Munchlax (ゴンベ, Gonbe) is a fictional creature in the Pokémon franchise.

Origin[edit]

Munchlax is the baby form of Snorlax, and was the very first Generation IV Pokémon ever publicly revealed, making several appearances in Pokémon games even before its playable debut in the main-series games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Munchlax is categorized within the Pokédex at #446 as the "Big Eater Pokémon".It evolves into Snorlax when leveled up with high friendship. Munchlax is described as the "Big Eater" Pokémon, and all of its Pokédex entries deal with its eating habits.

Its "move" in Brawl, Pickup, is one of its possible abilities in the Pokémon games: a Pokémon with it might find an item after a battle, and, since Generation V, can pick up items discarded by other Pokémon during a battle.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Munchlax on Smashville.

Munchlax is one of the Pokémon that appears out of a Poké Ball. When summoned it wanders aimlessly around the stage, eating any items it finds excluding Poké Balls, Smash Balls, and collectibles (Trophies, CDs, and Stickers). If there aren't any items around for it to gobble up, Munchlax is effectively useless, much like Goldeen.

Trophy[edit]

A Big Eater Pokémon. It's normally a slow-moving creature, but when it spots food, it moves surprisingly fast. It's native to the Sinnoh region and can be lured out by coating certain trees with sweet honey. Once it's attached to its Trainer, it will level up and evolve into Snorlax.

Trivia[edit]

  • Munchlax and Snorlax are the only Poké Ball Pokémon that appear in the same game that share an evolutionary family.
    • The Munchlax evolution family is also one of three to have its entire family appear in one Smash game. The others are the Pichu evolution family, as, in Ultimate, Pichu and Pikachu are playable characters, with Alolan Raichu appearing as a Poké Ball summon, and the Riolu evolution family, as Riolu appears as a trophy in Brawl, where Lucario debuted as a fighter.
  • Munchlax is one of two Poké Ball Pokémon that uses an ability instead of a move, the other being Victini.
  • On Rumble Falls, Munchlax is unable to eat items thrown by players. It will chase after them, but stop and vibrate in place instead of eating the item.
