'''Wake Up--You’reUp—You’re Snorlax!''' (Japanese: '''VSカビゴン''' ''VS. {{tt|Kabigon|Snorlax}}'') is the twelfth round in the {{chap|Red, Green & Blue}} of the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga.
{{adv|Red}} takes part in a bike race along {{rt|11|Kanto}}, having borrowed a [[Bicycle]] from the [[Pokémon Fan Club Chairman]], but when it starts, he finds himself far behind everyone. However, he catches up when everyone stops at a river filled with {{p|Tentacruel}}, forcing the cyclists to cross one at a time -- alltime—all except for a {{tc|Swimmer}} who informs him that Pokémon are allowed to be used in the race. Watching the Swimmer get across on his {{p|Slowpoke}} gives Red an idea, and he sends out [[Poli]] in order to make a bridge of ice using {{m|Ice Beam}}, allowing Red to gain considerable ground.
Reaching a fork, Red finds the other cyclists opting to go the longer way instead of a shorter route through a forest infested by {{t|Bug}} Pokémon. Ignoring the warning of a {{tc|Bug Catcher}}, Red decides to keep his lead by going through the forest, by having [[Pika]] shock all of the wild Pokémon and [[Saur]] cut through the thick brush. Suddenly, a {{p|Beedrill}} hive falls on [[Saur]]'s head, and Red finds himself fleeing from the ensuing Beedrill swarm. Eventually, Red trundles out of the forest, wincing from Beedrill stings but nevertheless far ahead, at which he and his Pokémon rejoice.
At {{rt|12|Kanto}}, Red finds the Swimmer and the Bug Catcher stuck at the dock, unable to continue due to a {{p|Snorlax}} blocking the way ahead. Red tries getting Poli to attack Snorlax, but the attack fails; the Swimmer and Bug Catcher point out that Snorlax would simply {{m|Rest}} off any attack thrown at it. Coming up with a plan, Red uses the Beedrill honey still coating his Bulbasaur to rouse Snorlax from his sleep -- assleep—as a result, the awoken Snorlax chases after Red for the honey all the way to the finish line; the sight shocking the announcer and onlookers. Some time later, Red mopes over how the 10,000 dollars he won in the race had to be all spent on his newly caught Snorlax...
==Major events==
* The race is sponsored by [[Miracle Cycle]].
* In the bike race, Pokémon are allowed to be used. This ruling is similar to the race that was featured in the [[Pokémon anime]] episode, ''[[EP033|The Flame Pokémon-athon!]]''.
* Red comments that he got his bike from the President of the [[Pokémon Fan Club]]. In the {{pkmn|games}}, the president gives the player a voucher which must be redeemed in the [[Cerulean City]] bike shop.
* The area where Snorlax is sleeping is directly based on one of its positions in the games, which would be {{rt|12|Kanto}}.
