can't put in giga impact?

Snorlax's special attack is horrible, so have ice punch for an ice move. And have slack off and also body slam and then have maybe curse to up your 65 average defense stat and 110 attack. Then slack off restores and body slam is good normal type stab.

We use Body Slam, Rest, Sleep Talk, and Yawn
Guest said: 14th Jun 2017 | REPORT
Body slam rest solar beam and psychic
Guest answered:

I go for this: Shadow ball, double edge, rest, snore/sleep talk

Guest answered:

Solar Beam, Psychic, thunder bolt, shadow ball or body slam

Guest answered:

I chose body slam, belly drum, rest, ice beam
It works fine

Guest answered:

I would have body slam, hyper beam, yawn, and rest. If I were you I would only have physical attacks because snorlax has a lot of attack not special attack

Then use giga impact not hyper beam
Guest said: 9th Jul 2022 | REPORT
Reply to Guest: In gen 3 all normal attacks are physical so hyper beam is good choice
Guest answered:

Body slam
Adamant or impish

Guest answered:

I think it is:
Hyper Beam
Ice Beam
And Calm Mind or psychic, if you are using a team like this: Blastoise, Vileplume. Flareon, Raichu, Fearow and Snorlax (In this team, you can switch Snorlax for Golem or Nidoqueen, if you change Vileplume for exeggutor or Primeape

Guest answered:

Giga Impact

If you use rest you will fully heal your Snorlax and use snore to make damage while sleeping. This is the strategy that I use to fight the Elite Four and he Pokémon Champion.

Guest answered:

Mine is body slam, rest, snore, yawn

Guest answered:

I would recommend you to use
1. Hyper beam
2. Shadow ball
3. Psychic
4. Ice beam / Blizzard / Earthquake ( ice beam and blizzard for dragon type Pokemon trainer especially Lance , the Dragon master
. Recommended ice beam)

Guest answered:

Hyper beam /body slam
Brick break/focus punch
Rest,sleep talk/calm mind,psychic

Body Slam

Guest answered:

Hyper beam



Guest answered:

Body Slam
Rock Tomb

Chesto berry

Body Slam good stab and both rock Tomb and Earthquake physical and useful for Elite Four

Ajesports answered:

Defense curl
Belly drum
Double edge or body slam or hyper beam.( I use body slam )
Holding = Leftovers

Max out the attack to start the battle with belly drum. Max potion. Defense Curl atleast 1 time but I prefer 2 to double your low defense stat. Rollout now has double power up to 960 on the 5th turn to go along with your now 1500 attack stat.

Your welcome.

Guest answered:

Rest, sleep talk, rollout, earthquake (TM).

Guest answered:

Body Slam, Rest, Snore, Yawn. Reduce a huge portion of your opponents health with Snorlax’s OP Body slam (courtesy snorlax attack stats) while they dream away after your Yawn. If on low health, just take a Rest - but dw about not being able to attack during this, let snore do it's job. Enjoy.

Guest answered:

Rollout, Rest, Tackle and Defense Curl are the ones for me

Guest answered:

Surf mega kick metronome and Strength is probably the best

Guest answered:

It's a little tricky given that Snorlax is an exceptionally powerful Normal type and thus can learn various moves. It's attack and special attack stats are considerably higher than it's defense and special defense, and it is rather slow. I'll recommend a more "proper" moveset, then a more interesting moveset.

Standard moveset:
- Body Slam/Strength (STAB, body slam has a bit more power, but strength is a HM so it'll be convenient to have it)
- Shadow Ball (covers up for fighting type weakness, as well as ghost)
- Brick Break/Focus Punch (focus punch is a bit more risky since it takes a turn to charge but it has more power than brick break. This fighting type move covers a broader scope of types ie. Rock, steel, ice, dark, normal.)

The final move depends. If you want Snorlax as more of a HM slave, give it Surf. It has high power and brings more diversity. If you want Snorlax to cover up your Indigo League weaknesses (eg. Lance) then you may want to consider ice-type moves such as Ice Beam and Blizzard. However, these moves are special moves and not physical.

Fun moveset (not really recommended, but more defensive and can be fun):
- Yawn
- Rest
- Snore
- Any move of your choice (eg. Flamethrower, ice beam/blizzard, thunderbolt etc) OR if you really want to risk it, belly drum.
This moveset may NOT always work, especially on Pokemon with insomnia. Hence the need for an offensive fourth move. Basically you use yawn to put your opponent to sleep two turns later. In the first two turns, you either use belly drum first and then sort of lose a turn (which isn't very good) or use your fourth move twice. When the opponent is asleep and you sustain damage, go to rest. Use snore. Keep repeating this strategy (if you can even call it that) LoL

Guest answered:
