Sleeping Snorlax That Know the Move Yawn Are Appearing in Pokémon GO

For a limited time, Trainers can encounter sleeping Snorlax in the wild that know the special move Yawn.

Set your alarm, Trainers! You don't want to sleep through this special Pokémon GO event. From May 28, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. PDT through June 3, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. PDT, you'll have the opportunity to encounter sleeping Snorlax in the wild. Once you catch one of these snoozing Pokémon, it will wake up and be itching for a battle, so take a photo during your encounter if you want a memento of Snorlax's dozing appearance. As a bonus, any Snorlax caught during this event will know the move Yawn, which Snorlax cannot normally learn.

Speaking of sleeping, don't miss a related announcement at the Pokémon 2019 Press Conference.

Good luck catching those wild Snorlax, Trainers! We appreciate your assistance in clearing the road of these lumbering loafers!
