Hypno (Japanese: スリーパー Sleeper) is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Drowzee starting at level 26.

Biology

Hypno is a bipedal, humanoid Pokémon that has yellow skin. It has triangular ears with brown interiors, sleepy-looking eyes, and a large nose. On its neck, it has a ruff of white fur, which is longer on the female. Hypno has five fingers on each hand and holds a pendulum in its left. The pendulum resembles a flat, silver ring and is used for hypnotism. Hypno is never seen without it. It has three toes on each foot, which also have a pink pad on the undersides.

Hypno is able to put people to sleep by swinging its pendulum. It is known to reside away from humans and on less traveled roads. While it awaits its prey, it polishes its pendulum. If anyone comes by, Hypno will hypnotize them and eat their dreams. It carries away people having good dreams and is even known to have stolen a child at one point. However, in the Alola region, it preys primarily on Komala, and cases of Hypno targeting humans are notably rare. Some Hypno are even known to assist doctors in hospitals when their patients cannot sleep at night.

Major appearances

In Hypno's Naptime, the members of the Pokémon Lover's Club of HopHopHop Town were using a Hypno and Drowzee to help them with their sleeping problems. However, the "Sleep Waves" from Hypno were also causing children to act like Pokémon and draining the energy of Pokémon in the local Pokémon Center. Drowzee eventually managed to fix this problem.

In Playing with Fire, Harrison used a Hypno during his Silver Conference battle against Ash. It was able to defeat Totodile before losing to Snorlax.

In Fear Factor Phony, a Hypno lived in an abandoned mining colony with other Psychic-types.

In Mission: Total Recall!, Faba first used a Hypno in an attempt to wipe Lillie's memories. Gladion stopped it by defeating it with his Silvally. It made further appearances in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon.

Trivia

  • Hypno's Red, Blue, and LeafGreen Pokédex entries make reference to it using "PSI moves", possibly indicating an early name for the Psychic type in English.

Origin

Hypno is based on a tapir, hypnotist, and baku, or dream eater spirit, of Japanese mythology. It also looks similar to a proboscis monkey. Hypno's long, hooked nose and white frill could also be based on a vulture, such as Rüppell's vulture. Aspects of Hypno's behavior also resemble various fairies, goblins, bogeymen, and other supernatural entities in European folklore.

Name origin

Hypno is a shortening of hypnosis. It could also be derived from Hypnos (Greek: Ὕπνος Sleep), the personification of sleep in Greek mythology.

Sleeper is literally sleeper, one who sleeps.
