Dream World coverstars Munna and Musharna were unveiled fairly early pre-release, fulfilling the wish of the picnicker on Route 10 of the Red/Blue (the NPC makes a comment about wanting a pink Pokemon with a floral pattern). While its lack of solid offensive moves doesn’t make it too appealing during the solo campaign, its high HP and fairly high defense/special defense stats give Musharna the potential to be quite annoying in competitive battles, plus Munna can learn Nightmare at level 29 which does 1/4 HP damage on sleeping foes. Its Dream World ability, Telepathy, also makes it a great choice for double and triple battles, allowing it to avoid damage from teammates’ attacks (e.g. Surf, Earthquake).

Munna appears as part of the story when you reach theDreamyard directly east of Striation City.
