Munchlax (Japanese: ゴンベ Gonbe) is a Normal-type baby Pokémon. It evolves into Snorlax when leveled up with high friendship. It was the first Generation IV Pokémon to be revealed to the public, in May 2004.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Munchlax has a teal-colored body with a cream-colored spot on its chest. Its round head is teal in the top half and cream on the bottom half. It has big, round eyes and large pointy ears. It has five-fingered hands and cream-colored feet with three clawed toes. The fur close to the bottom of a Munchlax seems to resemble a dress. Munchlax has two pointy teeth that stick out of its mouth even when it is closed.

Gender differencesEdit

None.

Special abilitiesEdit

Munchlax can gulp down food without chewing.

BehaviorEdit

Munchlax behaves quite opposite of its evolution, Snorlax, as it is somewhat hyperactive. It is very similar with its eating patterns, however. It does not mind walking and running from place to place as it looks for food. Munchlax tend to store food in its long fur, although it sometimes forgets about its hidden food. It can also eat very many servings of food at a time, and rarely gets full.

HabitatEdit

Wild Munchlax can only be found in honey trees in the games, so it is apparent that they spend most of their time eating honey off honey trees, although this is not officially confirmed.

DietEdit

Main article: Pokémon food Munchlax eats the most food of any Pokémon besides its evolution, Snorlax. It will eat nearly anything. It can rarely become full and will eat constantly, unlike Snorlax, who eats in between sleeping.
