Dream Eater (Japanese: ゆめくい Dream Eat) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Dream Eater only works if the target is asleep. Dream Eater inflicts damage and 50% of the damage dealt is restored to the user as HP. If this attack deals 1 damage, 1 HP will be restored to the user.

If Dream Eater breaks a Substitute, no HP will be restored to the user. If HP is restored to the user when its current HP is greater than its maximum HP, its current HP will be set equal to its maximum HP.

Dream Eater will always miss if the target is not asleep.

In Stadium, Dream Eater will always miss if the target has a Substitute.

Trivia

  • Even though the move is called Dream Eater, if the target is under the effect of Nightmare when it is hit by Dream Eater, the target will still be afflicted by a Nightmare.
  • Despite being a Template:Type2 move, the only Psychic-type Pokémon that can learn this move by levelling up are Ralts and its evolutions. Before Ralts was introduced in Generation III, this move wasn't learned by any Psychic-type Pokémon by levelling-up.
    • However, the Pokémon that learn this move by levelling up (Gastly, Hoothoot, Spiritomb and Darkrai) are all depicted as having some form of Psychic power.
  • Several of Drowzee's and Hypno's Pokédex entries say that they eat dreams. However, they cannot learn Dream Eater by leveling up.
