Munchlax is a rare spawn that shows up in the Obsidian Fieldlands. There's one good spot to use to maximize your chances of finding a Munchlax, so start off by heading to the Heights Camp. From there, head northwest of the camp to the location on the map above. You'll find two Pokemon at the edge of a cliff beside an acorn tree.

More often than not you'll find two Kricketots, or potentially a Zubat. In rare circumstances, you will hopefully find a Munchlax. If you don't find what you need, head back to the camp and return to Jubilife. Then head back to the Heights Camp to reset the Pokemon. Go back to the spot to try again, rinse and repeat until you find a Munchlax!

Thankfully, Munchlax is a pretty chill Pokemon. There isn't much cover, but if you give it a wide berth you should be able to approach it from the side. Smoke bombs will make this job easier, but it is doable without them. Sneak up alongside and hit it with a Great Ball or better to snag yourself a Munchlax.

That's everything you need to know to get yourself a Munchlax! For more tips, check out Pokemon Legends Arceus Shiny Hunting: How To Shiny Hunt In Hisui.
