Hypnosis' accuracy is 70 in pokemon Pearl/Diamond
Thank you :) your answer is so detail. :D
No problem. hope I helped. :)
One thing to add, though, is that Dark Void is the only attack that can put any opposing Pokémon (besides Vital Spirit, Insomnia, Substitutes, etc.) to sleep.  Yawn doesn't affect Ghost types, Hypnosis doesn't affect Dark types, and Sleep Powder doesn't affect Grass types.
That sleep powder thing is Gen VI. 2 Yawn can hit ghost types you are reffering to attacks but status moves can hit.
