Munchlax is the prevolution of fan favorite Snorlax, perhap the most American of Pokémon. Try not to imagine it, but when two of those morbidly obese Pokémon mate in the presence of the Full Incense, a Munchlax hatches from the resulting egg. Munchlaxes don't have the bulk to hibernate like their fatty fathers, and so they spend all their time gobbling down food to widen their waistline, so one day they too can spend all day sleeping and obstructing roadways.

Evolves into Snorlax when happy.
