How to Get Snorlax in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

If you want to add the iconic sleepy Pokemon, Snorlax, to your Pokedex in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you’ll have your work cut out for you.

This, of course, means you’ll need to know where to catch Munchlax and how to evolve it into a Snorlax in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and this guide will explain exactly what you need to know to do just that.

For all but Whiteout Cave and Sunlit Cavern, you’ll need to slather honey on a tree nearby. Then, return 24 hours later and interact with the tree. You’ve then got a chance of Munchlax appearing which you can then catch in battle as you would any other Pokemon.

Evolving Munchlax into Snorlax in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

To evolve Munchlax into Snorlax, you’ll need to have it reach high Friendship with you.

There are a number of ways you can increase Friendship levels with a Pokemon, including:

  • Walking or cycling – every 200 or so steps, you’ll increase the friendship of all Pokemon in your party.
  • Use a Soothe Bell, found in the Pokemon Mansion on Route 212.
  • Give your Pokemon a massage at the masseur in Veilstone City.
  • Feed your Pokemon Poffins that they like.

Checking Pokemon Friendship Level

You can check your friendship level with any Pokemon by opening your Poketch and tabbing over to the screen with your Pokemon sprites moving around a screen. On this screen, hover the reticle over the Pokemon you want to check the friendship level of and press and hold A.
