The what? Anime?
It's a good point, actually. Gamefreak mighta meant it to be gen 3 like Wynaut, but was cut out of the game after the show was finished. Or they threw it in as an easter egg for gen 4. Or they just dropped the ball.
didn't they do the same thing with togepi?

Gamefreak wanted to showcase the new Generation. They used Munchlax to show off the new games. Why they did it exactly, I don't know for sure. But I'm pretty sure they used it to give a little introduction.Hope I helped!

Munchlax fact Bulbapedia (It was the first Generation IV Pokémon to be revealed to the public, in May 2004.)

Well I guess you first saw Munchlax in the destiny deoxys movie. The Movie was released
July 17, 2004 (Japan)

And Munchlax was revealed in May 2004

Hope I helped
