60HP is wicked, he escapes the wrath of Rayquaza's special circuit (though a cursed stone and you've had it).

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 damage...

Hmmm...this could take a little more analysis than usual.

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)
Bad attacks
Horrible evolution
Unlimited – Ha ha ha… oh… that’s a good one. 1/5
Modified – Make a better Snorlax that can abuse evolution. 1/5
Limited – No. You like your hand. 1/5
That’s it. Over and out,
“Wear short sleeves! Support your right to bare arms!”

Today’s Card 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


Combos: 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


Current ebay Value: $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 flips.
