{{main|Norman's Slaking}}
[[Norman]]'s signature Pokémon is a {{TP|Norman|Slaking}}, who first appeared in ''[[PS186| Brushing Past Breloom]]''. Although it would seem that his {{a|Truant|Ability}} would be of major hindrance, he shows that by having a {{p|Spinda}} tag alongside him and use {{m|Skill Swap}} in times of need, his impressive strength and speed would be wielded to their maximum. Additionally, the move {{m|Bulk Up}} allows him to bolster his stats even more.
{{adv|Emerald}} used a Slaking during his {{DL|Battle Frontier (Generation III)|Battle Factory}} challenge in ''[[PS306|Pinsir Me, I Must Be Dreaming]]''. Thanks to {{m|Slack Off}}, it was able to outlast a {{p|Hitmonlee}} despite its type and speed disadvantages. After the battle, it was swapped with a {{p|Linoone}}.
