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

It evolves from Vigoroth starting at level 36. It is the final form of Slakoth.

Biology

Slaking is a large, bulky, ape-like bipedal Pokémon. Most of its shaggy fur is brown, along with the semi-circle patterning under its eyes. Its face, chest, hands, and feet are lighter in color. Its brows are thick and jutting, and it has a large, pink, pig-like nose. Around its neck is a white collar of fur that extends over the top of its head before ending in a small tuft. It has large, five-fingered hands and two-toed feet.

During most of the day, Slaking lolls around and sleeps. It is considered the laziest Pokémon, but even when it is lounging it's saving energy. It can exert a lot of power by releasing built up energy all at once, and can regain lost energy through the use of its former signature moveSlack Off. Slaking lives in forests, where it feeds on grass and ripened fruit that falls from trees. It only moves around when there is no more food within reach for it to eat.

In the manga

 
Slaking in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Norman's Slaking

Norman's signature Pokémon is a Slaking, just as in the games. Although it would seem that its Ability would be of major hindrance, he shows that by having a Spinda tag alongside it and use Skill Swap in times of need, its impressive strength and speed would be wielded to their maximum. Additionally, the move Bulk Up allows it to bolster its stats even more.

Emerald used a Slaking during his Battle Factory challenge. Thanks to Slack Off, it was able to outlast a Hitmonlee despite its type and speed disadvantages. After the battle, it was swapped with a Linoone.

Palace Maven Spenser also used a Slaking against the young boy, but their battle was not seen.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Slaking was owned by Rydel's rival in Serious Bicycle Match!

In the TCG

In the TFG

One Slaking figure has been released.

Trivia

  • Slaking has several similarities to Regigigas. They are both Normal types, have hindering abilities (Truant and Slow Start), have the highest Attack base stat out of all Normal-type Pokémon, and have the same base stat totals.
  • Outside of Legendary and Mythical Pokémon and Mega Evolution, Slaking has the highest base stat total of all Pokémon.
  • pre-alpha sketch from the development of Capsule Monsters depicts a Pokémon that bears a slight resemblance to Slaking.

Origin

It appears to draw inspiration from sloths and some form of ape. The inspiration from sloths makes it somewhat resemble a Megatherium, also known as the Giant Ground Sloth; however, it more closely resembles a gorilla.

Name origin

Slaking is a combination of slake (to slacken) or a corruption of slack (to become lazy) and king. It may also be a play on slacking.

Kekking may be a combination of 欠勤 kekkin (not showing up for work) and king.
