Pokémon Sleep is an upcoming spin-off Pokémon game developed for iOS and Android. The game features Snorlax as its central Pokémon, with other Pokémon appearing around Snorlax based on the player's sleeping pattern and sleeping style. Players will work together with the Pokémon sleep researcher Professor Neroli to research Pokémon sleep styles, and record them in the Sleep Style Dex. Starting Monday every week, players will begin a new round of sleep research with a new location and a new Snorlax.
Today's trailer showcases Pokémon Sleep's core gameplay, where players will seek to improve their Snorlax's Drowsy Power by making sure to get a good night's sleep. The game tracks players' sleep by having them place their mobile device or Pokémon GO Plus + next to their pillow, and using the sensors in-built in those devices to track sleep movements, the noises players make during their sleep, and the total time spent sleeping.
Pokémon Sleep was originally announced over 4 years ago at the Pokémon 2019 Press Conference on May 29th, 2019. First announced for release in 2020, after missing that date the app was effectively vaporware until more information was eventually revealed in Pokémon Presents on February 27th of this year, in which it was announced to be releasing in the northern hemisphere summer. As of writing, the app is scheduled to release in late July, however an exact launch date still has not been given.
