|Caught At||Route 12|
|Status||Red's Starting Six|
Red met Snorlax shortly after entering Vermilion City, where Snorlax was asleep, blocking the road to Lavender Town. Unable to awaken Snorlax, Red was forced to take a detour through Rock Tunnel. It was only when Red gained the Poké Flute from Mr. Fuji, that he was able to awaken Snorlax.
Snorlax fought back against Red, but was eventually captured by him. Snorlax, at first, seemed reluctant to join Red, and only started to display his abilities when faced against Blue's Blastoise. It was after this that Snorlax seemed to unspokenly agree to be apart of Red's team on his quest to the Pokémon League.
Snorlax's massive health and ability to shake off attacks came in especially useful as he was used in some cases to soak up the attacks of gym leaders strongest Pokémon, before being able to counter with his devistating Double Edge move.
This was especially apparant when Snorlax was used by Red as part of his team to take on the Elite Four. Snorlax made a real difference against Lance's dragon Pokémon and was used by Red to finish off Blue's Blastoise, which subserquently saw him crowed as the Pokémon League Champion.
Snorlax was officially inducted into the hall of fame for being one of the Pokémon used by Red in his victory in the Pokémon League.
Snorlax, naturally, tends to spent most his time asleep when outside of battle. This has left him to develop a somewhat isolated personality. He seems to prefer to spend the majority of his time alone, but this however does not mean that he dislikes being part of Red's team. Snorlax is constantly learning from being with Red and his other Pokémon about enjoying himself when part of a group of others.
