Pokemon Sleep Is A Sleep Analysis Game Coming to Android and iOS

Pokemon Sleep, time revealed Monday’s Pokemon Presents livestream, a sleep-analyzing game coming to Android and iOS this summer. We’ve been waiting a while for this — The Pokemon Company first announced it back in 2019.

You play by placing your phone on your pillow when you sleep, so it can record and measure your sleep. The longer you sleep, the higher your score in the morning and the more Pokemon will gather around the sleeping legend (and Pokemon Sleep mascot) Snorlax.

Your sleep will be classified as one of three styles — dozing, snoozing or sleeping — and Pokemon that sleep in similar ways will appear in the morning. Each Pokemon has many different sleep styles to discover and log your sleep style dex.

Pokemon Sleep app menus are displayed on three phones.

The game analyzes and categorizes the time you spend sleeping.

Those who prefer not to put their phone on their pillows can also use the Pokemon Go Plus + accessory, which connects to Pokemon Sleep via Bluetooth. Once it’s connected, you hold the device’s central button, place it on your pillow and go to sleep. In addition to measuring your sleep, a Pikachu voice can prompt you when it’s time to wake up or go to sleep.

Like the Pokemon Go Plus device that came out in 2016, it’s compatible with Pokemon Go — you can use it to spin up Pokestops and catch Pokemon in the wildly popular mobile game. Linking the new device to Pokemon Go will allow you to catch an adorable Snorlax wearing a nightcap.

An upcoming update will also allow you to use Pokemon Sleep data in Pokemon Go, but it’s unclear what to do with that data.

Pokemon Sleep hasn’t gotten a firm release date, but Pokemon Go Plus+ is coming out on July 14th – it’s likely that the app will arrive around the same time this summer.
