Spin-off series games Trivia
Pokémon Yellow, there is a Trainer in the Pewter City Pokémon Center whose Jigglypuff puts the player's Pikachu to sleep after singing. Although the player's Pikachu will not follow them until it is talked to or until the player exits the Pokémon Center, Pikachu will not be inflicted with the sleep status at any point. Although sound-based moves were not flagged as such until Generation III, Sing's move index number falls near other Generation I sound-based moves: Growl, Roar, and Supersonic. In other languages
