Munchlax (ゴンベ Gonbe) is a Normal-type Baby Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Munchlax has a plump, 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.

Natural abilities

Munchlax has the same abilities as Snorlax, only it is much weaker. It can learn many different moves with TMs such as Solar Beam, Thunder, Focus Punch, and Brick Break.

It is known for its very high appetite and eats anything edible except for Pokémon and humans.

Evolution

Munchlax evolves into Snorlax with a high friendship level.

Appearances

Anime

May's Munchlax.

Main article: May's Munchlax

In the anime, Munchlax first appeared in Destiny Deoxys, where it evolved into a Snorlax to stay afloat in the Block Bot flood, making it the first Generation IV Pokémon to appear in the anime. May currently owns a Munchlax, which she captured in Berry, Berry Interesting. A trainer named Kylie owns a Munchlax, which was seen in A Full Course Tag Battle!.

Trainers with a Munchlax

Manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Diamond owns a Munchlax, which was his first Pokémon and is often seen eating with him. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, a Collector, Ruin Maniac, Psychic and Galactic Grunt are all searching for a Munchlax, which is said to be very rare. Its Pickup ability takes Hareta's Pokédex but Munchlax returns it later.

Trivia

  • Despite being a Generation IV Pokémon, it appeared in the anime during Generation III.
  • Munchlax is one of the 16 Pokemon to be made into a puppet in Japan.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Munchlax is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, instead of using a move, it uses its Pickup Ability to eat dropped items.

Origin

Munchlax's evolution, Snorlax is a caricature of Game Freak employee Kōji Nishino.[1] Therefore, Munchlax is presumably also based on him.

Etymology

  • Munchlax's name is a combination of munch and relax.
  • Gonbe is a portmanteau of Kabigon (Snorlax) and "baby."
