The legendary king of sleep, Snorlax, returns in Sword & Shield. Want one? We tell you Where To Find Snorlax In Pokemon Sword & Shield as the traditional method of encountering the famous sleeper is a little different in the latest addition to the Pokemon franchise.
In previous Pokemon games, Snorlax has traditionally formed some kind of progress blocking barricade. In the first versions of Pokemon games, he can be found sleeping, blocking your path and not allowing you to progress without a specific item. However, now, Snorlax is just another Wild Pokemon you can catch on your adventure.
Where To Find & Catch Snorlax In Pokemon Sword & Shield
Snorlax can be found in the Wild Area here on the map. He is level 36 and you will need atleast four badges to catch him. After catching him, he will not respawn so do not fight him without being able to catch him. A heavy ball will work great if you have one.
Snorlax is a Normal type Pokemon and has a lot of HP. He can also sleep and recover HP so once you get him low, don’t waste any time. Grab him as quick as you can. It’s a good idea to avoid using Pokemon that are strong against Normal, just in case you kill him in one hit but any Pokemon that can take a punch is a good choice to use.
