DO i see a metagame revolving entirely around Snorlax???? No because I hope we would ban it before then lol!! Its not like the metagame revolves around any of the current S tier pokes except arguably Heracross (keeping those Nidoqueen healthy) and even less arguably raikou (keeping those Swampert alive). I see snorlax directly countering a few s threats, Raikou and Zapdos and A threats, Chandelure, Shaymin and Roserade. Somewhat counters Togekiss and Slowbro and Froslass and Meleotta. Do i see it as a potential suspect??? yes but I see everything as potential suspects because you never know!! well it wont sweep any team unassisted obviously but it can support teams without too much assistance because it counters 90% of UUs special attackers even with SR on the field and still a huge majority with one spikes and SR on the field. By which i mean its just not going to be broken by special attackers like Nidoqueen or offensive P2 even with some hazards. I dont understand how you got the answer no to all your questions, especially when you ask "can it directly counter s and a threats?" Yes, yes it can unless you are putting forward almost unreasonably unfavorable circumstances for Snorlax (it doesn't counter Zapdos since it might be below 80% and Zapdos might be Modest Specs and Zapdos got up Sr and Zapdos got up one spikes!!!). I know lots of people like offensive lax for that pursuit (hehe die xatu, die) but its hard to ignore Snorlax's defensive capabilities which are so enhanced with rest Talk and lets it more reliably counter many many many more special attackers.
