    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.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    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.
    Yeah!

    ^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 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 , 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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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...

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

    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.
