PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Don't use Yawn on Snorlax. Ever.

  • Lick is incredibly fast and builds up energy quickly. It also has slightly more useful type coverage.

  • Zen Headbutt generates energy slower and hits slower.

  • Hyper Beam outputs the highest DPS, while Body Slam outputs slightly less but can be used more safely with less energy waste.

  • Heavy Slam and Earthquake both lack STAB and aren't the best offensive charge moves to begin with.
  • Outrage gives Snorlax a very specific niche as an anchor when fighting dragons, but also lacks STAB. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Zen Headbutt has far better defensive DPS than Lick, and it hurts Fighting-types seeking to prey on Snorlax.

  • Body Slam is tricky to dodge, as it comes with little warning and can happen in quick succession.

  • Heavy Slam can have the tricky properties of Body Slam while dealing effective damage to Tyranitar that are commonly used to attack Snorlax.

  • Hyper Beam, if it hits, maims most attackers, but is very telegraphed and thus easy to dodge.

  • Earthquake and Outrage can also nail some of Snorlax's common foes for effective damage, but it is also easy to dodge.

PVE Overview

A defensive behemoth since day 1, Snorlax remains one of the best Pokemon to frustrate players of opposing teams by lazing atop a gym. Power creep has somewhat tamed Snorlax, who now especially fears Fighting-types such as Machamp and Hariyama. The importance of good gym defense also matters much less than it did before.

Since the enemy of most raids is the clock, Snorlax has a limited offensive role in the metagame. It’s a passable anchor in select legendary raids, but there are better options.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Lick + Body Slam* and Earthquake 

Lick is Snorlax's only real option with regard to its fast moves as the other ones are really bad. The only downside is that it could cause Snorlax to lose to other Normal types. 

Body Slam is pretty much a requirement in order to use Snorlax for PvP, which is unfortunate because it's now a legacy move. Without it Snorlax is unable to pressure shields effectively, and has no real options to shield-bait. Earthquake is generally preferred for coverage against Steel-types that could wall Snorlax, as well as its lower energy cost compared to Hyper Beam

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Much like its pre-evolution, Snorlax can do well in PvP thanks to its excellent bulk, single vulnerability, and frequent spam of mostly neutral damage. Oh wait, that's legacy. Disappointingly, legacy Body Slam is pretty much mandatory for Snorlax, which makes Munchlax much more appealing to use for Great League instead. 

Ultra League: 5 / 5

Due to the nature of how the Ultra League revolves around Giratina, Snorlax becomes a very considerable option thanks to its typing which laughs at Ghost-type moves. Generally speaking, Snorlax has some of the highest win rates in Ultra League when considering all eligible Pokemon possible, but has to be careful against the Fighting-type contenders which help cover Giratina's weaknesses (AKA Lucario, Poliwrath, Toxicroak). Also just in like Great League, Snorlax can perform even better than sims suggest if it's able to farm energy ahead of time without taking too much damage. 

Master League: 5 / 5

Snorlax has a max CP of 3225 which falls short of the more intimidating legendary Pokemon in Master League, but a very useful moveset gives Snorlax wins against most Pokemon. Even in most losing matchups Snorlax doesn't actually lose by too much, which means that Snorlax could possibly get wins off typically unfavorable matchups if it can farm a bit of energy beforehand. Regardless, Snorlax still needs to avoid Lucario and Machamp in Master League, but overall definitely carries its own weight and almost always puts up a good fight before going down.
