It is generally seen in urban city streets where it scrounges for food, even in trash cans. It is similar to Snorlax in this respect; it is almost always hungry.

In the anime

Munchlax first appeared in Destiny Deoxys. May currently owns a Munchlax, who appears in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

In the manga

In the TCG

Although Munchlax has not appeared yet in a localized card game expansion, it has appeared several times on Japanese promotional cards, including one appearance each in two promotional Japanese half-decks that have been released alongside the seventh and eighth Pokémon movies.

Pokédex entries
