Hypnosis is a non offensive Psychic-type move.


Hypnosis puts the target to sleep.

Pokémon with Insomnia, Vital Spirit or Sweet Veil as their Ability are unaffected by Hypnosis. Dark-types are affected despite the move being Psychic-type.


The user employs hypnotic suggestion to make the target fall into a deep sleep.
