Time to stock up on your leftovers because Gigantamax Snorlax is sleepwalking your way to Pokemon Sword and Shield trying to steal every berries you have in your rucksack!
Nintendo have announced that Gigantamax Snorlax will be available from December 4th 2019 – January 25th 2020 (Subject to change). That is still a week away so we have time to prepare ourselves before the encounter.
What skills does Gigantamax Snorlax have?
If you happen to catch one of these beast ( I mean, who wouldn’t?). Dynamaxing allows its normal type skill to transform into “G-Max Replenish”. Using “G-Max Replenish” deals damage to it’s opponents and drops a random berry into Snorlax’s mouth. Consuming the berries allows Snorlax to share that berries to its partner Pokemon battling along side it. It is a great idea to use him in double battles. However there is also a risk. We will not know what Berry will appear each use.
The reason behind its design
So you’ve been wondering, why the weird design? Well, we did a little more research and here’s what we’ve found out. Here’s a summary.
As you may know, Snorlax enjoys eating, especially a tree worth of berries, lazing under trees even. After a heavy meal. Snorlax spits out the berry seeds away and some landed on the belly rustled deep under it fur. By unleashing the power of Dynamax. The seeds spouts, en-root into Snorlax body and grow into a berry tree forming into a majestic island on its body.
Weird but it kinda made alot of sense considering we know how a Snorlax personality is like.
