Munchlax (Japanese: ゴンベ Gonbe) is a Normal-type Pokémon. It was the first Generation IV Pokémon to be revealed to the public, in May 2004.

Biology

Physiology

Munchlax looks somewhat like a blue and tan baby Snorlax with two protruding teeth, closed eyes (in the game) and long toenails.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Munchlax's abilties are Thick Fat, which raises its resistance to Fire-type and Ice-type moves, and Pickup, in which it will randomly pick up items while the player is walking.

Behavior

Munchlax behaves quite opposite of its evolution, Snorlax, as it is somewhat hyperactive, though it is very similar with its eating patterns. It does not mind walking and running from place to place as it looks for food.

Habitat

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 of honey trees, although this is not officially confirmed.

Diet

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.

In the anime

A Munchlax first appeared in Destiny Deoxys, where it evolved into a Snorlax to help Ash. May currently owns a Munchlax, which she captured in Berry, Berry Interesting.

In the manga

Diamond owns a Munchlax

In the TCG

Munchlax has just recently appeared on an English TCG card in the Diamond and Pearl set as a rare card, knowing only the move Heave and possessing the baby evolution Poké-power. It has also 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.

Trivia

  • Munchlax was the first Generation IV Pokémon to be revealed.
  • Munchlax's English name was revealed on 10th September 2004.

Origin

Munchlax is based on a baby bear.

Name origin

Munchlax's name is a combination of munch, to chew on food, and relax. Its Japanese name is likely a combination of Snorlax's Japanese name, Kabigon, and baby. It may also be from 権兵衛 gonbee, popular Japanese name for peasants in the old days. Its Korean name, Meokgoja, literally translates as "eat and sleep".
