um...no

Snorlax @ Leftovers
Careful Nature
(not giving evs unless you ask)

-Body Slam/Return/Double-Edge
-Shadow Ball/Earthquake/Fire Blast (go with Sassy nature, if you use FBlast)
-Curse
-Rest

If this is for Netbattle, give it loads of HP, sp. defense and some attack. Maybe 8 evs in speed to outspeed the other curse laxes. If it is for ingame, breed with Slowpoke to get Curse. Rest is there since it is a tank. Body Slam for Parahax. Return is the most reliable and probably better of the three. Double-Edge if you are battling in ubers. Shadow Ball to stop Gengar ownage. Earthquake to stop Metagross, Tyranitar, Steelix ownage. Fire Blast 2HKOs Skarm with 40 HP.

I prefer my Lax to have:

Nature: Adamant
Item: Leftovers
M-Set: Curse/Rest/EQ/Shadow Ball

Lax does NOT do well with Spe Atk, even with something like Sassy. It's meant to be a PS. Shadow Ball is mainly there for Gar, since it can't be hit by Ground moves. However, if it's ingame, go with Return over Shadow Ball. For EV's maybe something like:

252 Atk/252 HP

Speed doesn't matter, since you've got Curse. Atk needs to be maxed though, and HP should be maxed too so you can take more damage while Cursing and Resting. Then Sweep with EQ/SB/Return. If it's competitve play, then you can go with LOG's EV set.

ever since when does curselax pack amnesia? Snorlax is one of the last things in the game that needs to up its special defense.

Curse
Return / Body Slam
Shadow Ball / Earthquake
Rest

There are other Snorlax sets like Starlax:

Fire Blast
Focus Punch
Return
Shadow Ball
@Leftovers

There's also sleeptalk snorlax which I don't like personally, but its pretty cool catching people with sleeptalk I guess.

The only problem is you risk using Rest when you don't need to, or a move that's useless and can't help at the moment like Curse. I think Snore is better than Sleep Talk, since you're guarenteed damage if you're not fighting a Ghost type.

Curselax (or any Lax for that matter) don't need any EV's in Spe Def. Max out either HP or Atk, and then split the remaining 252 between Def and the other stat you didn't max out. I prefer just sticking 252 in HP and Atk and 4 in Def, but that's me.

Curse

I don't think this one will work good.. Snorlax's SPD is already high enough to handle SP attacks.

Compare to use Curse? why don't u use Counter? (they both haxy anyway!)
