Biology

Slaking is a huge, heavy bipedal Pokémon that looks like an ape. The majority of its shaggy hair, as well as the semi-circle patterning beneath its eyes, is brown. It has a lighter complexion on its face, chest, hands, and feet. It features broad, protruding brows and a huge, pink, pig-like snout. A white fur collar wraps around its neck and reaches over the top of its head, terminating in a little tuft. It has huge hands with five fingers and two toes.

Slaking spends the most of the day lounging about and sleeping. It is regarded as the laziest Pokémon, yet even while resting, it conserves energy. It has a lot of power since it releases all of its stored energy at once. Slack Off was Generation III’s hallmark move. Slaking is found in tropical woodlands and feeds on grass and ripening fruit that falls from trees. It only moves when there is no more food around for it to devour.
