To evolve Munchlax in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you’ll need to increase your friendship levels with the Pokémon. This can be done in a number of easy methods, some of which you may be doing without even knowing.

There are several ways to increase friendship with your Pokémon, but winning battles with Munchlax, gathering resources around Hisui with it, and feeding Munchlax EXP Candies are the best ways to go about it. You can purchase EXP Candies or find them as you progress through the game.

Once you’ve reached the right amount of friendship, Munchlax will be ready to evolve into Snorlax. If the process feels slow, you can always check your progress with the Friendship Checker.

Head to Jubilife Village and speak to the NPC standing outside the farms. They will check the friendship levels of your Pokémon and let you gauge how long you have to go until you can evolve Munchlax into Snorlax.

If you’re looking to catch yourself a Munchlax, you can find one early in the game at Deertrack Heights in Obsidian Fieldlands. For those later in the game, Snowfall Hot Spring in Alabaster Icelands is also another Munchlax spawn location.
