Drowzee's Japanese name is "Sleepe" (スリープ)

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a SPECIAL ROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 minutes someone will say i love you or I'm SORRY
im sorrry i was scared i must posrt it to more times im so scared

Love the idea of drowzee using that long shnoz to create different sounds that affect people.  Since certain inaudible frequencies can create sensations of unease and fear in people, even make them feel like there's someone right behind them, this approach makes a lot of sense!

oops, forgot to mention this…
here it says that they injected a special dye in an acupuncture point in order to see the ki flow, a simple experiment which seems very plausible
i don't know if the experiment is acurrate or not, but i know that we don't know everything

i'm sad that you don't intend to take the psychic and ghost types to a extent, but nothing can't be done about abilities which beat (rational) logic
still can you take into consideration that psychic type may uses brain waves (i can think of beta and delta) to interfere with dark matter (which is said to fill 25% of the universe and has unknown, maybe gravitational, effects) or dark energy (pretty much the same, just that it is a force, 70%, it is considered that we can see less than 5% of the universe, scary), i think that may match up with the abilities of abra who is sleeping most of the time (delta waves) and is still aware of the surroundings (beta waves), if you would take dark matter as a flud the abra might "swim" his body through it, or "fish" others thoughts and might use dark energy for telekinesis
but still, i might be blabbering nonsense
i hope that you'll get inspiration for these two types and that you'll keep some reality law bending abilities
keep up with the good work

I think for the ghost and psychic pokemon you should go ahead and just make them psychic or ghost. I dont see value in dancing around those things.

That's a fair point, the only issue is that there's no way to approach the subject of "psychic powers" or "ghosts" from a scientific perspective.
That sort of thing is just magic. I could invent a totally fictional organ like a "psychic gland" or a "ghost bladder" and draw it in there, but in many ways I think that's worse than striving to actually explain the powers.
I'd definitely rather attempt to tether these concepts to real phenomena and actual biological examples in the real world. Lots of organisms use sound, echolocation, and sonic blasts to achieve the same effects as Drowzee's "psychic" abilities. The purpose of this project, in some small way, is to use Pokémon as a mirror of incredible real world phenomenon and as a lens that allows us to fully appreciate real biology. Not to lean double down on the silliest aspects of the Pokémon world and justify them with faux bone, blood, and organs.

Reading this makes me real curious how you'd approach Haunter.
