Pokémon Sleep It is, beyond all discussion, one of the most striking —and strange— proposals in the Pokémon universe. It is a mobile game in which all you have to do is sleep. And we mean it in the most literal sense of the expression. Fortunately, after years of delay, the title is ready for release.
In the last few hours, The Pokémon Company unveiled new details about this peculiar game, including when it will be released to the public. It is worth clarifying that the specific date of arrival on the market has not yet been confirmed, but it has been mentioned that it will be available during the summer of 2023. So those interested in trying it should wait until the middle of the year to enjoy it.
Pokémon Sleep It was announced in mid-2019, with a view to launching it in 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the game never reached potential users. Details regarding its development have also gone largely unnoticed for the past three years, so it is likely that many They won’t even remember their existence.
Now, through a couple of trailers, we have been able to learn a little more about what it proposes Pokémon Sleep and how you intend to achieve it. As we said at the beginning, it is about a title in which you play sleepingsince basically we are facing an application that will analyze the quality of our sleep.
Pokémon Sleep It will arrive in the middle of the year on iOS and Android
Every night before going to sleep, you should set the time you plan to wake up (as if it were an alarm) and leave the mobile near your pillow. So, Pokémon Sleep will be in charge of monitoring how you sleep. Depending on how deep your sleep is, the game will grade it into three types —dozing, snoozing and slumbering– and will attract sleeping creatures like you.
As The Pokémon Company explained, its new mobile game will be set on a small island. There we will see a Snorlax sleeping, while Professor Neroli studies his sleeping habits and those of the rest of the creatures that inhabit the place. Pokémon that sleep like you, They will appear every morning resting near the Snorlax.
To make things even more entertaining, the game developers promise to bring special features like discovering “rare” dream types based on each Pokémon species.
Pokémon Sleep It intends to be the other face of Pokémon Go, which was one of the great global rages in the pre-pandemic era. Undoubtedly, it is not a game that can appeal to everyone equally, but it is presented as a curious alternative and that tries to promote healthy sleep habits among players.
Another element to take into account is that, although Pokémon Sleep can be played using only a smartphone, users will be able to choose to get an additional accessory. Is about Pokemon Go Plus+, a small device in the shape of a Pokéball that is responsible for recording and analyzing our sleep wirelessly. It includes the voice of Pikachu, who can even sing us a lullaby.
