How to evolve Munchlax into Snorlax in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

How to evolve Munchlax into Snorlax in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

With the Teal Mask DLC in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, both Munchlax and Snorlax are making their way back to the franchise. They are two of the many Pokemon returning in the expansion. Debuted in Gen 1, its pre-evolution, Munchlax, was introduced in Gen 4. And this pre-evolution Pokemon is one of the rarest Pokemon of all time.

In this article, we’ll take a look at how you can find Munchlax and then evolve it into the iconic Gen 1 Pokemon, Snorlax.

Where Can I Find Munchlax?

Players can find Munchlax in the wilderness and capture it with a Pokeball.  The second way to go about this is to visit the northeast of Mossui Town. There, at one of the stalls at the Kitakami Hall, check out the in-game minigame called Ogre Oustin’. After completing the ten rounds of the game, players will be rewarded with a shiny Mounchlax. However, you need to play the game on hard mode to obtain it. This will be a level 1 Pokemon, who knows two moves: lick and tackle.

Evolving Munchlax in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

To evolve Munchlax to its next and final stage, Snorlax, players must spend a lot of time with it. This is one of the few Pokemon that evolves only after attaining a certain amount of Happiness/Friendship level. Upon achieving peak happiness, it will evolve into the final stage of Snorlax.

Here are some tips that can help you strengthen your relationship with Munchlax to facilitate a smoother and faster evolution:

  • When in a battle, do not let it faint
  • Use it in battles
  • Continue to raise its Pokemon levels
  • Prioritize it in auto-battling
  • Give it the Soothe Bell item
  • Take it out for picnics
  • Feed it sandwiches

Additionally, players can also use the Pokemon Wash feature to raise friendship levels with Munchlax.
