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


This Pokémon has a gorilla-like appearance. Slaking are large, bulky, ape like Pokémon. They have a white collar of fur around their necks, and pig-like nose. The rest of their body is brown but its hands, feet, and stomach are a lighter brown.

Special 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.

In the anime

In the anime, May's father, Norman, has a Slaking, and it is first seen in Love, Petalburg Style!. In the following episode, Ash's Grovyle defeats it, earning Ash the Balance Badge.


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

Pokédex entries



Slaking's name strongly refers to it being the king of slacking off.


In the Generation 3 Pokémon games, Slaking has the highest base stats of any Pokémon, aside from the Legendary Pokémon.

Slaking´s Truant ability can be ignore if it is taught Giga Impact or Hyper Beam, due to their recharge turn.
