All Pokémon that can learn Hypnosis and False Swipe in Scarlet?

The following Pokémon can learn both hypnosis and false swipe in Scarlet.


Scarlet Pokémon- Gallade

It is a fighting/psychic-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation 4. Gallade learns hypnosis naturally and can learn false swipe from a TM.

It is also considered the best Pokémon for false swipes. It is the best Pokémon to consider if you want to put your enemies to sleep and then lower them to one health point without having to kill them.

This improves the catch chance.

Gallade resides in mountainous ⛰️ areas in Pokémon Scarlet.


Scarlet Pokémon- Breloom

It is a Fighting/Grass-type Pokémon that evolves from Shroomish and was introduced in Generation III. Breloom’s natural spotting ability makes it a strong contender for false swipe. This ability puts the opponent into paralysis.

It is important to know that only Shroomish can put enemies to sleep by learning Spore. This means that Breloom doesn’t learn Spore.

Therefore, you have to prevent the evolution of Shroomish until level 40. This is when he can learn Spore.

You can finally evolve him to Breloom once he learns it, and just like that! He will have Spore! 🥳.


Scarlet Pokémon- Persian

Persian is a normal-type Pokémon that has access to almost every ideal move for catching in Pokémon. Among these many moves are false swipes and hypnosis. Persian’s typing ensures its false swipe gets STAB.

Its false swipe also gets a 1.5x multiplier thanks to the ability of the technician.

The following table shows a summary of the stats for Gallade, Breloom, and Persian.
