May caught Munchlax in the episode Berry Berry Interesting. Munchlax was the only Pokémon May could find that liked her custom Pokéblocks, May's Purple Surprise. So she wanted to catch it. May threw a Poké Ball at it but Munchlax ate the Poké Ball. It then activated from inside Munchlax, and it was caught.

Munchlax seemed to take a liking to Max, spending a lot of time with him. Munchlax was also the only one of May's Pokémon that was not used in her first Grand Festival.

Munchlax was one of the Pokémon May took with her when she traveled through the Kanto region. May has also entered Munchlax in a Contest in Harley Rides Again. It made it to the final round where it was up against Harley's Octillery. It put up a good fight before it eventually lost.

Munchlax continued traveling with May when she left to compete in the contests in Johto, and stayed with her when she returned to participate the Wallace Cup in A Full Course Tag Battle!.

Moves used


  • Munchlax was the first Generation IV Pokémon to be caught by a main character.
  • Munchlax seemed to obtain a counterpart in Dawn's Swinub in Hungry for the Good Life!. Both are gluttonous and have a love for their region's Pokémon delicacy.
  • Despite the fact that in the games Munchlax (along with Shuckle) is the slowest Pokémon, May's Munchlax appears to be quite the quick runner.
