I'm trying to find a way to have my Gengar (both in Pokemon Sapphire Alpha or X) to learn a skill to make other Pokemon fall asleep.

Is there a way?

Gengar Learns Hypnosis at Lv.1.

If you already have a levelled Gengar, go to the Move Relearner in either of the games to relearn Hypnosis.

XY - Move Relearner is in the house north-east of the Pokémon Center in Dendemille Town.

ORAS - Move Reminder in the house in the north-west of Fallarbor Town.

You need 1 Heart Scale to remember moves.

  • thanks! do you know where is in pokemon alpha?

    ORAS - stands for Omega Ruby/Alpha Saphire. Which in your case is Alpha Saphire

    @FezVrasta From a competitive standpoint, Hypnosis isn't that great of a move due to its low accuracy. If you're building a Gengar for competitive reasons, it might be better to to leave the Sleep to another Pokemon, and let Gengar do what it does best - sweep with its array of high power, good coverage Special-Attacks

    @Robotnik probably he wants to exploit "Shadow Tag" ability of MegaGengar, with its high Base Speed and a bit of luck you can then sweep several Pokemon
