Snorlax is one of the strongest Raid bosses available in game so far. With it being a tier 3 raid boss now it It is soloable, but will require a very strong team. To be safe we recommend 2 or 3+ trainers with high CP and high HP Pokemon that benefit from super effective moves against Snorlax. Unfortunately, there are no 2x super effective counters to Raid Snorlax, as he’s a normal type.

Snorlax Boss CP is 16684 and it can have Max Capture CP of 1843 and a boosted Max Capture CP of 2304 (Partly Cloudy weather).

The best Pokemon to fight Snorlax are Lucario with Counter / Aura Sphere, Conkeldurr with Counter Dynamic Punch, Mega Lopunny with Low Kick and Focus Blast, and the OG fighting type Machamp with Counter/ Dynamic Punch
