It is becoming more and more common to have sleep problems in our daily lives – and here we know what we are talking about. After all, working hours and the pace of life in general end up affecting our rest. Nintendo wants to help us a little with this problem that affects the entire planet, so they have launched Pokémon Sleep.

“Do you find that you lack energy in the mornings, are you bored with the routine of going to bed? With Pokémon Sleep you can entertain yourself thanks to your sleep! Playing is very simple: just leave your mobile device near your pillow and go to sleep,” highlights the Japanese company in the statement they have published.

In other words, the idea is to gamify our sleep. To do this, they propose an adventure that “will take place on a small island where you will conduct research on how Pokémon sleep.” “You will have to work hand in hand with the huge Snorlax that inhabits this island and with Professor Neroli, who is studying the postures in which Pokémon sleep,” they indicate.

The game loop is quite fun, since the more hours of sleep you get, the more creatures you can find during that period: “The more you sleep, the higher your score will be when you wake up and the more Pokémon you will find around Snorlax. Your sleep cycle will be classified into one of the three types of sleep (light, medium or deep) and Pokémon with a similar pattern to yours will appear next to Snorlax”, they point out in the text, where they emphasize that we will even have Pokémon shinys, i.e. “special” when it comes to sleep. “You may even find a Pokémon sleeping in a very strange posture! Each Pokémon has different sleeping postures – will you be able to discover them all and complete your DormiDex?”

Along with this announcement comes an additional one, and that is that with the Pokémon GO Plus + accessory we will be able to get more details. “Investigating the sleep of Pokémon will be much easier with the Pokémon GO Plus + accessory, with which you can record your sleep at the touch of a button. Pokémon GO Plus + uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology to connect with Pokémon Sleep.”

Thanks to this tool, when it is time to go to bed, by pressing and holding the central button of the accessory and placing it next to the pillow, the device will be able to record everything. All that’s left to do is go to sleep. “In addition to helping you record your sleep, thanks to Pokémon GO Plus +, you’ll be able to have Pikachu alert you when it’s time to wake up or go to sleep,” they emphasize.

The idea is that Pokémon Sleep will arrive worldwide, with the exception of certain regions, in the summer of 2023, while the Pokémon GO Plus + accessory will arrive on July 21, 2023. The app itself will be available for both the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.
