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

It evolves into Snorlax when leveled up with high friendship.

It was the first Generation IV Pokémon to be revealed to the public, in May 2004.

Contents

Biology

Munchlax is a teal Pokémon with a cream 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 feet with three clawed toes. The fur close to the bottom of a Munchlax seems to resemble a dress. Munchlax has two pointy teeth that stick out of its mouth even if closed.

It is a hyperactive Pokémon. It does not mind walking and running from place to place as it looks for food, but it is usually very slow moving. Munchlax tends to store food in its long fur, although it sometimes forgets about its hidden food. Its stomach allows it to eat nearly anything, even rotten food, and is indifferent to flavor. It can also eat many servings of food at a time without chewing, and rarely gets full. It eats the most food of any Pokémon besides its evolution, Snorlax.

Trophy information

"A Big Eater Pokémon. It's normally a slow-moving creature, but when it sees food it moves surprisingly fast. It's native in the Sinnoh region and can be lured out by coating certain trees with sweet honey. Once it grows attached to its trainer, it levels up and evolves into Snorlax."

Sun It needs to consume its own weight in food every day. As far as flavor is concerned, it's indifferent.
Moon When it finds something that looks like it might be edible, it goes right ahead and swallows it whole. That's why it gets fatter day by day.
Ultra Sun It hides food under its long fur, but it sometimes forgets about it and causes a stinky disturbance.
Ultra Moon Anything that looks edible, Munchlax will go on and swallow whole. Its stomach is tough enough to handle it even if the food has gone rotten.
Generation VIII Galar

Sword 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 It stores food beneath its fur. It might share just one bite, but only if it really trusts you.

Trivia

Origin

Munchlax is most likely based on a baby bear. Its eating habits correspond to those of bears preparing to hibernate, including the consumption of honey (Munchlax is found in honey-slathered trees). Its mask-like face and movepool evoke a larcenous character — perhaps a burglar.

Name origin

Munchlax is a combination of munch (to chew on food) and lax or relax.

Gonbe may be a combination of Kabigon (Snorlax's Japanese name) and baby. It may also derive from 権兵衛 gonbē, popular Japanese name for peasants in the old days.
