Expect baby Snorlax to pop up in Pokémon Go

Got the munchies?

Everyone knows the best Pokémon is Snorlax, so I am delighted to report baby Snorlax will soon pop up in all-encompassing mobile game Pokemon Go.

Munch. Munch? Munch!

The Pokémon Go Holidays 2018 event kicks off 18th December, when ice-type pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild. These include Jynx, Sneasel, Swinub, Snorunt, Spheal and Snover (Snover is a new Gen 4 Pokémon). Expect to see other Pokémon get into the Christmas spirit, too. Pikachu in a Christmas hat? Sure!

Smoochum, Azurill and the aforementioned and adorable Munchlax will have a greater chance of hatching from 7km eggs, which can only be obtained by opening gifts.

Here's something useful: players will earn a free single-use Incubator once per day via spinning a photo disc on a PokéStop until 2nd January 2019.

There's more on the Christmas event bonuses coming to Pokemon Go on the official website, but for me it's all about baby Snorlax. According to Bulbapedia, Munchlax's stomach "allows it to eat nearly anything, even rotten food, and is indifferent to flavour. It can also eat many servings of food at a time without chewing, and rarely gets full".

Munchlax, then, is the Pokémon version of my one-year-old son.
