Effect

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Generation VI list.

Generation II

Sleep Talk can only be used while the user is asleep and will fail if the user is not. Sleep Talk randomly chooses one of the user's moves other than Sleep Talk itself and uses it. PP will be deducted from Sleep Talk only, which means that it can be used to execute moves that have no PP left. If Rest is called, the user will regain HP normally.

Sleep Talk will not select itself, any move currently disabled, or any of the following moves:

Move Type
Bide  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Dig  Ground  Status {{{3}}}
Fly  Flying  Status {{{3}}}
Metronome  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Mirror Move  Flying  Status {{{3}}}
Skull Bash  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Sky Attack  Flying  Status {{{3}}}
SolarBeam  Grass  Status {{{3}}}
Razor Wind  Normal  Status {{{3}}}


Generation III

If Rest is called by Sleep Talk it will automatically fail. In Double and Triple Battles, because of the inability to select a target, the chosen move will always hit the opponent directly across from the user, if the move called normally hits only one Pokémon.

When using Sleep Talk while holding a Choice Band, the first use will work normally, but all subsequent uses will always fail, even if the user only has one move other than Sleep Talk. Sleep Talk can call a move with no PP remaining, but will fail to execute it due to a lack of PP.

Sleep Talk will not select itself, any move currently disabled, or any of the following moves:

Move Type
Assist  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Bide  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Bounce  Flying  Status {{{3}}}
Copycat  Normal  Status {{{3}}}

Skull Bash  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Sky Attack  Flying  Status {{{3}}}
SolarBeam  Grass  Status {{{3}}}
Razor Wind  Normal  Status {{{3}}}
Uproar  Normal  Status {{{3}}}


Generation IV

When using Sleep Talk while holding a Choice item, the first use will work normally, but all subsequent uses will always fail, even if the user only has one move other than Sleep Talk. Sleep Talk can call and successfully execute a move with no PP remaining.

Sleep Talk will not select itself, any move currently disabled, or any of the following moves:

Move Type Cat.

Bide  Normal  Physical {{{3}}}
Bounce  Flying  Physical {{{3}}}

Sleep Talk now works multiple times, if used while holding a choice item. Sleep Talk can now call and successfully execute a move that is disabled.

Sleep Talk will not select itself or any of the following moves:
