Appearances

Anime

Hypno first appeared in the anime episode Hypno's Naptime. In this episode, Hypno's abilities had a strange side effect on many of the children in the local town, causing them to run off to a secluded garden and act like various Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Hypno's PokéDex entry tells about it accidentally taking a child away. A clothing-line named Pokémon 151 released a shirt with a design resembling such.
    • Ominously, this design is the only shirt not to be resealed in the United States.
  • Hypno's voice in the anime bears a striking resemblance to horror film icon Peter Lorre's, just as its pre-evolutionary form Drowzee's voice resembles Bela Lugosi's.
  • Although the Pokédex has mentioned time and time again that Hypno is a very dangerous Pokémon, its entries in the Alola games reveal that they rarely hurt humans and can in fact be useful to humans.
  • Its Sun entry reads, "While it is an extremely dangerous Pokémon, people who are in need of a good, sound sleep call it their savior."
  • Its Ultra Moon entry reveals its usefulness in hospitals to doctors and patients suffering with insomnia or other sleep-related problems.
  • Hypno and its pre evolution, Drowzee, are both based on a nightmare eating spirit from Japanese folklore called the Baku.

Origin

Hypno may be based on tapirs, seeing how its pre-evolution resembles one and they are often associated with sleep and dreams in Japanese mythology, especially the Baku, a spirit in Japanese mythology that resembles a tapir and eats the dreams of those who call upon it. Its appearance is also similar to that of a goblin.

Etymology

Hypno's English name is taken from the part, Hypno of the word of Hypnosis.
