Nintendo and Pokémon Company International have revealed a unique and exclusive offer to those who purchase Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon by Wednesday, January 11, 2017. Those who do will receive Munchlax, which evolves into Pulverizing Snorlax, which will be received by players via internet connection upon early purchase.
The Normal type Pokémon Munchlax unsurprisingly has a huge appetite, his description is listed as “Munchlax is a big eater that wolfs down its own weight in food once a day, gulping it down practically without chewing! It also hides food under the hair on its body. But then forgets about it…”. The early bonus Munchlax will be holding a special item called Snorlium Z. When Munchlax evolves into Snorlax the Snorlium Z being held allows the Pokémon to use its Z-Move Pulverizing Pancake.
As for its other moves, Munchlax will know the move Hold Back, which is exclusive to the bonus also. The attack leaves opponents with just 1HP which can reliably weaken an opposing Pokémon, which comes in particularly handy when trying to catch powerful ones in the wild. The bonus Munchlax will also know the move Happy Hour, which rewards trainers twice as much prize money after winning a battle.
Pokémon Sun and Moon will release on Nintendo 3DS on November 23, 3016.
