Drowzee (Japanese: スリープ Sleep) is a Psychic-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Hypno starting at level 26.

Biology

Physiology

Drowzee is a bipedal Pokémon that resembles a tapir. Its eyes are tired looking and it has a trunk above its mouth. Its arms are quite short in length and its hands each have three fingers. The upper half of a Drowzee's body is yellow and the lower half is brown, a wavy line separates the two halves. It has a round belly and its legs are quite stubby. Its feet are brown, except for its two toes, which are the same yellow color as the upper half of the body. The bottom of each foot has a small, round, pink colored pad in the middle of it.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Drowzee are able to put people to sleep. They can then sense the dreams the people are having, so they know what kind of dream they would be eating. Drowzee is also known to inexplicably conjure up poisonous gas.

Behavior

Drowzee may hypnotize its enemies to eat their dreams, but it may also eat the dreams of persons that are naturally sleeping. When it twitches its nose, it can tell where someone is sleeping and what kind of dreams the person is having. If a person’s nose becomes itchy when they are sleeping, it is said to be a sure sign that a Drowzee is standing above their pillow and trying to eat their dream through the person’s nostrils. Drowzee has certain preferences for the dreams it eats, and it is known to love fun dreams and rarely eat the dreams of adults, as the dreams of children are seemingly tastier. Drowzee remembers every dream it has eaten, and may show dreams it has eaten in the past to a person that often sleeps by it.

Habitat

Wild Drowzee live in very tall grass, by muddy rivers, in savannahs, and occasionally in ancient temples and tombs. Drowzee are most commonly found in Kanto and Johto, but have been sighted in Sinnoh on some occasions.

Diet

Drowzee made another appearance in Pikachu Re-Volts. Butch and Cassidy used a Drowzee to brainwash Pokémon into turning against their Trainers and obeying Butch and Cassidy instead.

Drowzee was living in an abandoned mining town with several other Psychic Pokémon in Fear Factor Phony.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Stadium, the Drowzee mini-game (Snore War) involved putting other players to sleep, and in the end, all the Drowzee would end asleep anyway. Ironically, in Generation III, Drowzee is given the Ability Insomnia making it impossible for it to fall asleep.
  • Although its artwork depicts it having three fingers, Drowzee's Red/Blue sprite depicts it having five fingers, and its Red/Green sprite depicts it having four fingers.
  • Drowzee and its evolved form are the only non-Poison-type Pokémon that are able to learn Poison Gas.

Origin

Drowzee is based on the Japanese myth of the baku, creatures who eat bad dreams of sleeping people. Originally, they were composite animals, but later became tapirs — pig-like animals with small trunks from South America and Southern Asia.

Name origin

Drowzee is a corruption of drowsy (dull with sleepiness). The zee could also be a reference to zzz (used to represent sleeping).

Sleep is literally sleep, but could also be named after Hypnos (Greek: Ὕπνος Sleep), the personification of sleep in Greek mythology.
