Everyone's favorite large Pokemon son, Snorlax, is getting a tremendous Gigantamax form next month. If you think you're worthy, you can try to catch the big fella in a raid event running from December 4 until early January 2020.
Like all Gigantamax Pokemon, Snorlax takes on a whole new physical form when it grows. In this instance, it grows large enough to hold an entire park and a berry tree on its humongous stomach. Does that mean the tree's roots burrow into the beast's stomach? I guess it's possible, in which case it's a good thing nothing really bothers Snorlax except its perpetual, gnawing hunger.
Speaking of hunger, Gigantamax Snorlax's ability is G-Max Replenish, which restores a berry after Snorlax eats it. Thank Arceus, our big child will never go hungry again.
Gigantamax Snorlax's introduction piggybacks on a trailer that (finally) introduces the evolutions of Galar's starter Pokemon, Scorbunny, Grookey, and Sobble. You probably know Cinderace, Rillaboom, and Inteleon by now, but the video gives us our first glimpse of the evolutions' official artwork as well. Speaking for myself, I enjoyed the anticipation that came with waiting to see the starters' final forms. Game Freak typically pulls back the veil very early in new games' development, so I enjoyed being surprised.
