For the day after Thanksgiving, what could be more appropriate than... a Snorlax!
Uuuuugh. That's all the posting I can do for today! Must... digest...

This card would kick butt if cessation crystal was'nt in the format.
11/23/2007, 08:38 AM
A good turkey pokemon to eat would be... a Dodrio, Yeh, or Farfetch;d.
11/23/2007, 08:57 AM
*sigh* If only if had a lower retreat cost...
OHKO from Lucario? Retreat of three? Cessation Crystal turns this thing into a worthless blob :lol:. No. Just no.
Not even playable in this format.

If you can't find your Energy cards, this is the card for you.
11/23/2007, 10:21 AM
Ahhh Snorlax, its a shame that Cessation exist...
Attack and cure for free? Good...
80 Hp weak to fight? Bad...
3 Retreat? Bad...
Also, this card is heavily signed by luck (Awaking and sleeping in the wrong moment its painful)

It WOULD be a good stall card if there was no CC. But sadly there IS a CC so this card is pretty muchly worthless. 4/10
It has green flames!! Looks good..
11/23/2007, 02:34 PM
I think the green flames represent this cards oder because this card stinks!!!
11/23/2007, 03:59 PM
Interesting, unusual card. Pretty cool in that it can do damage without any attacks!
Unfortunately it can't be a major attacker and depends on luck.
Better to include pokemon that can help set up your game, rather than Snorlax
Can make a good deck if used with Holon Circle...

did anyone else see a poliwag squirtle and pikachu?
I think this card is ok. Theres not much else to say after what everyone else has said. However windstorm is just as real as CC
11/23/2007, 04:31 PM
it is the play this week at city champion ships.
GUYS NOTHING GOOD IS FIGHTING. OMG Duogong Action
10/10 and i stick wiith it
11/23/2007, 05:43 PM
Play this guy with cessasion crystal, and you got yourself a deck.

Definately a unique Pokemon, Snorlax d is I think the first Pokemon with both a Poke-Power and Poke-Body, but no "attacks". 80 HP is good for a Basic, has a Fighting Weakness, and the usual high retreat cost for a Snorlax. Snorlax relies obviously on its Power and Body, wheras the Power removes 2 damage counters and puts him to sleep, and the Body (if Snorlax is still asleep) lets you put 2 damage counters on the Defending. It's nice as it is essentially a "free" card in that you don't have to attach Energies onto it (unless you really want to retreat him) and he makes an effective wall for a few turns, but Snorlax is ineffective in the long run and becomes a burden later in the game.
Modified - 3/10 (Fun to use, but will not get you anywhere later on)
Limited - 8/10 (Effective here as a big Basic, and lets you power up your bench)
Unlimited - 1/10 (Base Gastly is better)

Igglypuff CG has only Power ja Body too.

Easy prize for fighting pokemons. It's just not worth putting this card in to any deck EVER, unless u wanna lose....

omg! so good! cool drawing, though
11/24/2007, 05:19 AM
Terrible weakness, HP, damage potential and retreat cost.
Square root of 2 out of 10.
11/24/2007, 05:20 AM
1.77/10 It isn't that good, maybe for a stall idea, if you get heads your not in good shape. Tropical Wave maybe.
11/24/2007, 10:50 AM
Hes really good in 2-on-2..but other than that..hes pretty bad =(
11/24/2007, 06:11 PM
Snorlax's objective is to remain asleep and place damage counters on the Defending Pokémon. It can go to sleep via its Dozing Poké-Power or your opponent's Pokémon's abilities. Between turns you hope the coin is tails to place damage counters on the Defending Pokémon.
Windstorm is useful to help Snorlax remove any Cessation Crystal in play.
Snorlax is a useful cover to build up your other necessary Pokémon. It lacks consistency to damage your opponent's Pokémon.
11/24/2007, 06:41 PM
Snorlax gets demolished by Fighting types in Modified (Lucario anyone?)
Unlimited: 1/10 (Better use Base Gastly instead)
Unlimited is not better, as Sneasle, Suicune ex, and Haymaker (Hitmonchan) slay it.
Limited is better as it's a high HP pokemon, but it's damage output is horrid, though no NRG needed is an advantage.
In short: Don't use it.

A fat porker that does nothing but eat and sleep

Snorlax is an important part of Pokémon history.
He's the final edition in a number of test runs by an R & D team that obviously desperately wanted to make free attacks but weren't allowed until DP. Three DP sets down the line, he now just looks silly. A silly little lab mouse. Big, fat lab mouse.
1/10. Sorry, Snorlax.
11/25/2007, 12:15 PM
Well, he has an interesting set of powers that work together. He can heal for 2 counters three-quarters of your turns, which is nice. Doing two damage between every turn would add up to a nice 40 for no energy, but there's that chance that he'll wake up, which is kind of cruddy.
Unlimited--Too weak, I give it 3/10
Limited--It's decent and REQUIRES NO ENERGY, so it's going to fit well into any deck. 7/10
Modified--There's not a lot of Grass metagame going on right now, but it doesn't require energy and has a weakness to Fighting. Still, I can't see it getting much play because there are better cards that are less "flippy". 5/10
Personally, I *might* use it, but there are so many better cards out there.
