My Vaporeon, 2144 CP, 189 HP with water gun and hydro pump, he cannot beat 2450 CP snorlax with hyper beam during gym training :(

It always very close, like just a few bar left on both Pokémon.

Thing is that my Vaporeon is my strongest Pokémon, and already maxed out at trainer level 26.

Damn you snorlax, he was the least CP at that gym!

My other strong Pokémon is Exeggutor, which would be worse...

Try not getting hit as many times. That normally helps.

Hyper beam is just crazy strong. I tried fighting a 1040 wigglytuff with my 903 aerodactyl and it seemed to do over 60% damage. Normal vs Rock type. Had no chance to train and join that gym, as hyper beam killed all my other pokemon in one hit as well at the time.
Even tried dodging, but even standing on the side of wigglytuff I still got hit (though it seemed like the damage was halved). :\

Yeah, I tried to dodge, but still took some damage. I don't know what was the snorlax quick move, but that hyper beam was really hurt.

Just dodging isn't enough, and the positioning isn't relevant. You can be standing behind your opponent and he can still hit you. The mechanic is based off timing. What matters is when you dodge. The timings are different for each attack. The important ones to learn are the charge moves, and even then you only really need to master the popular ones: hyper beam, solar beam, hydro pump, heat blast, blizzard, stone edge, etc. The ones that will 1HKO you.

Machamp or other fighting types at high CP make short work of him.

Also dodge.

Snorlax is strong because his only weakness as a normal type is a fighting type pokemon. Combine that with his fat health pool and he becomes annoying to take down. If you're lucky and have a Machamp with cross chop, you can make snorlax your *!@#.
