Ash kept the Snorlax on his team for the remainder of his time in the Orange Islands, but could not use it in the finals due to the fact that it would not wake up and needed to be switched with one of Ash's {{AP|Tauros}}. After the tournament was won, Ash then decided to keep his Snorlax at Professor Oak's permanently because he could no longer feed it and only called upon its power in major battles. It appeared in ''[[EP145|A Farfetch'd Tale]]'', where it crowded into Ash's screen with {{AP|Kingler}}, {{AP|Tauros}} and {{AP|Muk}} to wish him luck for his next gym battle.

Ash called upon it for the [[Sumo Conference]] in ''[[EP194|Ring Masters]]'', sending his {{AP|Noctowl}} back to Oak's lab to make room. Snorlax breaks the weigh-in scales, and promptly falls asleep during the opening ceremony. Its enthusiasm skyrockets when it hears the prize: a year's supply of Pokémon food. In the first round, it defeated a {{p|Poliwrath}} with no trouble, as the Tadpole Pokémon just bounced off Snorlax's stomach and fell out of the ring. Snorlax went running for the food, but Ash managed to recall it quickly. It also defeated a {{p|Machamp}} with no trouble, putting it into the final round with [[Raiden]]'s {{p|Feraligatr}}. This time, Snorlax went on the offensive, but Feraligatr dodged and Snorlax was left teetering on the edge of the ring. It showed amazing agility, and managed to repel Feraligatr's attack by exhaling and using its stomach to press it away. It is then thrown by Feraligatr, but lands in the ring with such an impact that the stadium shakes and Feraligatr loses its balance. Snorlax pushes Feraligatr out of the ring and claims the victory, devouring the entire year's worth of food in one go before falling asleep. Ash then returns Snorlax to Oak's lab.
When Ash returned from Hoenn in ''[[AG133|The Right Place and the Right Mime]]'', with {{an|May}} and [[Max]], Snorlax befriended [[May's Munchlax]], and brought its power to bear against [[Team Rocket's mechas|Team Rocket's mecha]], taking it down easily.
===Kanto Battle Frontier===
Later Snorlax helped Ash earn the Guts Symbol from {{FB|Arena Tycoon|Greta}} in ''[[AG149|Wheel of Frontier]]''. [[Scott]] notes that Ash picked unusual types to battle the {{type|Fighting}} specialist Greta. However, Snorlax used {{m|Harden}} to absorb the blows from her {{p|Hariyama}}, and then took it down with an {{m|Ice Punch}}. Against her {{p|Medicham}}, Harden failed and it was hit hard by {{m|Focus Punch}}, sent flying into Team Rocket. Once battle resumed, Snorlax was frozen by Ice Punch from Medicham, but used {{m|Rest}} to recover whilst Medicham smashed through the ice. It was then pummelled by a series of Focus Punches, until its fully charged Hyper Beam propelled it into the ceiling and it crushed Medicham with a powerful Body Slam.
It appeared in ''[[DP182|An Old Family Blend!]]'', alongside Ash's other Pokémon. It was not in its [[Poké Ball]], like many of Ash's other Pokémon, but was found in the kitchen, eating restaurant food. It was later used in the battle against [[Team Rocket]], but it was sleeping. Ash tried to wake up Snorlax, but it merely rolled over, tipping the Team Rocket mecha over in the process.
