Welcome back to the Lab! Today our Pokemon is Sheamy!#022 SheamyNormal TypeSheep PokemonAnother cute one, eh? The Pokemon world is full of them, the fluffy, adorable creatures that you would have to be completely heartless to ignore. Sheamy is no exception, but be warned, behind it's fluffy exterior lie some unexpected powers! Luckily, in this form Sheamy has no desire to use it's talents for anything malicious.
Rather obviously, large groups of Sheamy are kept by farmers in large fields. Over the years, however, these farmers have learnt to never count their Sheamy as doing so tends to send them to sleep! Over the course of my research, it seems that the thick white wool that covers this Pokemon contains a very specific combination of chemicals which induces sleep in anyone; human or Pokemon. Each individual has a certain resistance to these chemicals, but they can effect everyone eventually. You may think that this would rather depress Sheamy, having all of its friends falling asleep around it, but truth be told, it finds joy in sleeping and will snuggle up to its trainer whilst they doze. Some insomniacs even use their Sheamy to help them get to sleep.
This aspect of the Pokemon is reflected in its Sweet Dreams ability, which has the chance to send the foe to sleep when Sheamy is sent in to battle. However, as its power is rather weak, this induced sleep only lasts for one turn in battle. Of course, if a trainer wants an even better chance to put the foe to sleep, Sheamy can learn the move Hypnosis. Sheamy's stats are more or less balanced, the only exceptions being it's slightly lower attack and higher speed.
Join us again soon to meet the evolved form of Sheamy, the rather intimidating Woolmare!
Thanks again to Rain!
