Why isn't immunity snorlax used more?

#1jolteonsockPosted 1/22/2014 10:05:36 PM
Maybe it's just my particular set but I feel like immunity really helps. The team I run him on is especially bulky and on the slower side so I get hit with toxic a lot to wear em down. This is my snorlax:

Snorlax @ immunity careful leftovers 252 hp/252 sp def/4 def/atk
return
crunch
curse
yawn/rest

without fear of toxic, he's able to set up or swap in on a special attacker and sweep late game given an enemy pokemon with burning moves are taken out. Rest is probably better since after a few curses it can recover and endure whatvever while it sleeps but on showdown I go yawn. It forces switches and lets me get a curse in on the switch, or another yawn if it's something I want asleep.

rest and immunity are not a great synergy, and ice/fire moves plague every meta too

...if you have rest, why do you need immunity?

I don't typically run rest, I typically run yawn but I figured some people don't like it and would prefer another move. I guess I could see where it might be situational to have it over other moves though.

Thick fat is a free resistance to fire and ice moves.. who wouldn't want that? Besides, most things go for burns or paralysis this Gen.

He's not used any more because of him lacking a reliable recovery option. It just isn't viable in the post gen 4 hyper offensive metagame.
