Effects

Sleep Powder puts the target to sleep, if it hits. 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.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Grassium Z and uses its Z-Power, Sleep Powder turns into Z-Sleep Powder and raises Speed one stage, in addition to its usual effect as above.
