Drowzee is a bipedal Pokémon that resembles a tapir. Its eyes are tired looking and it has a trunk above its mouth. Its arms are quite short in length and its hands each have three fingers. The upper half of a Drowzee's body is yellow and the lower half is brown, a wavy line separates the two halves. It has a round belly and its legs are quite stubby. Its feet are brown, except for its two toes, which are the same yellow color as the upper half of the body. The bottom of each foot has a small, round, pink colored pad in the middle of it.
Drowzee are able to put people to sleep. They can then sense the dreams the people are having, so they know what kind of dream they would be eating. Drowzee is also known to inexplicably conjure up poisonous gas.
Drowzee may hypnotize its enemies to eat their dreams, but it may also eat the dreams of persons that are naturally sleeping. When it twitches its nose, it can tell where someone is sleeping and what kind of dreams the person is having. If a person’s nose becomes itchy when they are sleeping, it is said to be a sure sign that a Drowzee is standing above their pillow and trying to eat their dream through the person’s nostrils. Drowzee has certain preferences for the dreams it eats, and it is known to love fun dreams and rarely eat the dreams of adults, as the dreams of children are seemingly tastier. Drowzee remembers every dream it has eaten, and may show dreams it has eaten in the past to a person that often sleeps by it.
Wild Drowzee live in very tall grass, by muddy rivers, in savannas, and occasionally in ancient temples and tombs. Drowzee are most commonly found in Kanto and Johto.
