    I concur. Munchlax isn't very good in this meta for the single reason that it will lose to any and every fighting-type under the sun. I have a set:

    Croagunk (M) @ Eviolite
    Trait: Dry Skin
    EVs: 52 HP / 188 Atk / 116 Def / 116 SDef / 36 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Drain Punch
    - Sucker Punch
    - Fake Out
    - Payback

    We're actually pretty weak to Larvesta itself, Staryu is our only check and it cannot do its job reliably because of U-turn! Taillow will eventually die as well from repeated U-turns and SR damage, we need something more solid to take it on with! The same goes with Ponyta, only that Croagunk can actually revenge it.

    Well, we could put in Frillish or something to stop Larvesta, but who would we replace? Staryu? No. Larvesta? No. Bronzor? No. The only spot I see an opening for is Croagunk but I like the Fighting-type spot there. Staryu checks it fine since if SR is up larvesta can only switch in like twice.
