Description: Much, much smaller than Snorlax, Munchlax has a lot of eating to do before it can evolve. Fortunately, Munchlax has all the energy its evolved self lacks. This small, blue, cat-like Pokémon never stops on its quest for more food and it’s not at all picky about what form that food takes. Mold, spoiled food, and even poison, nothing seems to bother Munchlax’s stomach. It will even store extra food in its fur for later. The only Pokémon known to eat more than this little guy is its evolved form, Snorlax. As a baby Pokémon, Munchlax was discovered multiple generations after its evolved self and, in most games, can only be hatched, as opposed to caught in the wild.

Core Games

Munchlax in the core games

  • Sword Pokédex: Stuffing itself with vast amounts of food is its only concern. Whether the food is rotten or fresh, yummy or tasteless—it does not care.
  • Shield Pokédex: It stores food beneath its fur. It might share just one bite, but only if it really trusts you.
