How to Get Munchlax in Pokemon Sun and Moon
Munchlax is an adorable Pokemon, but more than that it's the pre-evolution of Snorlax. And you can actually get one off rip in Pokemon Sun and Moon to get you started off right.
For anyone who purchases Pokemon Sun or Moon, you'll get the special little Munchlax in a much easier manner than you might guess. It's available from Day 1, and it's no ordinary Munchlax. It comes holding the Snorlium Z-Crystal, which you won't be able to get in-game otherwise, so you'll definitely not want to miss out.
The distribution begins today, November 18th (though I was able to get mine yesterday midday) and it will run through January 11, 2017. You'll need to access the special Mystery Gift function from the menu at the beginning of the game if you want to pick up the Munchlax holding the special Z-Crystal.
Turn on either Pokemon Sun or Moon and select the Mystery Gift option found via the start menu. Select the Get via Internet option and if connected to the internet your 3DS will call out and make a connection to the internet. It will find a Munchlax to receive and complete the process automatically. It will then advise you to go to your nearest Pokemon Center to speak to the delivery man who will be by the desk where you heal your Pokemon.
It doesn't matter which Pokemon Center you go to, but when you make it there speak to the representative. Keep in mind that you must have a full slot available in your party to receive the Munchlax. There is a PC to the right in the Pokemon Center to drop off Pokemon if you need room.
Munchlax is Level 5 and has the Thick Fat ability as well as Metronome, Happy Hour, Tackle and Hold Back. But the Snorlium Z-Crystal you receive isn't for use with Munchlax. You'll have to wait until Munchlax evolves into Snorlax to utilize it to the fullest. To do that you must max Munchlax's affection toward you via Pokemon Refresh or let it hold a Soothe Bell to raise the friendship meter.
When you do get a Snorlax somehow, use the Z-Crystal on it and it can use a Pulvering Pancake attack on enemies. Great success!
