Slaking (ケッキング Kekkingu?, Kekking in original Japanese language versions) are one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the multi-billion-dollar[1] Pokémon media franchise—a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards, and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. The purpose of Slaking in the games, anime, and manga, as with all other Pokémon, is to battle both wild Pokémon—untamed creatures encountered while the player passes through various environments—and tamed Pokémon owned by Pokémon trainers.[2] It's name is probably a portmanteau of the words 'slack' and 'king'. It may also be a play on 'slacking'. Image File history File links Slaking. ... This is a complete list of Pokémon which appear in the National Pokédex as of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. ...

Biological characteristics

Slaking, though it evolves out of Sloth Pokémon, is much larger and more muscular than a real sloth, and is anthropomorphicized and more gorilla-like but still has some traits of sloths. Something to notice in both the anime and in the video games is that Slaking's eyes have pupils in the video game sprites. In other pictures, Slaking's pupils are smaller than in the video games. Slaking is noted for having the third highest attack stat out of all Pokemon - and this may explain is laziness: it's so strong it does not put in half of the effort to fight. Anthropomorphism, also referred to as personification or prosopopeia, is the attribution of human characteristics to inanimate objects, animals, forces of nature, and others. ...


In the video games

Slaking has incredibly high Attack and Hit Points, as well as high Defense, Special Attack and Speed, with its offensive power rivaling that of legendary Pokémon such as Rayquaza or Groudon. Slaking was previously noted for having the second-highest Attack stat of all Pokémon, surpassed only by Deoxys in Attack Form; with the introduction of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl however, this position has been taken by Rampard.

When Team Rocket's plan was exposed, the local Slaking, Vigoroth, Aipom, and Mankey attacked the Slaking robot and brought it down. That episode and it's title were a parody of "King Kong."
