We finally have an update Pokemon Sleep, four years after it was first announced. Finally, we can get a good Pokemon themed break.
Nintendo revealed our first look at Pokemon Sleep on Monday, sharing a teaser trailer(Opens in a new tab) as well as a video explaining how the game will work – although whether or not this app can be classified as a game is debatable.
I still play Pokemon as an aggressive kid and I don’t regret it
Pokemon Sleep it’s basically a Pokemon-themed sleep tracker that celebrates getting a little good night’s rest. Players leave their phone next to them when they go to sleep, pretending Pokemon Sleep record and analyze their sleep overnight.
The app also lets you set an alarm, or play soothing sounds to help you drift off.
It will then provide statistics such as how long you were asleep and the time it took to fall asleep, as well as breaking down your sleep into three “sleep styles”: Dozing, Snoozing, and Slumbering. Judging from screenshots of the app, these seem to coincide with sleep stages.
Pokémon that share the same sleeping style as you will later appear in the app, gathering around the sleeping giant Snorlax that is the focal point of the game’s island setting. There are also “rare in-game sleep styles” that may appear, such as “Goofy Sleep” or “Droopy-Eared Sleep,” and each Pokémon species has different sleep styles.
Professor Neroli, a new character will be introduced in Pokemon Sleep who is researching the sleeping habits of Pokémon.
Although it is not necessary, Pokemon Sleep They will also pair with Pokémon GO Plus+, a new wearable that was originally announced in 2019 before being delayed. The Pokémon GO Plus will follow, this device will alert Pokémon GO players nearby PokéStops, and there’s also an accelerometer to track your sleep.
There’s also a Pikachu trapped inside, who “gets friendlier the more you sleep together” and can be made to sing your lullabies, in case you’ve been trying to fall asleep with repetitive refrains of “pika pika Pikachu.”
Pokemon Sleep This isn’t the first time Pokemon have flirted with health gadgets. In 1998, Nintendo released Pokémon Pikachu, a digital pet and pedometer that allows players to purchase in-game items using currency earned by walking. Next came the Pokéwalker pedometer in 2009, which could connect to it Pokemon Gold Heart or SoulSilver to grant Pokémon experience based on the player’s rank count. And, of course, millions of people got moving when Pokémon GO was released in 2016.
However, Pokemon Sleep It is the franchise’s first venture into sleep tracking. I’m not sure I’d call this a game, per se, but at least it might encourage some kids to go to bed on time.
Originally scheduled for release in 2020, Pokemon Sleep it will now launch in summer 2023.
