Pokémon Sword and Shield

The Pokémon Company have shared the latest trailer for Pokémon Sword and Shield, which reveals some more Pokémon (such as Gigantamax Snorlax, but also the evolutions of the starters). If you want to discover those for yourself, it’s highly recommended you avoid watching it!

Here’s some details about Gigantamax Snorlax:

  • Type: Normal
  • Height: 114’10″+
  • Weight: ???
  • Ability: Immunity / Thick Fat

Thanks to the power of Gigantamax, the Berry seeds and small rocks that were tangled in Snorlax’s belly fur have undergone explosive growth. With a tree sprouting upon its belly, Gigantamax Snorlax has the majesty of a great mountain. Even though it almost never moves, Gigantamax Snorlax is said to be one of the strongest Dynamax Pokémon discovered. When the time comes for it to battle, it lifts its upper body by just a tiny amount and attacks by flailing with its arms and legs—actions that actually pack a tremendous punch. When Snorlax is Gigantamaxed, its Normal-type attacks will be transformed into G-Max Replenish. G-Max Replenish doesn’t just deal damage to targets—it can also restore any Berries that Gigantamax Snorlax’s allies have eaten during the battle.

If you’re interested in Gigantamax Snorlax, make sure to play online between December 4th and early January, when it will appear more frequently in Max Raid Battles.
