Yawn (Japanese: あくび Yawn) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In the turn that Yawn is used, the only effect will be the user yawning at the target. At the end of the next turn, the target will fall asleep unless it gets affected by another status condition before or a status-protecting move is used (like Safeguard or Uproar).

Yawn will fail immediately if the target is under any other major status condition, or when used against a Pokémon with Insomnia or Vital Spirit as its ability.

In the anime


Pokémon

Slugma. Slugma belches up a large bubble which drifts into someone's face, bursts, and then makes the target drift into slumber a few seconds later.

Snorlax. Snorlax spits many pink bubbles, each of which drifts into someone's face, bursts, and then makes the target drift into a slumber a few seconds later.

Hippopotas. Hippopotas belches up a large bubble which drifts into someone's face, bursts, and then makes the target drift into slumber a few seconds later.

Trivia

  • 400 years before the events of Generation I, a drought hit Azalea Town in Johto. A Slowpoke yawned, and the rain came. This is why it is so honored in Azalea. This, however, has nothing to do with the in-game effect of the move Yawn, nor the special abilities of Slowpoke.
