Pokemon Go Slaking: Type and Max CP

As a Normal-Type, Fighting moves deal 160% damage to Slaking, so be wary of them. On the flip side, pay no mind to Ghost-Type moves that'll only do 39% damage.

Pokemon Go Slaking: Best Moveset

Slaking's best quick move turns out, rather unsurprisingly, to be Yawn. One would guess spending 60% of your time doing one thing would make anyone pretty good at it, even if that thing is just yawning really loudly.

For charged moves, however, Slaking picks things up a notch with his most fitting move, the classic Hyper Beam. In combination, these two provide Slaking with a good amount of DPS to work with its Large HP. For trainers lacking Hyper Beam as an option, Earthquake and and Play Rough are also perfectly fine alternative.
