60HP is wicked, he escapes the wrath of Rayquaza's

Although the attack maxing at 60 seems an attractive
option, the cost is high. Playing Munchlax in your deck
does make Snorlax boost-able - his big attack will do
more damage and strength turn two. A feasible quick win
does not warrant his popularity however, Munchlax's hand
draining attack is nasty.
3/5 Generous, hope, boost ftw.

OK, here we go, the biggest of the babies! This should
be good after dealing with the Squirrel!!!
60 HP Baby that can erase its damage when it evolves to
Snorlax...hmmm...I could be tempted here.
OK, and now we have a first attack that causes you to
toss cards from your hand to flip 2 coins, for up to 60
Hmmm...this could take a little more analysis than
There are a lot of decks that could benefit from this
discard...Infernape LVL X, Bannette EX, Dragonite Delta,
Blaziken PK...this will have to be considered, yes?
60 HP with the new weakness rules means it cannot get
KOd by a Tyrogue (sorry, meant Riolu) in a hit, or a
Machop with a Strength Charm.
Snorlax, some people love, I am not one of 'em...but heh...
This one kind of tears me up...
Unlimited...NO use here, 1/5
Modified...currently 2.5/5 I am going to say this has
potential, but I may just not be fully appreciating it
yet. Ness, Jimmy, Chuck, Steve, feel free to come over
the top of me here.
Limited...4/5 big basic, nice first attack, and you CAN
get rid of cards in Limited usually!
There we go! 1002 down!!
Munchlax Lv.8 Diamond & Pearl
Greeting Pokemon fans. The COTD today is one that
I’m sure you already know how bad he is. The attack
Heaves (Lol a pun,) the retreat is to big, no
resistance, and a horrible evolution.
Stick to something else that is better.
Um… Nice picture?
2 Much retreat (It’s another one)
Unlimited – Ha ha ha… oh… that’s a good one. 1/5
Modified – Make a better Snorlax that can abuse
Limited – No. You like your hand. 1/5
That’s it. Over and out,
“Wear short sleeves! Support your right to bare
Today’sCard Of The Day is…Munchlax
from Diamond & Pearl
This guy has
great potential as a starter in a few decks. Of course
the standard baby rule.. But a baby at 60HP at his
attack may not be much to look at but let’s look closer.
“Heave” discard any 2 cards then flip 2 coins it does 30
time number of heads. Because you can discard any two
cards, any pokemon that counts the discard for damage is
loving it. Add the fact that you can do a possible 60
for 1 colorless energy, and heal up to 50 damage when
evolve. I see a few deck that can use him
Works well anything counting discard.(slowking, Banny
ex, delcatty, nidoqueen)
Modified: 3/5 He is a set up pokemon, he won’t win any
games, but he will set up someone who will.
Limited:2/5 if you attack with him you will deck
yourself, but you might get lucky on your head flips
$2.75 (Plus or minus $3)

Hey Everyone time to close the review week and were
closing it off with a Pre-Evolution to Snorlax the
Heaviest Pokemon of Generation One. His Name Is Munchlax
and if the Name didn’t tell you he was linked to Snorlax
his Appearance sure will.
Anyway on to the Card it’s a Colorless as Expected with
60Hp, a Weakness of Plus 10 Fighting and No Resistance
and a retreat cost of 2. Its Pokepower which Upon
evolution into Snorlax completely heals him of all
Damage, could be useful in a Snorlax Oriented Deck
otherwise its kind of useless if you ask me. His Attack
is alright at First glance one colorless for 30* Damage
but then you read the Text, Must Discard 2 Cards and
flip 2 coins, the attack does 30 times the number of
heads….. Now I know Pokemon isn’t as bad as YuGi-Oh with
the whole Hand management +1 this or -2 that but Still
for a Discard of 2 cards I want to be guaranteed some
damage not just a chance to do Damage, on the plus side
the attack does only take one Colorless energy. Could be
better but Whatever right?
Unlimited: 4/5 Its actually good here. We got Bill,
Professor Oak, and more draw power to give us extra
cards for discarding, as well as Some Snorlax to make
his Pokepower more useful.
Modified:2/5 Less Snorlax Here so the Pokepower loses
some value and we also lose the best Draw power in The
Game, Sorry if you want to use Snorlax here id Just use
Snorlax and skip this little guy.
Limited: 3/5 There should be better options here to but
less of them, one copy I guess isn’t to bad early on he
could net you a Prize or 2 if your lucky with the coin
