This is my favorite pokemon of the new G/S pokes. I'm not sure about the item for this one, but this is mainly to deal with Curselaxes.

Unfortunately, the most widespread confusing move is kinda useless against the Curselax.

[after discussing whether Curse or Belly Drum would be the better move to keep together with Rest] Okay, okay. I lose this round. The East German and Yugoslavian judges (hi Mike!) gave me a 2.5. True, I'm not all that up on my stats. If I'd known the Spec. Def. I would have written a different defense of Belly Drum. At least I have a better feel for why Curselax is so popular.

Snorlax should be doing one of two things, either Cursing or baiting out your opponent's Curselax counters so that your other Curse users can get stuck in without fear of Roar/Whirlwind. I use Earthquake, Fire Blast, Curse and Rest mainly for suprise, no-one expects to see Snorlax without a Normal attack and once the Fire Blast comes out Gengar usually comes in..to be struck down with Earthquake.
