Card text

This Pokémon is both PsychicDarkness type
Dark Link
Flip a coin. If heads, choose an attack on 1 of your Pokémon in play that has Dark in its name (excluding this one). Dark Link copies that attack except for its Energy cost. (You must still do anything else required for that attack.) (No matter what type that Pokémon is, Dark Hypno's type is still PsychicDarkness.) Dark Hypno performs that attack.
Black Magic
Does 20 damage times the number of your opponent's Benched Pokémon.


This is the first Hypno card in a Generation III set to spell its pre-evolved form's name correctly. This is due to the Hypno card in EX FireRed & LeafGreen saying it evolved from "Drowsee".
