Pokémon GO Snorlax Raid Guide – Snorlax Counters & Weaknesses

Is the Sleeping Pokémon giving you a hard time in battle?

Fans of the Pokémon franchise will be happy to hear that Snorlax is returning to Raid Battles. There are very few Pokémon that are effective against this Normal-type Pokémon since its only weakness is Fighting-type moves. Luckily though, Snorlax is only resistant to Ghost-type moves. This means that most moves are at least effective against the Sleeping Pokémon. Players should keep in mind that Snorlax has a fairly high HP, which can make Raid Battles take longer than others. For a more in-depth look at countering Snorlax, check out the Raid Guide below.
