The Pokémon Company has released a new trailer for Pokémon Sleep which showcases details of how to play the game and how the app tracks your sleeping pattern; check it out above. The app is scheduled to launch sometime in Summer 2023, but you can pre-register on Android starting today.
Track your sleep at night, study Pokémon sleep styles the next morning, and raise up Snorlax nice and big during the day! The more sleep you get, the bigger Snorlax becomes, the more Pokémon you’ll be able to meet, and the more sleep styles you’ll be able to discover.
Do you find yourself struggling to get energized in the morning? Has the same old bedtime routine grown tiresome? Now, you can turn your sleep into entertainment with Pokémon Sleep! Playing this game is simple: just place your smartphone by your pillow, then go to sleep. Just like that, waking up in the morning becomes something to look forward to!
Your adventure takes place on a small island where you’ll carry out research on how Pokémon sleep. You’ll work with large Snorlax who live on the island and Neroli, a professor who’s studying Pokémon sleep styles.
Place your smartphone by your pillow when you go to bed to record and measure your sleep. The longer you sleep, the higher your score in the morning, and the more Pokémon you’ll see appear around Snorlax. Your nights of sleep will be classified as one of three sleep styles—dozing, snoozing, or slumbering—and in the morning, Pokémon that sleep in similar ways will come gather around Snorlax.
You may even discover a Pokémon sleeping in a rare style you’d hardly ever get to see normally. Each Pokémon has a number of different sleep styles, so see how many you can discover to complete your sleep style dex.
Researching Pokémon sleep styles is even easier when you use Pokémon GO Plus +, which allows you to keep track of your sleep with the press of a button. Pokémon GO Plus + uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology to link with Pokémon Sleep. When it’s time for bed, just hold the device’s central button, place it by your pillow, and then go to sleep. Not only will Pokémon GO Plus + help measure your sleep data, but Pikachu’s familiar voice can give you cute prompts when it’s time to wake up or go to sleep.
Pokémon Sleep is planned to launch worldwide, excluding certain regions, in summer 2023, and Pokémon GO Plus + releases on July 14, 2023.
