Slaking (Japanese: ケッキング Kekkingu) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

This Pokémon has a gorilla-like appearance. Slaking are large, bulky, ape-like bipedal Pokémon. Slaking's fur are mostly colored light brown except for the lighter colored hands, feet, face and chest, and it's white collar that begins at the top of it's head, downwards. In the anime and Pokémon GO, Slaking's fur are brown.

The color of its nose are light pink in both games and Pokémon GO but in the anime it was pink.

Behavior

During most of the day, Slaking lolls around and sleeps. It is considered the laziest Pokémon, but even when it is lounging it's actually saving energy. In truth, it can exert a lot of power by releasing the built-up energy all at once, and can regain lost energy through the use of its former signature moveSlack Off. It only moves around when there is no more food within reach for it to eat.

Habitat

Slaking lives in forests.

Diet

It feeds on grass and ripened fruit that falls from trees.

Natural abilities

It has the ability Truant, which lets it attack every other turn, however, its superb stats (Attack and Speed especially) more than make up for this drawback. While this Pokémon doesn't appear to do much most of the time, it has immense physical strength, stamina and, surprisingly, enough speed. Much like other normal types, it can be taught quite a number of elemental attacks. It has the highest stats of any non-legendary Pokémon.

Evolution

Slaking is the evolved form of Vigoroth once level 36 is reached. It is the final form of Slakoth.
