Pokémon Sleep is the New Pokémon Mobile Game That Rewards Players for Sleeping

Pokémon Sleep

The Pokémon Company had a press conference in Tokyo, Japan and just announced a new Pokémon game called Pokémon Sleep. As the name for the new mobile game suggests, Pokémon Sleep is all about snoozing, turning sleeping into entertainment.

The president and CEO of the Pokémon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara explained that the new Pokémon gaming will “turn sleeping into entertainment“. The goal the company wishes to achieve with the new Pokémon Sleep game is that sleeping will be rewarded like walking is rewarded in the popular mobile game, Pokémon GO.

Coming in 2020, the mobile game will encourage players to get good amounts of healthy sleep through unique gameplay and special awards through the upcoming game.

The new Pokémon mobile game will also come with a brand new wearable device, called the Pokémon GO Plus Plus. That wasn’t a typo, by the way. Pokémon GO Plus is the (gimmicky) device Trainers wear to play Pokémon GO. Pokémon GO Plus Plus is intended to track users’ sleep, but can also be used during the day (or night) to catch Pokémon in Pokémon GO. During sleep time, it will connect to your phone via Bluetooth and will send and track sleep track data in your app.

The Pokémon Company didn’t divulge much more in terms of how the new game will be working, so we will have to wait for more details to be revealed.

Another Pokémon game was also announced called Pokémon Masters, which lets you battle alongside your favourite Pokémon Trainers from the main series RPGs.

The Pokémon Company also teased a Detective Pikachu mystery-solving game heading to the Nintendo Switch.

Pokémon Home was also announced during the press conference, which is a new and exciting cloud-based service that lets you amalgamate your entire Pokémon collection across the various platforms and a variety of Pokémon games. The service is set to launch in 2020.

Are you excited for Pokémon Sleep and the other announcements made by the Pokémon company during its press conference?
