Sorry for the image quality, it was the best I could find. As you can see, The Snorlax-GX box comes with 4 packs, 2 of them clearly XY-Evolutions, an XY-Evolutions Snorlax, a Snorlax-GX card, and lastly, a giant Snorlax-GX.

Snorlax

Snorlax is a huge, dark blue-green Pokémon with a cream-colored face, belly, and feet. Its body is composed of mostly its belly, where most of its fat reserves accumulate. Its head is large, with small, pointed ears and two pointed teeth protruding from its lower jaw. It has large, hind feet with three claws and a circular brown paw pad, and its arms and five foreclaws are short.

Snorlax is often found in mountains and forests. It wakes up only to eat and seldom for exercises. It is not a picky eater, as its strong stomach allows it to eat even moldy food without feeling any ill effects. When hungry, it is not satisfied until it consumes 900 lbs. of food. Snorlax is docile enough to let children and small Pokémon bounce on its large stomach.

Conclusion

Snorlax-GX is cool, that’s for sure. However, I really cannot see how it could be a threat, unless some new way to attach multiple energies per turn comes out. Still, I really like the card.
