==History==
==={{chap|Red, Green & Blue}}===
[[File:Red and Snor.png|thumb|250px|right|RedSnor and SnorRed]]
Red first met Snor in ''[[PS012|Wake Up—You're Snorlax!]]'', where he was blocking the {{rt|12|Kanto}}, which was being used for a [[Bicycle|bike]] race. Red managed to wake Snorlax up with some {{p|Beedrill}} honey that had dripped onto [[Saur]]. After this, Snorlax chased Red all the way to the goal of the race, where he was then caught by him.
 
In ''[[PS037|Golly, Golem!]]'', Snor wasbattled {{adv|Giovanni}} used as Red's first Pokémon in his battle against {{adv|Giovanni}} at the [[Viridian Gym]]. Snor made the first attack, but Giovanni used his speed against him by having {{p|Nidoqueen}} {{m|Counter}} Snor's attack, before flinging the heavy Pokémon through the wall and out of the Gym. As Giovanni switched to {{p|Golem}}, Red decided to have the ricocheting Pokémon bounce itshis way out of the Gym so Snor could attack, but Giovanni made use of Snor's {{m|Headbutt}} shattering Golem by pummeling Snor with {{m|Rock Throw}} and then fainting him with {{m|Explosion}}, revealing that he had planned this from the moment Red sent Snor out.
 
In ''[[PS040|A Charizard...and a Champion]]'', Red used Snor againstbattled [[Blue's Charizard]] in the [[Indigo Plateau]] [[Pokémon League]] finals, though {{adv|Blue}} immediately switched out for {{TP|Blue|Machamp}}. Through itshis four arms, Machamp easily blocked all of Snor's limbs and prevented him from attacking. The Superpower Pokémon then effortlessly lifted the Sleeping Pokémon with itshis four arms, spinning him about with {{m|Submission}} before {{m|slam}}ming him onto the floor, which cracked under Snor's weight. After Snor hit the ground, Red secretly had him use {{m|Harden}} in anticipation of Machamp's {{m|Karate Chop}}. However, Blue saw through Red's trick, and had his Machamp attack the ground instead, using a piece of shattered debris as a lever to catapult Snor into the air and out of the battlefield. Just as Snor was about to be disqualified for going out of bounds, he plummeted down from mid-air and crushed Machamp with a combination of {{m|Double-Edge}} and {{m|Toxic}}. Realizing Snor had taken heavy damage, Red then [[recall]]ed him.

Snor followed up with a {{m|Mega Punch}}, knocking the Bagworm Pokémon out. The next opponent was an {{p|Azumarill}}, who promptly used {{m|Whirlpool}} to trap Snor. The Sleeping Pokémon used {{m|Rest}} inside the vortex, and quickly attacked with {{m|Mega Kick}} as soon as the whirlpool dissipated, knocking Azumarill out. He was the switched out for [[Vee]].

Red then counterattacked with Gyara's {{m|Body Slam}} on Porygon2 and Snor's {{m|Strength}} on Golduck. As Blue was getting further ahead, Red had Gyara attack Golduck with {{m|Hyper Beam}}, and the Duck Pokémon escaped underground by using {{m|Dig}}. Red countered by having Snor use {{m|Earthquake}}, which dealt double damage on Golduck due to ithim being underground, fainting ithim. The attack also damaged Porygon2, but Gyara avoided any damage due to being part {{type|Flying}}. Blue then switched to {{TP|Blue|Scizor}} and Machamp, with Scizor dropping Machamp at Snor, allowing ithim to perform a {{m|Seismic Toss}} on the Sleeping Pokémon. Before Snor could react, Machamp attacked him with {{m|Low Kick}}, which dealt massive damage on the heavy Pokémon and took ithim out of the fight.
 
In ''[[PS279|Don't Doubt Deoxys]]'', Red used Snor during his battle againstbattled {{adv|Deoxys|Organism No. 2}} on [[Five Island]].
