Early Buyers of Pokémon Sun and Moon Will Receive an Exclusive Munchlax

Trainers who purchase Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon by Wednesday, January 11, 2017, are eligible to receive an early purchase bonus via their Internet connection, a Munchlax that evolves into Pulverizing Snorlax!

This Munchlax is holding a special item called Snorlium Z. By evolving Munchlax into Snorlax and having it hold the Snorlium Z, Snorlax becomes able to use a special Z-Move, Pulverizing Pancake.

Z-Moves are major new Pokémon moves that are used in the Alola region. Trainers send a natural power called Z-Power to their Pokémon to power up their Pokémon moves. Because it requires all the combined power of the Pokémon and its Trainer, a Z-Move can only be used once per battle. However, Z-Moves are considerably more powerful than any previously known Pokémon moves.

There are Z-Moves that can power up each type, and these Z-Moves can be used by any Pokémon. However, some Pokémon can use exceptional Z-Moves that are not available to all Pokémon. The Snorlium Z gifted along with this bonus Munchlax is itself a special item, one that allows Snorlax to use a Z-Move that no other Pokémon can.

The Munchlax you can receive as an early purchase bonus will know the move Hold Back, which it could not normally learn. Hold Back is an attack move that leaves its opponent with just 1 HP. It can reliably weaken an opposing Pokémon, so it comes in handy when you’re trying to catch wild Pokémon. Battle with Munchlax a lot and catch lots of Pokémon.

The Munchlax being gifted will also know the move Happy Hour, another move it normally couldn’t learn. When you use Happy Hour during a Trainer battle, you’ll receive twice as much prize money after the battle. Collect lots of prize money to give yourself an advantage on your adventure!

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.


If your friendship with Munchlax is high enough when it levels up, it will evolve into Snorlax.

Sleepy Snorlax

Snorlax is a Pokémon that has blocked the path of many a Trainer. It’s not satisfied unless it eats in excess of 880 pounds of food every day. When it’s done eating, it promptly goes to sleep. Snorlax’s typical day consists of nothing more than eating and sleeping. It gets fatter and fatter, and it moves less and less.

Anytime it’s not eating, it’s sleeping. Snorlax is such a calm Pokémon that it’s usually not even bothered by children using its belly as a playground. Its stomach is extremely strong, and its digestive juices can dissolve any kind of poison, so eating rotten food doesn’t affect it.

Alolan Rattata

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, you’ll discover Rattata that are different from the Rattata you’ve met before. Unlike ordinary Rattata, urban areas are Alolan Rattata’s main habitat. They are nocturnal and live in nests of several dozen. Alolan Raticate serve as their bosses.

As a countermeasure to the exploding Rattata population in the Alola region, Yungoos were imported and released. To better avoid Yungoos, Rattata changed their preferred environments and circadian rhythms. These adaptations to their new environment led to their changed form.

Alolan Rattata have an excellent aptitude for sniffing out delicious fresh foods in Alola. They pay no attention to foods that aren’t fresh.
