Slaking is a Normal-type Lazy Pokémon.
Slaking is a large, bulky, ape-like bipedal Pokémon. Most of its fur is brown, along with the semi-circle patterning encircling its eyes. Its face, chest, hands, and feet are lighter in color. Its brows are thick and jutting. It has a white collar of fur around its neck, extending toward the top of its head in a small tuft. It also has a large, pink, pig-like nose.
Most of the day its lolls around and sleeps. It is considered the laziest Pokémon, but even when it is lounging it's saving energy to be able to strike back. It can exert a lot of power by releasing built up energy all at once. It only moves around when there is no more food within reach for it to eat. It eats grass and ripened fruit that falls down from trees. It is capable of regaining lost energy through use of its former signature move, Slack Off. It lives in forests.
