    Munchlax (QC 3/3) [GP 2/2]

    Munchlax Going to seriously tone this down lol [Overview] <p>To put it bluntly, Munchlax is not a very good special wall. Despite having great HP and a usable Special Defense stat, the fact that it has no reliable recovery (not even Leftovers) and is easily worn down actually makes Munchlax a...
