flute in order to fight it and be able to proceed.

Body Slam is a Normal-type move with 85 base power and a 30% chance to paralyze the target. Snorlax can learn it by level in every game.


  • In Super Smash Bros. and Brawl, Snorlax jumps diagonally if hit by a strong enough attack before it ascends.
  • Mew, Goldeen and Snorlax are the only Pokémon to appear as Poké Ball Pokémon in every game.
    • Snorlax is the only one of these three that actually attacks when summoned.
  • Snorlax and Munchlax are the only Poké Ball Pokémon in the same game that share an evolutionary family.
