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

It evolves into Hypno starting at level 26.

Biology

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

Drowzee is able to put people to sleep, and can then sense the person's dreams. This is so it knows what kind of dream it would be eating. It eats dreams through the victim's nose, so it is said that Drowzee is standing over a person's pillow if their nose itches while they are asleep. Drowzee has certain preferences for the dreams it eats, and it is known to love fun dreams and become ill from bad dreams. It will rarely eat the dreams of adults, as the dreams of children are seemingly tastier. Drowzee remembers every dream it has eaten, and may show past meals to a person that often sleeps by it. Drowzee lives in very tall grass, by muddy rivers, in savannahs, and occasionally in ancient temples and tombs.

In the anime

Major appearances

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. The Psychic Pokémon had parties in order to help them forget their sadness due to fact that the miners had left the town long ago. However, the constant partying was disturbing the Ghost Pokémon that lived in the abandoned mine.

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.

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. It also shares some traits with elephants.

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.
