"Pokemon FireRed" is a role-playing game developed by Game Freak and released by Nintendo for the Game Boy Advance. The game allows players to catch and train Pokemon in an effort to become the top trainer in the region of Kanto. One of the more useful moves in this game is known as "Hypnosis," which can be used to put other Pokemon to sleep. This move can be easy to attain, as long as you know how.

Catch one of the following Pokemon: Poliwag, Gengar, Haunter, Ghastly, Drowzee or Exeggcute. If you capture Drowzee or Exeggcute, they will come with the "Hypnosis" move in their move set.

Level up your Pokemon, in the event that you have captured Poliwag, Gengar, Haunter or Ghastly. Poliwag and its evolutions will learn "Hypnosis" at level 16, Haunter and Gengar will learn the move at level 29 and Ghastly will learn the move at level 27.

Eliminate one of the four moves in your Pokemon's move set, in the event that it is full, in order to make room for "Hypnosis" once the Pokemon wants to learn the move.
