 Sleep is an activity that is essential for supporting healthy brain development and general physical health. It is something that more people do not get enough of in this modern age as we spend a lot of our time on our phones or computers rather than getting some rest. This applies to children as well as adults. But one sleep app, Pokémon Sleep, is trying to change the sleeping patterns of the whole family.

The Pokémon Company will release its new app called Pokémon Sleep in the summer of 2023. The company first announced that they were creating such an app in 2019, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its release was pushed back multiple times. During a live stream meeting this week, the company released the two trailers to show loyal fans what to expect when it finally launches.

In a nutshell, the game is a sleep tracker. So just like in Pokémon Go, you have to track and capture a range of different Pokémon. Its premise is the same in Pokémon Sleep, but instead of walking around your neighborhood aimlessly looking for your next captures, you can interact with the Pokémon through how well you sleep.

To play, before you go to sleep, you set your alarm for the following day, and then you can start the game. Your sleep adventure takes place on a small island where you will meet Professor Neroli and Snorlax. Over the course of the night, your sleep will be measured and analyzed. Depending on how well you sleep and for how long, you will attract a range of different creatures.

Within the game, your sleeping is divided into three different categories; dozing, snoozing, and slumbering. Depending on which state of sleep you are in will decide on what creatures you attract and will gather around Snorlax. There is also a range of in-game sleep styles that people have near seen, like goofy sleep and droopy-eared sleep.

This game could be an activity where everyone can get involved, both adults and children, and it will promote a better sleeping pattern for kids, especially if they think they are going to get cool Pokémon if they sleep better. Like they say, “You gotta catch them all”.

Along with the release of the trailers for Pokémon Sleep, they also showed their new device called Pokémon Go Plus Plus. It is shaped like a Poké ball, where, in the cartoon, the Pokémon creatures are stored. It is an updated version of the Pokémon Go game accessory that is used with the app. This new version can work with both Pokémon Go and Pokémon Sleep. But if you do not want the expense of the new device, it is not necessary to play the new Pokémon game as your smartphone will suffice.

While Pokémon released two new trailers to excite their patient fans, they still haven’t released the exact date on which you will be able to download and play their new game. But it is expected to be released this year for both iOS and Android.
