Effects

Yawn makes the target drowsy on the turn it is used. If the target is still on the field at the end of the next turn, it falls asleep. Sleeping Pokémon cannot move (with some exceptions such as Snore). Sleep lasts for 1-3 turns.

Pokémon with the abilities Insomnia or Vital Spirit, or those behind a Substitute cannot be put to sleep.
