If that wasn't obvious enough, Snorlax is a tanky guy in Pokémon UNITE. Its giant belly isn't just for show, Snorlax can use its massive size to cause big damage or to protect itself from enemy dangers. A true defender, as his role is too, having a Snorlax by your side in any fight will always feel safe and protected. A little slower though, again an obvious fact, so be sure to stay with your group at all times.
Best Setup and Build for Snorlax in Pokémon UNITE
Snorlax should be as big and "fat" as possible, with plenty of HP and items to complement that fact. While there are some CC (crowd control) options you can take advantage of its toolbox, based on the current state of the game and collected beta data, it seems like a more "offensive" Snorlax is the best option instead of a CC. That said, both are still viable, so feel free to experiment if you don't like the options we offer here.
All of this means that we won't be using Snorlax sleep or any other heavy CC options when it comes to items, and it's all about that defense and HP. The Rocky helmet is an item that pairs so well with the Snorlax kit and natural bulk, it would be a shame not to include it. The other two being Leftovers and Assault Vest are a no-brainer, to further increase that stamina, and with three aggressive moves expect Snorlax to be a true juggernaut.
