Another Pokemon of the Week

Well, I just decided to throw in a few more Pokemon strategies. Yeah, I'm that bored. Y'know, I don't think I'll ever post this kinda stuff once a week. Just get used to it. No one reads these things anyway.

Let's find out what the random number generator says... hmmm... no not that one... ahh... here we go.

The pokemon is #97: Hypno, the Hypnosis Pokemon.

... Ok... I guess that's an improvement. From an overgrown spider to a psychic pig thing.

Here are some sets I would recommend for Hypno Strategies:

Calm and Peaceful Hypnotist

Ability: Insomnia
Item: Leftovers

Shadow Ball
Focus Blast
Calm Mind

The idea of this set is pretty self-explanitory. All you have to do is pull up a few calm minds, then use your special attacks as needed. If only Hypno was a little bit faster...

The Faster Hypno

Ability: Insomnia
Item: Iron Ball

Psycho Cut
Fire / Ice / Thunder / Drain Punch
Trick Room

Use Trick Room to switch everyone's speed, using the iron ball to make you extremely fast. Use Fling to use a 200 power move that one time. Then, throw in a few other attack moves like Psycho Cut and something else, for type coverage.

The Classic Hypno

Ability: Insomnia
Item: Leftovers

Dream Eater
Focus Punch / Nightmare

This set relies on luck, yes, I know. No need for all two of the people who read the middle of the post to get emotional. Just hope that Hypnosis hits. It's fun to use if you can pull off the Hypnosis. Have fun with it.

Other Options:

Nasty Plot
Zen Headbutt
Switcheroo / Trick
Thunder Wave

All are perfectly good moves. Ya can throw them in if ya want. I'll let you do that.

Generally Hypno is a fun Pokemon to have, not especially powerful, but that's alright. Just don't throw him in a battle with legendaries, you'll be fine.

Counters: Anybody else with insomnia, but resists psychic. Honchkrow, Banette, and even that stupid bug I was talking about before, Ariados. If Hypno doesn't have Shadowball or Fling, Shedinja can murder it and its family.

If Hypno is ever in a battle against Scizor, Hypno is going to die. Skarmory can resist any move Hypno throws at it, and then attack with Night Slash. Sableye and Spiritomb can take any attack, but hate lucky Hynosises.

It's probably a good idea to have a chesto / lum berry around this Hypnosis Monster
