In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, there are a bunch of different and unique moves that can be taught to your Pokemon with the help of TMs. These ‘Technical Machines’ are one-time-use items that you use on your Pokemon to make them learn a certain move.

TMs are found all over the Sinnoh region, some discovered through exploring in the overworld, and some given to you by NPCs. If you are wondering where to find the Hypnosis TM in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, then just read on ahead!

Where to Find the Hypnosis TM in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

This may come as a disappointment to you, but Hypnosis is not a TM in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This means that there is no way to teach your Pokemon the move through a TM, as it doesn’t exist.

Furthermore, there are no move tutors that teach the move Hypnosis as well. Your best bet is to capture a Pokemon that learns Hypnosis naturally, like a Poliwag or a Drowzee, and train it up till it learns the move.

What is the Move Hypnosis?


EffectThe user employs a hypnotic suggestion to make the target fall into a deep sleep.

As evident from the description, the move Hypnosis applies the ‘Sleep’ status condition on your foes, which makes it so that they will be immobilized and unable to make a move until they wake up. The Sleep status can last anywhere between 1-3 turns when applied on a foe.

Hypnosis should be used with caution, however, as the move is quite inaccurate—having an accuracy of only 60—and will miss the target often.
