Nintendo has finally explained how its upcoming sleep-tracking game Pokémon Sleep will actually work.
Outlined in the gameplay video above, this highly anticipated smartphone app will let players add Pokémon to their sleep-style traits by sleeping. Players place their smartphone or Pokémon GO Plus+ next to their pillow overnight, and the app tracks their sleep quality and style.
Snorlax becomes the player’s primary companion within the app, but sleeping in different styles, such as snoozing, snoozing, and slumbering, will result in more Pokémon sleeping in the same way. Since Pokémon have several different sleep styles, there are multiple forms to add to sleep style Dex.
Getting better quality sleep, such as sleeping longer, earns the player points that increase Snorlax’s sleepiness power, allowing it to attract more Pokémon. For example, if Snorlax gets 8 and a half hours of sleep, he gets 100 points for Snorlax, but if she sleeps only 4 hours, Snorlax gets about 50 points.
The game seems to give different Pokemon depending on the type of sleep the player has. For example, it was shown to move the body with Togepi in ‘swinging sleep’, and to talk while sleeping side by side with Pudding in ‘singing sleep’.
Players will be given a new Site and Snorlax every Monday, and these changes will also attract different Pokémon.
The game was announced in May 2019 and still has no release date, but it finally woke up in February of this year, revealing new details and a summer release date.
