Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Snorlax - Fire Red and Leaf Green

Date Reviewed: 9.16.04

Ratings & Reviews below

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


Modified - 2/5 I see potential with Tropical Wind. That's a trainer that puts both yours and your opponent's Active Pokemon to Asleep. However, it will lose to TM's Groundon and Fighting Pokemon.
But I'll have to see the back-up Pokemon to give this card a fair rating.

Limited 5/5 - This card can almost say "If you get this card, you win."
Don't underestimate
status conditions, though. That's what I did against a Snorlax player in the FR/LG Prerelease. I made it Confused, Burned, Poisoned, but to no avail because he had a Gyarados ex waiting for me.
I got a Dewgong, and he topdecked a Pokemon Reversal, and got HEADS for his last prize. Oops, too much bias, I suppose.
Snorlax is fat.  He works better when he stays asleep, so the best ways I can think of to keep him asleep are using Tropical Wind and/or Dark Gengar.  60 damage for 3 energy is not bad, plus he heals if he stays asleep in between turns.
Unlimited - You can combo this with Dark Gengar, but it sounds like too much effort for too little damage.  60 damage is really not that much in this format.  I would rather use Base Gastly. 2/5
Modified - The only thing he can combo with here is Tropical Wind.  Even though 60 damage for CCC is good, it's not AMAZING.  And his healing pokebody won't do much good when he gets KNOCKED OUT IN 1 HIT!! 2/5
Limited - Amazing here.  90 HP for a basic is great, 60 damage for 3 energy(if you stay asleep) is also great.  The healing pokebody is great.  It's a great basic. 5/5

Snorlax Finally a Snorlax that can actually benefit from the asleep status condition. This is by far the funnest Snorlax to play. Remember I said fun, not competitive. His 1st attack puts him to sleep to set up his potion like power to use between turns to remove 20 damage. Then if Snorlax is still asleep he can Toss and Turn for 60 damage for only 3 energy. The tricky part is trying not to wake up between turns that is why this card is very risky for competitive play outside of draft.

Unlimited: 1/5 If you really want to play a Snorlax here use the older ones that at least have resistance to Psychic.

Modified: 2/5 Like I said before if you want to use him for fun but just watch out for all the fighting types that will be popping up to counter Electric.

Limited: 4/5 He is that good in draft. 90 HP and a possible potion every turn and he can attack while its sleeping is just too good to pass up. is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
