How could the Snorlax eat that much. A Snorlax is supposed to eat about 400 kilogramsof food. Judging by their size, the grape fruit were about half a kilogram. That means Snorlax should have only eaten 800 grape fruit and fall to sleep. Yet he was able to devastate two Islands and destroy half the crop on another. Maybe the swimming gave him an appitite.

You know when I first watched this episode and Ash caught Snorlax, I wondered why Ash really caught it, but then I watched the Johto League matches that Ash put Snorlax through, and I'm now thoroughly happy that Ash has a Snorlax :)

Trying to put Snorlax to sleep was hilarious. Misty tryed to put him to sleep by counting Snorlax. Snorlax was actually counting the whole time. Then Psyduck came and started laughing at her.
Team Rocket tried to sing it to sleep. Snorlax wasn't too hapy about that.

^Yup, that part was really funny. I laughed when she fell asleep and Psyduck made fun of her. XD It was funny when Snorlax almost ate Misty's Goldeen XDD Overall 9.3/10

I remember the first time I saw this one, I wasn't quite sure if Ash really captured Snorlax, since you never see him regain the Poké Ball he uses to contain him. It caused me quite a bit of confusion at the time, since I was working on the preliminary version of what would become "Pokémon the Movie 8.5" and I wanted to get everyone's lineup accurate.

it was so funny when Snorlax almost ate Goldeen.

It was funny watcing this episode the same day (later in the day) as "The Garden of Eatin'", since this was the episode where Ash caught Snorlax, and TGOE was his first appearance since season five.

This was a pretty good episode. It was definitely just about as good as "Wake Up Snorlax", since they were once again trying to take on a snorlax. I like how they set up the stage for Jigglypuff, Misty trying to get snorlax to count snorlaxes :D , snorlax using Lickitung's tongue for a napkin (LOL), Bulbasaur and Victreebel getting squished flat as pancakes, and Ash saying that snorlax is doing the "Blubberfly". :) At least Snorlax has proven to be a great addition to Ash's team, even though he's rarely used, so the capture was definitely worth it (especially for the islands' sakes).

One quibble, though, is that I think the grapefruit grower was just a *little* too overprotective of her crop. I can certainly understand it to a point, but for gosh sakes, with the big fat grapefruits that are hard to open I don't think people are going to be taking that many at once.

The multiple felt-tip markers Misty prepared for Jigglypuff were awesome.

2nd November 2005, 3:53 AM
i thought it was a fun and good episode. ash shouldve kept snorlax in his team more often though. snorlax episodes are always fun to watch

15th July 2006, 3:38 PM
An awesome epi. Snorlax was kool. I mean i didnt expect it to swim from island to island so that was kool. Ahh jiggly saving the day again. 8/10

21st December 2006, 3:48 AM
Snorlax was so funny here, and when it almost ate Goldeen, it was funny, but TR's attempt to put Snorlax to sleep was priceless

28th December 2006, 7:43 PM
I did not no why ash got a snorlax in the first place but when i saw it battle I understood why and I wish ash would use it more.

25th January 2007, 9:09 PM
It was a OK episode. Ash captures a Snorlax.

31st March 2007, 7:25 AM
This one was defenitly a winner, Jigglypuff should have stuck around.

22nd August 2007, 4:43 PM
A funny episode, I got a Laugh out of watching the gang try to put Snorlax to sleep and then luring out Jigglypuff in order to put Snorlax to sleep. Congrats to Ash for catching himself a Snorlax now he has a full compliment of 6 Pokemon with him.

24th February 2008, 5:10 AM
I definitely miss the days when the following-the-team pokemon such as Jiggly were intergrated into the plot of the episode and not just an annoying pokemon that popped up every now and then.

28th April 2008, 3:18 AM
This episode was hilarious. That pretty much says it all for me.

5th July 2008, 4:21 PM
man snorlax almost ate goldeen, i'm glad it went okay, anyway it's a fun episode.

5th November 2008, 9:28 PM
Anyone notice at the end when Ruby said "Next year, we might have even more fruit."

Last I checked, trees didn't grow in a year. Let alone grow and produce fruit...

7th November 2008, 5:52 AM
I can't believe that Snorlax almost ate a Goldeen! (lol ever wonder which fish-like Pokémon would be used to make sushi? *shot*)

I remember this swimming Snorlax... Ash caught it, which is cool ^^ I don't think we've ever really seen it swim again... well except in his match against Clair later on...

I liked the episode; mostly because they were trying to put it to sleep, rather than wake it up like they did in "Wake Up, Snorlax!" XD

I liked the episode; mostly because they were trying to put it to sleep, rather than wake it up like they did in "Wake Up, Snorlax!" XD

I completely missed that irony. Except they had better luck putting this Snorlax to sleep than trying to wake up that other one.

7th January 2009, 7:41 AM
Good episode. Yay Ash caught a Snorlax :P But really, it was hilarious when Snorlax almost ate Goldeen xD

8th January 2009, 11:14 PM
This was a reasonably entertaining episode, one which looked like it was just going to be a regular filler, until the very end. I was pleasantly surprised when Ash actually managed to catch the Snorlax, largely because it was so different from any kind of Pokemon he'd owned before (a pure normal type, for one thing - Raticate doesn't count), and he'd gone for so long with only five pokemon on his regular team that I'd been curious as to whether he'd ever pick up and travel with a sixth. By the time the Orange adventures were up, I was seriously beginning to question whether there had really been any point to his obtaining Snorlax, since, though it did have a pivotal role in the "Food Fight" episode, it was barely ever used in battles, and had to be dumped at Oak's lab before the big climactic battle after proving its uselessness upon that particular occasion, presumably never to have a place upon Ash's regular roster again. Still, it's good that Ash hasn't forgotten it, and that he's still willing to have it sent over and harness its incredible strength every so often so, in the long run, I'd say that Snorlax has proven its worth.

I love Snorlax, and i think it was a good capture for Ash.

But how did Jigglypuff know where to find them?

7th March 2009, 4:07 PM
fun episode, Snorlax is my fave Pokemon

3rd September 2009, 8:10 PM
I remember this episode a long time ago. It was intersting. Ruby was really well designed in this episode.

Okay, the battle scenes with Snorlax flattening the other pokemons was really hilarious. And some other scenes, too.

9th September 2009, 3:12 PM
The only bad thing with Ash catching Snorlax is that it will likely eat Oak out of house and home. It is a good swimmer for such a heavy pokemon, no wonder it was so hungry.

14th December 2009, 3:34 PM
Snorlax was very hungry, it was strange that he ate everything, even whole islands...
And i loved to see TR in his costum

15th December 2009, 5:55 PM
Great episode although we've seen this before.

I loved that Snorlax could swim, I always thought it was too heavy for that. I liked that Ash caught it and it became important later on.

Loved Jigglypuff too, 8/10

7th February 2011, 12:58 PM
Finally Ash catches a Snorlax in this episode. It was bizarre though how Ash was able to not fall asleep during Jigglypuff's sound and then still being able to catch the Snorlax.


25th April 2011, 6:12 AM
Oh my goodness!
Ash critical captured a Snorlax!

He did something that wasn't even that heard of then!

7th May 2011, 2:06 PM
I really like this episode overall very funny. Ashame how Snorlax wasn't on his team as often as I would of liked it to.

3rd September 2011, 1:43 PM
This episode was very funny, I especially liked the part where Ash caught Snorlax, and where Snorlax almost ate Goldeen

14th September 2011, 12:55 PM
Loved this episode! Snorlax was so funny - I loved how it did things like flattening Bulbasaur, trying to eat Goldeen, etc. And actually seeing a Snorlax swimming was pretty memorable.
Needless to say, I was happy wen Ash caught it.

3rd November 2011, 9:06 PM
I didn't like this episode but I didn't hate it either. Snorlax trying to east Goldeen was pretty funny but a lot of the episode wasn't very memorable.

21st January 2012, 4:44 PM
lol @ Snorlax trying to eat Goldeen. I liked this episode. It was a funny one and Ash gets one of his best Pokémon! I'm still impressed that a Snorlax can swim. It doesn't seem like it should be possible with a Pokémon like that.

30th January 2012, 3:53 PM
This episode was so funny! It's always nice to see Jigglypuff make another random appearance. Ash catching Snorlax was nice too.

6th February 2012, 7:52 PM
I have this awesome episode on DVD. Snorlax trying to eat Goldeen was really funny! Good episode for Ashyboy to catch Snorlax.

4th September 2012, 10:40 PM
I always loved Snorlax. A combined definition of hilariousness and laziness can be applied to this Pokémon. I loved how this episode primarily focused on how rampaged Snorlax's can be and I can't help to say that I love Jigglypuf's running gag so far.

Snorlax almost made a meal out of Goldeen. I wish it showed more emotion while almost becoming lunch. xD It knows not to chow down on Staryu. :)

14th July 2013, 4:09 AM
This is the episode where Ash catches Snorlax, and it was a funny episode. Snorlax almost ate Goldeen in this episode, I am glad it didn't became his meal. Snorlax swimming was impressive.

15th October 2014, 4:53 AM
It was pretty funny when Snorlax was flattening every Pokemon sent to bring it down. :)

2nd November 2014, 3:21 AM
I thought it was ironic that Ash and friends wanted this Snorlax to fall asleep in the end; it was basically the opposite of what happened in the Kanto Snorlax episode. Anyway, it was sad seeing Snorlax go from island to island eating all those grapefruit; I felt bad for Ruby, but at least new grapefruit trees started to grow.
