How so, specifically? I'm not really contesting, I just want to get another viewpoint and see what your experience says. My intuition has held that a Snorlax-less meta would lack its biggest offensive threat, and would in turn become the ultra-stall meta everyone stereotypically believes GSC to be. Either that, or Raikou just runs rampant. Either way, I can see how the lack of Snorlax balances things out, though it's definitely odd to say that the pokemon that absolutely defines the metagame is the force that balances it.
