Puts enemies to sleep then eats their dreams. Occasionally gets sick from eating bad dreams.
Yellow If you sleep by it all the time, it will sometimes show you dreams it has eaten in the past.
Gold If you think that you had a good dream, but you can't remember it, a DROWZEE has probably eaten it.
Silver It remembers every dream it eats. It rarely eats the dreams of adults because children's are much tastier.
Crystal When it twitches its nose, it can tell where someone is sleeping and what that person is dreaming about.
Ruby
Sapphire
If your nose becomes itchy while you are sleeping, it’s a sure sign that one of these POKéMON is standing above your pillow and trying to eat your dream through your nostrils.
FireRed A descendent of the legendary animal baku, which is said to eat dreams. It is skilled at hypnotism.
LeafGreen Puts enemies to sleep, then eats their dreams. Occasionally gets sick from eating only bad dreams.
Emerald If your nose becomes itchy while you are sleeping, it’s a sure sign that a DROWZEE is standing above your pillow and trying to eat your dream through your nostrils.

Sun A Pokémon that nourishes itself by eating dreams, it is thought to share common ancestry with Munna and Musharna.
Moon It finds really fun dreams tasty. When it makes friends with people, it may show them the most delicious dreams it’s ever eaten.
Ultra Sun It can be spotted near recreational facilities, intending to eat the pleasant dreams of children who enjoyed themselves there that day.
Ultra Moon It puts its prey to sleep and devours their dreams. It seems that bad dreams taste sour, so Drowzee doesn’t particularly like eating them.
